Pinafore Maid Cafe in Akihabara

What kind of place is a maid café?

Maids do their best to serve their Masters and Princesses. It's a place where you can enjoy tea and food while chatting with the maids. In maid cafés, customers are called “Masters” or “Princesses”.

Please tell me about the point card system.

Maid Cafe Pinafore's point cards are shared among all cafés. You get 1 point for every ¥1,000 you spend and the right to take pictures with our maids as a present when you reach 30 points. We issue point cards for free.

Do you have pictures of the café interiors?

Please check out our “ABOUT” page for an introduction of our cafés.

Is it okay for girls to go?

Of course! Maid Cafe Pinafore is a cheerful café welcoming everyone regardless of gender and age.

Is it okay for children to go there? Can we take children along?

Young Masters and Princesses are also welcome here. There are many who come home to Maid Cafe Pinafore as families. Our omelet with rice with drawings on them are very popular with our Young Masters and Princesses, so please bring your kids along!

Can the maid assigned to my seat always stick close to me?

The maids are giving their all so their Masters and Princesses get to relax. Because of that, they can't always stay by their Masters’ and Princesses' side, but please feel free to call them over.

Is it okay to take pictures inside the café?

Please refrain from taking pictures, videos, and audio recordings inside the café. Taking pictures of your food is okay though. Please be careful not to include the maids and other guests when taking your pictures.

Can I change seats in the café?

You may be asked to change seats at times of congestion, but as a general rule, please refrain from changing seats. Also, we don't accept requests to share seats if you're on the waiting list. Please inform a maid if you're meeting with a friend.

How much should my budget be?

Our menu prices are different for each café, but the average budget should be around ¥1,000 in the case of ordering a drink only, and ¥2,000 if you only plan on ordering a meal. We charge one order + cover charge (¥500) for every 60 minutes you stay at home with us.

What's a cover charge?

Unlike regular cafés, Maid Cafe Pinafore has many maids doing their best serving so that their Masters and Princesses can enjoy their time with us. Please think of it as an admission to a special world with experiences you can only enjoy here, like chatting with the maids and getting special services. We charge a cover charge of 500¥ for every 60 minutes of your stay.

Do you give any birthday surprises?

The maids here will celebrate your birthday! It’s only applicable from the day before to the day after your birthday, please bring something that can confirm your birthdate like a license, student ID, or insurance card.
