Whether you’re planning to open your own bakery or cafe, you’ll need a terrific logo that sets the tone for your business and tells potential customers concisely and effectively what your business is all about and what to expect. Creating a logo can be a daunting prospect for small businesses, which typically don’t have graphic design expertise or a lot of cash to invest in hiring a designer.
If this strikes a chord, we’ve got a great solution for you. Use a logo maker to help you design the perfect bakery and cafe logos. I’ll not only show you how to design your own logo with a logo maker, but I’ll also share 20 of the best bakery shop logo ideas to get you motivated.

Most of the bakery logo designs used here are taken from the Logo Maker at Placeit, a simple and low-stress tool for small businesses to try out various bakery shop logo ideas.

Components of the Best Bakery and Cafe Logos
Before we turn our attention to some bakery logo ideas and designs, let’s define exactly what a logo is and what the key components of logo design are, using actual bakery logos examples.
A logo is a symbol that helps identify and promote a business, product, organisation, etc. Logos usually take the form of an abstract or illustrative symbol. In our example here you can see that the Cassiopeia Coffee shop uses a combination of leaves, beans and small branches from the coffee plant to indicate that their business is coffee related.
Some businesses also use text with a distinct font for their logo. But most companies tend to combine a symbol with text, which makes their logo much easier to remember.
Another very important logo component is colour. Colour affects our emotions and behaviours and plays a critical role in designing a successful logo. There’s a reason fast food giant McDonalds for example, uses red and yellow in its logo. Red attracts attention and stimulates the appetite. While yellow is associated with happiness and is the most visible colour in daylight. This is why those golden arched are easily spotted from a great distance.
With just three elements to consider, how could you go wrong, right? Well unfortunately, putting these three elements together is a skill that designers train for years to hone. Don't worry, we know you don't have years to spare. You have a business to run. That's where the Placeit Logo Maker comes in. Take a look at the following cafe and bakery logos examples and you’ll see what I mean.
