Cranky's Hut is where Cranky Kong resides in the Game Boy Advance remake of Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. There is a Cranky's Hut located in every area of Crocodile Isle except The Flying Krock. It is the successor of the Monkey Museum from the original version. In his hut, Cranky sells advice in exchange for Banana Coins (although some advice is free). It also hosts an extra minigame, Expresso Racing. Cranky keeps his pet, Expresso, caged up in his hut. With Golden Feathers, Diddy and Dixie Kong can enhance Expresso's stats for Expresso Racing.
Compared to the Monkey Museum, Cranky's Hut has only a few unique objects in the background, and there are no cameo appearances from other video game franchises. The "DK" logo is hidden to the side, and the Rare logo is on top of Expresso's cage. A racing flag is hung at the entrance, and a certificate with a red ribbon hangs is hung to the right of the racing flag. There are four tires, three of which have a few eggs on them, and one is leaning against Expresso's cage. A cage with a small Winky is in the center of the room. A silver bucket is next to the Winky's cage. At the very front, to the left, is a barrel with some Banana Bunches on it.
Trophies that are won from Expresso Racing sit on the shelves of Cranky's Hut. 1st place trophies are gold, 2nd place trophies are silver, and 3rd place trophies are bronze.
