The business trades from attractive well-presented premises with a good prominent frontage and is situated in a sought-after area close to the town centre of the popular East Sussex coastal town of Eastbourne.
Eastbourne is a town, seaside resort and borough in the county of East Sussex on the south coast, 19 miles east of Brighton. Eastbourne is immediately to the east of Beachy Head, the highest chalk sea cliff in Great Britain and part of the larger Eastbourne Downland Estate.
As a seaside resort Eastbourne it derives a large and increasing income from tourism, with revenue from traditional seaside attractions augmented by conferences, public events and cultural sightseeing.
Recently decorated & refurbished (including a new kitchen, new double glazing, new laminate flooring and re-wiring) the premises comprise of a lock-up shop unit with a good glass frontage with large sign and an attractive interesting split-level internal layout.
As you enter the shop initially it has two defined counter/work areas, one for the presentation of flowers and the other with refrigerated display cabinets catering for the café/tearooms & takeaway side of the business. Very attractively presented this main area has high ceilings and also includes some seating and 4 chandelier style light fittings finish the bright appealing decor.
Open plan to the main area and up a few steps leads to the café seating area, customer cloakroom/WC & the kitchen. Further double-glazed patio doors lead out to the enclosed rear courtyard garden that is also very nicely presented with further outside tables and seating areas.
The kitchen has newly fitted units and is equipped with an oven, deep fat fryer, buffalo grill and small fridge & further small fridge/freezer.
The premises also has the benefit of a good sized cellar beneath the property, which has two large rooms, one used mainly for additional storage that includes 2 x large upright freezers and a chest freezer, the other room which has a good head height and plenty of light is used for additional storage and the floristry side of the business.
We are also informed that because of the style of the premises and its alcohol licence that it is becoming a very popular location for Afternoon Tea & for special occasions and baby showers, etc and that lots of further potentials exists to expand the current operation, change to have more emphasis on either the café or florist, if preferred, or indeed open longer trading hours.
The café which until recently opened 9.30-4.00pm, serving a selection of breakfasts, simple lunchtime starters, as well as sandwiches to eat-in & takeaway, plus panini’s, light lunches, jacket potatoes, burgers, cakes, hot & cold drinks, is also licensed.
Recently, because of other business commitments, the business is only opening from 11.00am-2.00pm and serving a more restricted menu.
