Originally known for their brick-and-mortar restaurant Momofuku Noodle Bar, The Momofuku Shop features some of the fan-favorite Asian-American cooking accessories online. 

The company does more with their cart by providing additional ways to shop, the status of shipping costs, and a clear outline of the products you added.

Momofuku’s mini cart

Momofuku uses their iconic orange to show the status of the cart. This moves as customers add more items to their cart. Once they receive the free shipping threshold, the orange icon moves to the right side of the status bar to celebrate that a customer has received free shipping.

Momofuku’s mini cart empty state

To the left of the cart, there is a call out for some of the brand’s most loved products in an upsell. When a customer has not added anything to their cart, the cart still features the upsell so that they can easily add some of the most loved products.
