Good solution for my website

I have a small cafe with homemade chocolates and cakes. WordPress, plugins and themes are free, I pay for hosting only. My business and hobby is online now.

Clean and Easy to Use

Easy to use plugin, looks good with my theme (Esplanade). A “duplicate item” button would be nice, as I have a lot of items that only need to be tweaked slightly from another. I also found it frustrating that I’m not able to change the format/layout of the menu and item pages – a more experience use could probably do more here. I like this plugin and would recommend it.

good work

I like the menu layout and structure, did not notice any bugs yet. I would also like to see the tags sortable so if the tag is organic for example i can click it and find all organic items. anyways, good job!

It shows good potential

I’m currently building a pizza takeway site and tried this with a few other plugins. It has everything you need to run a restaurant menu but I couldn’t use it as I wanted to incorporate a buy/order button to it. In your next upgrade please consider adding the WooCommerce shortcode support. Keep up the good work!
