Took these photos when filming for Culture Japan TV last Summer but didn't get the chance to upload until now ^^;
@ Home is one of the more popular maid cafes in Akibahara. They got two branches which always have queues of folks waiting to om nom while being treated like a master.

First we need to go and grab our press passes. We always ask extra for Saber too.

Today we are going to visit the Don Quixote branch of At Home Cafe. Get off at Akihabara station and just walk along Chuo Dori.

Saber likes to ride shoulder.

When you get to the 5th floor, you will see a queue of folks lining up and a load of maids inside running about.

Please make a line from this bored.

All tables that we saw at the Donki branch are counters where the maids will power up your food n play games with you. I think they had another room with standard tables but didn't check.

More customers getting their food powered up.

Some maids charging up their powers.

メイドさんがたくさん走り回っているのがかわいい。

Some of the maids sing too and you can pick up their CDs when paying the bill.

Back outside filming the intro. You can see some of what we filmed in the 1 hour digest below at the 09:50 mark.

Load of cute maids everywhere!

5615515566_c5da0bd4b0_o

Saber joins me for food.

5614935493_ef352b2e97_o

Flicking through the menu. Everything looks good!

5614935571_874156ae96_o

Quick chat with the viewers before continuing.

First up is a beverage. When maids bring any food item along, they would always make it taste better by providing a power up. This usually involves the customer playing along with the maid as she asked you to say things like "Nyan Nyan" and "Moe Moe Kyuuuun!"
If you think you would find it difficult to play along then don't go!

Time for the main dish. The maid explains the egg as being a little chicklet and asks if she can cut it open @.@
And before I forget, Dans joined us for filming and took some of these photos.

5614936355_53293314c7_o

Our maid asks what I'd like her to paint on my omelette. I ask what customers normally ask her and she said things like dogs n cats so I asked her to draw Saber instead ^^;

5615516874_4a04c88404_o

But I'm not allowed to eat until its been powered up.

5615517000_d2f723bc1e_o

This is the bit where shes building up energy - a bit like how Ryu does in Ninja Gaiden.

5614936965_4caec8cb93_o

As you can see - it looks much better after a power up.

5614937089_3fde3247e2_o

Saber-chan! Kawa......ii.....

5615517770_4ae23c1896_o

Bumped into reader NagatoPyon at the cafe.

5614937721_1f1d13663c_o

Vandalizing a shoe that I found lying around.

5614938093_246014e0f6_o

Hmmm. Doesn't look tasty. Wonder why...

5614938433_fcc38e1191_o

Aha! Now it looks tastier than ever.

5615518592_0d7fa2b051_o

Mustn't forget to feed the daughter.

5614938777_f4a28110ff_o

Checking out the contraptions near the exit.

5615518994_114bc289c3_o

You can also have photos with some of the maids too. They charge extra for this service and only allow the photo to be taken on their Polaroid though.

5615519070_cc79c5439c_o

You can also pick up some moe cookies too.

5614939195_631cb86699_o

On the way out, one can find these small towels in another shop.

5614939301_611e5a41cd_o

Akihabara train station towel. Who wants one?

5614939433_5a1fed91e8_o

You can also pick up some pants in a gatcha too.

Snap outside with NagatoPyon.
