The Cosplay Cafe Hawaii is a third-party that runs the Cosplay Cafe at Kawaii Kon in affiliation with the Anime Manga Society at UH Manoa. The cafe is a place to train in hospitality and has incorporated a lot of the modern Maid/Butler cafe trends.All tips go to making the Cosplay Cafe experience for guests and volunteers alike better!

Reservation FAQ

Why the change in the system?

During Kawaii Kon 2022, we had such a long line of people going out the door which caused an issue for Manga Library and the other groups in the room. We decided from this year, we would try out theRSVP system with a set time so people could enjoy the Cosplay Cafe without having to wait in a long line! We also wanted to give a better experience for those that came this year!

How do I RSVP?

You can RSVP through the big purple button above the FAQ that says "RSVP Here!!" (Currently TBA)

How does it work?

1) Fill out the reservation through the form
2) Come 5 to 10 minutes before your reservation so we can go over our rules with you!
3) If you are late, your seat will be given to the Walk-Ins!
4) You'll get to choose a table and receive a small gift from us as well (while supplies lasts!) that Walk-Ins won't receive!

So what if I just want to Walk-In?

We recommend coming 5 to 10 minutes before our Reservation times to either be put on the Waitlist (or just make a reservation through the form or let the Host/Hostess know and we'll see if we have seats available!)- If there are seats available before the session, we'll go over the rules with you and seat you!- If you come when a session has already started, we can seat you if a seat/table is available, but we will ask you to leave at the same time the session ends.- On Friday and Saturday from 8 PM to 10 PM and on Sunday from 4 PM to 5 PM, it will be Non-Reservation time! This means no RSVP needed!
