A 40 plus seater café ideally located in the heart of the Cathedral city of Exeter, Devon. This easily owner operated business currently trades very successfully between the hours of 08.00am – 4.30pm, so there is huge potential to expand on the existing trade by offering early evening service. There are no opening restrictions and the premises could even cater for late night take-aways, having a separate door to front which would be ideal for this purpose. With a good-sized kitchen and wash up area together with a large courtyard to rear, this is an opportunity not to be missed....


The café is located just off Cathedral yard, which lies in the very heart of the city of Exeter, Devon. Exeter is a densely populated/affluent city and benefits from one the country’s best Universities. Immediately outside the business is convenient short-term parking and it is serviced well by a bus stop to all parts of the city. Also nearby is the M5 motorway and International airport as well as a main-line train station connecting Paddington London and all parts of the UK. Nearby are many quality schools, college and only 20 minutes away is the coast with fantastic beaches and leisure facilities.


The business is operated by a mother and daughter team together with part time assistance. Opening only six days per week with limited opening hours to suit our clients’ lifestyle. However, there is tremendous scope to expand with longer opening hours, additional days’ trading, outside catering and even a pop-up restaurant in the evening. Early viewings are highly recommended. Actual trading accounts will be made available following a successful formal viewing.
