FIRST LOOK: NEW Minion Cafe Coming to Universal Studios Hollywood
Universal Studios Hollywood has announced that the Minion Cafe will be opening soon. Borrowing theming cues from Super Silly Fun Land featured in Despicable Me, the dining spot will feature the zany Minions. The colorful restaurant will offer grilled cheese sandwiches, chicken, and nachos, among other options. The opening date has not been announced, but menu items will be available à la carte during the Taste of Universal event which begins March 12.
Minion Cafe will offer outdoor seating, which is surrounded by themed elements such as Minion figures, lighting, and other items.
Bright, bold art and a neon sign add to the Minion experience regardless of where guests choose to eat.
Minion Cafe isn’t merely limited to a colorful and vibrant exterior, though, as the menu offers a variety of staple dishes along with some unique offerings, including ramen and multiple dessert options.
