Restaurant Menu Plugin
What does the Resturant Menu Plugin for Divi Theme do?
Designed especially to manage restaurant menus for WordPress and the Divi Theme.
The Restaurant Menu Plugin is a tool for managing your restaurant’s food and drink items. It focuses on doing the basics for the best SEO and Mobile usage on your website.
It uses a Custom Post Type and a Divi Module to make this process simple and easy.
Where do you want to go for dinner?
This age old question is rarely answered with anything but food items or types of food. When we ask you this question your normal response is “Pizza” or “Steak”. These are menu items at a particular restaurant.
More and more people make a selection based on a mobile search. Discovering new cafes or restaurants is all about the food and the experience.
Statista data shows over 600,000 restaurants in the US alone. The competition is as intense as ever. One simple way to improve your customer experience is a restaurant menu.
Resturant Menu Plugin Features
Four main features make this divi menu plugin perfect for your restaurant website. It is also very easy to use.

Using our Custom Post Type for the Restaurant Menu Plugin means you can easily add your food and drink menu items. We have a customised data entry form so you can focus on getting the minimum amount of data required to create your food menu. The data also maps to important schema data and the Custom Divi Module.
Categories and Tags are also enabled to give you flexible options in how you display your products.
A Multiple Pricing Option is available so you can do variable size pricing. For example, you can sell wine by the bottle or glass. Or you may want to have a small, a medium and a large size serving.
This is all enabled via the Custom Post Type – making menu management easy for you and your customer!
The Custom Divi Module Makes Styling Easy!

Restaurant Menu Divi Module
We created an easy to use Divi Module so you can insert your food menu on any page. It makes it simple to get your menu information from the post type and inject it into any page using the Divi Builder. Thanks to Divi Framework, Divi now has a great drag and drop Restaurant Menu Plugin!
We have ensured that all the goodness of Divi is available in the Restaurant Menu Module. Many styling options are available to make your layout unique. Add borders, background colours, heading styles, line separators and shadows. Everything you can normally do in Divi.
You can choose whether the menu item needs to display a special tag. For example “Chef Special”, “Vegan” or “Gluten Free”. This is a great way to highlight featured menu items or daily specials.
You can choose from a 1, 2 or 3 column layout. The module is also fully responsive so it degrades down to single column view on mobile devices.
Set Your Currency
Allows you to set a country-specific currency symbol for your menu.
Only Show Specific Categories
The Divi Module allows you to group your menu items into categories for placement on any page. For example, Mains, Desserts, Drinks, Wines – whatever you like.
Page Builder support
Our latest version has front end page builder support for Divi Theme. You can edit the way you want to.
Selecting specific categories can give you more flexibility when it comes to designing your restaurant menu page. You can even turn on category descriptions for each menu section.
Structured Data Helps Google Understand Your Restaurant Menu

What is Structured Data?
Structured Data is a tool used to help you get Rich Data Snippets into the Google Search.
Using the Schema.org format, we have created a way for you to easily add this rich data to your WordPress Restaurant Menu.
What are the SEO Advantages?
Google shows rich snippets in the search results for a lot of common searches. With the implementation of a schema.org vocabulary, you are giving your website the best possible chance to be shown in search results.
A Dedicated Menu
We have a dedicated menu for Restaurant SEO to turn on these fields for your restaurant. Once this is turned on, all your menu items will get rich data snippets.
Validating The Data
We recommend you check your data against the itemscope information on Schema.org which can be found on their website.
You can also use Google Webmaster Tools to validate the schema and structured data.
Currency and Location
Using the right location data will give you a much better chance of showing at the top of the search results for your local area.
Get an SEO Advantage
SEO is becoming more technical all the time. Give your site some ‘search engine love’ with this menu tool and get more visits from Organic Search Results.
Set the Default Style with the Theme Customiser

The Theme Customizer
The default way to style your WordPress site is by using the Theme Customizer. We have integrated ourRestaurant Menu Plugin into the Theme Customizer to give you more design control over your default settings.
Your Menu Style
Having a distinct menu style is important for any restaurant. Get your potential customers to engage with your menu easily on any device.
The Theme Customizer will let you style just about every aspect of your WordPress Restaurant Menu. We have covered:
- Number of columns in your layout
- Menu items with font, spacing and borders
- Category title and description
- Sub categories for menu sections
- Tagged items to highlight important menu items
- Borders and outlines
Remember, that you can still use the Divi Module to override these settings. These are the default settings for your styling. This can save a lot of time in particular for large menus.

I edited my menu in the Theme Customiser but it isn't changing my menu, what did I do?
This is because Divi Module style will over right these settings. Make sure to use defaults in your Divi Module. You can also try removing your module and adding it again to clear out the previous settings. If you get stuck please send a bug report to our support, we are happy to assist.
How can I test my restaurant menu structured data?
Using the Google testing tool is the best way. The Google Structured Data testing tool takes in a URL. If you have Yoast installed you can also send a URL directly to the tool from the admin bar.
Can I have a menu item with more than one category
Yes. You can. This is very helpful if you want Breakfast, lunch and dinner menus for your restaurant.
