Cafe World Dinner at the Shelter Catering Order: Everything you need to know

A new catering order has launched in Cafe World, that asks you to take care of those (virtual) citizens that are a bit less fortunate. You'll be heading down to the shelter to cook up a warm, wholesome meal. As you're feeding a pretty large group of people (in theory), the cooking tasks in this particular order are pretty steep. Here's a look at this newest catering order, so you'll know exactly what to expect going in.

You'll need to serve French Onion Soup (a four-hour dish) a whopping 400 times, Basil Finger Sandwiches (a six-hour dish) 125 times, Mini Crab Cakes (a nine-hour dish) 75 times and Summer Jambalaya (a six-hour dish) just three times. This Summer Jambalaya is earned by completing the Slow Cooker Goals, so you can either go back and finish those in order to unlock this one, or just ask a friend to cook those three servings for you - it's not that much, after all.

While none of these dishes come with a particularly long cooking time, the French Onion Soup might pose a problem simply due to the bulk amount you need to cook. Remember to bust out some spices, or to check your gift box for any extra servings before you panic. Hopefully, those two methods alone will help you squash the biggest portion of that 400 total. If not, you can bring up to 14 of your friends in on this order with you; with their help, and a five day time limit, you will hopefully be able to complete this entire order in time.

Rounding out the requirements are two collectibles. You'll need to collect 15 Ladles and 15 Blankets, with each item being earned by asking your friends to send them to you.

If you can manage to complete the entire order within five days, you'll receive the top rating of three-stars, 15 Catering Points, 7,500 Cafe Points, 200,000 coins and the Sausage and Lentil Stew recipe. Remember, you must finish with three stars to receive this new recipe, so feel free to cancel the order and start over if you haven't finished it by the five day mark. As for finishing withing 5-7 days, you'll receive the two-star rating, 10 Catering Points, 5,000 Cafe Points and 125,000 coins, while finally, finishing at any point after the first week will give you a single star, 5 Catering Points, 3,000 Cafe Points and 75,000 coins.

If this order only have a three day time limit, I might be more concerned about our ability to finish it in time, but with two complete extra days, and enough hard work and dedication, I'm pretty sure we'll be able to finish it in time. Good luck!
