At maid cafes you can enjoy the feeling of being the master of your own domain; the maids that tend to you will call you “goshujin-sama” (meaning “master”), or “ojo-sama” (meaning “mistress.”)
Some maid cafes may have a table charge (you might want to ask if you don’t see it clearly written somewhere) and all require you to order one drink or food item per hour.
A staple menu item at many cafes is “omu-raisu” (omelet rice) which is a dish composed of ketchup-chicken rice topped with an omelet and ketchup sauce. Most of the menu are decorated with animals and hearts to feel cute at first impression. Many maid cafes will write a special message in ketchup to squeeze out on top of the omelet. A pretty standard message is “萌え” (“moe”) which means a certain kind of adorableness that otaku fall head over heels for.
If the maid café is not crowded, sometimes one of the maids come and sit on your table and start talking with you.

Depends on the maid cafes, they serve their original services.
One common rule in a maid café is that photographs of maids or the café interior are forbidden. However, customers may have the option of paying an extra fee in order to get his or her photograph taken with a maid, possibly hand-decorated by the maid. It means you have to be careful with how much they are going to charge you for this.
You probably have to read the rules written on the table or wall.
If you follow the rules then you definitely will feel like you are inside of the anime world.
Bring your friends and meet some maids in Maid café!
