Tried a couple of plugins for adding menu images, so far only this one worked for me. Also the support is top-notch. Overall a 5-star plugin!

Seems unfinished. Bit surprised to see they it’s a paid plugin with a free version. I wouldn’t pay.Beware: You need to save every menu item before being able to add an image. Then a hover appears that you can use to insert an image.However, hiding the menu item title doesn’t work on mobile, so you get both menu item title + image.Annoying.I chose another plugin that had far more features, had no paid plans, looks good, and works flawlessly.
