So yesterday my friend and I went to a maid cafe in Akihabara. A maid cafe is where young girls dress up in maid outfits and serve really cute food and drinks and often talk in a very cutesy way to their customers.
Maid cafes are popular among the male crowd, but females and families can be found in them as well.
So my friend and I decided to go to on and see what it's like.
Of course it's rather expensive (around $26), but it's worth going to at least once.
We got the parfait set where we got a delicious (and adorable) chocolate bear shaped parfait ice cream, a photo taken with one of the maids, and a souvenir key chain.
Oftentimes the maids would come to your table and ask you to do cutesy things with them, like "make a heart with your hands with me! YAY!!!!"
it was a fun and worthwhile experience. I know that there are butler cafes as well where it's geared toward the female audience, with handsome men dressed as butlers. But I haven't yet found one.
I heard they are in Shinjuku, but I haven't gone yet.
We shall see....
