Canva’s restaurant menu maker helps you transform a handful of food photos and some saucy sentences into a complete, professional restaurant menu in just a few minutes, so you can get back in the kitchen.

Designing a restaurant menu with Canva is as easy as boiling water

Suppose you make the greatest lasagna the world has ever known. Or your tex-mex pad thai is to die for. Finally you give in, follow the advice you’ve heard for years, and start a restaurant. What’s next?

There’s plenty to do to turn a few good recipes and a dream into a real restaurant. Give Canva some of the heavy lifting with our restaurant menu maker. With your appetizers, entrees, soups, and specials combined with Canva’s free tools, you can create a professional menu that will delight your inner foodie and impress your customers.

Make a restaurant menu in just a few clicks

  1. Open Canva and select the “Menu” design type.
  2. Choose from our library of beautifully designed layouts.
  3. Upload your own photos or choose from over 1 million stock images.
  4. Fix your images, add stunning filters and edit text.
  5. Save and share.

Customize your menu to suit your brand

  1. Change the images. Upload your own images or choose from our stock library of over 1 million photographs, graphics and illustrations.
  2. Change the fonts. Choose from over 130 fresh fonts.
  3. Change the background. Choose a background from our library or use an image.

Keep your menu current

Have new specials or seasonal dishes? No need to start from scratch. With our customizable layouts, it’s easy to replace photos and edit text to keep your menu’s selection fresh and up to date.

After updating your menu (and maybe adjusting those prices a bit), getting your restaurant menu ready to print is a snap. Once your menu’s done, click the Download button and save your design as a print-ready PDF file to get it ready to send to a print professional.

Bolster your menu with great design

There’s much more to making a dazzling menu than low-angled shots of your dishes and tasty descriptions. Give your menu some design panache with our super-sized library of over 1 million stock images and graphics. Plenty of symbols, icons, textures, and design elements are available for free, and premium images are priced at only $1.

Canva’s mobile features are food truck friendly

Are you a guerrilla cook, braving the culinary landscape with a truck, a cart, or a well-stocked wicker basket? Canva can be your companion. You can access Canva online or go completely mobile with our free iPhone, iPad, an Android apps.

No website? No problem. When you’re tweeting out your cart’s location to promote your fusion empanadas, share your menu with Canva. Simply click “Share” and you can link your hot and fresh menu on Facebook and Twitter, or link it directly to anyone with an e-mail address. No one will ever confuse your 16 different sauces again.
