This ideally positioned café for sale is situated in one of the prime locations of Exeter. It trades very successfully and would ideally suit a husband and wife/partnership without the need of many staff, if any! It benefits from outside seating together with an array of tables and various bench and chair seating inside. The dining area is atmospheric, with rustic panel clad walls, original wood flooring and to the rear, a smaller prep kitchen, WC and servery counter/takeaway to front. This is an opportunity not to be missed and early viewings are highly recommended....


The business is situated on Queen Street, Exeter, directly opposite Marks and Spencer, Guildhall eating quarter and Guildhall carpark is nearby. With an impressive passing footfall from first thing in the morning until late at night due to various restaurants, clubs, shops and Exeter Central railway station being only one hundred meters away.  The Cathedral city of Exeter is an ancient city on the River Exe in southwest England. Dating back to the Roman era, the Exeter City walls surround its centre and Gothic Exeter Cathedral. With a world-renowned University, International Airport and mainline train to Paddington station, this is a beautiful and sought-after place to live.


Devon Coffee has been operating successfully by the owner with part-time assistance when required, and is only now reluctantly being placed on the open market.  It trades extremely well selling hot and cold drinks together with a simple snack menu generating an impressive turnover and subsequent net profit. Trading hours from approx. 09.00 am – 4.00 pm but with enormous scope to expand earlier and later in the day. A large volume of potential customers walk past the premises from 07.00 in the morning until approximately 10.00 in the evening. There is an opportunity to create a takeaway window to the front and possibly provide crepes or simple takeaway dishes to the passing public, which would increase the already impressive turnover. A comprehensive handover will be provided to the purchaser. Actual trading accounts will be made available following a successful formal viewing.
