Bakery Restaurant Strategy Overview

The Bakery in Cooking Fever allows you to bake cakes with a variety of frostings and fruit toppings.  It will require both Interior and Kitchen upgrades in order to get 3 stars on each level.  Upgrades can be expensive, so use the guide below to help determine the best items to upgrade and when to upgrade.  If you took our advice from the Fast Food restaurant, you save up enough coins before coming to this restaurant so that you could upgrade all non-gem Kitchen and Interior items to Level 1 before starting Level 1 of the restaurant.

Level Guide

Use this level guide to help develop your playing strategy. 

Number of Guests - This number can be an indicator of how much people will order and what they may be ordering.  After Level 15, a low number of guests might mean that they will be ordering multiple menu items or it could be an indicator that there won't be enough earnings to get 3 stars unless you hand out treats or increase the price of the popular items.  A high number of guests might be an indicator that many guests will be just ordering beverages or an add-on item instead of the main dishes.

First Orders - These are the first food items that customers will be ordering when the Level starts.  There is a slight delay before the first customer shows up, so use this information to prepare their orders in advance and get a jump start on the level.

Popular Foods - These are menu items that are ordered often during the level.  Prepare these items in advance and store them on your Tabletop or on warmers so that they are ready to hand out as soon as they are ordered.  Upgrading these items before starting the level can also increase your level earnings.

Noteworthy - This is extra information that might be helpful during the level.
