A common trait among most businesses these days is to have a website. Not only does it serve as a way of marketing and advertising but it also allows for practical information to be displayed as well such as menus, prices and directions.
Even though there are an abundance of themes that are aimed at restaurants there are theme developers which have created WordPress themes for café’s and eateries in general.
However, what should a good café WordPress theme have?
The themes that we have picked out below promote the very best features of a food and drink focused WordPress theme.
This includes a clean design so that the visitors’ eye is focused on the content and not on an elaborate and complicated design. Indeed, this is a key facet of many WordPress themes and displaying content intertwined with some images with keeping the basic design minimal is important.
With café themes in particular light colors are preferred and designs that leave a significant amount of space in between content work best. When someone visits a restaurant or café site then they want information fast and the theme has to provide this.
Finally any WordPress theme that is aimed at customers of café’s, baristas, fast food outlets or restaurants should be responsive.
While it is not an integral part of the theme it is assumed that many people will look for information on café’s on the move and usually this means with a smartphone or tablet device. A responsive ready theme provides a much better layout for the mobile user although it is not absolutely necessary by any means.
The themes that we have chosen in the list below are a usual mix of free and premium themes and we have provided links to any available demos and the theme itself.
