How do I know which POS system is best for my cafe, bakery, or coffee shop?
Using this Excel workbook or editable PDF, you’ll be able to compare the hardware options and software features that are most important for your cafe or bakery. Using a “Yes” and “No” system, you can compare up to five POS providers in one document and see which service will best serve your restaurant.
If you don’t need a certain feature for your cafe, bakery, or coffee shop, you can simply delete the row. We’ve also left rows for you to add in features that may be missing.
