Smiles are required to reach the top of the chef’s league. When you reach a new chef league, you will receive a special chest, which contains rewards like gems.

For example, if a customer orders a cup of coffee and a pancake dish together, quickly tap on the coffee mug to serve it to him. His happiness bar will shoot up a bit. Do this for others customers with multiple dish orders until each customer has only one order left. You can also use cookies to increase happiness bar and then fulfill the order to get more smiles. Also make sure you keep the griddle engaged and plates full with pancakes. Serve customers the right dishes (check the color of the jellies and toppings in their orders) to earn coins and smiles.

Pay Attention to a Levels Goal 

Each level has a certain goal. It could be a timed level (timer icon), a level where you will have to earn a certain number of coins or a level that requires to serve all orders without losing a customer.  

Check level goals
Check Goal icons before tapping on the “Play” button.

For example: In level 15, you will have to collect 320 coins, but at the same time make sure that you don’t burn pancakes on the griddle. If you burn one, it’s game over.  

Make sure you get your priorities right when you complete a goal. For timed level, you shouldn’t care about gaining bonus smiles and the only focus should be to earn the required number of coins or serve required number of guests before the timer runs out. You will have to keep your stoves engaged soon after serving customers.  

In certain levels, you will have to collect “likes” (thumbs up icon). Make sure you serve a dish to a customer before the green happiness meter moves below the thumbs up icon on it.   

In levels where you can’t lose a customer, make sure that their happiness meter stays in the green. A customer leaves when the meter reaches the red zone and is empty.  

Use grandma’s cookies on the top-left corner of the screen to keep their happiness levels high so that no customer leaves.  

How to get Combos 

You can pull off combos in a level when you serve two or more cooked pancake dishes to your customers at the same time.  

Cook pancakes on the griddle, add toppings, jellies as per customer demands and then quickly tap on 2 or more dishes to serve customers and achieve combos. The higher the combo the greater the reward, which means you will get more coins than normal when you get a combo. 

Level Up Kichen Items and Ingredients  

In SpongeBob Krusty Cook Off, customers will keep arriving and ordering multiple dishes. Cooking pancakes for them can be very difficult if you have limited cooking slots in your kitchen appliances.

Kitchen Items

When you unlock a new restaurant, the recipes will change and there will be different dishes instead of pancakes. Make sure you tap on each kitchen item to know the benefit of upgrading that items. Also, keep in mind that ingredient upgrades will always increase the price of the dish, whereas kitchen appliance upgrades will decrease time and/or add extra slot for cooking more food.
