The Roost Café

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, the café, known as The Roost, is a public works project. There, you can drink coffee, encounter villagers and special characters, and even get a part time job.

Building the Roost

The Roost is a public works project, but it isn't available in your list of public works projects right away. After you have built the museum gift shop and have donated at least 50 items to the museum, one day Blathers will ask that you build the café. After that, The Roost becomes available as an option in the public works list. Just sit in your mayor chair and choose it from the list of public works projects, then go outside with Isabelle to choose where to build it.

Drinking Coffee

You can drink coffee at The Roost. Just sit in the stool in front of Brewster and order your coffee. You can only drink coffee once per day. At first he will serve plain coffee, but the more times you order coffee, the more options Brewster will give you, such as adding milk and sugar or choosing the coffee beans.

Encountering Special Characters

At certain times of day, you will find a special character sitting on a stool at the bar. The following list shows the schedule.

Part Time Job

After you have had seven cups of coffee from The Roost, you can get a part time job by talking to Brewster while standing at the right side of the bar. The part time job is a mini-game where you must serve coffee to villagers and special characters. Typically, three villagers (not always from your town) will ask for coffee, Each animal has a preferred combination of coffee beans, milk, and sugar. If you make the customers happy, Brewster will reward you with coffee beans to take home, as well as rare furniture items. If you do well over time, your rewards get better and better until you get a rare set of Brewster gyroids. Here is a list of the rewards in the order that Brewster will give them to you.

Villager Coffee List

The following table lists the coffee preferences of all animal villagers. Note: For villagers (but not special characters), the amount of milk always matches the amount of sugar. In other words, if the milk is 'none', the sugar will also be 'none'. If the milk is 'the regular amount', the sugar will be 'Two spoonfuls'. And so on. However, the coffee beans don't necessarily match these amounts.
