AniMaid Cafe is a maid café with an anime twist. We are here to entertain and serve otaku like ourselves who would like to have the chance to experience the ultimate in modern customer service/entertainment experience. AniMaid Café has super moe maids to serve their masters with love and hosts who are gentle and charming to serve our lady guests. We often use cute (or “Moe”) food service, game play at the tables, and/or stage entertainment including song and dance. Some people have compared it to mild traditional Geisha entertainment and service with an Anime emphasis and Victorian costuming and formality. Our goal is to promote Japanese Culture through maid cafe, anime, and music. We bring the service and feeling similar to maid café following the pop-Japanese culture model created in Akihabara, Japan and to promote the unique anime lifestyle. Please visit us at or our forum:
