15 Coffee House Menu Designs

Coffee houses or coffee shops have been around since the 9th century. They were first introduced in Africa but started to gain popularity in England in the 18th century. These days, coffee shops can be found in every corner of the globe.

Coffee house menus are extensions of the themes or concepts used by the coffee house. Similar to restaurant menus, a level of uniformity should be seen throughout the designs in both the coffee house’s interior and exterior.

Here are some attractive coffee house designs you can use for your own establishment. Watch your customers arrive in droves not only for the freshly roasted coffee, but for the menu designs as well.

Menus for coffee houses don’t need to be as large as restaurant menus. They can be as small as these rack card designs. Since they are smaller in size and can fit in any pocket, edit the text to state only the important details. Or better yet, use one rack card for each item in your menu and compile them all together when you present them to customers.

This is the perfect template to use for your coffee house, just in time for the autumn season. This template uses an image of a maple leaf which has turned into its autumn color.

Tips when using coffee house menu designs

Before you make any purchase for a coffee house blank menu design or template, follow these simple tips so you get the most out of your purchase as well eventually increase your income for your coffee house. These tips don’t only apply to coffee houses, but to restaurants and other food shops as well.

Use colors that resemble coffee

Brown and black for the coffee and white for the cream—your coffee house menu should revolve around these three colors although it is not mandatory. Even if you use other colors, at least two of the three mentioned colors should be found in your menu (either in the text, background, or border). Coffee doesn’t use a variety of colors unless you count frappuccino and other blended drinks that use multiple ingredients. You can create and even purchase very attractive templates with a brown, black, and white color scheme.

Minimize the use of text

As seen in other restaurant designs such as invitations, business cards, and flyers, the text should be minimal and used sparingly if necessary. Menus should follow suit, so you should only use text mostly for the dishes being served and their corresponding prices. The problem with some restaurants and even coffee houses are that they add too much text, especially when describing each dish in the menu. The result is a menu that is written like a novel or short story. Even avid book readers will want to avoid menu designs filled with text, so keep things minimal.

Utilize food photography

If the use of text is limited in restaurant or coffee shops, then you might ask yourself what you should do next to make your watercolor menu design more attractive. The simple answer is incorporating food photography. Mesmerize your customers and transport them to your coffee world by adding real photos of coffee and other caffeine drinks.

Customers will surely prefer looking at images of coffee rather than reading about them. Images will also make it easier for customers to place their orders.

Purchase digital menu templates

Digital templates such as menus, invitations, flyers, and business cards should be preferred over physical templates. Hundreds of digital templates can be found in different online graphic design shops like Best Templates, Creative Market, Zazzle, Etsy, Stock Layouts, Graphic River, and Theme Forest. The main problem of physical handmade templates compared to digital menu templates is the delivery time. When you order digital templates, expect your product to be delivered to you within a few days.

If you ordered physical templates from another country, you can never predict when your package will arrive as it may take a few days to a few weeks. If you ordered from another country, expect numerous couriers to handle your package and also expect the product to have a few scratches or dents due to the courier handling. So go for digital storyboard templates since your options would be limitless.

Want to make a splash in the coffee business? Then go ahead and purchase these coffee menu designs. Your coffee house will be filled with the beautiful aroma of coffee and the sound of customers coming in to place their orders.
