Hello Kitty fans, brace: parent company Sanrio is bringing its cafe truck featuring the cartoon feline over to Austin on Saturday, December 3. The truck will be holed up outside Barton Creek Square, specifically in front of the Men's Warehouse from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. It’s safe to say long lines will form.

The truck will serve up adorable baked goods in the form of Hello Kitty macarons featuring the cat figure and water bottles in the shape of her signature bow. Additional swag includes mugs, shirts, and headbands.

The rolling Hello Kitty cafe is already making the Texas rounds, hitting up Houston and Dallas this month. It’s been traveling across the country, including stops in Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Miami, and other cities.

The truck was originally launched to promote the first stateside Hello Kitty brick and mortar cafe in Southern California, which opened over the summer. There’s another one in Hawaii. The truck's first appearance was at, of all things, a Hello Kitty convention held in Los Angeles back in October 2014.
