There’s one type of local business that desperately needs simple, informative websites: Restaurants. When it comes to the average restaurant, website visitors usually want just a few pieces of information: location, hours, and menu. If ordering or reservations are offered, then the phone number too. If you can provide those things in an attractive format, you’ve done it! You’ve met the needs of 99.9% of the people looking your business up online.

I wanted to create a free resource that any restaurant owner using Divi could use to seamlessly get an attractive single-page website up and running quickly and easily. So I made Diner, a free Divi layout pack that provides all the essential information sections a local restaurant needs. Enjoy!

What’s Included in the Diner Layout Pack?

This layout is simple and doesn’t have much custom CSS in it, however, what it does have in abundance is negative margins. Most of the customization was done by using Divi build-in margin, padding and gutter controls. To find more information about negative margin and how to use it, check out this post by Tom Ewer.

The layout has 6 sections: main header, general Information, menu, reservation, reviews and contact details. You can expand the layout by cloning rows or sections.

Setting Up the Diner Layout Pack

To get the navigation to look exactly like the demo follow the steps below.

First step is to get the navigation working. Go to Appearance > Menus and open your Primary menu (or create one if it’s a new site).

First add the page that contains the layout to navigation.

Next step is to add custom links to enable navigation to different sections on the page. In the layout I already assigned an unique ID to all sections.

Chef section ID = “chef”
Menu section ID=”menu”
Section with reservation ID=”reservation”
Reviews section ID=”reviews”
Contact details section ID=”contact”.

On the left hand side of the page open Custom Links > in the field “URL” add #sectionID, in the “Link Text” add the text for your menu. > Click “Add to Menu”.

For example, to add the link to the Chef section, add the following:

URL: #chef
Link text: chef
Click “Add to Menu”

You will need to repeat it for all 5 sections.

Adding Custom CSS in the Divi Theme Options

Now we need to remove the shadow box in the navigation.

Go to the Divi > Theme Options > scroll down to Custom CSS section and add this code:

#main-header, #main-header.et-fixed-header {
-webkit-box-shadow:none !important;
-moz-box-shadow:none !important;
box-shadow:none !important;
}

Click “Save Changes” button.

Customizer Settings

Go to Divi > Theme Customizer > Header & Navigation > Header Format. For Header Style choose “Centered Inline Logo”, leave other options unchecked.

Go to Divi > Theme Customizer > Header & Navigation > Primary Menu Bar. Check the following options: “Make Full Width” and “Hide Logo Image”.

Menu Height: 52
Logo max height: 54 (default)
Text Size: 19
Letter Spacing: 1
Font: Josefin Slab
Text Colour: rgba(0,0,0,0.6)
Active Linkd colour: #2b3035
Background colour: #ffffff
Dropdown menu colour: #ffffff
Dropdown menu line colour: #08cac4
Dropdown menu text colour: rgba(0,0,0,0.6)

Primary-Menu-Bar-Settings

Switch to Divi > Theme Customizer > Header & Navigation > Fixed Navigation Settings:

The settings we need to change:

Check the “Hide Logo Image”
Fixed Menu Height: 52
Text size: 19
Primary Menu Background Color: #ffffff
Primary Menu Link Color: rgba(0,0,0,0.6)
Active Primary Menu Link Color: #282a2d
