Find Brewster in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Here's how to get Brewster to open a cafe on your island in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ 2.0 update adds the ability to get Brewster’s cafe as an extra wing of the museum. Unfortunately Brewster won’t just rock up in the museum following the update – you’re going to need to go get him first. Below, we’ll walk you through how to find Brewster in Animal Crossing: New Horizons so you can open the cafe.

To start your journey to find Brewster in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, head to the museum and speak with Blathers. Provided you have at least a 3-Star island and have already opened the art wing, he should talk with you about his plan to open a cafe. Blathers will ask you to find Brewster and give you a photo of him. 

Next, you need to speak with Kapp’n, who’ll be sitting on a boat on your pier. Kapp’n can take you on a mysterious island tour once per day if you pay him 1,000 Nook Miles. If you have already gone on a Kapp’n tour today, you’ll need to wait until tomorrow.

Ask Kapp’n to take you on a tour, then search the island for Brewster. He should be bumbling around in a safari hat, and will be quite distinctive thanks to his glasses and moustache. Speak with Brewster and he’ll talk you through how to grow Gyroids, even giving you a Gyroid Fragment to start with. Tell him that Blathers sent you, and he’ll give you a message in return.

Return to your island and speak with Blathers, who’ll confirm that Brewster is coming. Your Museum will be closed the next day to make preparations for Brewster’s arrival. Wait a couple of days, and the cafe is yours to explore!
