Cat Snack Bar is one of the most addictive idle tycoon-type games for iOS and Android devices. With cute kitties trying to run a bunch of different food venues just so that you can buy them even cuter outfits, what’s there not to like? It’s capitalism at its…most adorable?
Besides trapping you with delightful visuals and animations, Cat Snack Bar also features satisfying gameplay. It is simple at its core—your goal is to earn more and spend more to upgrade your restaurant and progress—, but the game will have you tapping on your screen for hours and coming back for more.
Still, the main question for games like this is how to earn in-game resources as soon as possible so that you can continue to upgrade your venue. If you want to go from a sandwich booth to a proper steakhouse in no time, stick with us as we show you how to get coins fast in Cat Snack Bar.

How to get coins fast in Cat Snack Bar
Gold coins are the most important in-game currency for progressing in Cat Snack Bar. You get them by default for selling different food items, and the rate at which you earn them depends on leveling up the dishes you’re offering and upgrades you’re purchasing.
As you go through different stages of leveling up your menu items, your revenue will double each time (for example, at levels 10, 25, and 50).
Still, if that’s not fast enough for you, there are ways to get more coins even more quickly.
Ads in mobile games are usually a reason for frustration, because they break up the gameplay and can be downright annoying. We feel differently when it comes to ads in Cat Snack Bar.
The game doesn’t push them in an obnoxious manner. Instead, you get to choose if and when you want to watch them. And you are motivated to do so by the hefty amounts of coins that watching a 30-second ad brings.
The best part is that the coin amount given by ads follows the earning stage you are at. So if you are already earning hundreds of thousands of coins by default, the ads usually entice you by going higher—for example, offering a few million coins for each viewing.
You can also use gems to buy and upgrade different merchandise items and boost how often you can watch ads. If you’ve done everything you can with the funds you earned, just watch an ad when the chance for it pops up in the lower right corner, and you will be able to continue upgrading your restaurant and menu soon enough.
Soon after you progress through the first few levels of the game, you will be able to use the Marketing option (just like you would in real life). If you notice a small megaphone icon in the upper right corner of your screen, tap it and select the dish you want to promote. When you do, you will see customers ordering almost exclusively that for the next 5 minutes.
Still, you have to be somewhat strategic with it. Select a dish that you’ve upgraded enough, so it can bring some serious cash, but also make sure that you have enough worktops to cover the surge in demand. If you only have one workstation for that food item, you risk most of your workers idling away while one kitty tries to make enough milkshakes for everyone.

Invest in table seating and collect tips
As soon as you get the chance to get some tables for your restaurant via the Upgrades system, go for it. Customers who are happy with the service and the food will leave tips on the tables, and that can be another great way to earn some extra cash. Make sure to invest some gems in the Tip Box in the Merchandise section and upgrade it regularly to boost how often your customers leave a gratuity.
Don’t worry if you have to leave the game—your tips will remain untouched, and the amount will increase as more customers go through your venue.
Buy and upgrade Outfits
You can get your first outfit pieces by completing different levels and unlocking suitcases, or you can also purchase those suitcases for some gems. You can equip three pieces at the same time, and each comes with a specific total revenue increase rate that stacks up, and that you can upgrade with more gems.
The prices in gems are not outrageously high, so consider leveling up your outfits whenever you have the chance to earn even more coins.
These tips should have you earning billions fast enough to become a real cat tycoon in the service industry! Still, if you have no patience and want it all at once, check out our other Cat Snack Bar guides for some extra help.
