Cafe World Guide

By | October 5, 2009

Cafe World Guide. Cafe World by Zynga is still fresh new πŸ™‚ i think many people will play this facebook game, because this game is like Restaurant City. And i know that many Restaurant City fan out there πŸ˜€

So if you want to know how to play Cafe World all you need to do is read this Cafe World guide and some Cafe World Tips πŸ™‚

First Time you open your Cafe World you will see this

Now choose your gender, then you can start to open cafe πŸ˜€
Choose it carefully because i don’t think you can change gender like change gander in country story game πŸ˜›

Next there will be a guide that will teach you how to play Cafe World

Cafe World How to prepare food / dishes
First you need an empty stove, and then click the stove to prepare a food.
CookBook will appear, now you need to choose your dish from the menu. ( i have the explanations for the icons and the words for the dishes, you can see it down)

Each dishes will have a different steps, take a look a sample of Bacon Cheeseburger
– (Gathering)
– Slice Tomatoes (Slicing)
– Dice Bacon (Dicing)
– Shape Patties (Shaping)
– Grilling Beef Patties
But all you need to do is click click and click πŸ˜€ easy right ?

Now you just wait for the dish until it got ready. Moving your mouse/cursor over a fully prepped dish will display the current cook progress.
This is shown as a green progress bar, with a percentage to completion on the left side of the bar.

After it’s ready just click the dish and it will moved from stove on to counters.

now every customer that come in your cafe will be served with that dish until it reach 0 πŸ™‚

Remember to clean the stove after you served the food, so you can prepare for the next food πŸ™‚
Cleaning = 15 coins

Deleting Dishes
If you run out of counter space to serve a new dish you have the option of deleting an in-progress dish from the stove or deleting a dish from a counter.

You can delete dishes by clicking on an in progress dish on your stove or counter and selecting Yes from the Delete Dish confirmation pop-up. Careful! Once a dish is deleted it cannot be returned.

Spoiled Dishes
Care should be taken not to leave fully cooked dishes on the stove for too long!
Dishes will start to spoil if they sit around. Spoiled dishes are useless and must be thrown out before you can begin a new dish.

How long it takes time for Dishes to Spoiled ?
The food will spoils x2 to the time that can be served (save time).
For example, the Bacon Cheeseburger can be served after 5 minutes, it will spoil after 5 minutes. Another example, Spitfire Roasted Chicken, can be served after 1 day, it will spoil after 1 day.

Someone calculated : Spoil time = Ready time + (Ready time / 5)
Burger ready in 5 mins
Spoil in 6 mins
Total time 11mins

Here’s the table :

Dish Explanation
Sell For = Total Amount when you sell all your dishes.
Serves = Amount of dishes.
Dish Price = Sell For / Serves.
Profit = Sell For – Cost – Clean Cost (15).

For example:
Bacon Cheese Burger
Sell For = 52
Serves = 13
Dish Price = 52 / 13 = 4.
Profit = 52 -15 -15 = 22

Super Chunk Fruit Salad
Sell For = 100
Serves = 100
Dish Price = 1
Profit = 50

Notice that even though Fruit Salad has more profit, the dish price is at sad $1 per dish. If you want to make money out of it, it will take longer or requires high buzz (aka more customers).

    Hey, I have over 500 pieces of flooring that I am not useing!! Is there away to sell all of these at once instead of dragging each one to the cashregister? Thanks!!

  • Tiffani

    i was wondering if i could gift my stuff in my cafe to my other account???

  • Crystal

    I really need help. I cannot load more friends than the 2 I already have hired. I am lvl 14 now and have been unable to hire my 3rd person. It is seriously ruining it for because I cannot really expand if i cannot hire anymore than 2 people. is there a fix for this or do I simply have to make a new account and hope the bug doesn’t follow me? Have 11 neighbours and 13 friends and only 2 wait staff. Fiends list does not load and NO typing in the name does nothing either.
    Help… =[

  • Lori

    I am on level 17. I’m anxious to get a bigger cafe. I’ve got enough employees and have learned how to efficient put out the food. But I can’t add anymore tables. I thought when you go up a level, you get one (1) CW dollar. I’ve been on 4 CW dollars forever and I’m already on level 17. What other way do you get CW $ beside leveling up because it’s not happening for me?

  • Wes

    My picture has gone missing, too. I notice that this issue has existed since last October.

    Any idea which year this will be fixed?

  • Kate

    Does anyone know of a fix for the adding waiter problem “friend list loading” but after hours of waiting, no list appears? Have latest software updates, logged off & on, tried various browsers & computers all to no avail….anyone know?

    How do you keep the chef behind the counter? I find that she is out with the waiters. I tried trapping her, but it didn’t work. Any suggestions?

  • Paige

    “Is there any way to clear a counter when my food is β€œstuck” there. I’ve had one serving of hamburger left on a counter for about a week now and no one will eat it.”

    “Sorry..I should add that clicking on the counter with the hamburger does nothing…I can’t delete the hamburger”

    I’m having the same issue. I can’t delete the stove because it says I still have one serving left.

  • Amanda

    Hi guys,

    I removed a couple friends to see if it would make my coffee maker appear. I can’t figure out how to add them back. Obviously, I’m feeling pretty stupid at this point. Won’t be trying that again.

    Help!!! – Can you adjust display setting on Cafe World for facebook? Not sure where to post this. Hope it’s ok here. I enjoy the game very much, and was playing for about 3 weeks, then all of a sudden I am unable to see the right hand side or bottom of the screen. I am unable to see my goals, the prices of purchases at the bottom, view icon to complete eat missions when visiting neighbors, see the done icon when in purchase mode and now can’t see the arrow to move through the different recipes. This problem has only happened with this game, does anyone have any advice????

    • admin

      hi anna, i’m afraid you can’t see the ALL the right hand side quest >.<
      i already suggest where we can roll the goals to zynga, but no response till now

      have u tried the full screen options ? so you can see all options more clearly πŸ™‚
      if there’s still a problem with the views i suggest you to clear your browser cache, coz it’s usually works


  • cynthia moore

    lost coffee pot in cafe world.

  • Dani

    Okay so lately I’ve been noticing a lot of my food is spoiling the minute it’s ready, particularly the meals that take a long time to cook like the chicken and the turkey and the vampire steak etc. It will be in the process of cooking one moment and then if I come back to check when it should be finished it’ll be rotten. I don’t seem to be having the same problem with the meals that take less time to cook for some reason. What’s going on?

  • kathy

    how do i remove cafe world friends that dont play anymore? i tried removing them off the neibors list but they are still showing up on my catering order page

  • Barbara

    I can’t spice my own dishes. When I try to – the only option that comes up is is to throw away the food. Since spicing my own dish enables me to join the cooking academy – this will seriously hamper my playing the game. How can I fix this?
