Part ofRandom encounter

The Café of Broken Dreams[1] is a special encounter in Fallout 2. It's a small diner out in the middle of the Wasteland containing all the different Vault Dweller models, including ones that couldn't be played; for example as a black male or a girl with orange hair for the Vault Dweller.

Also, Tandi and Set from Fallout show up and spout love for the Dweller or, in Set's case, gibberish about dirt. As a special treat, Dogmeat of Fallout fame can be found here.

The cafe is a copy of Maltese Falcon in the Hub of Fallout.

Behind the scenes

  • The Café of Broken Dreams is most likely a reference to Harlan Ellison's "Boulevard of Broken Dreams", where the main character sees dead people from his past.


  1. Fallout 2 Official Strategies & Secrets p.117: "The Café of Broken Dreams
    This café, shown in Figure 6.3, is home to a host of near heroes, almost rans, and might have beens-all of whom have seen their best days pass them by. One of them may be a friend of yours from times long past. Chatting over a steamin' hot cup of joe is a great way to remember the good ol' days."
