A wonderfully presented and highly successful café/tearoom, located in the very heart of the much sought after seaside town of Paignton, Devon. Occupying probably the most advantageous locations of the town and taking advantage of a very high vehicular and pedestrian foot traffic. Currently trading daytime hours only. This large approx. 75 / 80-seater business with pavement seating which can make serious income over a small number of hours but because of our client’s health, this has not been exploited for many years. It offers a wide range of hot and cold drinks with simple faire of food, but which could easily be expanded on. It benefits from two serveries, a take-away immediately when entering (not in use) and a second within the dining


The business is ideally located on the corner of the busy Hyde Road and the main High Street with bus/train station approx. 50 metres away. This strategically located business enjoys a commercially important position within Paignton together with both all year-round regular trade which swells during the summer months by the influx of tourism. With only minutes’ walk to the beach and harbour front, this is truly an enviable / visible property frontage.


Maison’s café has been established successfully for many years and is trading successfully owner operated with part time assistance when required. It is only being placed on to the open market because of health reasons and the business is operating only daytime hours and not even with the take-away counter to the front. We the agents feel there is great opportunity to expand on the existing turn-over with improved layout, improved marketing, better lighting and longer opening hours. Actual trading accounts will be made available following a successful formal viewing.
