Giving out drinks and other food items to friends in Cafe World on Facebook is fun but with little in-game benefit, gifting was more of a friendly gesture and not a level-raising partnership. Finally the gaming gearheads at Zynga did something about it. Go into your cafe and you can now see your gifts in the lower righthand corner of the screen. Clicking on the Gift icon, players now get to select which gifts they'd like to use in game.
There's a clear and visual benefit as well. Once you use a gift like sugar cookies, each patron will give you more coins. So bigger cafes with a 105 Buzz Rating are now even bigger money makers. Here's a look at what happens when you use a gift.
