Business Partnership is pleased to have been appointed as sole selling agent in order to seek a purchaser for this very well positioned business, which has only been made available for sale due to a genuine wish to retire.

Ideally located in a very popular town very close to the seafront, there has been a coffee shop at this site for many years, our clients took over the site around 4 years ago and completely refurbished the premises and created what can only be described as a Mediterranean inspired beautiful Bistro, with an eclectic mix of high quality fixtures and fittings.

Award winning, very busy and very successful are all the words you would want to hear if you are looking to venture into the world of catering, be it your first steps into this industry or if you are a seasoned professional this site really has huge potential and is a real turnkey opportunity.

The cafe bistro serves artisan, single origin coffee from the high quality La Marzocco coffee machine and the food menu is influenced by the owners Mediterranean origins; all food is freshly prepared in the professional kitchen located on-site.

They can provide corporate lunches, including take-away and do also offer a private dining experience, the premises are fully licensed. They can accommodate 24 covers inside and have space for around 16 covers outside.

The business is run by the two owners and 3 other staff, two full and one part time, due to ill health the owners unfortunately are unable to continue within the business. 

We strongly recommend that any seriously interested party make contact with us as soon as possible.
