Bar Menus

“Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name” – your bar patrons want you to know their name, but they also want to know the names of their favorite food and drink orders.  As someone who sees that “our troubles are all the same,” empathize with them by personalizing a friendly new bar menu that helps them “take a break from all [their] worries.” Begin with what’s always on tap, and a shout-out to seasonal offerings (Summer Shandy®, anyone?). Follow with your bottled brews, ciders, and malt beverages, and round your drink selections out with local favorites and original concoctions.  No social establishment menu is complete without a slate of classic and updated bar food options – signature sandwiches (traditional reubens, meatball subs, grilled cheese), ever-popular apps (mozzarella sticks, chicken wings, nachos, deep-fried anything), and flame-grilled burgers (the possibilities are endless).  MyCreativeShop’s online editor wants to walk alongside you because “making your way in the world today takes everything you’ve got” – we won’t leave you hanging!

BBQ Menus

Throw another prawn on the barbie – you’ll have a dining room full of hungry customers once you personalize your newest BBQ menu.  Barbecue is fun and maybe even a little sassy, so be sure to customize your chosen template with just the right blend – tangy and spicy if you’re a Memphis-style devotee, rich and sweet for those who lean towards KC-style.  Highlight your smoky starters, signature sides, and house-made sauces.  Show off your Diva Q®-worthy hearty sandwich offerings along with a host of meat-laden platters (for a group or just one, eat-in or takeaway). Complete your menu with racks of ribs, juicy steaks, and barky brisket.  With the assistance of our online editor, diners will be lining up outside your restaurant for a chance to be near the heavenly aroma of your BBQ pit!

Breakfast Menus

You could don your apron and wave your spatula in the air in a crazy game of charades to communicate orders with your morning diners, or you could spare everyone the mental exertion by customizing a bright-eyed breakfast menu that they can read for themselves.  Begin with your signature AM dishes, and include a section of the classics (eggs benedict, huevos rancheros, bacon & eggs, stacks of fluffy pancakes).  A build-your-own omelet section is always a hit – include a list of à la carte sides (bacon, sausage links, pancakes, hashbrowns, toast) and a DIY combo plate. MyCreativeShop’s online design editor is easy to use and lets you dominate in the kitchen, instead of making a fool out of yourself trying to act out “chilaquiles” in a busy diner – although that would be sure to go viral in no time!

Cafe Menus

When you operate a café (caffe, bistro, trattoria, brasserie) in a walkable city, an eye-catching menu posted in your window or on a sidewalk sign is your best tool for attracting diners.  For those who dwell in less-pedestrian locales, the menu in the window is still a must, but a PDF posted on your website is also a big draw.  Customize the ideal café menu for your situation – our online editor is easy-to-use, with no experience required. Begin with what your café is known for – sunny breakfasts, cozy soups, creative salads, or a variety of unique sandwiches.  Highlight your baked goods and pastries, along with your entire slate of beverage offerings.  Your guests will be enjoying a delicious espresso and flaky croissant as soon as they lay eyes on your new menu!

Catering Menus

Whether you cook out of your approved home kitchen or an established restaurant, an accessible, well-designed catering menu is essential to growing and expanding your catering business.  Use our online editor to completely personalize one of our many templates with your own unique style. Begin with a personal introduction to who you are and why you do what you do.  Follow with a list of your culinary mainstays – dishes priced by size (and number of people served) or person.  Offer an array of complete meals (entrée, sides, desserts, drinks) at a set price, and include the projected number of people each will feed.  Describe your creations in delicious detail – your calendar will be booked with office lunches, weddings, graduations, and holiday parties in no time!

Cocktail Menus

Turn every hour into Happy Hour with a brand-new cocktail menu that promises something for everyone!  MyCreativeShop’s online design editor gives you creative control – choose shaken, stirred, or “Bond, James Bond.”  Lay out your drink offerings, starting with your original signature creations and followed by your biggest-selling local favorites.  Include a section that lists well drink base prices and sizes (single, double).  Highlight your happy hour times and features, and, if you have the available space, upload professional photos of your yummiest cocktails.  Before you know it, you’ll be the place to go for first dates, after dinner drinks, end of the workday wind-downs, and even the occasional mid-week Margaritaville®-esque escape!

Coffee Shop Menus

Your coffee shop is more than just a place people hit up when they need an energy jolt – it’s somewhere friends go to build each other up, a safe location for a first date, and a source of productivity for homework-laden college students, remote employees, and writers of all kinds.  Cater to each of your customers with an all-inclusive, personally-designed menu that gives them just what they need.  Your baristas will be busy as bees crafting the variety of leaded and unleaded brews, lattes, teas, mochas, cappuccinos, and macchiatos you lay out on your menu.  Our online editor will have you invigorating your entire community before their coffee gets cold!

Dessert Menus

Empower your restaurant’s servers (and increase sales!) by customizing a dessert menu that they can bring to the table with them when the plates are pushed away and they ask that key question: “Did anyone save room for dessert?” Your personalized menu should be worthy of the tasty sweets on it – hire a professional food photographer to capture your creations on film and upload the pics to our online editor.  Help your guests to eat with their eyes before their selections even make it to the table.  Describe each dessert with tantalizing language that makes your pies, brownies, cakes, and other sweet treats irresistible to even the most rigid diet-devotee.  MyCreativeShop strives to make the design process easy-peasy, lemon bar-squeezy!

Diner Menus

Your diner will be filled to max capacity when you roll out your new, custom-designed and personalized diner menu. Use MyCreativeShop’s easy-as-your-pie-case online editor to turn one of our professionally-designed templates into the definitive guide to a vinyl- and Formica®-covered, chrome-trimmed culinary adventure!  Experiment with font size and style to make your most popular dishes stand out from the crowd. Highlight your soup selections, including the price for the ever-changing soup du jour (“Excuse me, Flo?”).  If you’re known for your better-than-mom’s meatloaf and homemade mashed potatoes, offer it as more than just a blue plate special. Before you know it, Guy Fieri will be knocking on your door to test-drive your “off the hook” Flavortown-worthy combos!

Dinner Party Menus

Friendships are established, built, and maintained by quality time spent together.  What better place to spend that time than around the dinner table?  Host a memorable and worthwhile gathering and personalize the perfect dinner party menu to suit the occasion.  Using MyCreativeShop’s online editor, choose a template style that fits your style and tastes.  Once you’ve selected the featured dishes (create your own plan or borrow from one of the many available in cyberspace), lay them out in order (appetizers/starters, salad, entrée, dessert, and drinks).  You can even get really fancy (if it fits your friend group) and design a fun or elegant tablescape to provide the ideal backdrop for your beautifully-designed and printed menu. Before your guests arrive, be sure to pick up some great talking points from the Dinner Party Download’s® Rico Gagliano and Brendan Francis Newnam!

Drink Menus

Take it from Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett, “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere.” Ensure that your establishment is ready for 5 o’clock-ers at any time of day by customizing a separate (but fully-loaded) drink menu that has something for everyone. Use your expertise and sales data to determine which drinks to highlight – if you mostly attract a beer-drinking crowd, your taps and bottled brews section should dominate, but if your drinkers are more Carrie Bradshaw than Norm and Cliff, focus on your wines and mixed drinks.  Either way, a separate drink menu takes up less space on the table and can be grouped into Beer, Wine, and Mixed/Specialty Drink offerings. When you utilize MyCreativeShop’s online editor, you can update and print a new drink menu for every season (or whenever you need to make a selection or pricing change).  Get started before Jimmy finds his lost shaker of salt!

Italian Restaurant Menus

Benvenuto al nostro ristorante! Make the patrons of your Italian restaurant feel right at home with a completely personalized and welcoming menu that takes them on a tour of Italian cuisine – no passport required!  Using our online editor, begin with the starters – antipasti (cured meats and cheeses, bruschetta, and your signature antipasto della casa). Up next, describe your primi (firsts), such as al dente pasta dishes, creamy risottos, and slurpable soups. Follow with an array of secondi (seconds), the main courses that feature meats, fish, or vegetables.  Offer a delectable selection of sides (contorni), like grilled or sautéed vegetables, a green salad, or potatoes.  Finally, top off the perfect meal with a sweet treat from the dolci (desserts) portion of the menu – gelato, tiramisu, cannoli, panna cotta.  Include an additional section of digestivi (digestive) shots, caffè variations, and, of course, a fully-stocked wine list (bevande).  When the orders have been taken, leave your diners with a hearty “Buon appetito!”

Ice Cream Menus

“I scream, you scream, we all scream!”  Take a quieter route to laying out the deliciousness of the array of ice cream flavors and combinations your shop offers by transferring the screaming to paper in the form of a completely personalized (by you!), custom-designed ice cream menu that hushes the masses with a mouthful of your best frozen concoctions.  Describe each offering in yummy detail, and highlight your best-selling options.  Share the price for each by delivery method (sugar cone, waffle cone, chocolate-dipped waffle cone, cup) and amount (1, 2, or 3 scoops).  Signature offerings should receive special mention (such as a massive multi-scoop, multi-flavor, excessively-topped sundae that includes a reward for finishing; or an award-winning banana split or ice cream cake).  Use MyCreativeShop’s online editor and professionally-designed templates to get your menus in hand before the Rocky Road melts all over the soda counter.

Kids Menus

Got kids [in your restaurant]?  Give their parents a helping hand by personalizing a light-hearted kids’ menu that speaks to the inner child in all of us.  Bright colors and pictures are a must.  Simplify the decision-making process by selecting a few universally-loved dishes (such as pizza, mac & cheese, or chicken strips) and uploading a fun graphic for each to enable the non-readers to make their own choice (or select from our library of stock images). Hand out a pack of crayons with every menu and include lots of pre-printed opportunities for the waiting kiddos to create their own masterpiece.  MyCreativeShop’s easy-peasy online editor will get you from the design stage to printed and done before the tables (and floors – we are talking about kids here) are bussed!

Lunch Menus

The lunch hour is precious – if your restaurant wants to be able to draw the office crowd away from their sack lunches and leftovers, your lunch offerings need to not only be delicious and appropriately portioned, they must also be efficient (translation: fast!) and budget-friendly.  Design a lunch menu that they can’t resist!  Scour your full menu for dishes that already fit those criteria (or that can be easily modified into a smaller portion to earn a spot at the lunch table). Group each option appropriately – Soups & Salads, Sandwiches, Appetizers (sometimes you just want an app for lunch!), Pastas, and à la carte selections (a baked potato, French fries, or seasonal veggie).  MyCreativeShop’s online editor will have you customizing your menu lickety-split – just in time to seat the lunch rush!

Mexican Restaurant Menus

Your restaurante mexicano is the go-to destination for families, birthday celebrations, and every possible kind of fiesta.  Design a menú delicioso that ensures that any experience around one of your tables will be memorable and satisfying.  Begin with a list of starters, like homemade tortilla chips and salsa, chile con queso, or guacamole, or a giant platter of nachos to share.  Group entrees by type – a section for inventive tacos, a slew of spicy burritos, an array of enviable enchiladas, flaming fajitas, lighter lettuce-based options, and even a stack of seared steaks. Include a set of sides, including rice and refried beans, along with a list of extras – sour cream, guacamole, additional cheese.  Follow your savory courses with a bevy of authentic desserts – fried ice cream, churros, flan, and more.  Finally, end with a variety of yummy margaritas and sangrias.  With the speed and efficiency of our online editor, your menu will make even YOU muy hambriento!

Pizza Menus

Pizza (the staple of college students and picky elementary students across the country) varies greatly depending on what city (US or otherwise) you’re chowing down in.  Clue your customers in to your preparation of choice by designing a fun and engaging pizza menu that gets everyone lined up for a slice – or a whole pie! MyCreativeShop’s online editor makes the design process as simple as selecting and placing pizza toppings (a mushroom here, a text box there).  Highlight your style – are you more like Chi-Town’s Giordano’s and Lou Malnati’s, or perhaps the Big Apple’s Lombardi’s and John’s of Bleecker Street, or even the West Coast stylings of California Pizza Kitchen®? In addition, describe your most popular combinations – especially any signature topping arrays.  Give a by the slice and whole pie price for each (unless you’re a strictly whole pie joint like John’s).  Your diners will be chomping at the bit to get in your door and place their order!

Pub Menus

Whether your pub resembles a setting in a Guy Ritchie film (like Zeitgeist at the Jolly Gardeners as “The Drowning Trout” in Snatch or the Royal Oak as “Somoan Joe’s” in Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels) or has a more modern flair, your patrons want to know what you have to offer.  Design a fitting pub menu for the occasion – a socially lubricated drink menu (don’t forget the Guinness®!) and a hunger-satisfying grub list (fish and chips, anyone?). Our online editor lets you fully customize every aspect of your pub menu to your liking.  You can print them yourselves, or we can do it for you so that you can focus on perfecting your shepherd’s pie and throwing a few darts while it bakes!

Take Out Menus

The only thing better than enjoying a meal or dessert in a restaurant is noshing on those same vittles in the comfort of your own home.  Treat your customers to a night in by designing a yummy take-out menu that can enjoy a place of prominence on their refrigerator or bulletin board.  Select your menu size and style based on how much of your full menu you make available for take-out (if everything’s on the table, the bi- or tri-fold menu may be your best bet; if you have a more condensed selection, a one-page flyer-style menu is the way to go).  Separate items by category and make sure prices are clearly displayed.  Our online editor enables you to get the non-culinary tasks done quickly so that you can get your menus in the hands of hungry home diners in time to satisfy their growling stomachs!

Thanksgiving Menus

Home cooks and professional chefs alike can design the perfect turkey day menu for their family or restaurant holiday gathering.  MyCreativeShop’s online editor makes it easy as pie for anyone to whip up a pumpkin pie-worthy Thanksgiving Day menu, no experience required.  Begin your recipe for success by describing your starters/appetizers (shrimp cocktail, relish tray, stretch pants), and follow those up with a smorgasbord of sides (mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, stuffing, green bean casserole).  Craft a mouth-watering description of your main course (turkey, ham, tofurkey, turducken).  Put your baking skills on display with a Duff Goldman-approved array of festive dessert options.  Finally, lay out your cozy beverage offerings (mulled cider, spicy hot chocolate, 7-Up® punch).  Print them yourself, or let us do the work for you and check one more item off your holiday to-do list!

Wedding Menus

Planning a wedding is a monumental task whether you’re the bride, groom, wedding planner, or even the caterer.  There are a million little details to remember, perfect, and finalize. Once the catering order is completed, it’s on to designing a just-right wedding menu for the reception.  Our professionally-designed templates ensure that there is one that will fit everyone’s style – we have a huge library of available fonts and our designs are on-trend and top-notch!  Begin with the bride and groom’s names and wedding date.  Follow it up with mouth-watering descriptions of each well-labeled course (keep it simple with Starters, Main Course, and Dessert, or dress it up a bit more with First Course, Second Course, Main Course, Dessert, Beverages, and even a Signature Cocktail).  With the help of our online editor, your guests will be saying, “I do!” to every delicious dish you have to offer!

Wine Menu

Whether you operate an “everybody knows your name” neighborhood bar or an upscale, full-service restaurant, your wine cellar will be in demand.  Help your patrons make the perfect selection by customizing an expertly designed and aged wine menu that guides them to their right choice.  Begin by introducing your wine program with colorful, fragrant language.  Group your wine list by reds, whites, rosés, and a final champagnes/sparkling/other section. Include mouth-watering descriptions of each offering, along with the price per glass and per bottle.  If your venue includes a full kitchen, make sure to highlight the best wine pairings by protein.  Our online editor makes it easy to offer your customers a little wine with their cheese – or is it the other way around?
