Ghost Neko’s Purranormal Maid Café

Ghost Neko's Purranormal Maid Café

We kindly invite you to Kumoricon's premier Maid Café at the Hyatt Regency Portland, with sessions running Friday through Sunday afternoon. Each session combines a sampling of a Japanese maid cafe experience with the community of an American convention, presented as a special dining event.

Each table is under the dedicated attention of a maid or butler, with games, food, and prizes. The Maid Café is a great place for a snack or to get away from the crowds at the OCC. Memorialize your experience with an exclusive pin and a signed photo from our staff.

Online pre-sales have now concluded. Walk-in seatings will be available.

The Maid Café offers both reservations and walk-ins, subject to seat availability. Parties may be grouped together as space allows but may also be split depending on seat availability.

Hours of operation

Friday: 12:30pm–8:00pm
Saturday: 10:30am–8:00pm
Sunday: 10:30am–2:00pm

Each session lasts 90 minutes. Please see the Kumoricon schedule or the reservation purchase form for session start times. Check-in starts 15 minutes prior to each session.

Table availability

  • Walk-ins:
    • Tables are given to people with reservations first. Smaller groups may be asked to pair with another group to use the most amount of seats per sitting.

    • Walk-ins will be seated in groups of five, when possible.
    • Walk-ins are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

  • Groups larger than eight:
    • Groups larger than eight will be split, subject to seating availability and table arrangements. We limit tables to eight guests in order to ensure that each Maid and Butler can dedicate their attention to everyone at the table.
