Today, we are publishing 10 best WordPress themes for food blogs & websites (restaurants, shops, catering services, etc).
As much as modern food websites may look similar at first sight, their functionality may differ from one niche to another. For instance, a food blog typically needs a dynamic blog page with extra functionality for posting step-by-step recipes. On the contrary, online food shops will focus on a more. extended WooCommerce functionality rather than blog options.
In the next listicle, we took into account both paid & free solutions so that all users can find the most suitable option for their budget.
But first, you’ll probably ask: Where are the next WordPress themes for food blogs from?
Well, our main resource is Gutenix – our own multipurpose WordPress theme, and it’s made specifically to fasten the work process for developers. So instead of creating a website from scratch, they can use pre-built skins like those from Gutenix and become more productive in their work volume.
Gutenix Theme Highlights:
- A collection of 47+ starter sites for small/medium-scale businesses;
- Supports Elementor, Brizy & Gutenberg;
- Superfast & lightweight design;
- 100% WooCommerce-ready;
- AJAX-based customizer;
- 20 extra blocks by ZeGuten (for Gutenberg skins);
- The LITE version provides 5 skins for free.
Food WordPress themes not from the Gutenix bundle are not part of any bundle. A lot of those solutions come from MotoPress – the company specializing in developing advanced WordPress themes & plugins. Individual templates work great for users looking for an efficient one-time solution.
All free templates on our list are located in the official WP repository.
