If you are searching for that perfect opportunity to take on a very well regarded and profitable cafe in a much sought after and highly desirable location then look no more as this is the one for you. Add to that an excellent independent apartment ideal either as owners accommodation or to be let out on a short or long term basis and you have all the boxes ticked!
We are therefore understandably delighted to be appointed to bring this business and property to the market and would urge anyone that is interested to contact us at your earliest convenience to arrange a viewing, as we suspect that it will not remain available for long.
THE BUSINESS ITSELF
The vendors have successfully run the business for the past years building considerably on the previous offering and are only now looking to sell due to their pending retirement. The trading performance of the business is very strong and consistent with high levels of profit being enjoyed which can be clearly seen upon inspection of the accounts.
Operating as a traditional daytime cafe only there is clear scope to extend the opening into the evening with the benefit of being licensed and with limited alternative options available locally. We also understand that there are plans for the area to the front of the property to be pedestrianised meaning further outside seating is likely to be permitted.
Due to the busy tourist trade that the town benefits from and with the well established name that the business has the vendors have added a range of branded products available to purchase including their own blended coffee and takeaway drink cups. This could easily be further expanded upon should a new owner so wish.

Over the period of their ownership they have refurbished and modernised extensively and the property is now finished to a very high standard with quality fittings and tasteful décor throughout.
The ground floor cafe is very bright and well lit with the benefit of being double fronted and at present provides for 38 covers. The decoration and fittings seem to blend perfectly between being traditional yet modern and give a warm but stylish feel to the interior.
The service counter with a double refrigerated display unit shows off a vast range of delicious homemade savouries, pastries and cakes, all of which are impossible to resist! Behind the counter is an Expobar coffee machine and bean grinder, urn, drinks fridge, a hand wash sink and a range of cupboards and shelves.
A door through leads to the compact but very usable kitchen well fitted out with a fryer, griddle plate, warming cupboard, 4-ring gas hob and oven and with a good extraction unit over. There are 3 microwaves, further oven, panini toaster, Polar tall stainless steel fridge, dishwasher, double sink and drainer, hand wash sink, 2 under-counter freezers, 1 further tall fridge, Hobart mixer, stainless streel work benches and a selection of shelving and storage areas.
Up the stairs to the rear there is a large landing area/room which is used for additional storage and prep. This contains 3 x upright freezers and 1 fridge. Across the hallway, which is shared with the apartment, is a further dry storage room used by the business with a chest freezer, upright freezer and ½ table top freezer as well as 2 upright fridges. There is a range of racking providing useful storage. Both rooms are lockable so that they can only be accessed by the business.
ALL MEASUREMENTS ARE APPROXIMATE AND FOR GUIDANCE ONLY.
The apartment enjoys it's own independent ground floor entrance leading up stairs to the communal hallway, at the end of which is the front door into it. Inside the first thing which strikes you is how well presented and welcoming it is. There are quality carpets throughout and traditional timber and latch doors with modern electric panel heaters.
The central hallway has very good sized double bedrooms either side, each with space for a wardrobe and one with a further built in cupboard and the other with space for bunk beds as well. The lounge can be found at the end of the hall and benefits from exposed beams and a modern fireplace. Steps down lead to the well fitted kitchen/breakfast room with built in electric oven and hob and space for an under-counter fridge and washing machine. The bathroom is similarly well finished with fully tiled walls, bath with electric shower over, sink with vanity cupboard under and chrome heated towel rail.
The apartment is a very beneficial inclusion with this opportunity and can easily be used as owners accommodation but equally would also be ideal for either short term holiday lets or a longer AST tenancy with either option bringing considerable additional revenue into the business.
