Joy cafe text

Joy Café in Text mode.

Joy Café is unlocked through normal game play when a player reaches level 17. 

Players can 'pay to play' Joy Café from level 16 onwards, where they can choose to pay with crystals (which will need to be bought with real money) to unlock the Picture early, rather than waiting until they reach level 17 and unlock it for free through normal game play. The opening levels for Joy Café, previously levels 13 (for 'pay to play') and 15, were changed with the Family Mystery Update (v1.31.3100).

From the Diary:

"I restored the next picture from Richard's collection. It's an image of the 'Joy Café' in Brazil. I'm really starting to like this. What other job gives you the chance to travel all over the world instantly?"
