Welcome to Cafe Hoshi: SacAnime’s Own Maid and Butler Cafe Experience. Our talented and friendly staff will keep you laughing, and delight you with snacks, games, dancing, prizes, and more. It’s the perfect place for a mid-convention break!

We now have eight showtimes throughout the weekend, and have increased the amount of seating per show to 100 guests maximum. Each table can sit up to ten guests, so if you are in a party larger than ten, you will need to be divided among multiple tables. (Don’t worry, you will have fun no matter where you sit!) Also, if your party buys all ten seats at a table, you get to select a SPECIFIC maid or butler!

Now that we are at the Convention Center, we are able to bring back our tasty treats! However, the meal is optional, so if you’ve already eaten, or would rather just sit down with a cold beverage, you can still get the “show only” ticket. Vegetarian options will be available for all shows, and we can give you a take-out box for your leftovers!

$15 for “Deluxe” Ticket
Includes Freshly Made Pastries, your Choice of Asian Beverages, and Gift Pack

$10 for “Show Only”
Includes your Choice of Asian Beverages and Gift Pack

NOTE: You can upgrade from “Show Only” to “Deluxe” before or during the show, if you are not sure if you’ll be hungry ahead of time. ~_^

VIP Only Show – Friday 9:30pm-11:30pm
VIP badge holders may attend the special “VIP Only” Friday night show. This special late night show is longer than the standard shows, has a unique menu, and exclusive activities and performances. However, this is not an “adult” show, and kids are always welcome.

Tickets are available starting at 9am at the Cafe Hoshi Ticket Table. Ballroom 308, Convention Center, 3rd Floor.

Standard Showtimes

Cafe Hoshi offers NINE standard shows during the weekend. These are one hour long, and open to anyone with a valid registration.

Special Showtimes

Breakfast Cafe – Friday and Saturday from 10am-12pm
Instead of our regular “show format”, where guests are assigned to tables with specific maids or butlers, this is special two hour long “open format” cafe. Guests my sit anywhere they choose, enjoy breakfast pastries and beverages, and staff will circulate throughout the room. Guests are free to enter or leave at any point during this two hour block, so there’s no pressure about making it in time for line up or seating.

VIP Only Show
VIP badge holders may attend the special “VIP Only” Friday night show! A VIP Badge is required to enter this special show, so please only purchase a ticket if you have upgraded your registration to VIP!

Sunday “Anything Goes” Show – Dark World!
For our cafe finalé, guests will be transported to the parallel universe of the Dark World. Get a sneak peek at the upcoming web series from the folks at Cafe Hoshi!
