The Kirby Café has been an adorable spot in Tokyo and Hakata for years now. To take in this kind of cuteness has always required a visit to the actual restaurant or its accompanying store, but a new development might be opening the door to Dream Land diners all over the country.

A Kirby Café online shop has opened for the first time, shipping out smiles and goods to fans in Japan. This has happened in response to closures related to the current state of emergency in the country due to Covid-19, which has similarly affected Super Nintendo World and other popular spots. Billed as a pop-up shop, this online storefront likely won’t be permanent but it does offer a look at some new offerings from Kirby and company.

Some new items have been made available during this time, particularly when it comes to watches and accessories. Among them are hairpins and earring sets of familiar Kirby symbols, like the Maxim Tomato, Star Rod, and Invincibility Candy. You can also pick up a necklace featuring Kirby riding along on Warp Star, wearing his Café chef hat with pride.

Unfortunately, shipping on all of these new items is limited to within Japan. Who knows what the future might bring for these lovely new items, be it a future home at the Café store itself or a wider release to hungry fans overseas.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
