Cat Snack Bar for beginners

The game starts in a very straightforward manner: as soon as you install it on your phone and open the app, you’re ready to go. While some players may appreciate this cut-to-the-chase moment, some may feel like they need a better tutorial to explain the basics.

The goal of Cat Snack Bar is to serve customers, prepare some delicious meals, earn enough money to upgrade your current food venue to the maximum, and progress to new, more challenging levels. You start with a simple sandwich booth in your cat neighborhood, but soon enough, you will move onto a donut stand, food truck, cafeteria, or taco place.

How upgrades work in Cat Snack Bar

You need to fully upgrade your venue by bringing all food stations to a certain level, which is done by improving different food items that your kitties serve to their hungry customers. There are a bunch of different upgrades that will help you speed up the process—some of them allow you to hire other kitties as part-time employees, while others increase the speed of making food or double and triple the prices, so you can earn resources faster.

Cat Snack Bar is all about spending money to earn money, and every upgrade or level-up costs an increasing amount of coins, but the speed at which everything progresses is quite manageable at the beginning. And the most important part is that Cat Snack Bar is an AFK game, which means that you can leave your cats to work while you go about your day and come back later on for some offline revenue—but no more than 3 hours worth of it.

Resources in Cat Snack Bar

The basic gameplay in Cat Snack Bar requires you to spend gold coins. While you start with the prices and income worth just a few coins, things move fast, and soon you will be working with huge numbers. That is why the game operates with a unique system where letters represent the powers of 10: 1a means 1,000, 1b means 10,000, 1c means 100,000, and so on.

Besides gold coins, you can also use diamonds, which are earned much more rarely. You are supposed to spend diamonds to purchase different boosters, merchandise, and upgrades for your outfit items that bring various perks. For example, some merchandise pieces, like a tip jar, give you a 12% chance to get tips from satisfied customers, and those odds can be improved by spending diamonds on upgrading the tip jar.

Cat Snack Bar outfits

As you move through the opening chapters of the game, you will unlock three types of Suitcases containing different clothing items that your cat manager can wear. They all come with different passive perks that can be upgraded further. You can get suitcases by completing different levels or purchase them with diamonds.

Different outfits can have effects like increasing your earning rate, making the tips better, or improving production speed.

Cat Snack Bar tips and tricks for beginners

Being a small cat and running a big business is tough, so you may need every piece of advice that you can get. We have compiled several that will be the most useful as you start the game.

Watch ads for better income

Yes, we know that nobody likes ads in mobile games. Still, in Cat Snack Bar, you get to choose if and when you want to watch them, and you receive some coins for free when you do. It’s not like your cat employees can’t work and keep earning while you spend 30 seconds on an ad that gives you an earning rate boost. This can be particularly helpful at first, while your earning rates are low.

Balance between investing in food levels and buying upgrades

The ultimate goal of each Cat Snack Bar chapter is to fill up the bar at the bottom of the screen by upgrading all worktops and related food items to the maximum level. You might be torn between spending every coin you earn on doing just that or purchasing upgrades that will increase the price of food or decrease the time it takes to making them.

We suggest alternating between doing both, as spending all your money exclusively on food level-ups will have you wait a long time later, when the prices go crazy. Who knew that inflation is so ruthless in the cat world, too.

Make sure to collect your tips

As you progress to more complicated food venues, your happy customers will leave you tips, which is a great source of passive income. The good thing is that the tips pile up, so if you’re not in the game for some time, don’t worry because your cash will be waiting for you to come back. And some of these cats are great tippers, too!
