Jo's Dream: Organic Coffee
I like the graphics, but I would have preferred something more, especially some more.

Fun, but not really a challenge yet
I've only played the first hour on this, and have just bought it.
I found it weird that there was no one in the shop at first, to serve customers. But you still serve them. You can upgrade to get a waiter, but then you have to wait to upgrade him in order for him to work! But once upgraded, he works automatically.
I am playing the game un-timed, as I prefer that, and once I have completed the game, I may do it timed.
The game is quite good, as I don't drink coffee, so I've had to learn all the different coffee styles.
The game, so far, is a nice pace. I am just waiting to get another waiter/ess, but you have to get 3 stars for that and it seems to be taking ages.
What I also like, so far anyway, is that the customers don't get angry within 0.5secs of placing an order.
The game is okay, but could be improved;
ie you can't click on more than one thing at once, so you can't pick up some ice-cream and a croissant, you have to get them separately.
The waiter can be slow, especially at first.
The game does take some time to build.

OK but quite boring
This game was OK but overall quite boring after a while.
Good music, good graphics, funny characters.
2 modes: timed and relaxed.
There isn't much to do aside from playing the same scenario over and over again, win points, buy new material or furniture, then start over.

It was OK
There were many things I liked about this game, but the dislikes just kept pushing me over the edge; the finicky exact clicking, the inability to click through waiters or guests to get at things, and the confusion over how the Waitress worked. I bought it - because there have been so few good time management games - so whilst waiting for another one of those, this will have to do. I liked the bugless graphics, the upgrades and idea of upgrading the outside of the store as well as the inside.

Not so great
Items too close together to click; can't carry more than one item; no noticable bonus for fast work.Overall color scheme made it visually unappealing. not a buy

Cute, but slow!
I love TM games and have just about every one of them. This is like Flo's Diner, but a LOT s.l.o.w.e.r. It's a cute twist on the theme, really like having options with the music. I played the full hour for something new to do, but really wish the customers didn't move so slow...that takes the challenge out of it completely. Fun for passing time, though.

Talk about "cartoonish" this game was just that. This game is not perfected, when you picked up the coffee, pastry or ice cream if you didn't click the "right spot" by the customer it would go back what a pain-in-the-neck! I played the full hour but I would not play this game again. Sorry, but this was not my "cup of coffee". But for those that like this type of game with this type of graphics give it a try.

Not a game that I'd come back to play over and over. It's okay for a diehard TM player. Yes, the cursor definitely needs help! Finished the full version in one day. I've been desperate enough to play a new TM game, so it was good enough for a brief entertainment.
Hired workers move way too slowly. Mouse movement is a lot faster, so I ended up serving myself. Workers get in your way (i.e., in front of ice, coffee machines, etc.), so there was a bit of confusion.

Could have been more challenging
As far as graphics, the game is great. However, the time management part of it just isn't that challenging. There isn't a way to get a harder challenge, and once you've finished all the smaller goals, the only goal left is to play through a set number of game days. Then, that's it- game over. I burned through this one in two evenings. Just not that challenging.

I love tm games but...
this one was awful to me. I bought this right off instead of testing it. First, because of the reviews and second, because I was wanted a new tm game so badly. Mistake!
Instead of keeping the bubble telling you what the customer wants, you have to keep clicking the customer to find out what it was, if you can't remember. I don't like this feature at all. It's such an aggravation to me that I would not have bought this game on that basis.
Otherwise, it operates just like any other tm game.
Another note: the merchandise you are selling are small, making them harder to click on quickly.
I've never written a negative review. On this one, I felt I must. That order bubble thing, for me, is a definite no go.
Thank you for reading. Happy gaming! :)
