This Delft-inspired menu is for a bakery that draws a lot on its Dutch heritage. Different patterns make up the different sections of the menu. The entire look and feel, decor and seeting arrangements draws on the old V.O.C. elements. The Dutch are famous for their blue and white Delft ceramics, patterns and crockery. Big paintings, rustic woven baskets, fresh produce, a flower market, butchery, creamery and even a roastery are to name but a few of the "inhouse stores" at Schoon de Companje. The bakery is ofcourse the main attraction. Situated at the borrom of Church street in Stellenbosch, under green trees and with laughter and the smell of fresh bread calling you closer, it was an absolute pleasure researching the brand for this menu design project.
The bakery has a winter and summer menu, and some dishes are even changed on a weekly basis. The hot-press sandwich is a personal tradition of mine. The baker (Fritz Schoon) learned to bake bread with wild yeast, making each loaf with love. Enjoy a range of condenment platters with your bread or opt for another option.
On the weekend and special evening a pizza and wine evening is held at Schoon de Companje. The pizza menu is a seperate section, but is also included in the menu.
Different flowers, geometric patterns and Delft inspired elements make up different patterns for each section. The patterns on the right hand side of the menu devide each section into a sub category.
