The Top 5 Tokyo Maid Cafes

January 3, 2007

Maid cafes are a popular, totally geeked-out phenomenon centered in the back alleys of Akihabara’s electric town. Their specialty? Girls dressed like French maid who say, "welcome back, master!" when you enter, delicate cakes and dainty dishes that make you feel like you’re in a fairytale, and walls lined with comic books, video games, and figurines that’s like chicken soup for the the otaku’s soul. Overall, these cafes provide superb subservient service to even the nerdiest, loneliest man in the neighborhood.

Here’s a roundup of some of the most popular maid cafes in the Akiba district, with links to reference for your next visit.

kittens on your omelet.
