## Gameplay ##
You just opened up a coffee shop in your local penguin village. Serve customers by playing minigames to fulfill their orders. If your lines get too long or you run out of space to store your food, you'll lose!

## How to Play ##
### Game ###
Take your customers' orders by going to the cashier's counter. As customers arrive, press Q to take the order of the first person in line. They will move to the right to wait for their food. If you've already made what they ordered, they'll take what's on the counter.

Fill your customers' orders by using the workstations that correspond to their desire. The bar on the right hand side of the screen shows your customers' orders. (You do not have to fulfill them in order). If you have downtime you can always prepare some orders preemptively by using the workstations.

Don't let any of your lines get too long, and don't store too much food on your counter, that's gotta be a health code violation.

#### How to toast pastries: ####
When you use an empty toaster, you'll place a pastry and start the timer. Wait until it's finished.

Once it's finished, simply use the workstation again.

### Controls ###
+ 1 - Prepare Water
+ 2 - Prepare Coffee
+ 3 - Prepare Tea
+ 4 - Toast pastry - Use the workstation once to put a pastry in the toaster, and use it again when the timer has completed to serve.
+ A/D - Move Left and Right (in minigames)
+ Q - Take Order (If customers are present)
+ Space - Used for Coffee minigame

Hehe, at first the controls are very confusing but after a little bit of practice I found myself having some fun. Very cute.

I liked it!
It gets a little buggy sometimes and the coffee game is waaaay too hard (at least for me), but it was a fun experience!

Nice game.

Controls maybe a little confused. It's not very typycal to use numbers for this kind of games.. But well, when you cath them, the game really works.

Good job.

Loved it! It was a bit weird to get used to controls but after that it was very fun. My best run was 5:50. Noot noot!

Loved the minigame concept. I am terrible at the #2 game and when I got antsy and pressed 2 again before it took me back to the main screen the game would freeze up.

Well, uh, it's a nice start, the mini-games seemed a little rough and it's sorta hard to tell what goes with what visually. Music seemed calming though which is good for games like this.

Really fun game!
Controls are a bit weird to get at first, but you get used to it quite fast. I just found a little bit hard to notice when the line was getting too big, because looking at the tiny number at the corner of the screen can be a bit difficult when trying to prepare all the stuff. Maybe adding a sound cue would help. But overall, great game and really fun to play!

The controls were confusing at first, but once I checked the LD description and figured out how to play, that was pretty fun and cute! Good work, I spend a good time brewing coffee and throwing tea satchels in cups!
