Main Walkthrough

The owner of Startlet Town's taco truck, Emma is a staple townie for anyone who doesn't want to cook for themselves. Her truck is a popular visit for those residents who often visit the north side of town, particularly the two blacksmiths that live nearby. Emma is married to Pippa, though you won't find them together all that often until the evening. (Emma is a bit of a workaholic.)

Emma's birthday is on the 13th of Summer. You cannot romance her.

Emma's Schedule

Emma spends the vast majority of her days working at the taco truck, located in the north of Starlet Town, near the Blacksmith. If you're looking to befriend her, you can check out the truck to hand over gifts or make small talk. The primary exception is on rainy days, where Emma will spend most of her time at home instead, aside from a quick trip over to the south end of the lake.
  • Emma usually begins her days at the taco truck around 9:00, and will stay there for the vast majority of the day. If you can't find Emma at the taco truck after she leaves home there's a good chance that she's at Sam's General Store, and she'll head to the truck once she's done, opening at 14:30.
  • Emma spends basically all afternoon working, and will stay at the taco truck well into the evening. How long she stays at the taco truck depends on the day, though if she visited Sam's General Store during the day Emma will head home before dark. On Saturdays she'll go to the lake with Dippa to watch them paint, and leave the truck closed. She'll head home well before dark, however, while Dippa stays by the lake a while longer. On Sundays she'll go to the lake on her own.
  • When Emma's working she often doesn't go home until dark, though even on her days off she won't spend any time reveling in the outdoors. If you haven't caught Emma by the time she's heading home on a work day you'll probably have to wait until the next day. (On one Sunday I had Emma go all the way to the Lookout and stay there all night, though I suspect that's an abnormality.)
In other words, if you want to speak to Emma, you should check the taco truck during the day. It's your safest bet for tracking her down.

  • At two hearts Emma will send you the recipe for Fish Tacos.

Likes and Dislikes

Emma has a love of non-alcoholic drinks, and the easiest way to win her heart is to buy her a Coffee from Raja's Coffee Corner, near Fishensips. You can also make your own with Coffee Beans and a Keg. Unsurprisingly Emma likes Tacos, though Coffee is virtually always going to be the easiest gift to procure for her.
