    Well it all depends on your development background.
    Assuming that you have no development background at all, you can either pay a freelance developer or company to develop your app. There are many sites online that you can find freelance programmers that will be able to do this for you given your specifications.
    Depending on what you need for your shop, there might even be products out there that fit your needs and all you will need to do is buy the product and get the developers to customize the product for your Shop. Think of it just like Point of Sale software that you buy and is customized to your shop.
    But if you would like to develop the app yourself you will need to start learning how to program. This is not a simple task. It will require from you many hours learning the basics of programming and only then once you have a descent grip you can start learning the framework and languages that you will need in order to develop you app. Actually, it can be whatever website, application, chatbot and even Telegram channel. Here I found for you a great pitch.

    This industry is now gaining momentum and is very popular. I think that a good and convenient app will help you a lot.

    With 40 years of software development behind me, I can definitely attest to the fact that there are very few good software developers.
    ALL Graphical User Interface designers think they create user-friendly interfaces, which doesn't explain why many user interfaces are horrible and un-intuitive.
    Why do custom development?
    Surely there must several mobile apps for coffee shops that are customizable enough for your requirements?
    Custom development is costly, slow and fraught with problems.
    Even if the original product is reasonably priced, changes can be very costly (and there will be changes).
    Once you use a product, you can effectively be held to ransom by naughty developers over the cost of changes as you are now locked into their product.
    My recommendation would be to find a popular open-source application.
    Source Forge would be a good place to start looking.
    Thanks

    Incidentally, I just searched sourceforge.net for "android shopping cart" and it showed me 214 results.
    One of them might fit your requirements.
    You would have to sell many, many cups of coffee to recoup the cost of custom development.

    I think it's a great idea to have an app. You can set up mobile orders for customers, pick up, delivery, etc.

    I believe that is necessary thing to have an application in any business. We know the words Bil Gates said, that if the business is not in the web, you have not business at all. Nowadays, all the biggest companies, startups and restaurants have mobile apps to make the services more easier for their consumers. I have my own restaurant with the delivery service and 5 years ago I started my cooperation with the android app developer https://computools.com/. All the risks were calculated and business plan was settled. Since the time I have started to use the app for my consumers and website for making my restaurant "visible" online, the orders increasing 50% each year! I believe the android app is extreamely valuable thing to think about!

    the main problem with building an app just for your coffee shop is that its only as valuable as the amount of people that download it and use it. If you're expecting it to suddenly get downloads from customers that don't even know who you are then you are mistaken. Launching an app needs to be treated like a tech business where you think about the cost of marketing it to new users, advertising it to them and thinking about how much they will pay through the app - if you don't spend money advertising to new users then the only people that will have the app are the loyal customers you already have, that already visit and already spend money in your store... the cost of getting that app developed for this purpose will destroy all your margins on these customers for multiple months. The better bet is to be on a platform that takes care of getting users for you, so you don't have to spend energy and money on the marketing as well as getting access to a larger customer base. Building an app for people that are already in your store and buying from you will just destroy your margins. Happy to talk this through with anyone who isn't sure about all this. Also random links to machine learning topics won't help a coffee shop.
