5 Tips for Designing a More Effective Menu for Your Restaurant or Café

Christopher Aaron - Friday, April 17, 2015

Your restaurant’s menu can drive sales, clearly communicate your brand and give customers an idea of which dish will give them the best experience. Despite these important characteristics, menu design is an oft overlooked aspect of restaurants.

Many restaurants owners stick to a basic menu design, listing appetizers, mains and optional extras such as drinks and desserts on a plain sheet of paper using a simple typeface and little or no extra design elements.

While a simple menu has its own range of benefits, it’s often far more effective for a restaurant or café to use a menu that’s designed from the ground up to lead people towards top-selling dishes, entrees, drinks, desserts and other items.

From the fonts you use in your menu design to elements such as lines, text boxes or photos, a wide range of design elements can have a significant effect on the way that customers perceive and react to your menu.

This can drive extra orders and additional revenue for your restaurant, making it an important priority. In this guide, we’ll share five tips that you can use to design and create a more effective, profitable menu for your restaurant or café. Read More
