- Delicious – Emily’s Christmas Carol Walkthrough
Whether you’re just getting started or need a little nudge in the right direction, this section is dedicated to introducing you to the game, as well as a few extra tips and tricks!
How to Play
Upon starting the game, click “Play” to get started! You will be taken to the level select screen. Click and hold to navigate between level screens, or use the directional arrows in the lower left and right corners to navigate.
Delicious – Emily’s Christmas Carol is a time management game. The goal is to serve all customers that enter the restaurant before the day ends. The happier the customer, the higher the score!
In order to serve a customer, select the products the customer orders. These products will be placed on the tray in the lower left corner of your screen. Take the products to the customers in a timely manner, then check them out at the cash register to receive a score. If a customer was sitting at a table, a “!” bubble will appear indicating the table needs to be cleaned. Click on the table to clean it so a new set of customers can come in and sit down.
Scoring and Hearts
Happy customers mean high scores! Customers will have between 1 and 5 hearts while inside the restaurant. 1 heart means a customer is extremely unhappy, while 5 hearts mean a customer is positively ecstatic. Bringing correct orders and serving customers quickly will cause their hearts to increase. If a customer loses all their hearts, they will leave the restaurant without paying.
Earn additional score bonuses by upgrading your menu or purchasing items in the shop. Locating each level’s hidden mouse and completing a level’s bonus challenge will also increase your score. Shoot for the stars and try to get 3 stars for levels, and 1 star for challenges!
There’s a mouse hidden in each of the story levels (Levels 1 – 61). Listen for squeaks and keep an eye out for little grey mice wearing festive red Santa hats. Locating a mouse will not only increase your score, but count toward the special trophy “Eleven Mice Gathering”. Mice are not hidden in challenge levels, and challenge levels containing mice will not count toward your achievement progress. To view a complete list of mice in the game and how to find them, visit the Mouse Locations section of our walkthrough. You can also click on “Mouse Location” under each level to be taken straight to a screenshot of the mouse’s location!
With each level you complete, you will earn coins which can be used to purchase restaurant upgrades. You can unlock two different types of upgrades: Shop and Menu.
- Shop – The Shop will automatically be opened any time you select Levels 1 – 60. Here you can purchase upgrades to increase customer patience, tips, service speed, and even a few secret items! As soon as you’ve unlocked all upgrades for a chapter/restaurant, the Shop screen will automatically be skipped when selecting a level.
- Menu – After clicking “Play” in the lower left corner of the Shop screen, you will be taken to a screen that allows you to customize your menu. Click on a product to customize your menu. You can also view any locked products and how to unlock them.
Additional Tips and Tricks
- The Diamond Standard! Complete level challenges to earn Diamonds. Use these Diamonds to send invitations and invite people to Paige’s school play! You can send invitations and view the number of Diamonds you’ve earned by clicking on the Diamond icon in the upper right corner of the Map screen.
- Stack your tasks! Don’t be afraid to click on multiple products and stack Emily’s tasks when playing. Doing this is a great way to continue to move quickly and serve customers in a timely manner.
- Always restock! The very beginning of the day is always a great time to restock. Items with numbers next to them indicate they’re available in limited quantity. Be sure to keep these items stocked throughout the day, otherwise you may end up falling behind.
- The cash register is your checkpoint! You don’t have to wait by a table while a customer is eating or ordering. Instead, click on the cash register to navigate the restaurant faster.
- Check out multiple customers at once! Serve and check out multiple customers back-to-back for extra bonuses to increase your score.
- Serve full orders! Unless otherwise noted, try to always serve customers their entire order at once. You will receive a score bonus every time you do this.
- Keep the tables clean! A “!” bubble will appear over a table when it needs to be cleaned. Click on the table to clear it so more customers can come in and eat.
- Who doesn’t love an entertainer? Entertainers are a great way to keep table customers extra happy while waiting on their orders. Entertainers can be purchased in the Shop at the start of each level.
- Customize that menu! As you play, you’ll unlock new and exciting products to use. Customize your menu to improve customer tips, product quantity, restocking rate – you can even unlock upgrades that will prevent items from burning or spilling!

The snow is freshly fallen and the holidays are in full swing. Relatives are arriving, and Paige eagerly awaits the arrival of Santa and the school Christmas play.
Diamond Goal: Keep every customer happy (or better)!
Mouse Location: In the middle of the snowy clearing, to the left of the snowman.
Today’s your first day, so let’s familiarize you with the basics. When a customer orders an item, click on the item to add it to your tray, then click on the customer to hand it over to them. Once you’ve given the customer all the items they’ve requested, click on the register to check them out. If customers are sitting at a table, you’ll have to wait for one of them to move to the counter before you can check them out. If a customer orders a cake, it will require extra assembly. Click on 1) the green napkin, followed by 2) the cake itself, and finally 3) the red present toppings to complete the festive desert.
Diamond Goal: Walk 400 yards.
Mouse Location: Behind the upper right side of the snowy awning above the pretzel.
The same tactics used on Level 1 apply to today, but today’s goal requires you to take the extra step, in a manner of speaking. Emily will need to walk 400 yards before the restaurant closes for the day. The easiest way to accomplish this is to click on any of the empty tables, followed by the register. Recycle this action whenever you’re not serving a customer: 1) click on an empty table, 2) click on the register, 3) click on an empty table, 4) click on a customer, etc. This will keep Emily moving back and forth whenever you have a free moment, allowing you to complete today’s objective with ease.
Diamond Goal: Throw snowballs with Paige.
Mouse Location: In the cup slot of the hot chocolate machine next to Patrick.
Francois is standing next to Patrick and the hot chocolate machine. Throughout the day, a “!” bubble will appear over this head. When this happens, click on Francois to have him throw snowballs with Paige. Do this 5 times before the end of the day to earn yourself a diamond.
New to the restaurant today is ham, which is cooked by the fire in the lower right corner. Whenever a customer orders baked ham, click on the ham in the basket on the lower right. This will place the ham on one of the skewers next to the fire. The ham will blink once it’s done cooking, at which point you can click on it to add it to your tray. Take the delicious Christmas treat to the customer who ordered it once finished!
Diamond Goal: Never let the fire burn out!
Mouse Location: Behind the top of the birdhouse above the cash register.
Don’t let the fire burn out today! Click on the wood log next to the cash register, or the fire itself to fuel the flames. You can do this as many times as you like, as often as you like, and it takes very little time. The best tactic to use in order to complete today’s objective is to throw a log into the fire whenever you’re not serving a customer. Do it again once you’ve finished serving a customer. Actually, why not do it twice? Do it as many times as you like, just make sure the fire doesn’t go out before the restaurant closes!
Diamond Goal: Never spill your chocolate milk.
Mouse Location: On the tree branch above Patrick’s head.
Hot chocolate milk is a hot ticket item today, and customers can’t get enough of it! Click on the machine to the left of Patrick to start filling a glass with the chocolate drink. A meter will appear showing how close to finished it is. When the needle lands in the green zone, click on the hot chocolate to finish filling the glass and add it to your tray. Now hand it over to the thirsty customer who ordered it – it’s that simple!
Delicious soup has also been added to today’s menu. Click on the pot in the lower left corner to restock your bowls of soup. You can have a maximum of 3 at any one time.
Diamond Goal: Help Paige with her costume.
Mouse Location: On the left side of the roof at the top of the screen, next to the vent.
Paige will wander into the restaurant from time to time today, looking for help with her costume. Whenever she stops next to the snowman and a “!” bubble appears over her head, this means you can now help her adjust it. Click on Paige to help her with her costume. You will need to do this 4 times before the end of today to complete today’s goal.
Tip! Emily will drop everything to help Paige, so make sure you’ve picked up any food items cooking by the fire, or served impatient customers before helping her!
Mmm, what’s that smell? Fresh waffles have been added to today’s menu! Click on a waffle in the hut by the snowman, followed by the bowl of syrup to top it off, creating a delectable winter treat for any customer who orders one.
Diamond Goal: Build a snowman with Paige!
Mouse Location: Above the table in the upper left corner, behind the right side of the Christmas tree.
Little Paige will come running up to the snowman a handful of times throughout your shift. When she stops next to the snowman and the “!” bubble appears over her head, click on her to have Patrick help her build the snowman. You will need to help Paige 5 times before the end of the day to complete the diamond goal for this level.
Tip! Chestnuts roasting on an open fire have passed from song into menu today! This new menu item can be found in the basket in the lower right corner.
Tip! Since Patrick is helping Paige build the snowman today, you won’t have help cleaning tables. Whenever a “!” bubble pops up over a table, Emily will need to clean it herself. Try to clean tables when customers at the counter are still thinking about what to order, or after you’ve checked them out at the register.
Diamond Goal: Earn the first star in the first half of the day.
Mouse Location: At the bottom of the Christmas tree in the upper left corner of the screen.
Completing today’s goal is all about balance. Focus on serving customers in a timely manner. Serve them back-to-back whenever you’re able, but don’t get too caught up in making combos! In order to make today’s goal, it can be easier to check out each customer as soon as they’re ready instead of waiting for big groups to check out all at once. If you wait too long by the time the first half of the day is done, you’ll have to retry the level to complete the goal. Keep an eye on the clock in the upper left corner!
Diamond Goal: Make all products & variations.
Mouse Location: Behind the snowman’s hat.
Today’s goal requires you to make every product and combination possible on your menu. There are a total of 13 possible products and combinations. They’re listed here:
- Christmas Bread
- Cake with candle and jello topping.
- Cake with cone candle and jello topping.
- Cake with jello topping only.
- Baked Ham (menu alternative: Baked Bread)
- Chestnut (menu alternative: Baked Banana)
- Waffles (Tip! Type of topping does not apply to goal)
- Hot Chocolate
Diamond Goal: Help Evelyn repack by finding her stuff!
Mouse Location: Hiding behind the board above the soups and below the awning.
Evelyn’s suitcase has burst open, creating a huge mess! Locate all 10 items that belong in her luggage before the day ends. Their locations are shown in the screenshot below.
The clock may be running, but not all trains run on the same schedule. Will Emily’s family vacation be derailed?
Diamond Goal: Serve 2 ecstatic customers of each customer type.
Mouse Location: In the center of the counter in the upper right corner.
Today’s goal is straight-forward: serve 2 ecstatic customers of each customer type. An ecstatic customer will have 5 hearts above their head when you check them out at the register. The three types of customers are young adults (blue and pink sports coats), middle-aged adults (puffy orange jackets), and seniors (grey or white hair). Each one you serve with 5 hearts will count toward your goal. Plenty of each type will show up today, so focus on serving customers as per normal, and the rest should be smooth-sailing.
Tip! Tables only count as a single customer. There is no differentiation in customer gender – only customer age/type.
Diamond Goal: Look at the trains with Paige.
Mouse Location: Behind the left pillar, between the stairs and the Christmas present.
Paige will be waiting by the station doors. Every time a train is about to come in, a “!” bubble will appear over her head. Click on Paige to have Emily go look at trains with her. Be mindful that Emily will drop everything she’s doing to go look at trains with Paige, so make sure you’re done picking up or prepping any items for customers first! Also, keep in mind that Emily is responsible for cleaning tables today as well. View trains with Paige a total of 4 times before the end of the day to complete the diamond goal.
Diamond Goal: Get 6 quick bonuses.
Mouse Location: Behind the right pillar, beside the rightmost table.
More children will come in today, and children are the most impatient customers of all. Try keeping one or two items prepped on your tray in advance before customers order. This will reduce the amount of time needed to gather items, and increase the chances of getting a quick bonus. Serve a customer a complete order quickly to obtain a quick bonus. It’s highly recommended you hold onto 1 package of candy and 1 cup of coffee – since these are very commonly ordered items today, and both take a little longer to prepare. Serve 6 customers with successful quick bonuses before the end of the day to earn today’s diamond.
Diamond Goal: Use only 2 slots on your tray.
Mouse Location: Hanging down from the top of the window on the left, outside the restaurant.
To earn today’s diamond, you can only use 2 slots on your tray at any given time. This is simple until the tables start ordering. Only take 2 items at a time to tables, then make a second trip to gather any remaining items. Purchase the Carol Singer upgrade to entertain tables as needed in order to increase their patience. Or, purchase the Red Deer Energy Drink to make Emily move faster – making the extra trips will take time!
Tip! While a transparent outline will appear on your tray, making pancakes, restocking soda, and restocking magazines does not count toward your 2-slot limit. Only items that remain on your tray that can be taken to customers count.
Diamond Goal: Don’t ever run out of stock of an item.
Mouse Location: Hanging down from the central doorway, beneath the clock.
If you have any menu upgrades that allow you to keep extra stock of an item, now is an excellent day to use them. You will need to keep the soda and the magazines in stock specifically. Restock the sodas by clicking on the trio of soda bottles, followed by the opener. Restock the magazines by clicking on the magazine stack beneath the cash register. Keep an eye on the number next to both. Try and restock every spare moment you have, and never let it drop below 1!
Diamond Goal: Don’t wake up the sleeping man!
Mouse Location: Just behind the Christmas gift sitting beside the bench with the sleeping man.
Those young boys are a nuisance! They will appear in the station a total of 6 times today, trying to wake the sleeping gentleman on the bench. A “!” will appear over the sleeping man near the station doors when the boys go to wake him. Click on him quickly to have Emily shoo the boys away.
Tip! Keep an eye on the station doors. The boys will only appear when they’re coming in to wake the older gentleman. When you see them approaching, you’ll know the “!” bubble is about to appear. Stop what you’re doing and run them off quickly before they disturb the man’s slumber.
Diamond Goal: Serve customers within 23 seconds of each other.
Mouse Location: Just outside the right door, behind the luggage cart.
Serve customers within 23 seconds of each other today. This is generally easy, until you need to start restocking items or buttering the pans. The best tactic to use is to try and continue to serve customers and check them out with 5 hearts, but try and drag it out as long as possible, without disturbing your rhythm. For example – a 4-heart customer may be at the counter, and you have their order in-hand. However, instead of serving them immediately, wait a moment. Let the bar in the upper right deplete and don’t serve the customer until a couple seconds later, or when their heart starts to blink. As long as the green on the upper right isn’t depleted, you’ll be buying yourself time for between customer waves. Slower table customers can also take a while, so try to stretch time out in this manner as much as possible. The goal will not be completed until the last customer leaves.
Tip! The countdown will continue after all customers have been served and will only stop when the last customer is checked out at the register. Checking out customers does not count toward the countdown.
Diamond Goal: Let the blinds completely close 3 times.
Mouse Location: On the far right side of the screen, beneath the candy rack.
There is a set of blinds in the upper right corner. They will gradually lower throughout the day. As soon as the blinds have lowered completely, click on them to have Emily open them again. The blinds cover the newspapers that customers may order. However, customers do not order newspapers often, so don’t worry about keeping the blinds open all the time. As soon as they’re closed, though, go and open them! You will need to do this a total of 3 times before the end of the day.
Diamond Goal: Get the supplies on the train.
Mouse Location: To the left of the serving counter with all the cookie platters.
A delivery man will show up near the steps on the left with packages. A package icon above his head signifies you can collect the package from him. Click on the delivery man to have Emily collect the package, and subsequently take it to the train for packing. You will need to do this a total of 6 times before the end of the day to complete your goal.
Tip! Serve impatient customers before collecting the packages. Emily will be busy for approximately 6 seconds every time she goes to collect a package.
Diamond Goal: Get the suitcases on the train.
Mouse Location: Behind the left pillar, just above the right railing of the landing on the upper left.
You will need to take 7 loads of suitcases to the train before the day is through to earn today’s diamond. A “!” bubble will appear over the pile of suitcases next to the door indicating when you can take another piece of luggage to the train. It takes approximately 8 seconds for Emily to go to the luggage cart, then place the suitcase on the train. Clicking on a suitcase will put all other actions on hold, even if you’re partway through, so make sure you’re finished with prepping items and serving them to customers before helping load luggage.
All are aboard and settled in. This may be the Miracle Express, but it will take a miracle not to be late!
Diamond Goal: Don’t serve anyone for 30 seconds.
Mouse Location: On top of the second suitcase on the lower right.
Go through today as per normal, acquainting yourself with the new setting of the train car restaurant. Ignore today’s objective until you’ve reached the very last customer of the day. After serving the last customer, wait at the cash register for 30 seconds to earn today’s diamond, then check out the customer. The meter in the upper right corner will keep track of your progress. Completing the day this way will prevent you from falling behind with other customers.
Diamond Goal: Don’t serve drinks to kids.
Mouse Location: Behind the upper right corner at the top of the green coffee machine.
Nice try, kid! Wine is for adults only. Children will attempt to order wine throughout the day. When a child shows up at the counter and orders wine, don’t serve them! Instead, ignore the child until they become angry enough that they leave on your own. Continue to serve other customers as per normal, and that diamond is good as yours.
Tip! All children who attempt to order wine will show up at the counter, and won’t sit at a table. Wine is the only item they will order, so feel free to ignore them entirely.
Diamond Goal: Get rid of the suitcases and bags.
Mouse Location: Behind the pile of suitcases on the left seat of the upper left booth.
There are 4 piles of suitcases you will need to clear off the seats. A “!” will pop up indicating that a suitcase can be moved. When this happens, click on the suitcase to have Emily get rid of it. Clicking on a suitcase will interrupt any actions Emily is currently working on, so don’t click on them until you’ve completed any current prep or serving first.
Diamond Goal: Take the machinist their breakfast.
Mouse Location: On the floor right next to the cash register.
Paige is quite the little helper, and today is no exception. Throughout the day she will show up on the right side of your screen, requesting a specific food item. Prepare this item and give it to Paige, so she in turn can give it to the machinist. You will need to deliver a total of 8 items to Paige throughout the day.
Tip! Paige does not count toward customer combos, so when serving her and other customers at the same time, always make sure she’s either first or last, otherwise your combo chain will be broken.
Diamond Goal: Count the reindeer!
Mouse Location: Behind the left side of the silverware cart.
Paige will be sitting in the upper left booth today. Every time she sees a reindeer, a “!” bubble will pop up over her head. Click on the bubble to have Paige count the reindeer. You will need to do this a total of 8 times before the end of the day to earn your diamond.
Tip! Clicking on Paige doesn’t interfere with Emily’s tasks, so always click on her the moment you notice the “!” bubble appear.
Diamond Goal: Pick up everything that fell.
Mouse Location: Outside the rightmost window, toward the upper left corner.
A total of 10 items have fallen and scattered around the train car. Find them all before the end of the day to complete your diamond objective. The item locations are pictured here:
Diamond Goal: Serve customers within 20 seconds of each other.
Mouse Location: On the upper counter between the candy canes and the desserts.
Similar to Level 17, you will need to serve customers within 20 seconds of each other. Utilize the same tactics as before, waiting before serving customers to stretch out the amount of time you have available. This will prove especially useful when you encounter slower table customers who may need extra time. To see this strategy in action, refer to the Video Walkthrough section below.
Diamond Goal: Clean 3 tables in a row 1 time.
Mouse Location: On the far right, at the top of the red carpet.
By now cleaning tables should feel pretty automatic, especially with the help of Francois. However, after the first table customer leaves, allow other customers to sit at the other tables, until at least 3 have the “!” bubbles above them, indicating they need to be cleaned. When this happens, click on all 3 tables consecutively to have Francois clean them, earning you yet another diamond.
Diamond Goal: Serve full orders only.
Mouse Location: At the lower left corner of the silverware cart on the left.
You can only serve complete orders today, otherwise you’ll fail today’s diamond objective. Make sure you serve customers all the items they’ve asked for, the first time. Keep in mind that you have 6 slots to work with. Use them wisely!
Diamond Goal: Have every product fully stocked.
Mouse Location: Behind the top step of the step stool used to restock the wine and candies.
There are 3 items you should worry about today: wine, soup, and candy. A number will appear next to each indicating how many are in stock. However, today’s goal is much simpler than you might think. Simply fully stock all 3 items – at any point during the day – to earn your final diamond for this chapter.
Tip! If you have menu upgrades for any of these products that give them extra stock, make sure you take this into consideration with today’s objective!
You know Dasher and Dancer, Prancer and Vixen, Comet and Cupid, Donner and Blitzen. Filled with holiday charm, it’s time to visit Holly’s Reindeer Farm.
Diamond Goal: Keep the reindeer away from Evelyn.
Mouse Location: On the ground between the second and third stable doors.
The reindeer are very interested in Evelyn, but she wants nothing to do with them. Whenever you see Evelyn run around the restaurant, a reindeer is sure to follow. Click on the reindeer with the “!” bubble over its head to have Emily shoo it away from her mother. Do this successfully 6 times before the end of the day to complete your goal.
Diamond Goal: Get 25 combos and bonuses.
Mouse Location: Behind the top of the fence, above the green water pump.
Get 25 combos and bonuses before the last customer leaves. There are several ways you can earn combos that count toward today’s total:
- Full Orders – Give a customer all the items they’ve asked for the first time.
- Quick! – Serve customers quickly after they’ve made their order.
- Serve In-A-Row – Serve 2 customers their full orders back-to-back, without any preparation or checking out in between. You only have 3 tray slots today, so you will only be able to do this with customers who order 2 items, and a reindeer who’s ordered either hay or water.
- Combo – Check out 2 or more customers at a time at the cash register.
Tip! You can check out a maximum of 3 customers at a time at the cash register.
Diamond Goal: Take care of Rudy.
Mouse Location: Popping out of the top of the juicer on the right.
It’s Paige’s job to look after Rudy today, but she’ll need a little help! Paige will wander over to Rudy’s stall, and a bubble will pop up over her head asking for hay. Pick up the item Paige needs and give it to her so she can help Rudy. Do this a total of 5 times before the end of the day to earn the diamond.
Diamond Goal: Don’t make the same product twice in a row.
Mouse Location: Next to the stone supports of the rightmost counter, beside the fruit used for pies.
Today’s goal requires you to avoid making the same product twice in a row. The best way to avoid this when confronted with double orders of the same item is to use your empty tray slots to your advantage. For example: If a customer 1 orders an apple pie, and customer 2 also orders an apple pie, do not make 2 apple pies back-to-back! Instead, make 1 apple pie, pick up 1 container of honey, and then make the 2nd apple pie. Remove the extra container of honey from your tray and serve the 2 apple pies. You can serve the same items back-to-back, you just can’t make them back-to-back! To see this strategy in action, refer to Level 34 of our Video Walkthrough playlist below.
Diamond Goal: Serve 5 customers within a minute.
Mouse Location: Behind the bush with the berries for drinks, at Patrick’s feet.
Serve 5 customers within a minute before the end of the day. You should be able to play through the day normally and achieve this goal with little trouble. However, if you find yourself struggling, remember to keep the water bucket filled by clicking on the green pump, and prepare any hard-to-make products (such as fruit drinks or pies) in advance.
Diamond Goal: Defrost the watering bucket!
Mouse Location: In the lower left corner of the screen, below the basket with the scoop.
All this cold weather is making the reindeer thirsty! They’ll be requesting lots of water today – only instead of keeping the water bucket full, you’ll also need to defrost it! The water bucket tends to freeze over very quickly, so only click on the bucket to defrost it if you have time between customers, or when a reindeer needs it. A meter will appear over the water bucket indicating how far along the defrosting is. Defrost the water bucket enough times for the meter in the upper right corner to fill up completely. Once the meter is filled, the water will no longer freeze for the rest of the level, and the diamond is as good as yours!
Tip! Keep a close eye on the water bucket! There’s no “!” bubble today indicating when it’s frozen over.
Diamond Goal: Fill your tray with spices, twice.
Mouse Location: Behind the pillar between the first and second reindeer stalls.
There’s 2 simple ways to go about today’s goal. Either fill your tray with spices (located underneath the counter) as soon as the day starts until the tray is full, or wait until enough customers have ordered spices for the tray to be full. Do this twice in total to earn today’s diamond. The first tactic is easiest, though spices will be a very popular menu item today, leaving you with options on how to complete the objective.
Tip! Any combination of spices counts toward today’s goal.
Diamond Goal: Console Paige.
Mouse Location: To the left of the green water pump, behind the caroler.
Paige is having a difficult day, and there’s nothing more comforting than the warmth of a mother’s embrace. Paige is standing next to Rudy’s stall. A meter will appear over her head throughout the day, indicating how much time you have left to console her (Note: a second meter is in the upper right corner of your screen). You will need to click on Paige and have Emily comfort her in order to refill this meter. The meter will continue running down, up until the point the last customer leaves. Try to console Paige by the time the meter reaches the halfway point to stay on top of things. Comforting Paige between customer orders and servings is also a good idea.
Tip! If you see Paige’s meter blinking, don’t panic! Click on her right away to have the meter run-down stop. Emily will tend to her as soon as all current tasks are complete.
Diamond Goal: Don’t ever run out of stock of an item.
Mouse Location: Hanging down from the stable roof, above the topmost customer table.
There are only 2 items you need to worry about today: berries and walnuts. If you have at least 1 left of each before the end of the day, the diamond is yours! However, it’s best to keep on top of things. Click on the berry bush above the juicer to restock berries between customers. Keep an eye on the squirrel scampering about to locate walnuts on the ground. Both juice and walnuts are popular menu items today. It’s recommended you pick up walnuts before and after serving customers as soon as you spot them on the ground.
Tip! Don’t worry if the squirrel is standing in the way of a walnut. Click on the squirrel to shoo them away, then click on the walnut to collect it.
Diamond Goal: Get 500 in tips.
Mouse Location: Hanging down from beneath the counter on the far right, below the bow for the fruit pitchers.
Today’s objective is all about your menu. Customize your menu before clicking the Play button to start the day. Choose items with the “$” sign, indicating they will give you bonus Choice Tips when served to customers. Fill your menu with as many of these as possible. Be mindful if you’re changing out already upgraded menu items – such as spill-proof juice and burn-proof pie! Earn a total of 500 in tips by the time your last customer leaves to earn today’s diamond.
There’s no misfits to be found in this toy shop. Well, except for perhaps one spoiled boy…
Diamond Goal: Serve 3 kids in a row.
Mouse Location: In the bottom left shelf, toward the upper left corner of the screen.
Serve 3 kids in a row before the end of the day. This may seem simple, but it’s quite tricky. The goal is to wait for the perfect moment, otherwise impatient customers will leave angry. The ideal moment will most likely show up around the day’s halfway point. If you see 3 groups of children, now’s your chance! But be careful of any adults queueing at the counter that might interrupt your combo. Only serving children counts, not checking them out.
Tip! Groups of children sitting at a table count as 1 toward your goal.
Diamond Goal: Make a nutcracker with Paige.
Mouse Location: Popping out of the top of the pink gift box toward the upper right.
Paige will wander into the lower right corner of the shop, asking for a specific item. Locate the item she’s asking for, then hand it to her so she can make the nutcracker. You will need to do this a total of 7 times before the end of the day. All nutcracker pieces are shown in the screenshot below.
Tip! When you pick up a piece of the nutcracker, it will be set on your tray. If you accidentally pick up the wrong piece, or don’t have enough room on your tray, click on one of the pieces on your tray to have it put back in the same place you found it in the shop.
Diamond Goal: Never check out just one person at a time.
Mouse Location: Behind the blue gift box at the bottom of the screen, toward the lower left corner.
Never check out just one person at a time! Instead, make sure you always check out customers in groups of 2 or 3. Purchasing the Roller Skates upgrade can help Mary move faster, and the Pole Poles upgrade will help customers at the counter be more patient. Both are very useful for today.
Diamond Goal: Get 6 quick bonuses.
Mouse Location: Popping out of the left side of the rightmost staircase, above the train tracks.
Serve customers quickly after they’ve ordered to earn a Quick Bonus. The Roller Skates and Sweet Letters From Kids upgrades can help Mary move faster, making this goal more obtainable. Keep items in stock. Take note of which items are popular today, and try keeping 1 or 2 on your tray so you can serve an upcoming customer faster. Earn 6 of these bonuses before the end of the day to complete your objective.
Tip! Try keeping Paint handy on your tray. Quick Bonuses are most likely to be earned from customers who order Paint, Dolls, or Sports Balls, since they require no extra assembly.
Diamond Goal: Recharge all the toys.
Mouse Location: Behind the center portion of the guard rail above the train tracks.
Bradley needs help recharging his many toys. Throughout the day, a “!” bubble will appear over his head, indicating he needs help recharging toys. Click on him to have Mary help him. You will need to do this a total of 8 times before the end of the day to earn the diamond objective.
Tip! Clicking on Bradley will cancel all other actions, so make sure to only click on him before or after you’ve served a customer, and not during product assembly or checkout.
Diamond Goal: Complete the chores.
Mouse Location: On the floor between the left staircase and the paint dispenser.
Click on the small messes scattered throughout the shop today. Paige is quite the helper, and will clean them up for you, so you don’t have to worry about them slowing down Emily. For all mess locations, refer to the screenshot below.
Tip! Wait for Paige to finish cleaning a mess before clicking on the next one, or else she might forget to clean the whole thing!
Diamond Goal: Fix the train when it gets stuck.
Mouse Location: Between the right corner of the bottom counter and the green gift box with the plushes.
The train carrying the restockable toys will break down several times today. When this happens, the train will stop, and a “!” bubble will appear over the engine. Click on the engine to have Mary repair it. A meter will appear over the engine showing how close the repair is to completion. Do this 6 times before the end of the day to complete your objective.
Diamond Goal: Create 30 wooden toy animals.
Mouse Location: Behind the elf head to the right of the entry door to the shop.
Today you will need to make a total of 30 wooden toy animals before the end of the day. Create wooden toys every spare moment you have when you’re not serving customers. It’s best to focus on a simpler toy, such as polar bear + wooden cart (right) + red wheels. Remove any spare toys from your tray by clicking on them. Wooden toys are very popular today, however, so if you focus on making toys every chance you get, you should be able to complete the goal comfortably by the time the day is halfway through.
Diamond Goal: Tag only children without a ball.
Mouse Location: On the far right, between the guard rail and the pink gift box below Emily.
The children are especially playful today. Between bouts of tag, the girl wearing the tan coat and red hat will stop and wave her arms. When this happens, click on her right away to tag her! She tends to show up in 2 locations, shown in the screenshot below. Missing her even once will cause you to fail today’s goal, so keep a sharp eye out!
Diamond Goal: Serve 2 full trays of items.
Mouse Location: On the far left, near the bottom corner of the bottom left shelf, behind the guard rail.
Serve 2 full trays of items before the end of the day. Only tables with orders of 4 items count toward today’s goal. You do not need to serve them back-to-back. Just make sure that when a table of 4 comes in, you serve a full order, and you’ll be golden.
Tip! Serving 2 orders of 2 items at the same time at the counter does not count toward today’s goal.
The warmth of the holiday season culminates in a welcoming fire, a brightly-decorated Christmas tree, and freshly baked cookies.
Diamond Goal: Walk 1,000 yards.
Mouse Location: Next to the gift boxes on the left, in front of the pink box.
Today’s goal is to walk 1,000 yards before the restaurant closes. Alternate clicking on the cash register and the small table in front of the couch on the right whenever you’re not serving customers or preparing items to achieve your goal.
Diamond Goal: Serve 12 ecstatic customers.
Mouse Location: Beneath the lower right corner of the Christmas tree.
Serve 12 ecstatic customers before the final customer checks out for the day. An ecstatic customer is one with 5 hearts upon being checked out at the register. Serve customers quick, full orders in order to make them happiest. You may want to keep a hot cider on your tray to save a trip today.
Diamond Goal: Give Francois everything he needs.
Mouse Location: Behind the right doorway curtain in the upper right corner of the room.
Francois will appear in the bottom right corner throughout the day, requesting items. Collect the items Francois requests, then give him these items. You will need to do this 8 times before the end of the day in order to complete your goal.
Tip! Giving items to Francois alongside customers does not count as a bonus! Make sure you serve him either before or after other customers.
Diamond Goal: Never have 2 of the same items on your tray.
Mouse Location: On the floor between the central counter and the oven.
The trickiest part of today’s goal comes when customers order 2 of the same item. When this happens, collect the 1st item and serve that to the customer, then go back and grab the 2nd. It is necessary to split orders in this way to complete today’s diamond goal. Use upgrades as necessary to keep customers patient. It’s even more important to serve full orders to other customers to increase your score today. To see today’s strategy in action, refer to Level 54 of our Video Walkthrough.
Diamond Goal: Find the magic sprinkles.
Mouse Location: Behind the far left railing on the left side of the room.
In addition to Emily running the restaurant, Patrick will be on the hunt for missing magic sprinkles. Click on the “!” that appears over Patrick’s head to have him search. He will need to search 4 locations before the end of the day. Patrick’s searching does not affect Emily’s work, so click on him as soon as the “!” appears without hesitation.
Diamond Goal: Keep every customer happy (or better).
Mouse Location: Behind the upper left side of the Christmas tree, in front of the carolers.
Today is all about keeping customers happy. All customers will need to be checked out with a minimum of 4 hearts in order for you to earn today’s diamond. This is an excellent time to invest in any and all upgrades you can afford that increase customers’ patience. The Christmas Vinyl upgrade will also help Emily move faster as needed. If you’ve unlocked the spill-proof Chocolate Milk, now is the perfect time to add it to your menu. Focus on serving customers, preferably full orders, as quickly as possible. Don’t worry too much about combos – instead, focus on speed. Counter customers are more important than table customers, who can be cheered up with the Carol Singers upgrade.
Diamond Goal: Let food burn at least 10 times.
Mouse Location: Outside, at the top of the window to the left of the door.
Specifically, burn 10 hams (or ducks, if you have the menu upgrade). You can cook a total of 2 at a time. Click on the meat beneath the front counter to throw it in the oven. Once there, leave it, even after it’s fully cooked. The meat will burn and disappear after a few seconds have passed. Do this a total of 10 times before the end of the day in order to achieve your goal.
Tip! Don’t forget to restock meat for meals, too! Meats are very popular today. Don’t become so busy burning that you forget to restock when low.
Diamond Goal: Make all products and variations twice.
Mouse Location: Poking out from behind the right side of the pillar to the right of the stove.
Today requires a lot of concentration. Start by making the more complicated menu items, even before customers have ordered. You will need to add an item to your tray for it to count as being made. Customers’ orders count, but making things back-to-back in advance is simplest. Don’t forget, you’ll need to make each twice, so try to add 2 at a time to your tray so you don’t accidentally forget something! The following is a list of all products and combinations:
- Drink (Iced Tea/Chocolate Milk) x2
- Socks (Candy Cane + Christmas Stocking) x2
- Tree Topper x2
- Bell Ornament x2
- Ball Ornament (including Star Ornament) x2
- Cookie Ornament x2
- Hot Tea x2
- Both variations of Desserts, x2
- Candle Wreath with no wreath ring, x2
- Candle Wreath with no berries/acorn, x2
- Candle Wreath (complete) x2
- Ham with greens and gravy, no potatoes x2
- Ham with potatoes and gravy, no greens x2
- Ham with greens, potatoes, and gravy x2
- 1st gift box (set of 3) x2
- 2nd gift box (set of 3) x2
- 3rd gift box (set of 3) x2
- 3 gift combination (all types) x2
Tip! It’s recommended you use Ham instead of Duck as today’s meat to keep things simpler.
Diamond Goal: Entertain at least 7 customers.
Mouse Location: In the lower left corner of the screen, near the candle.
Purchase the Carol Singers upgrade in the Upgrade menu if you haven’t already. Every time a new group of customers sits at a table, click on the Carol Singers and send them to that table to entertain them. Do this a total of 7 times for sets of customers to complete today’s goal.
Tip! Sending the Carol Singers to the same customer group at a table more than once doesn’t count!
Diamond Goal: Help pack the presents for the sleigh.
Mouse Location: On the floor at the bottom left corner of the landing on the upper right.
Patrick will show up in front of the fireplace throughout the day, gift in hand. A “!” bubble will appear over his head when he’s ready for you to collect the present he holds. Click on him to have Emily collect the present and take it to the sleigh outside. Doing this will cancel or postpone all other actions Emily is currently doing, though, so only click on Patrick before or after serving customers. It will take Emily a handful of seconds to complete the task. Do this a total of 6 times to finish the level with the diamond standard.
–Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse – Wait! There’s one more!
Diamond Goal: Help the kids put on their ice skates.
Mouse Location: Inside the back of the bird feeder, above the cash register.
We knew that ice skate upgrade would come in handy! Today is an extremely busy day, and you will want all upgrades and menu upgrades you’ve got to stay on top of things. Paige and the other children throughout the game will wait patiently by the frozen pond for help putting on their ice skates. A “!” bubble above their heads will indicate when they’re ready for Emily. Click on the child to have Emily help them put on their ice skates. A meter will appear showing your progress. Help all the children onto the ice before the end of the day to complete the last diamond goal.
Tip! Prepare a Hot Chocolate drink at the machine and keep it on your tray. This will help speed things along when customers order one. As soon as that pre-made drink has been ordered, make another to keep handy on your tray for quick service. Don’t forget – if you have the Mint Hot Chocolate on your menu, click on the machine again after you collect the drink to have another ready-made one waiting for you later.
Tip! Customize today’s menu by revisiting Levels 2-10 (don’t pick Level 1 unless you want to rewatch the intro). Once you’ve customized your menu to be the best it can possibly be, click on the Options icon in the upper left corner and select Map to return to Level 61 on the far right.
Congratulations! You’ve completed Delicious – Emily’s Christmas Carol! Have you earned all the Diamonds and completed all the Challenges yet? Is there still a mouse eluding you? Keep scrolling for more tips and tricks on how to reach 100% completion.
There are 30 Challenge levels – 5 per restaurant. This section of our guide covers each individual challenge and includes tips, tricks, and strategies on how to complete each one.
Chapter 1 – Emily’s Garden
Keep Moving – Don’t stand still for more than 8 seconds.
When not serving customers, alternate clicking on the counter/cash register, and one of the empty tables. This will keep Emily moving between the two locations. Continue doing this up until the point the last customer is checked out at the register to complete your goal.
Gimme a Break(ing tray) – Work with a slowly breaking tray.
The tray in the lower left corner will slowly break throughout the day. You will start with 4 slots, eventually ending up with only 1. The tray will lose a slot every clock quarter. Try to make larger combos at the start of the day. As soon as you lose your first slot, it’s best to focus on single full orders (2-3 items). Be ready to move quickly during the last quarter of the day, since you will need to make one trip per item ordered. If you have the chocolate upgrade, save this until the last quarter of the day to speed up Emily and keep customers happy.
Snow Tables – Clear the snow from the tables, otherwise people can’t sit down!
The tables will start out clear. Once a customer has finished eating, a “!” will appear indicating the table needs to be cleaned. As soon as you clean the table, that’s when the snow will fall. Click on the table with the “!” notification again to start clearing it of snow. A meter will appear above the table showing how far along the clearing process is. Customers cannot eat at a table again until it’s cleared, so make sure not to leave these for too long!
Tip! If you’re having trouble clearing a table of snow, or Emily isn’t responding, try clicking on the nearby log to stoke the fire. Then, click on the table again to have Emily start clearing it.
Carl’s Party – Carl’s family is here. Can you find them all?
Mice, mice everywhere! Carl the mouse’s family will pop up all over the restaurant throughout the day. Listen for the tell-tale squeak indicating one of these rodents has appeared. Mice appear very often, so if you get bogged down with orders, don’t panic! It’s better to take care of your customers, then focus on catching the mice. Mice tend to show up in the same locations. Refer to the Mouse Locations section for more details.
Order Memory – Remember each customer’s order, because they will slowly disappear.
About 6 seconds after a customer or table has ordered, their order will disappear, and a “?” mark will take its place. Focus on serving customers as soon as they reveal their order, and try to serve full (complete) orders as much as possible. In the event you can’t remember a customer’s order, click on the customer to have Emily go to them, temporarily revealing what items you’re still missing.
Tip! Try to keep a milkshake on hand or ready-made. These orders will slow you down, so try to be prepared ahead of time.
Chapter 2 – George’s Train Station
The Mondays – Customers enter in a bad mood.
Customers entering the station today will all start with 3 hearts. Purchasing the Carol Singer upgrade before starting the day will help you immensely. Using this strategy, serve all counter customers as quickly as possible – don’t worry about combos. As soon as a table customer sits down, have the Caroler go to them and sing to improve their mood. Do this twice, or once with a quickly-served order, in order to check out 5-heart customers at the register when they’re ready to leave.
Tipping Point – Only tips count towards your score.
Only tips count toward your score today. Tips include Quick orders (+10), Full Orders (+5), and Choice Tip. Serve a customer quickly after they’ve ordered to receive a Quick order bonus. Full Order bonuses are the most important tip you’ll be receiving today. Make sure you serve complete orders to all customers. Use the Caroler as necessary to keep customers patient, though it’s better to serve them quickly. When choosing your Menu at the start of the day, choose items that give bonus tips, aka Choice Tips. Serving these items will automatically give you bonus tips, regardless of the customers or how happy they are.
Tip! Look for the “$” icon next to Menu items before starting the day to choose menu items with a Choice Tip.
Tiny Order – Serve Carl, the mouse.
Carl the mouse will pop up in the upper right corner, next to the magazines. He will pop up a total of 6 times requesting different menu items. Serve Carl 6 times while keeping all other customers happy to complete today’s diamond challenge.
Tip! Don’t forget to keep the skillets buttered and the magazines and sodas in full stock!
I’ll Do It Myself – The cleaner is sick.
It’s a very busy day, and the cleaner is sick. This means you’ll be responsible for cleaning all the tables yourself. Keep an eye out for the “!” icon over a table, indicating it needs to be cleaned. Serve counter customers first, but try to clean tables quickly, or else new customers won’t have a place to sit.
Red Deer gives you wings! – Infinite red deer energy drinks, use them! Tip: Check the shop.
To complete today’s challenge, you will first need to purchase the Red Deer Energy Drink upgrade in the shop for 250 coins. The energy drink will appear next to the pack of soda bottles at the bottom of your screen. Click on an energy drink to use it. Do this all throughout the day while serving customers to complete today’s challenge. It’s that simple!
Chapter 3 – The Miracle Express
Customer Combo – Only customers paying in pairs give points.
Check customers out in 2’s at the cash register. If a single customer at the counter is growing impatient, don’t rush it! Checking out a single impatient customer won’t give you any score. But if you wait for a second customer, you will receive points toward your score.
Tip! You can also check out customers in groups of 3 to receive full points.
Tip! Tips will automatically be added to your score, regardless of whether or not a customer was checked out as a pair.
Stop and Drop – If the train bumps, things will fall off your tray.
The tracks are rough today, and the train will shake about once every 20 seconds. When the train shakes, Emily will stop, and the last item she put on her tray will fall off. If you have nothing on your tray, you have nothing to worry about. The best trick to use today is to try and serve customers as quickly as possible in short spurts. If the train shakes and shudders, that’s the best time to gather a large number of items to give to customers to complete their orders. However, if it’s been a while, be careful – you may end up losing an item. Therefore, it’s important to try and stick to single orders when the going is smooth.
Tip! Use the Star Anise Tea upgrade to help Emily move faster and deliver large orders before the train shakes.
Perfect Player – Play perfectly, without removing any items from your tray.
The key to today is not to make any mistakes. Don’t rush it! Look at customers’ orders carefully, ensuring you don’t accidentally pick up the wrong item. Try to be especially careful when serving dinner plates. These can vary, so look carefully at each customer’s order before you rush into making it. It’s better to take your time and make sure the order is correct, otherwise you’ll fail today’s challenge.
Tip! Use the Carol Singer to keep table customers happy if you need extra time to double-check an order.
Party Day – Only children will visit the restaurant today!
Only children will show up today. In addition to being impatient, children don’t give high tips. Keeping them happy and serving them quickly is essential to keeping your score high. Use your upgrades and make sure your menu has plenty of Choice Tips. And don’t worry about restocking wine – the children aren’t allowed to drink.
Tip! Children love sweets, so cakes and candy will be especially popular items today.
Entertainer Frenzy – Entertaining adds 100 points to your score.
If you haven’t already, you will want to purchase the Carol Singer upgrade before starting today. Every time customers sit at a table, send the Caroler over right away. You will receive +100 extra points to your score for each table you entertain. Keep in mind this score bonus only applies once per table*, but you can use the Carol Singer as many times as you need to keep a table happy.
*Once per set of customers at a table. As soon as a set of customers leave and another group sits at the table, entertain the newcomers for another +100 to your score.
Chapter 4 – Holly’s Reindeer Farm
First Come, First Served – Serve people in the order they come in.
Keep a sharp eye on the order in which customers enter the restaurant. A good tactic to use is to try and keep one pitcher of juice ready to go at all times, ensuring you can serve customers quickly. The key to keeping on top of today’s challenge is to serve the incoming customers as quickly as possible. This way, you won’t be confused if the restaurant gets too busy.
Tip! Upgrades that increase customer patience can help keep customers happy in the event you need a little extra time.
Carl’s Party II – Back due to popular request, find Carl’s friends.
Carl’s friends and family are back and are popping up all over the place. Listen for the squeaks indicating one of these festive rodents are nearby, then click on them. Place priority on order customers, since there’s plenty of time to find mice. Mice tend to pop up in the same locations throughout the area. Refer to the Mouse Locations section for more details.
Reindeer Games – The reindeer are very hungry today.
The reindeer are especially hungry today, but today’s challenge lies in the fact they’re also very thirsty! Make sure the water bucket beneath the green pump is filled again the moment the bucket is empty (after giving the full one to a reindeer). Keep this filled, and you shouldn’t fall behind the increase in order volume. If you need extra time to refill the bucket, use the Caroler to help customers wait more happily.
Quick and Clean – Clean tables within 8 seconds.
When the “!” mark pops up over a table, you have approximately 8 seconds to clean it. Drop everything you’re doing and address this right away. It takes about 3 seconds to clean a table, and these seconds count! Any actions Emily may currently be doing also eat into this time. The “!” bubble will start to blink when you’ve only got a few seconds left.
Double Order – Table customers will order twice.
Today’s challenge lies in keeping items in stock and readily available. Table customers will order twice. Try to choose burn and spill-resistant items for your menu today. Use the entertainer to keep tables happy if you find yourself busy with the number of orders you’re handling. Remember, you can entertain table customers to improve their mood, but customers at the register can’t be cheered up this way. Therefore, place priority on checking out these customers before addressing table customers.
Chapter 5 – Mary’s Toy Shop
Mary is Tired – Don’t make Mary walk too much, or she’ll get really slow!
All walking Mary does today will show up on the meter in the upper right corner. It takes a moment for the meter to drain again. If the meter fills up completely, Mary will move especially slow for a short period of time. Try to keep movement to a minimum today by serving full orders. Use the restocking train as a nifty stop-over point as needed to help Mary regain her energy. If Mary accidentally walks too much, it won’t affect your goal – only your score. However, it will make it more difficult, so tread carefully.
Sponsored Walk – Don’t stand still for more than 8 seconds.
The exact opposite of Challenge 21, this challenge requires Mary to be in a constant state of movement. Alternate clicking on one of the customer tables (either the lower left or upper right tables) and the cash register to have Mary move back and forth. The area in which you’ll need to use the most caution is restocking and building wooden toys. If you take 8 seconds or more doing either, you will fail today’s challenge. Restock often. If you need to move between making orders of toys, click on the table to the immediate right before returning to the toy shelf.
Breaking Appliances – Fix all the appliances that break.
The Paint Dispenser is in poor working order today, and needs to be repaired very often. Once repaired, the appliance will break down again approximately 10 seconds later. There is no “!” icon indicating the appliance needs to be repaired. Instead, keep an eye out for when it leans to the right, paint overflowing from the top and onto the floor. Once selected, a meter will appear over the appliance showing how far along the repairs are. Repair the appliance repeatedly as it breaks down, until the meter in the upper right corner is filled completely. Once the meter is filled, the appliance won’t break down again for the rest of the day.
Tip! You cannot pick up jars of Paint for your tray unless the appliance is fixed, and any pre-made Paints sitting at the appliance will disappear as soon as it breaks down again. As such, keeping a spare jar of Paint on your tray today is a good idea.
All Things Equal – Alternate between table and counter customers.
Alternate between serving table and counter customers. When you start the day, serve the table customers first, before serving your first counter customer. Once you’ve done this, serve the customer at the counter. Serve the next table that comes in next, followed by the following counter customer. Repeat this back-and-forth throughout the entire day, up until the last customer has left. If there are 2 tables waiting to be served, or 2 counter customers, wait until the alternate customer type (table or counter) arrives and serve them, otherwise you’ll fail the challenge.
Tip! Checking customers out at the register doesn’t count toward today’s objective.
Setting An Example – Never make a product only once.
This is perhaps the hardest challenge of them all. Before starting, purchase all upgrades available to you, particularly those that increase customer patience and speed up Mary. You will need all your concentration to accomplish today’s goal!
Every time a customer orders an item, you will need to make 2 of that item. No exceptions. So, if a customer orders a Santa Doll and a Volleyball, you will need to make 2 Santa Dolls back-to-back, followed by 2 Volleyballs back-to-back. Or, 2 Volleyballs back-to-back, followed by 2 Santa Dolls back-to-back. It doesn’t matter if a customer only orders 1. You need to make 2, back-to-back.
If a customer orders, for example – 2 Snow Globes, you can make 2 Snow Globes back-to-back. You do not need to make 4. However, if a customer orders 3 Snow Globes, you will need to make 4 Snow Globes back-to-back.
If a customer orders a wooden toy, you will need to make two of the same variation of wooden toy. So, for example – if a customer orders a Polar Bear in a Cart, and an Angel in a Tractor, you will need to make 2 Polar Bears in Carts, and 2 Angels in Tractors.
You will inevitably end up with extra items on your tray. You have two options – you can either 1) click on the item to remove it from your tray, or 2) leave it on your tray to serve to a future customer for their future order. For example, if a customer orders 1 Snow Globe, you will need to make 2 Snow Globes. If you chose to leave that extra Snow Globe on your tray, and another customer comes in and orders 1 Snow Globe, you can serve them that Snow Globe, without having to make 2 more.
If you’re struggling with this Challenge, it’s highly recommended you refer to our Video Walkthrough below.
Tip! Don’t forget to restock items!
Tip! Take note of any particularly popular items you seem to be making a lot of. These are the best items to leave on your tray.
Tip! Use the Carol Singer to keep tables happy and focus on serving counter customers first. The exception to this rule is if a table customer wants an item on your tray. Give that item to them first, before serving your counter customers (provided no counter customers want that item). You should not be worried about combos today.
Chapter 6 – Santa’s Home
VIP – Serve Santa first!
Santa’s a frequent customer today, and when he’s at the counter, you’ll want to serve him first! Don’t worry about Santa while he’s still thinking with the “…” bubble over his head. But, as soon as he orders and the triangular “!” icon appears, make sure Santa is the very next customer you serve. Santa can be checked out with other customers, so you only need to worry about serving him first once he’s made up his mind.
Superspeed – Everything works superfast.
Everything is sped up today! Serve customers as per normal. Other than the speed increase, everything else is the same. Combos can be a little harder to pull off, though, especially if there’s children at the counter. Try to check them out at the register before they check themselves out of the door!
Triple Threat – Table customers order 3 times.
It’s closer to Christmas, and with longer hours comes longer dinners. Each table will order a total of 3 times before they’re ready to pay at the register. Make sure you keep all items stocked and all tables well-entertained. Tables are more likely to be full, so be careful balancing your table and counter customers. Counter customers should still come first, though. Extend the patience of your tables with those Carol Singers!
Fresh is the Best! – Deliver items before they go bad.
Today presents a unique challenge in that food-items will go bad – and quickly at that! As soon as a food item has been placed on your tray, the meter in the upper right corner will begin to unwind. You have approximately 8 seconds to serve the item to the customer, or else you will fail today’s challenge. The following is a list of perishable items:
- All Desserts
- Ham and/or Duck
- Hot Tea
- Iced Tea and/or Chocolate Milk
Keep In-A-Row combos with multiple customers and food items to a minimum. Always start by preparing non-perishable items – these can remain on your tray indefinitely. However, as soon as the food is picked up, the timer will start. You will need to deliver it to the customer within 8 seconds, and gathering any other food will not refill the timer. If customers order Ham or Duck platters, it’s best to serve these individually. The same goes for Iced Tea and/or Hot Chocolate.
Tip! If you’re too short on time, quickly click on the item on your tray to remove it. Removing the perishable item will immediately reset your timer.
Carl’s 3rd Party – Find all the mice!
Carl and all his friends have shown up for the final challenge. Locate 30 mice before the end of the day to complete this challenge. Mice will pop up frequently, and often multiple at a time. They also tend to show up in the same locations. Refer to the Mouse Locations section below for an image showing these locations.
Congratulations! You’ve completed all Challenges for Delicious – Emily’s Christmas Carol!
