Hilton Smythe Commercial are delighted to welcome Clarendon Cafe to the market, which was established by our client approximately 9 years ago, and has been under her careful control since.
The businesses location ensures that it receives a high level of new custom due to the footfall within the area, and in addition to this, the business has numerous loyal customers and has developed a somewhat of an enviable reputation for quality food and excellent customer service.
The cafe caters for a variety of diets and cuisines ranging from traditional cafe style meal, venturing into both Persian and Mediterranean meals. The cafe also offers a wide selection of beverages, both hot and cold and daily specials.
The business is very much thriving in its current position, however, the turnover could be improved upon with the introduction of deliveries to local businesses at lunchtime, and the development of a catering arm to compliment the current business.
In addition to the above, the cafe is also licensed to serve alcohol until 22:30, along with being licensed to provided entertainment. This provides scope for the new owners to improve on the current opening hours and possibly consider providing some themed evenings in which there could be some light entertainment, and alcohol served to compliment meals. In the alternative, the cafe could extend its opening hours to cater for the later night trade, that will inevitably be in the area due to its town centre location.
The cafe has only reluctantly been offered for sale as our client moves abroad, but in view of timescales the business has been priced for a quick sale and therefore early viewing is highly recommended.

The business currently trades:
