What is a Maid Café?
Maid cafés are restaurants serving traditional Japanese food and desserts, with a staff of primarily young, cute waitresses and entertainers. In these cafés, waitresses dressed in maid costumes. The first Maid café was established in Tokyo, Japan in 2001 but maid cafés are becoming increasingly popular. They have since expanded overseas. Maid cafés were originally designed primarily to cater to the fantasies of male "otaku," obsessive fans of anime, manga and video games. However today the maid café phenomenon also attracts couples, women tourists.
