Portfolio Gallery is a picture gallery & coffee shop with framing workshop. The Gallery specialises in modern framed prints and canvases, complemented by contemporary gifts, stationery and greetings cards. The gallery has been established since 2000 and in that time has built up a reputation for offering customers quality merchandise and aims to support local artists. Popular with locals and holiday makers alike for its premium, Italian style espresso coffees and selection of handmade cakes and pastries, the coffee shop compliments the gallery perfectly. Portfolio also benefits from offering bespoke picture framing with an onsite workshop. Our clients have operated the business for the last 17 years and are now looking to retire, thus this fabulous life style opportunity has come to the market.

Property Information

St Marychurch is a popular part of town and is situated less than half a mile from the sea and less than a mile from Torquay town centre.
