French-Japanese inspired café and dining concept Café Kitsuné has debuted in Singapore with a store in the Capital Singapore shopping centre.
The boutique café group said its new location, which features indoor and outdoor terraced seating, blends its signature French-Japanese design with Singaporean-inspired elements.
Alongside its specialty coffee and bakery menu, the café will also sell branded retail merchandise such as tote bags, cups and clothing.
Speaking to 5THWAVE magazine earlier this year, Johanna Lellouche, Director of Business Development and Operations at Café Kitsuné, said Asia is a key growth market for the boutique operator.
Launched in Tokyo in 2014, Café Kitsuné now operates 22 cafés globally and has a growing presence in South East Asia. The company has outlets in Indonesia, the Philippines and Thailand.
The boutique café group also has stores in Paris, New York, London, Seoul and Shanghai, with a new store in Dubai to open in the first quarter of 2023.
Capital Singapore, which also hosts the Capitol Theatre and the Capitol Kempinski Hotel Singapore, opened in 2015. Café Kitsuné joins fellow café brands Berthold Delikatessen and Hoshino Coffee at the location.
World Coffee Portal forecasts the Singaporean branded coffee shop market will exceed 790 outlets by 2025.
