Breadcrumb is a POS management system that caters to restaurants, cafes, bars and nightclubs, offering an extensive suite of features optimized for iPad and iPhone. The platform includes flexible point-of-sale tools and payment solutions, as well as functionalities such as check and table management, and time clock.
Breadcrumb helps businesses operate more efficiently, allowing users to quickly search for menu items and edit menus on-the-fly. With just a few taps, users can split, transfer and merge checks, and open and close tabs by swiping a credit card. Servers can also hold items or courses to send over at a later time. Other menu features include automated item countdown and 86’ed alerts.
Breadcrumb’s management tools help track sales and sales items and monitor week-over-week trends. Managers can specify the features each employee gets access to, as well as different views and menus for distinct roles. Users can void or comp items, or an entire check by dollar amount or percentage. The Inventory countdown feature alerts servers when an item is running low and automatically adds 86'd items when they run out.
The platform allows users to complete electronic payments with signature on screen, and add customizable tip suggestions. Time clock integration enables managers to pay workers accurately, as well as check up on labor insights to understand and manage costs, scheduling, and employee productivity. Owners and managers can view up-to-the-minute sales reports, and get an overview of sales and tax, as well as guest and check counts.
I've had Breadcrumb for 3 years now at my restaurant. The first two years it was adequate, easy to use and more or less stable in spite of a few server outages here and there. However, the back-end was pretty cumbersome, full of dead ends and potholes that could easily be fixed with a tiny bit of coding. For instance, if you want to edit a menu item, but while editing you choose to add the item to a new display group, the page changes and does not save your edits to date. Also, you can never delete a menu item. You can archive, but not in batches, so it takes forever. But whatever, overall good enough to not have to go through the hassle of switching to a new pos system.
Since Breadcrumb has been acquired by Upserve last year, it's been a gradual downhill slide to stupidity. The first few months it seemed all they cared about was to convert their new Breadcrumb customers to Upserve products -- things we just do not need -- instead of focusing hard and quick on improving the new system they were in charge of. Since then, it has gotten worse. There have been server outages on busy Saturday nights, mandatory software updates -- on busy Saturday nights ... you get the picture. Uber frustrating. And frankly, there has been next to nothing done to improve the software use, or extend features. It seems as if Upserve is not capable of handling the new transition, and I am done complaining to them about functionality. The support team is nice and sympathetic, but they have no power to make the changes we need. We will be moving on to TouchBistro in the coming month. I would not get involved with this POS, it seems to be on a downward slope to obsolescence.
Simple, easy to set up
Clear POS layout
Bad server uptime
Inconsiderate management of maintenance schedules such as software upgrades
Limited front end and back end features

Having trained lots of people to use it, everyone seems really impressed with how 'easy' it is to learn. I like that there are several ways to do almost anything. Also, on the admin side, the reporting is fantastic. I love being able to edit items and check reports for multiple locations in real time, from anywhere.
I only have a few real complaints. First it would be very helpful to transfer tabs in bulk. In some locations there is a changeover that occurs everynight which is common going to back to old 'banger' days, where bartenders each had their own drawer. Breadcrumb does not make this very easy as each tab has to be transferred one at a time and approved one at a time, small issue, but a bit of nuisance. Also, it would be helpful if modifiers could have more options, not just up a dollar or two / down a dollar or two, but include multipliers.
I have been trying for weeks to get breadcrumb to do anything about compensating us for our monetary losses, the hours invested in all of this, and not much has been done. The system is not that expensive overall, so I guess you get what you pay for. They are simply not ready for primetime.
This is actually a great product, with the platform that is more expensive than any other that I've seen without costing $ and being hardware focused.
We took on this product in October 2016, and it has gotten progressively worse since then. We trained and showed everyone how to have a system work, and now we are shopping for other options, as this system regularly fails in the middle of service creating mass chaos for all of my staff who have to deal with crash kits and do their best to continue service. The system has offered a serious hit to our staff morale.
It takes money from people and puts it in my bank.
Great Remote access and seamless menu updates especially when added remotely. Items added or changed through our previous point of sale system would have required a two to three minute reboot for the changes to update. The system incorporates comprehensive and useful analytics through breadcrumb hq and upserve. Can see what items are selling/profitable on a customizable timeframe.
Times of full system updates. time frame. Than that I don't have any major concerns. Some of the hardware does lose its functionality over a short period of time ( ie: having to disconnect the casing to plug in an iPhone cable when the credit card sweeper stops charging the device from an android charger)

Ease of Use. Classic POS setup, but best for a smaller operation. Modifying / Open Food Items / Adding menu items / updating menus can be quite tedious. A daily checkout report and the ability for my accountant to have direct access to the POS system is nice.
Business practices. Take it or leave it attitude. Practices that practically force you to use their credit card processing. Works out to a month extra hidden fees to use your own credit card processor. The outrageous monthly expense to add Grubhub/Seamless. The outrageous monthly expense for them to hold your data after you leave them. It's almost better for them to not have a customer and just collect fees a month.
