Everything about Brewster’s Cafe in Animal Crossing: New Leaf

10 years ago 121 Comments


In the past two Animal Crossing games, Brewster owned a Cafe inside of the town Museum  This time around in New Leaf, the Cafe is a stand alone Community Project to be built when you progress through the game. Read on to learn all about it:

In order to build the Cafe a few requirements must be met:

  • Museum Store (second floor) built for about 7 days
  • 50+ fish/bugs/fossils/paintings donated to the Museum
  • 298,000 Bells

When these requirements have been met, you’ll be free to build the Cafe community project. Now you can head over to the Cafe and pay 200 Bells for a cup of coffee. After purchasing coffee 4 times you’ll have the option to take your coffee to go. This means you can walk around the down and take sips of your coffee in a cup.


One of the new additions to the Cafe in New Leaf is the ability to work a part-time job there after you’ve purchased coffee 8 times. You can work on pretty much any day between 11:00am to 11:00pm except for holidays.

During your shifts in the Cafe, a random selection of 4 Villagers (and other characters like K.K. Slider) will visit the Cafe and order Coffee. They will give you hints as to which type of coffee they like but they won’t be entirely specific so some guesses will be required. Eventually you’ll need to remember their order as they’ll begin to just ask for “the usual”. (list here)


Now of course you don’t want to work for nothing so good ol’ Brewster has some prizes for your hard work. Depending on how many orders you get correct in a shift, you’ll receive different quality coffee beans to sell for Bells.

  • Ordinary Coffee Beans – 500 Bells
  • Good Coffee Beans – 1,000 Bells
  • Very Good Coffee Beans – 2,000 Bells


Don’t worry though, there’s more than that! In addition to the Coffee Bean rewards, there are cumulative total of correct coffee order rewards. These are Cafe themed furniture items (and a uniform) which are a must if you plan on creating a Cafe room in your house.

Well, that just about details everything you ever wanted to know about the Cafe in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Discuss away in the comments below about the Cafe! Which reward do you want most?
