This Saturday July 1st, we launched yet another business website for a restaurant/cafe in Windsor, Connecticut called Whistle Stop Cafe. I had the pleasure of dinning there for breakfast about 3 years ago; long before they were a client of ours. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed their food. One of our staff members Yvonne Barber actually was a current patron of the restaurant and encouraged them on new ways to market their menu and website. Before we knew it, we were rebuilding their website on a nice responsive design and layout using WordPress.
“Since the beginning, it has been our goal to create a unique menu that blows away traditional ”diner food” with unconventional & delicious menu options. We also employ a great kitchen support team to Elizabeth as well as a wait staff that genuinely love their customers and are never too busy to get to know and remember you. When we started Whistle Stop in the quaint location we had no idea of how popular it would be become. Giving way to its success, we were forced to expand to a new, improved and considerably larger location just down a few doors at 139 Broad Street in December 2010. We are happy to report that the new spot has a terrific open kitchen, a fun & traditional swivel stool counter space along with plenty of well-spaced out tables. There is also a small, private room that can be reserved for family, corporate and special occasion functions. Thanks to the increased space we can serve more of our faithful customers, entertain large parties and host local area musicians monthly for our customers to enjoy while dining.”
This project was an interesting one that brought out some new functionality that was never present for this business’ website. Having a nice photo gallery to showcase their dishes both now and ongoing will be great refreshed content. An easy to navigate food menu that is broken down by different meals of the day as well as beverages and desserts. We also added a blog to the site that will help keep fresh content to the website on a regular basis. From upcoming events to fan favorite dish recipes, subscribing to their blog will be fun and informative.
Well visit their website at Whistle Stop Cafe and see for yourself. And if you’re in the neighborhood, be sure to stop in and say hello to Christina and Elizabeth!

What a pleasure it was to work on this project. The WordPress platform was both beautiful & stylish and despite having a myriad of layout choices it had pretty easy functionality. But most importantly & rewarding, was the look on our clients faces as we transitioned them from a website that “got them by” to one that they were truly proud of and that reflects the cuisine & atmosphere they offer. Thumbs up to the contributions by various DT members!
