Create a menu board

Create a menu board

Cafes use blackboards for daily specials because they offer a practical, visually appealing, and engaging way to showcase changing menu items while also contributing to the overall ambiance and charm of the establishment.

As daily specials change frequently, depending on the availability of ingredients and the chef's creativity, using a blackboard allows the establishment to easily update and modify the specials without the need to reprint menus.

Blackboards are highly visible and catch the eye of customers as they enter or pass by the cafe. They provide a clear and prominent space to showcase the daily offerings, making it more likely that customers will notice and consider ordering them.

The handwritten or artistic presentation of specials on a blackboard can give the menu a more personal and unique touch. This can create a sense of authenticity and charm, making the cafe feel less formal and more welcoming.

Blackboard paint offers a versatile way to make these special boards in any size or shape, or even using a quirky colour to suit the decor and space. They can be wall-mounted, freestanding, directly onto the surface or onto a substrate that's attached to the walls.

Simply paint an area of your wall, or if you are lucky enough to have a featured wall as in this picture, you an paint a piece of wood which you can fix to the wall.

Write on your daily specials, wipe off and start again.
