The Mess Hall is a gameplay element in Fire Emblem Fates.


The Mess Hall is a feature in the My Castle that allows players to cook meals for their units. Cooking is used by the player to feed food resources to units, giving them stat boosts for the duration of one battle and is done at the Mess Hall building in the player's castle. The player can select either one or two food resources, depending on the level of the Mess Hall, to be cooked into a meal by the character serving as the chef. Each ingredient will provide a boost of one point to one stat and the character serving as chef will add a "flair" to the meal, providing additional boosts, sometimes to specific units in the army. The meal will be fed to one half of the units in the player's army, providing each unit with the stat bonuses corresponding to the ingredients and flair of the meal. If the Mess Hall is upgraded to Level 3, the meal will instead be fed to everyone in the player's army.


The ingredients used in cooking are food items collected at Gathering Spots, daily interactable areas where resources can be obtained. Food can be acquired at Gathering Spots built by the player in their own castle or at Gathering Spots in other players' castles when visiting them. Food items can also be given to the player as random items by characters in the player's castle, can be won as prizes at the Lottery Shop, and can be won from betting at an Arena.

Flair is an additional stat boost that is added to the meal after being cooked. The character serving as chef has the ability to add a number of different flair effects to a meal, some depending on the character. One flair is randomly added to the meal. Some flairs only affect certain units such as female or Nohrian units.
