You can’t have a cat café without some good food! Cat Cafe Manager offers a plethora of fun recipes you can unlock by completing the Shrine projects and purchasing from Bonner’s Market. Before you go buying all your favorites, from Biscuits and Gravy to Blueberry Pie, you might want to pare things down to the basics.

Though some recipes are generic and have a wide appeal, other recipes appeal to very specific customer types. These are important to have on the menu for the utmost satisfaction of your customers. Here is every recipe that is an absolute must in Cat Cafe Manager.

10 Ham Sandwich Recipe

  • Ingredients: Bread, Ham
  • Requires: Fridge, Cutting Board, Cooking Skill 5

It might not scream ‘gourmet’ but a good ol’ ham sandwich is a necessity for your cat café menu. This recipe wins you extra points with Punks specifically, but because of its simplicity, it is often ordered by Vagabonds as well. If you ever want to get on Arwel’s good side, or expand the size of the café, consider upgrading to the Ham Sandwich recipe as soon as possible.


9 Italian Espresso Recipe

  • Ingredients: Coffee Beans
  • Requires: Coffee Machine, Cooking Skill 5

No one likes a fancy pants, but if you want to get anywhere in Cat Cafe Manager, you are going to need to pull some Businesspeople in. These are the customer type that gives you Gold, a currency necessary to buy both furniture items and pet goods. Adding Italian Espresso to your menu fits in so nicely as well, seeing as it only requires coffee beans that you likely already have on hand.

8 Pretzel Recipe

  • Ingredients: Bread
  • Requires: Sink, Cooking Skill 1

This recipe is the next step up from your basic glass of tap water, but it should remain a staple on your menu until the end of time. It only requires bread, and is a fan favorite amongst Vagabond customers. Vagabonds pay with Fabric as currency, which can be exchanged at Gruff Decorations for chairs, tables, and appliances. So, literally everything you need to run a cat cafe. Not to mention that this simple dish is also a hit with Fisherman.

7 Fish And Chips Recipe

  • Ingredients: Fresh Fish, Potatoes, Mayonnaise
  • Requires: Fridge, Cutting Board, Deep Fryer, Cooking Skill 8

Fish and Chips is a dish which is slightly difficult to incorporate into your menu. It requires that you not only start stocking Fresh Fish, Potatoes, and Mayo — three ingredients you hardly use for anything else — but buy a whole deep fryer. Regardless of the risk, buying this recipe is well worth it. Your Fisherman customers will not shut up about Fish and Chips otherwise. If you plan on catching more kitties or spoiling your current cafe cats, you will need this Fisherman’s favorite.

6 Simple Salad Recipe

  • Ingredients: Lettuce
  • Requires: Fridge, Sink, Cooking Skill 5

The Simple Salad is the Pretzel recipe for Witches. All it requires is Lettuce to make. Witches are quite literally the lifeblood of your cat café. You will have a very hard time running your shop for a single day without advertising to Witch customers, especially as your menu continues to grow. Invest in the Simple Salad recipe early, especially as it appeals to other customers such as Artists as well.

5 Avant Garden Salad Recipe

  • Ingredients: Lettuce, Tomatoes
  • Requires: Fridge, Sink, Cooking Skill 8

It might sound fancy, but the Avant Garden Salad is literally just a Simple Salad with tomatoes. That’s it. Of course, with the upgrade in name, it appeals more to Artist customer types. Artists give you Jewels, which you need to buy decorations for your cafe. That might not seem so important, but each customer has a specific decoration ‘need’. For instance, Artists like furniture that is ‘art’, ‘fun’, or ‘cool’. To increase your customer satisfaction score, save up on Jewels to get a nice array of decorations.

4 Complex Grape Juice Recipe

  • Ingredients: Bottled Grape Juice
  • Requires: Fridge, Cooking Skill 16

Complex Grape Juice has one of the most expensive ingredients, the highest cooking skill requirements, and is one of the last recipes you can unlock at the Shrine. That all being said, if you want to really rack up some Gold from Businesspeople customers, you need this recipe on your menu quickly. Every time you have to tell a Businessperson that you do not have their Complex Grape Juice on the menu, you are losing out on extra Gold.

3 Black Coffee Recipe

  • Ingredients: Coffee Beans
  • Requires: Coffee Machine, Cooking Skill 1

You cannot have a cat café without Black Coffee. To succeed in Cat Cafe Manager, plan on sticking to the basics. Black Coffee appeals strongly not only to Businesspeople customers, but also Artists. If you dream of ever purchasing a single piece of decor again, you best make sure you don’t run out of bean juice.

2 Herbal Tea Recipe

  • Ingredients: Herbs
  • Requires: Coffee Machine, Cooking Skill 1

If there is one thing Witches and Punks have in common, it’s loving Herbal Tea. Add this recipe to your menu as soon as possible, and always keep Herbs in stock. Focusing on appealing to Witches and Punks helps you to keep your ingredients fully stocked and your café constantly growing.

1 Black Tea Recipe

  • Ingredients: Tea Leaves
  • Requires: Coffee Machine, Cooking Skill 1

It might seem strange for the number one recipe in a cat café to be a plain Black Tea. Not only does Black Tea only require one ingredient, but it also appeals strongly to both Witches and Artists. It is also pretty well-favored by Fisherman customers as well. That is three incredibly important subgroups, all satisfied by one cup of hot leaf juice. It might be tempting to swap this recipe out for Harmony Tea, or some other fancier beverage once unlocked. Instead, keep that Black Tea flowing to continue reaping Nectar and Jewels.
