Question: What is the purpose of a maid cafe?

Maid cafés (Japanese: メイド喫茶 or メイドカフェ, Hepburn: meido kissa or meido kafe) are a subcategory of cosplay restaurants found predominantly in Japan. In these cafés, waitresses, dressed in maid costumes, act as servants, and treat customers as masters (and mistresses) in a private home, rather than as café patrons.

Maid cafes have been in Japan for awhile now and they are popular among otakus (Japanese term for people with obsessive interests, commonly the anime and manga fandom) and tourists. They are cafes with waitresses dressed as maids and they treat their customers as “masters”.

What do maids say in maid cafes?

There are many rituals and additional services offered at many maid cafés. Maids greet customers with Welcome home, Master (Mistress, My lady)! (お帰りなさいませ、ご主人様(お嬢様)!, Okaerinasaimase, goshujinsama (ojousama)!) and offer them wipe towels and menus.
