The Roost is a café that first appears in Animal Crossing: Wild World. In Wild World and City Folk, it is located in the basement of the museum, while in New Leaf it is a public works project. Operated by Brewster, it serves coffee that the player can purchase and drink twice per day for 200 Bells. Prior to New Leaf, it is also the venue where K.K. Slider performs every Saturday night. Additionally, various characters can be seen at the bar in the café each day.

Appearances[edit]

In Wild World[edit]

The Roost in Wild World.

In Animal Crossing: Wild World, The Roost appears in the basement of the museum. The player can purchase a cup of coffee from Brewster twice per day: once in the morning and once in the evening. While initially reserved, Brewster will open up to the player more if they purchase coffee over a consecutive period of days.

K.K. Slider appears on stage at The Roost on Saturday nights from 7:30 PM to 12:00 AM. Beginning at 8 PM, the player can watch him perform, either by requesting a song or letting him choose a song. After the performance, K.K. will give the player an aircheck of the song.

Special visitors[edit]

Various characters can be seen at the bar in The Roost at certain times on certain days.

In City Folk[edit]

A player's stored Gyroids at The Roost in City Folk.

In Animal Crossing: City Folk, like in Wild World, The Roost appears in the basement of the museum, and purchasing coffee is identical to the previous game. New to City Folk is the option to have Brewster store the player's Gyroids, which is unlocked the day after the player drinks their seventh cup of hot coffee; coffee left to cool does not count toward this. Additionally, on Valentine's Day Brewster serves hot chocolate instead of coffee. The Roost's layout is also slightly different; it is slightly deeper, a plant is added at the bottom-right, and another table and two chairs are added at the bottom-left.

Like in Wild World, K.K. Slider appears on stage at The Roost on Saturday nights, and the player can watch him perform by either by requesting a song or letting him choose a song. New options include the ability for the player to tell K.K. their mood ("Good!", "Grumpy...", "Lazy", "A little sad", or "It's hard to say"), after which he will play a song based on the selection. Additionally, the player can request encores after the initial performance, though only one aircheck can be obtained each week.

Special visitors[edit]

Like in Wild World, special characters can appear at The Roost, though now villagers from the player's town can as well.

In New Leaf[edit]

Blathers suggests building a café

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, The Roost is now a public works project and standalone building, instead of being located in museum. In order to unlock the café as a public works project, the player must have already constructed the Museum Shop and have donated at least fifty items to the museum. After the shop has been open at least seven days, Blathers may be found thinking in the Museum. When the player speaks to him, he will add the Roost café to the town's list of public works projects at the cost of 298,000 Bells.

The player can buy a cup of coffee for 200 Bells; after drinking four cups, the player is given the option of getting coffee to go. Buying coffee to go from the right side of the bar counts as the player's one purchasable cup per day. Special characters and villagers will sometimes be found in the café as in previous games, but in New Leaf, the player may have villagers visit from another town.

Special visitors[edit]

At certain times during the day, special characters will appear at the café. The following table shows who will appear and at what time.

Part-time job[edit]

A player serving coffee to Quillson.

At the café, the player can get a part-time job after having seven cups of coffee. The player may work only from 11 AM to 11 PM, when no events are taking place in town. On the job, the player will have a random selection of four villagers, from their town or another, come and get coffee. Each animal has a combination of the three ingredients — coffee beans, milk, and sugar — that they like best. If the player satisfies the customers, coffee beans will be awarded by Brewster. As the player continues to keep customers happy, Brewster will reward the player with café-style furniture items, including four different special Brewster-themed Gyroids.

If the player is wearing a Wet Suit or a Mii Mask, it will not be removed, with the exception of working for the first time, where the player's Wet Suit will be removed.

Coffee preferences[edit]
Main article: The Roost/Coffee preferences

Every special character and villager has a favorite combination of coffee beans, milk, and sugar. There are four different options for each category: coffee beans (Blend, Blue Mountain, Kilimanjaro, and Mocha), milk (none, a little, the regular amount, and lots), and sugar (none, one spoonful, two spoonfuls, and three spoonfuls).

Coffee beans[edit]
Main article: Coffee bean

Every time the player works, Brewster will reward the player with coffee beans, which can be sold for Bells or given to villagers to boost their friendship with the player. The three types of beans are Normal (500 Bells), Good (1,000 Bells), and Superb Coffee Beans (2,000 Bells).

Furniture rewards[edit]

In Gekijōban Doubutsu no Mori[edit]

The Roost in Gekijōban Doubutsu no Mori.

The Roost makes a minor appearance in 🎬 Gekijōban Doubutsu no Mori and is based on its appearance in Animal Crossing: Wild World. The café is first seen when Ai visits The Roost to look for Apollo. While she is there, she meets Cesar and Cyrano, who are drinking coffee at the table. Later, after Margie moves away from Animal Village, Ai, who is grieving Margie's moving, returns to The Roost and orders a coffee; she is consoled by Whitney.
