Torquay

£19,500 Leasehold + SAV
Print this Property

A wonderfully situated cafe which has been owned and operated for many years and is only now being placed onto the open market due to personal reasons. Centrally located with spacious owner’s accommodation above and only a stone's throw from the town centre, sea front and harbour. This coffee shop has a rustic, relaxed feel with comfortable seating and a double frontage that benefits from 2 large bay windows. It has nurtured a niche trade with loyal repeat custom, but we, the agents feel that there is tremendous scope for expansion by opening for longer hours and with a wider product range. Early viewings are highly recommended.

LOCATION

Ideally located in a prime secondary area of Torquay town centre, amongst a parade of independent retailers which enjoy a very heavy footfall and passing vehicle traffic. Lucius street is a sought-after trading area and is ideally situated within easy walking distance of the sea front and harbour. Free convenient parking is available opposite and the main train and bus station are within walking distance. The immediate area is well served with a mixture of schools, local trade, tourism and the main arterial road links connecting all parts of Devon and beyond are within easy access.

BUSINESS

This business has been owner occupied with part time assistance and has been marketed as a niche vegan and vegetarian establishment, however, we the agents feel that it could be expanded upon with a wider product/customer range. The business benefits from low overheads, owner’s self-contained one-bedroom accommodation above and a fair rent which makes it very attractive. The cafe is reluctantly being placed onto the open market due to personal reasons and the trading accounts will be made available following a formal successful viewing.

ACCOMMODATION
