    Café Life Game Guide Recipe Basics

    Cafe Life   The heart of your café is the food you serve and your drinks. Serving food and drinks is how you make your coins in the game. You can use these coins to buy more expensive items to prepare at your stations. On your stove you can select a dish to prepare and wait a specified time before it is ready to serve. Once it is ready to serve you’ll need to click the dish a few times until the extra ingredients are added to the dish. Once this is done your avatar will move the dish over onto the serving countertop and it will be served to your guests. You must serve your dishes in a timely manner or they will spoil and you’ll lose your coins. After serving clean the stove or coffee machine and it’s ready to go for the next serving.

    What To Serve For Beginners

    As a new player you’ll be eager to make some dishes and get money. There’s a few dishes you can make in the early stages of your game that won’t take a whole lot of time to prepare and you’ll get coins right away.

    Early Dishes:

    • Cappuccino - ready in 15mins (serves 22 earns 44 coins)
    • Espresso - Ready in 3 mins (serves 15 earns 30 coins)
    • Lemon Surprise - Ready in 15mins (serves 65 earns 130 coins)
    • Chocolate Pistachio - Ready in 5mins (serves 17 earns 34 coins)

    If you plan on playing for longer periods you can purchase dishes and coffee items that take longer to prepare. Be sure you don’t leave dishes for extended periods because they will spoil. You can use the above dishes to quickly generate your café some cash without having to worry about spoilage and losing your early income which can set you back. As you level up you’ll be able to add more counters and stoves for increased production.

    Seating/Decorations

    Cafe Life   Your guests will need seating to stay in your café. Be sure to buy inexpensive seating to begin with since you won’t have much income to work with. Don’t buy a couch just because it looks nice get something that will save you coins you can use to make more dishes. Once you have enough income then you can make your café look nice. Basic chairs and tables will cost you under 100 coins. Use the cash register and sell items from your inventory when you need extra cash or want to buy something new. Go for basic wall, floor, and other decorations to start to safe money. It can be a good idea to forget about extra decorations at least in the start when your cash is low.
