Ready to run your own coffee shop empire and become a cafe tycoon? If you're a fan of idle games (and restaurant games), this one is for you!

Turn your cafe around from humble beginnings to global coffee franchise! Add more tables, hire better staff and buy extra facilities as you see your profits multiply!

• Customise your Cafe:

Become an interior designer and change the appearance of your cafe walls, floor and tables which unlock as the game progresses. Name your cafe! The possibilities are endless so release your creativity and make sure those ""too cool for school"" influencers want to be seen in YOUR Cafe!

• Become a five star business:

How do I improve my cafe? Get in the lab to research tasty new food and drinks! Start off with basic cheese burgers and over time upgrade to serve delicious foods from around the world! That's not all! Every new item on the menu increases your cafe rating which unlocks special perks such as earnings or cooking speed boosts! Can you collect a five star menu?

• Upgrade staff:

Any business tycoon knows that more customers means more work! Do you have enough waiters or do you have staff standing idle? Are your chefs skilled enough? Can the manager count the money fast enough? Make sure you employ the right staff to keep your cafe running efficiently and keep the tips coming in!

• Keep customers happy:

Have you ever seen an angry customer? If you have then you must know it is best to keep them happy! Make sure you meet their requests to obtain awesome rewards!
Remember: happy customers = good restaurant reviews!

• Daily prizes:

Who doesn't like a reward? We certainly do! You can also get yours by achieving certain milestones: cooking certain number of dishes, having a number of customers in your cafe or performing certain upgrades. Some of these goals refresh daily. Come back often to check your progress!

• Exciting expansions!

It won't be long until you need to expand your cafe to make room for more customers! It's a land grab! Make it rain!

• Expand your cafe empire around the world:

Are you ready to take your cafe franchise to the next level and become a successful tycoon? Why stick to a single country when you can go global? Open cafes in other countries and see your empire (and your cash flow) grow!

Great game

Lovely little idle game you can watch the adds or not would give it 5 stars if not so short, it is in desperate need of an update with either a new area or another extension with more food drink decoration upgrades to do as I finished it all within a week of installing.

I like the idea..

This game has a really good concept. I like the detail which has gone into it. Unfortunately it’s full of bugs and is constantly crashing. I come back to collect my offline earnings, and they don’t even go into my money. Same with completing missions/checklist; no money added. The ads do not work for me, so I am moving at a snail pace in the game. It’s beginning to get boring as I’m unable to do anything/buy anything within a reasonable amount of time.
Also when I close the app down, the music still plays in my background for 30 seconds. I think it’s slowed my phone down overall. Not impressed.
Hopefully the game developers can fix some errors soon and make it more enjoyable. I think when it’s able to go smoothly, it’ll be a great game. But for now, there’s a lot of work to be done…

25 th July......Since update I can't move on from the icon hand pointing to upgrade table. I was already fully upgraded now the game unplayable bring stuck on opening screen even when rebooting.
Devs please fix your update.

5th August.....Update......2 weeks I waited for this new update.
I have lost all my fully graded cafes. Lost my purchases.
Restore purchases didn't work. No game support.
Am I supposed to restart from the beginning having lost everything.

Players.....Avoid games that have no save features or transfer device. Moreso don't encourage these games with cash until Devs play fair with loyal players.

8th August......Still all of the above remain same.
Obviously with no game support or any means to ask for help it's just a piece wood floating in the ocean.

Devs.....when are you going to support players who made purchases and lost all their progress?

12th August.....STILL IGNORED.
How am I expected like other players who made previous purchases to restart from beginning minus our purchases?
Shame on you!
