Cook, Serve, Delicious! (CSD!) is a restaurant in Cook, Serve, Delicious!, Cook, Serve, Delicious! 2!! and Cook, Serve, Delicious! 3?!.

This restaurant is the only one the player can customize by selecting one of the several different modes, choosing the menu, or designing the interior.


The player can select one of the four modes for a shift in this restaurant:

  • Classic Mode plays like the original Cook, Serve, Delicious!. It factors in the boosters and detractors of each item, affecting the daily buzz, prices, chores, and customer patience. All active boosters and detractors can be seen in the 'View Buzz' tab in the restaurant menu. This mode also allows the player to increase or decrease the number of prep and holding stations.
  • Standard mode does not factor in the boosters and detractors, allowing the player to create any menu they want. This mode also allows the player to increase or decrease active buzz and the number of prep and holding stations.
  • Stress mode raises buzz to 150%, prep station count to 14, and holding station count to 8.
  • Zen mode removes all Rush Hours and allows the player to customize active buzz and the number of prep and holding stations. It also gives the player an option to toggle infinite customer patience.

The buzz earned or lost in any mode (except Stress) by the end of a day affects the base buzz for the following day. It also raises or lowers the maximum buzz the player can set in Standard and Zen modes.
