How many have you ticked off your list?
It seems the fates of character-themed cafés are rather volatile. It's either they tide through the hype and become permanent fixtures in the culinary scene, or unfortunately fizzle out, along with the demise of their adorable characters. So it doesn't come as a surprise that pop-up cafés look to be more popular amongst business owners, where they can cash in on these fun concepts without succumbing to the possibility of being irrelevant soon after. Well, not that we're complaining as most of them prove to be a 'first-and-last-time' kind of visit.
Here are 10 you should pop by before we (inevitably) welcome more next year:

This is one cafe pilgrimage true Friends fans won’t want to miss out. As the first and only cafe outside of the United States to be granted the intellectual property rights by Warner Brothers, the cafe has poured much attention into the details, decor, and of course, the food.
Get ready for an evening of nostalgia as you tuck into dishes like Janice’s Oh My God Baby Back Ribs ($39), Ahh Unagi ($36), and Phoebe’s I Can’t Eat Meat Steak ($69).
