    French Rooster Menu

    This French Rooster menu is both simple and elegant 

    This French Rooster menu template is a great template for your French restaurant. The background image on this menu, and border theme were both created using the free desktop publishing software, Paint.net (as a matter of fact, all of the images were edited using this program and then were imported into OpenOffice).

    The background and borders feature roosters and a spray of flowers. The menu itself is clean-line. The image was sent behind the text in order to create the layered look you see here. This menu was not created to be used with images of your food items. All this template needs is your menu items and prices!

    Calico Cafe Menu

    The Calico Cafe menu template is perfect for your casual dining endeavor With the Calico Café menu template, you can have a little fun while keeping clean-lines in your menu. While this menu was created for a more casual dining situation than the French Rooster menu, the clean lines make it compatible with a cafe that serves high-end breakfast and lunch fare.

    The border for this menu was created in Paint.net by flipping an image around four times then applying the "ink" tool to it. Once imported into OpenOffice, I resized the border for the interior pages to make more space for the menu items. The coffee cat in the middle was constructed in two layers from two different images and then was added separately into the document.

    Wine Bar Menu

This template is very formal and is ready for you to add in your favorite wines and wine pairings to create a successful wine menu. It is important when running a wine bar to make sure you have a selection of food as well! No pictures should be added to this menu - the focus here is on elegance and atmosphere.

    50s Diner Menu

    Have fun creating your menu with this 50s diner menu template This fun and funky 50s diner menu template gives lots of room for images of your diner food. Simply insert the images - you can overlap the borders if you like - and add your menu items. This template is a lot of fun and features old 50s style cars stacked upon one another with a red foreground. Whe you run a diner, often people come more for the atmosphere than the food. This template is a great addition to your 50s theme!

    Pizza Shack Menu

    You can add your own custom images to this pizza parlor menu Finally, be sure not to miss this pizza-themed menu template, while the template is simple in design, it allows pizzaria owners plenty of space for inserting their photos of salads, pizzas and even delicious lasagnas! To add additional pages to any of these menus, simply press the "enter" key until you have a fresh page. Double click on the background image to select it, copy the image, then paste the image on the new page. Because the images are already set to falling in the background, you are then ready to add your text to these restaurant menu OpenOffice templates.
