7. STEAM – Multipurpose Restaurant, Pub & Cafe WordPress Theme
Steam for WordPress is an vibrant and eye-catching design with a unique design and feel overall. The themes clever use of effects for images and carousels may not be to everyone’s tastes, but this is exactly why I have included it in today’s list.
An important feature offered by Steam is the in-built support for opentable, a popular booking system, so you can use steam as more than just an online menu. The theme has proven to be popular in the few months since launch, so if your looking for something with a unique twist to showcase your business, Steam is worth your time.

Barista is not short on features also, as it has been bundled with a complete demo data package (with one-click setup) which boasts 9 home page examples and more.
9. Cristiano Restaurant – Cafe & Restaurant WordPress WooCommerce Theme
Cristiano is a WordPress theme which has been designed to appeal to the more ‘upper class’ establishments out there (read, posh) but oh boy does it do it well.
The overall classy design provided is a real breath of fresh air and to me, and if it could have a fragrance, I bet its rich mahogany – its just so stylish! The the theme is a simple affair to use, using shortcodes for simply content creation rather than a page builder, but if you can forgive this the design is well worth it.
10. NUVO – Cafe & Restaurant WordPress Theme – Multiple Restaurant & Bistro Demos
Our final entry is an oldie but a goldie for sure, having been released in 2014, but the award winning design on offer with NUVO has aged like a fine wine.
Not only is the elegant and timeless design very appealing and flexible, the core of the theme is based on Visual Composer, which has helped it age with grace as the theme is still quick, beautiful and reliable as ever.
