Pistachios café, East Greenwich Pleasance is an award-winning Green Flag public park with a playground, table tennis and childrens in south East London.
It has a large outdoor space and is thriving in the current climate as people can sit outside.
As a lovely community café, we know all the regular customers and strive to make all new customers feel welcome. The cafe is an important part of the local community and we show this in our relationships, if you pop in you will see our notice board which reflects the central part it plays in the many events which take part in this tiny park.
Our customers cover a broad spectrum but are mainly a mixture of dog walkers, parents from the local schools, new parents with babies and the local children who feel comfortable to practice their first experience of purchasing and eating with their friends in the safety of their local café with the café staff who know them well.
You will need to love the café as I will only sell to people who I know will love the cafe as much as I do so you really will need to love the cafe life. Our customers have an enthusiasm for events…. The scope is huge for organising community friendly activities such as pop up supper clubs, outdoor cinema, BBQs and special event parties which are supported by the local council.
We pride ourselves on healthy foods, no fried foods here, and there is a lot of space for creativity in this area.
We have a buzzy atmosphere, play music, sometimes live music and we have an alcohol licence which is an essential for summer relaxing - for me and the customers.
Our customers are friendly and personal, and I have forged many friendships that I will never be without, these are not customers they are family and we support each other equally. They even help out sometimes with the washing up and serving if we are particularly busy.
The café is full of laughter and sometimes tears, as is life, and you grow together as a community, watching little ones grow up and see relationships grow or not grow sometimes.
As the owner of this café you will be very lucky to have such wonderful and supportive customers who will come in to check on you and you on them. It is a wonderfully positive experience to be involved with and I feel lucky to have been given the opportunity run this café since its beginnings for the past 10 years.
I am two minds about moving on, but I feel that the café needs new life, someone who can take it to the next level with events and creativity and to give it new energy and ideas. I feel it needs a renewed motivation for all things fun…this café could really grow into a central hub. We need the perfect person to take it to the next level and it will be exciting so see this happen.
Someone fun, creative and family minded would be perfect. And your reward will be long hot summers sitting outside in the park chatting and laughing with your new customer friends and knowing you are serving healthy fresh meals and coffees to friendly faces.
Whilst deciding if this is for you, you need to think of it as Lifestyle purchase whereby you will be buying a 12 year lifestyle change and income, re day one on completion.
Don't think of how much you are paying for it, think of 12 years of working for your self, working in a beautiful idyllic settings, great community. And once the lease expires you can hopefully renew as I have done, resale the cafe or carry on..
