Supplying Your Casual Restaurant Dining Room


When stocking a restaurant, a lot of questions come to mind. Think about the types of drinks you want to serve, and then pick your glassware accordingly. For a restaurant, you are going to need a few more types of glasses than you would for a small diner or café. Be sure to stock up on the following types of glassware.


water glass

Water Glasses
Every place setting needs a water glass. These glasses can be used for any purpose, but you can chose to use smaller glasses for water than you use for other beverages since a lot of guests use water to supplement their beverages, not act as the primary beverage. We suggest 10 ounce glasses for water. Any type of glass can be used for water, so feel free to pick a glass that will fit your décor.

beverage glass

Beverage Glasses

juice glass

coffee glass

Coffee Glasses
Whether it is for holding coffee at breakfast or for holding coffee drinks for after dinner, coffee glasses are a great way to dress up your café concoctions. Consider using these instead of traditional ceramic mugs for a different touch.

Flute Glasses

Tips for Specialty Restaurants
If you are glassware stocking for a Mexican restaurant, don’t forget the margarita glasses! Margaritas are always better when served in a glass with a big bowl and a large rim for salt or sugar.

For Italian restaurants, be sure there are enough wine glasses to accommodate both your red and white wines. You might want to keep an extra dozen red and a dozen white glasses in the back just in case.
