Visited this place to experience a maid cafe, since it's popular here. Ordered the pancakes, and the taste was average. I feel there's only one cute maid there, with the name of Aina. Took a instant picture with her (chargeable). English is an issue, but thankfully I was with my Japanese friend. Not that impressed. Not sure if all the... More

I did not really know what to expect from this one. A friend, who previously lived in Tokyo, recommended me to bring my wife and two kids to a maid cafe. He did not have any specific recommendations so I asked my concierge service, and they sent us to Pinafore. The place, which sits straight out of the Akihabara station,... More

We had the sweetest maid, and the cake was actually quite delicious. It was fun, I would come again.

Cute, intimate, friendly environment. The Maids are friendly and inviting while the food is beautiful in quality and presentation. The ambiance is cute and intimate while not cluttered. Would recommend. Very convenient relative to the station as well. :)

A very relaxed and nice cafe with smiling friendly maids. Fine for anyone to enjoy and see what a maid cafe is about.

Entrance fee is ¥500 You can't take pictures of the maids without their permission but can do so at an extra cost. Atmosphere - Smoking is permitted and the space is not big. Can't avoid the second hand smoke. This place needs a face lift - everything looks old, dingy, which brought down the atmosphere. Maids are nice, English is... More
