Maid cafés (メイド喫茶 ) are a subcategory of cosplay restaurants found predominantly in Japan. In these cafés, waitresses dressed in maid uniforms act as servants, and treat customers as masters (and mistresses) in a private home, rather than as café patrons.
For 2014, Florida Anime Experience is proud to welcome back this popular concept to our convention with Maid Café Latte (www.Facebook.com/MaidCafeLE)
The team from Wasabi Anime® sent scouts to Akihabara in Japan for the past couple of years in order to research making convention-based Maid Cafés more authentic. Maid Café Latte is the result of this and we are striving to create a new, unique, and exciting experience for anime con attendees. Please note: OUR MAID CAFE IS AN ALL AGES EXPERIENCE!
Florida Anime Experience 2014 will host four (4) seatings of the café in the Manga Library (the Citrus C room) in the Conference Center.
- FRIDAY at 6:00 PM. (Seating begins at 5:45 PM)
- SATURDAY at 12:30 PM. (Seating begins at 12:15 PM)
- SATURDAY at 6:00 PM. (Seating begins at 5:45 PM)
- SUNDAY at 3:00 PM. (Seating begins at 2:45 PM)
Admission to each seating is $13 (in advance or at the door.) Seating is limited to 32 seats per cafe session.
As an added bonus this year, drinks served in Maid Café Latte will be authentic boba drinks courtesy of our friends at Chibi’s Boba!
