We were just got out of Sonata after buying some ribbons for Aina ballet shoes, and we still had about 45 minutes to burn before Aina had to leave for her ballet class. So we were looking for a cafe at Orchard Central to hang out, eat something light, and I could sew Aina’s new ribbon to her shoes. Then, we passed this super cute cafe, the Pompopurin Cafe…
Pompompurin is one of the Sanrio characters… And he is a golden retriever dog named after purin — custard pudding in Japanese. He sorta looks like a purin.
The cafe was super cute. We were seated in one of the houses, and each seat has a Pompompurin stuffed animal for us to hug. Aina fell in love with it immediately…
This cafe opened a few months back, and the first few weeks of its opening, there was always a looooong line to get in. But today, there was no line at all! I guess, either we came at a weird hour, or the initial popularity of the cafe had waned off.
Since we had our lunch earlier, we only ordered small items. I got THE purin, Aina got a purin drink. And I thought they were pretty yummy… And Aina was melting by the cuteness… She was hoping we could take one of the stuffed Pompompurin home.
We didn’t end up finishing what we ordered, because we had to leave for Aina’s ballet class… But I think we will be back soon.
