A well-known corner café with enough space for 45 covers. It has been successfully owner operated for over 22 years and is open during daytime hours between 8am-3pm. Genos benefits from low overheads and a new negotiable length lease. The dining area is surrounded by a wall of windows making the area bright and airy. Geno's also has a pavement licence that provides an additional 12 covers. The business is well equipped and decorated to an overall good standard. This easily run business comes with a comprehensive hand over to ensure continued success and early viewings are highly recommended.


Located in Torre, which is within the heart of Torquay, the area benefits from high footfall, passing traffic and convenient free and pay & display parking nearby. Nearby is Torquay’s main train and bus stations with links to all parts of the UK. The town centre, beach and harbour are only minutes’ walk away. The city of Torquay is a vibrant busy seaside resort which brings in many tourists during the summer months.


The business is operated by a husband and wife team with one part time assistant when required. The opening hours are only from 8am – 3pm daily with a simple standard café menu which could be expanded. With a later closing time, we the agent believe the already impressive turn-over would be increased. With no business rates applicable, low rental and overheads, this business generates a good income and affords the owners with an enviable lifestyle.
