Choose a laconic design
The design of your template should match the design of your restaurant. If the interior of your place is minimalistic, then your website is better to underline this. Using Weblium, you can:● add your company’s logo;● use a color palette and fonts that match your restaurant or cafe; moreover, they are applied to the whole website;● change blocks and elements by adding a background, animation, and paddings.
Fill your website with content
Now it's time to turn the template into a unique website by replacing all content with your texts. If necessary, add any additional pages or sections. For sure, don’t forget about the visual part. Stylish photos will make a good impression on visitors.
Online chat, pop-ups, feedback forms, and table reservations will help improve communication between the visitor and you. It is possible to change the content of both forms and pop-ups completely.
Preview and publish

But we also recommend sending the link to several friends and let them read the texts, click on the buttons, fill out the feedback form. Thus, you will get a second opinion.
Promote the website when it is finished

This is a must-have page for the cafe and restaurant website. You can download the menu in the image format or create your own using ready-made blocks. Add dishes, prices, descriptions, and here you are! So the visitor will immediately understand the price range, get acquainted with the dishes and their composition.
Use this page to invite the customer to book a table directly from the website. Booking tools such as YCLIENTS widgets or contact forms within the builder allow visitors to choose the time, day, and number of seats. You can connect a notification of a new reservation by mail or Telegram messenger to quickly contact the customer.
Not every visitor can quickly navigate and find your place. This issue can be solved by adding a Google map to your website and providing an address there. You can also add a description to explain how to get to your cafe or restaurant. Thus, even a person from another city can find you.
