Madoka Magica Café
The Madoka Magica Café was an event that took place in Good Smile Café, a café specializing in otaku culture. Located in Matsudo-chi, Chiba prefecture, it was entirely devoted to the Madoka universe: signs and interior decorations, but also special food served for the occasion, official merchandise for display with some items available for purchase.
The event took place from May 3rd until July 18th, 2011. Because of its popularity, with waits commonly exceeding 2-3 hours according to cafe twitters , the event was extended to August 14, 2011. The Madoka Magica cafe event ended on August 14, 2011. The cafe is now continuing with normal operations.
In addition to their regular menu of traditional dishes and drinks, the café offers a "special menu" of Madoka-themed dishes for the event. Note that at times items were sold-out or otherwise not available.
