Feel like your Instagram has been lacking magic lately, in the absence of the unicorn bites? Great news: the Hello Kitty Cafe Truck is coming back to Austin on Saturday, June 10, bringing adorable baked goods and swag in a bright pink package. The Sanrio truck is returning to Barton Creek Square, outside the Men’s Warehouse, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Arriving early is advisable.

Offerings from the iconic feline’s bakery include a rainbow macaron box set with a surprise character design and a four-pack of sugary sweet mini-cakes. The truck will also sell bow-shaped bottles of water, shirts, mugs and Hello Kitty’s signature headband.

The super cute mobile cafe has been traveling the country since its debut at Hello Kitty Con in 2014. It last appeared in Austin in November (where it reportedly sold out by 6:45 p.m.), and will head to Plano next weekend. Devoted fans might also consider a trip to California to visit the Hello Kitty Cafe pop-up container in Irvine before it ends a year-long residency this July, or the permanent Hello Kitty Mini Cafe near Los Angeles.
