So basically a new japanese maid cafe opened up in my city (toronto), and me and @lonewolf were curious so we decided to check it out. It was actually legit and pretty good, and loved it. Food and service were 10/10. The maids were actually japanese and the performances were legit. One of them was even an idol back in japan.

I would go to one just to check it out but there's none around my area, I didn't even know that they existed outside Japan.

Anything they try to do outside of Japan is going to be sooo fucking mediocre simply because of the rules and regulations outside of Japan on that kind of entertainment.

Do you really want to see a bunch of husky white chicks dressed up like maids? It's going to suck. I'd put money on it sucking. 95% of my shit, 5% benefit of the doubt.

lol you just had to mention me eh?

It honestly wasn't that bad or creepy/weird.

Most of the staff could speak perfect English, it was just some of the maids that came directly from Japan that didn't understand so well, it was fun trying to talk to them in broken Japanese though. The food was average. The performance was interesting. I took a short video, they don't dance around too much in this one, but I actually recognized the song. Not sure if I wanna go again, but it was a unique experience at least .

I might as well go to one. I see them portrayed in anime all the time so I must be good.

The only question I have is who at the resturant has to clean up all of the messes. Do they have janitors or actual maids? If I drop my japanese taco on the ground how will Onee-sama clean it up?

I want to go to one, but I'm not at all attracted to Japanese girls or Asian Girls. If a maid cafe were to open up in my town I'd hope the maids weren't all Japanese. But heck, if they're cute, why not.

same. i'd rather see some real french maids.though it must be kinda akward sitting around with neckbeards, eating kawaii food and listen to girls perform bad j-pop songs. had the chance in tokyo but wasn't brave enought....

Dayummm

We have a maid cafe here in Seattle, I haven't been but I'm too convinced it will disappoint me. Maybe I should invite my crew to go with me some day before we graduate. College ain't over yet for them.

There used to be a maid cafe in Detroit that had all fat black people as the waitresses and not an ounce of Japanese culture other than just the food. It's closed now though.

I feel uncomfortable when a waiter pours my wine for me. I don't like to be served so I would probably hate a maid cafe.

No, as stated by @Nigami_Shin, French maids were around in the 19th century. Did they look weird? Probably, but just look up French Maids on Google and Imagine them serving you, minus the fact the Kawaii and J-pop crap.

Yo, you should apply for work there over the summer. They're hiring kitchen staff.

Seems like a pretty chill environment to work at.

Sounds super neat. I'd probably only go as far as to peek inside of one to get a quick look. Dunno, I admit to being the guy that's pretty likely to sweat bullets in a place like that.

I've eaten at one at a weaboo convention. The maids were pretty cute and not fat/greasy weebs. The food was ridiculously overpriced though. So I wouldn't go there again

I would try it once just to know what's it like. I've heard maid cafes can be pretty weird or even disturbing though. If I can get my parents to Japan with me I'll take them to one without telling them what exactly a maid cafe is and laugh at their faces while the maids do their thing. Especially my stepfather isn't used to weird stuff so that would be hilarious.

I went to the Maid Cafe in Akihabara next to the big SEGA building. it was fun and cheesy with the girls dancing and singing and a table of drunk salarymen singing along doing all the hand gestures along with the girls.

Certainly something to do, though I kind of wish I was about as drunk as the Salarymen.

I had a cake with a drawing of a cat next to it.

Cor blimey! Toronto is only.. *looks it up on Google* 112.9 km aways! Too far for me, better to wait for my planned* trip to Japan with my friend to experience that thing.

*In the planning stages for 2? years. Awaiting financial liquidity to get it from "planned" to holy s**t we're in Japan!

Cool thing for them Torontoians! Hope they achieve a profit from their endeavor. Sucks that it's so far away :(

I dunno, but I heard there are a lot of people who find it kinda uneasy to be there because of reasons. I haven't really heard the reasons myself.

I know they are designed for individual patrons as well. But its just not the type of place I would go in alone.

I have never been to a maid cafe but I want to visit one some day to see what it is like. I will be in Toronto next month for work maybe I'll check it out if I have time. It would be hard trying to convince my co workers to join me though. I really don't want to go there alone for some reason.

I've been to one in Akihabara in Japan. It was pretty neat, if you can speak japanese the maids like to have conversations with you, they ask you what anime you like and you talk about it for a while. Then they go do a kind of performance for you on stage and you have to swing this light saber thingy to support them. Awkward as fuck but a lot of fun.
