Cooking Tale features special customers that boost your gameplay in different ways. Some of the special customers ease the levels while some of them make it harder to pass. Except for Rob and the Newlyweds, all special customers must be served before their patience drops to 2 hearts. All positive traited customers must be served before their patience drops to 2 hearts or you will not get the boosts they offer. If you don't serve to customers with negative traits before their patience drops to 2 hearts, they execute negative boosters that make the level harder.
