With a breezy pace and a comically weird story, Little Dragons Cafe is a unique take on farming sims. While I loved cooking meals, establishing my inn, and the anxiety-free pace, its management mechanics have been watered down just a bit too much and result in stakes so low that much of it becomes meaningless. Without making important decisions or a wealth of more interesting side-quests to capture my attention, I eventually ended up bored by the repetitive tasks.

Little Dragons Café is a tedious, charmless bore that plods along at an unforgivably slow pace

Little Dragons Cafe's charming world and cafe management are enjoyable, but it's held back by significant pacing issues.

Little Dragons Café is the type of game I walk away from feeling more hopeful in the world. Each chapter ends on such an earnest note that it raises my spirits. Sure, it doesn't have the deepest mechanics, and it's not the most polished title I'll play this year. But it has a soul and a kind heart that uplifts the basic gameplay to a place that makes Little Dragons Café an easy recommendation to anyone looking for a soupcon of positivity in their life.

There is almost nothing here to recommend.

Yasuhiro Wada shows his new creation with this easy game that everyone in the house can afford to play. We expected much more from the Harvest Moon and Rune Factory creator, and at least we wanted something more of management in a game that is supposed to let us manage our own cafe. But we have a dragon.

This feels like a golden age 3DS game. I hope patches address the Switch version because portable play definitely works best for these kinds of games. The PS4 version based on our time with it is a lot better in terms of visuals, performance, and load times

Little Dragon's Café is a causal sim/exploration game which is simply overflowing with charm. It's easy to get drawn in by the game's forgiving gameplay, great music, heartwarming stories, and dramatic day-night changes, and hard to put down, given all there is to do post-game. While its sim mechanics aren't especially deep, LDC provides a delightful way to escape the woes of the real world alongside your own, adorable pet dragon.

Would I recommend you buy Little Dragons Café for a child at its current price point? Absolutely not. There is plenty of content and it's a decent game, but there are a lot of other games that are on-par with this one that are selling for less than half the price. Until the price comes down, I can't in good conscience recommend that you buy it, and that's a shame.
