Is there anything better than sitting down in a booth at a local cafe that seems ageless? Whether your cafe is brand new or if it has been in the family for generations, there are cute cafe additions, whether it be with furniture or decorations, that you can use to give your cafe a sense of classic charm.
Bakery Display Cases
Customers like to be able to see what they are buying before they buy it. This is why putting pictures in a menu can be helpful. Putting bakery in a display case works the same way. Seeing the bakery can entice customers to buy it, especially if you put the display case by the cash register. You can contact case manufacturers to get display sizes and colors. You can also decide whether you need a case to be refrigerated or not.
Letter Tile Menu Boards
A cute way to display your specials, desserts, or anything else is to use a letter tile menu board. These are the classic-looking boards that you switch out letters on to make the board say whatever you want. Honestly, the best part about these boards is that they look like they belong in a cafe. Will it help your cafe to make more sales? Probably not. Will it help your cafe look a little more charming? Definitely. The only thing that could be better is if you were able to get a replica board that looked like it was from the 1950s or one that was homemade, rather than bought from a big company (who has all their boards looking exactly the same).
If the classic look of a 1950s cafe diner doesn’t speak to you, then maybe rustic decorations will match your sense of interior design style better. Decorations made out of wood are especially popular. Some decorations you might want to look into buying for your cafe include signs and woodprints. If you are looking for something both practical and decorative, then you may want to consider buying rustic napkin holders, condiment trays, and the like.
Adding one or all of these decorations and furnishing can make your cafe or diner look cuter and more charming than you might have ever imagined. So, what are you waiting for? Start redesigning your cafe today to draw in a whole new type of clientele and boost your sales while you’re at it!
