Restaurant City drinks has just been released and many people have difficulties dealing with restaurant city drink, so i’ll give some basics information and some tips and tricks for restaurant city drinks :

What is a drink ?
Basically, it’s another category of dish that you serve. Drinks can be served after level 15. You can choose up to 3 drinks to serve.

How do I serve drinks ?
You have to buy yourself a soda dispenser (1200 coins) and/or a fridge (2400 coins).

Which serves faster, dispenser of fridge ?
They are of the same speed, 12-13 seconds.

How do I level up drinks ?
Just like other menus, you collect ingredients (you can check restaurant city ingredients list).

Who prepares drinks ?
Your waiters.

What’s the best staff allocation for island layouts with 8 staff ?
2 islands: 2 chef, 2 waiters.
1 island: 3 chef, 4 waiters, 1 cleaner.

I served a drink. Now what ?
You can wait for a waiter to clean it up and you get your GP (Gourmet Point) – just like a normal dish!

How long does it take for a waiter to prepare a drink with energy over 80% ?
Around 12-13 seconds while stoves need 16.

What is the restaurant city drinks best layout ?
The best is to REMOVE YOUR ISLANDS, or make a large island, so that waiters serve all tables at all times.
Also, if you are not using an island, I advise you to have more waiters than chefs.

What kind of drinks can you make ?
Here’s the list of drinks menu with a picture and drinks ingredients :
glass of water
espresso
coffee
tea
chocolate milkshake
strawberry milkshake
lemonade
peach iced tea
bubble tea
fruit smoothie

For the start you can try to make the milkshakes or even Bubble Tea :D

Thanks CopyCatty for this restaurant city drinks tips

Restaurant City Drinks Island Layout

Some diagrams by Mushroom King and Amy :D

For people who are confused on the 2 islands, Here’s how Mushroom King set 1 of his islands up :
o
0= Cook
x= waiter
– = Tables/Chairs
D = Drink stand/w.e.
| = Wall

| o
| 0 – – –
| x x D
| 0 – – –
| o

Amy think this is a more effective way to set up the islands since it serves 9 people at a time :
|=wall
oO=cook
w=where the waiters can go
D=drinks
T=table
x=empty space

New Drinks Layout by Lisa :)
It’s keeping me close to 50 popularity when i’m over 80% energy:
(8 staff)
oO=cook
W=where the waiters can go
D=drinks
T=table
X=empty space
C=chair

I have a big enough restaurant that there is enough space for customers to walk around and get to all the chairs

Restaurant City Drinks Dispenser Table Layout by Dukie
The problem you might encounter is a constant drop in popularity, but no worries, I have come up with a new arrangement that would maximized your profits/gourmet points earning, also constantly increase your PP even with all your staff at less than 80% PP, YAY for not having to check in every half an hour lol (at around 55% of staff health PP will start decrease slowly again)

If you’re level 17 or higher, instead of the classy 2 island setups which gonna decrease your PP slowly and slightly, I use a 3 island setup (since a fridge is an extra stove, so your waiter would be busy enough with 2 stoves + 1 fridge)
A chef now can serve 3.5 to 4 tables, so we will have
– Two islands, each with 2 stoves, 1 fridge, and 7 tables, with 2 walking squares for 1 waiter.
– The third island will have 1 stove, 1 fridge and 4 tables surrounding the waiter.

At level 15 and 16, simply ignore the third island, use your extra staff as a cleaner

With 8 staffs, u will have
– 5 stoves + 3 fridges
– 18 tables
– 3 waiters
– Maximum productivity compared to other setups with 4stoves + 3 fridges (or less) and waiters have to walk a lot more

    i got to 50 popularity with 5 chefs, 2 soda dispensers, 3 waiters, 17 tables& chairs all in one island.

    i should also mention that i have 6 waiting chairs and 4 arcades.

  • BOBO

    what do the arcade machines do?

    • admin

      It keeps them occupied and entertained for the wait before any seats/tables are available. If you’re getting a big rush of customers, put a machine or two into your ‘lounge’ area.

  • Doris

    Okay, I used the 3-island and jumped to 50 pp (continued for a week), but today I got on Restaurant City using the same layout, and my popularity dropped to a 4…..WTF happened :[

  • Lisa

    Here’s my layout, it’s keeping me close to 50 popularity when i’m over 80% energy:
    (8 staff)
    oO=cook

    Hello! I came across this and thought, “I should give this website my island layout for drinks!”. This is for people on level 15 – 16 mostly. With this, I use all 7 of my employees. Here it is, good luck!

    CODEX:
    E = Entrance
    W = Waiter
    SS = Stove (Full Length)
    D = Drink Machine
    T = Table
    C = Chair
    | = Wall
    = Empty Space

    I am doing this on-scale, so that’s why the stove takes 2 spaces instead of one. This restaurant has 11×12 spaces, or 132 spaces. They are all plotted out.

    | D TC CTSTC |
    |SSWTC S |
    | TTT |
    | CCC |
    | |
    |_____E______|

    This is my layout using every one of my employees!
    It’s very easy to maneuver if you put the entrance there, and then you still have lots of room to decorate! Thanks, I hope I helped you!

      thanks for sharing kootonii :)

  • Kootonii

    Oh my gosh the spaces didn’t turn out to be spaces!! Here’s an updated version, admin could you please delete my previous post?

    CODEX:
    E = Entrance
    W = Waiter
    SS = Stove (Full Length)
    D = Drink Machine
    T = Table
    C = Chair
    | = Wall
    – = Empty Space

    There, I hope that this is easier to understand. (Sincerest apologies, I was dumb to think that all of the spaces would show up in the post)

    Ok, I give up. This is not working out for me.

    could you send a picture link of your restaurant :) so it’ll be easier

    4 Cooks, 5 waiters.

    cC – Cook
    D – Drinks
    T – Table
    – Empty Space

    What’s the highest popularity rate possible?

    • admin

      50.0 :)

  • Sushifingrz

    I came up with a gret setup that runs quite smoothly and maintains an average of 50.0 popularity with 5 stoves, 2 drink fridges and 8 staff but it requires manual cleaning/ repairing of your toilets/arcade machines (you have to click them). Takes up 7X12 spaces.

    Key:
    |=wall
    oO=cook
    w=where the waiters can go
    D=drinks
    T=table
    c+chair
    x=empty space

    I advise that you situate two waiters on the second half of the island (farthest from the wall) because there are more tables to serve/clear and also there is an additional stove on the end of the island to further accomodate customers.

    The downside is your waiters will be forced to move 4 steps in order to access drinks, stoves and customers. Your other option is to give the first half of the island (against the wall) 10 chairs and the second half 8, in which case I advise you instead situate two waiters on the first half of the island in accordance with the prophecy. .::lol::. I just added that to throw you off a bit. Did it work?

    Anyway, just thought I’d throw it out there. If you can find a way to improve on my layout, by all means share it! We’re all looking for ways to improve the functionality of our restaurants.

  • Sushifingrz

    The 2 island layout I was using before with full staff is also quite effective and also (in my experience) maintains a popularity of 50.0 using 6 stoves, 2 drink fridges and 20 tables & chairs. It takes up 13X8 spaces.

    Key:
    |=wall
    oO=cook
    w=where the waiters can go
    D=drinks
    T=table
    c=chair
    x+empty space

    You can also try switching the drink fridges with the stoves furthest from the wall.

    This is my current layout, maintains 49.5-50.0 as long as my workers are 80%+ health, not sure if its efficient but I like how its a bit different.

    T=Table
    D=Drinks
    cC=Cook
    W=Where waiters can go
