Cafe World Getting Started Ultimate Strategy Guide For Playing Cafe World

Customize your Cafe World character – In the beginning of Cafe World, a screen may pop-up to let you adjust the appearance of your Cafe World avatar. Here you can change the entire look of your character by selecting things like different styles of clothing, hair color, and facial characteristics. You can spend a lot of time on this or just go with the default look for your character. Many people playing Cafe World like to make their character appear exactly like themselves but others are much more creative customizing their Cafe World character. There are no rules to this so feel free to experiment with it and have some fun.

Making your Cafe World character move – Moving your character in Cafe World is somewhat restrictive. That is, your character can only move to complete tasks such as cleaning dishes, cooking, preparing food, and clearing tables. You can do this by clicking on the target for each task (i.e. oven, table, etc.)

Customizing your Cafe – At the start of the game, you get a very generic looking cafe but as you proceed to earn more money and reach new Cafe World levels you get the opportunity to buy more stuff. You can then add things like new ovens, chairs, tables, windows, floors, walls, counters, and decor to decorate your space to give it a custom makeover or expand it and make even more money.


How To Play Cafe World

Cafe World How To Play Ultimate Strategy Guide For Playing Cafe World

Cooking in Cafe World – At the beginning of Cafe World your first concern should be to buy some food to prepare. To do this, click on the oven and a menu will pop-up to let you select the type of food you want to cook. Once, you’ve done that you’ll need to prepare the food by continuing to click on the stove.

Choosing food in Cafe World – There are various menu items to select from with each costing you a different amount of money to make. Generally speaking the more a dish costs to make, the greater your profits. However, you also have to consider the time it takes to make that particular dish as well. Some items take much longer to make (i.e. days versus minutes) and can spoil if your don’t serve them when they’re ready.

Cafe points help you level-up – Cafe points are given to you for doing such things as cooking, cleaning, buying items, and helping your Cafe friends. As you acquire more Cafe points you’ll reach new game levels in Cafe World.

Buzz rating – In the upper right hand corner of the Cafe World screen you’ll see a thumbs-up image and a numerical value. That number represents your buzz rating. The buzz rating determines how many customers come to your Cafe. If the value increases, more people come to visit you and you’ll earn more money. If it goes down, so does your customer traffic and potential earnings.

Why neighbors are important – If you click on the “My Neighbors” link at the top of the page you’ll be able to see all your Cafe World neighbors. There you can invite and accept new neighbors to your Cafe. Neighbors are important because they limit what you can do in the game. That is, you need neighbors to work for you as waiters and waitresses at your Cafe. You can also earn more Cafe coins by increasing the number of neighbors you have. Hence, it’s important to continue to invite more Facebook friends to increase the size of your Cafe World neighbors and thus make more money.

Gifting to neighbors – Giving and receiving gifts in Cafe World is beneficial for all parties involved. That is, giving gifts to your Cafe World neighbors often encourages reciprocal gifting. The gifts you receive maybe something you and and many times they are something you can’t afford or obtain yet because of your skill level.

Helping your neighbors – Helping your Cafe World neighbors from time to time encourages them to reciprocate that act too. You can do this by visiting their cafes, trying their daily special, and leaving tips. Doing so increases your Cafe World experience points and your daily bonus.

Cafe World Game Strategies Ultimate Strategy Guide For Playing Cafe World

Cafe World icon Ultimate Strategy Guide For Playing Cafe WorldSelect menu items with big profits – When you’re deciding on what food dish to prepare, consider the cost of the dish, the cooking time, how many it serves, and how much profit you can generate from the dish. You can easily compare the profitability of food dishes by subtracting the cost of the dish from the Cafe coins you make (profit) and dividing that number by the cost of the dish. This value is also known as the ROI (return on investment). The larger your ROI, the more profitable it is to make such a food dish. For instance, the spitfire roasted chicken dish takes an entire day to cook, serves 800 people, costs you 600 Cafe coins, and earns you 3200 in sales. So our ROI for the chicken dish is (3200-600)/600 = 4.33 or 433%. In comparison, you can prepare the bacon cheeseburger dish in 5 minutes for 13 people at a cost of 15 Cafe coins and sell it for 52 Cafe coins. In this case our cheeseburger dish produces an ROI of (52-15)/15 = 2.46 or 246%.

As you can see from the example above the chicken dish had a greater ROI but there are other factors to consider such as the time until the dish is completed. Of course that not the only factor to consider when choosing which food dishes to prepare. One important factor you may want to take into account is the time it takes to cook the food. In the examples cited above the chicken took an entire day to complete whereas the bacon cheeseburger only took 5 minutes. You can normalize for this factor by dividing the ROI by the total minutes it takes to cook the dish. Likewise you can divide the total profits by the time to completion in minutes to see how much money you can earn on a per minute basis.

Cafe World Items Comparison Chart

Cafe World icon Ultimate Strategy Guide For Playing Cafe WorldPlan food around your schedule – As you may know menu items differ in their time to completion when cooking them. Thus you’ll want to select food items to cook based on how much time you have available to play Cafe World any given day. If you have lots of time to play during the day, you can choose items off the menu that take a short time cook. In contrast, if you have very little time to play during the day, you can begin cooking food dishes that aren’t completely done until you’re available to play again.

Cafe World icon Ultimate Strategy Guide For Playing Cafe WorldBeware of spoiled food – When choosing your food items and planning the cooking around your schedule make sure you don’t forget about them or they will spoil. If your food spoils, you can’t serve it to customers and you lose any potential profits. Moreover, your buzz rating will likely fall given that you don’t have any food to serve and flies will be swarming inside your cafe.

Cafe World icon Ultimate Strategy Guide For Playing Cafe WorldExpand your Cafe – Adding extra building space can greatly increase your profits. You can use the extra space to add more tables and seat more paying customers. There are several expansion packages including the Corner Cafe, Family Cafe, Bountiful Cafe, Extravagant Cafe, Lavish Cafe, and Astounding Cafe. Each package is price differently according to the size of expansion.
