Once you are in Akihabara, you will see maids on every corner advertising their maid cafe! Of course Bo was really excited to go to a maid cafe!
I helped chose a cafe that was a little bit away from the main road and was less crowded--Heart of Hearts. (There was only one other guy there--an obvious 'regular'--when we arrived at opening!) The maid cafe had a school theme and we had to sit at a desk and agree to all of the rules of the cafe when we entered.
Bo got omurice. The maid actually forgot how to write the character for 'moe' -__- haha. He bought a set with a drink. I got a tower of pancakes! It was so good, but there was no way I could finish it!
Not to mention, I made sure we went to a maid cafe on Bo's birthday--first, because I knew that's what he wanted and secondly, because I knew this maid cafe's do something special for birthdays!!
Bo got a special cake, sung happy birthday, and we got a picture with our maid! After she took the polaroid picture she drew a cute kitty and Happy Birthday. Such a cute momento!
We got to stay there for about an hour. The other customer had paid for the maid to sing a song, so we saw the performance too! It was a karaoke song.
I recommend this cafe if you want to find a cafe that is low key and more personal! Here is a link to their website.
Let me know about any maid cafes you have been to!
