This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Tired of all that massive restaurants on every lot to feed your sims?
Ever wanted to have some smaller and less crowdy place for it?
you think its a kinda magic on the pics? I can tell you no.
This is just an invisible recolor of BV Tropico and Forest food stands.
As you see sims still can order food and eat talking with each other.
Now you can customize a cafeteria the way you like with any kitchen islands, barstools (no dining chairs) and decorations.
(I put a decor on a surface using counter OMSP)
You can arrange it with a drinks bar or coffee bar.

Sorry I cannot add or change the food menu available to order. I'm bad in coding.
(I guess that would be great if someone make this chief to be able to cook all restaurant food)

1. Put a stand, make in invisible with my recolor (just a stove remained as it should be)
2. Delete original barstools, enter moveobjects on cheat and place some 4 kitchen islands in a needed row.
3. Place some four barstools. Enlight and decorate your cafeteria.
that is all!

PS I did not include a FarEast stand recolor as its menu is too specific not versatile.
Fridge on the pic is just for deco (sims cannot reach it)

Another brilliant idea! Thanks.

I've never been married, but I tell people I'm divorced so they won't think something is wrong with me.

Amazing, just what I've been looking for. I was so disappointed that there wasn't any 'normal' food booth for neighbourhood community lots

Awesome! Thanks alot!...One question. How did you edit a BV object without an updated SimPE? I haven't been able to use it for game objects since H&M came out.

Pass the ribbon around if you know someone that has survived, died, or is living with cancer.

Glad you like it.

Ailias, you make such USEFUL stuff! Thanks so much for this.

I have almost everything you've made -- thank you!

I made some mods for The Sims 1 -- yes, The Sims ONE :-) -- which you can find at

I love this... I HOPE you will reconsider and do the asian booth for our little asian shopping centers and things, but if not I am certainly using these!

I cannot seem to get this to work. When I put your hacked/semi-invisible food stand over the Maxis original it just will not fit....I tried from different angles and the game will not let me do that...give me a hint about what I must be doing wrong...

When you say make it invisible, do you mean put your stand on top of the Maxis stand (which I am trying to do unsuccessfully) or is this a step I don't understand?

You just had to make this after I uninstalled BV, didn't you, lol!

Seriously, it's really cute.

Thanks Alias, This is just what my sims needed for their restaurant (you can set prices of the stands with OFB, you can't be the chef though.) Just 1 thing to tell you Alias, and everyone else, the chefs are stuck once walls are placed around the food stands and they can't get out.

You can also change their outfits using the insimenator as well.

This is just what I was looking for, and it works wonderfully. The other item I was looking for was an invisible espresso stand, which I see you have also made. Great work!

Thx for this great job - i´ve it in my game -
but now,i´ve create a community-lot, a bakery and the keeper have stand this invisible Cafeteria on his lot - the problem we have, the keeper leave the lot and go back at home, the Cook will get to his home too and won´t go,he´s now a member of the keepers family. Also the cook will come as visitor on other lots.This brake the game.He will also not die, we can nothing do as delete the cook with "boolProp testingCheatsEnabled true" ->"forceError",but he come sometime back - how he likes it! What´s the error? Sorry for my terrible english - hope you understand me anyway

Great idea, Ailias!! I like to have these stands in community lots so my sims can get a bite to eat, now I can make them blend with the decor of the lot!

I thought about this but I think Macdonalds stand looks so real - I would not change that. It's so easy to create little MacDonalds cafe.

Currently playing Sims 4 full collection. (and fixing my mods folder)
