~ Flavor Text
The eatery is a medium sized building mainly used to process raw foods into prepared meals for your Nuggets. It has an average build time from its resource requirements and build points, and also requires water to function. The Cooking Perk must be researched before this building becomes available.
Once constructed, the eatery can immediately support the employment of one nugget as a Cook. Another spot can be unlocked later in the future.
When raw food is brought to the eatery, it can no longer be consumed by nuggets. It will stay in the eatery until a cook is able to process it. One unit of raw food will produce one unit of prepared food, which will be shown on the bottom status bar next to the green apple icon.
The eatery will also generate fresh drinking water, much like the Well. Although, water provided by the eatery will satisfy a nugget's thirst by 100%.
Clicking on the eatery will open its information panel which includes:
- Currently hired nuggets.
- Nuggets using the eatery to eat or drink.
- Amount of raw foods stored in the eatery.
- Amount of prepared meals ready to be eaten.
- Amount of drinks ready to be consumed.
- The current durability of the eatery itself.
- The power and water requirement meters.
