Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market Lake's Café and Lakes Sandwich Bar. The Café was established 7.5 years ago with the introduction of sandwich bar 2.5 years later.
The café is light and airy with seating for 24 covers internally with additional seating outside in the warmer months. The menu is varied serving a selection of hot and cold foods, breakfasts, salads, soups, rolls, pies and specials, all freshly prepared on site from the very well equipped kitchen.
Lake's sandwich bar operates from a charming pavilion offering hot and cold food with a great choice of hot and cold sandwich fillings. The business also has an external seating area with picnic tables, highly visible to passing trade.
The combined turnover is circa £163,500 for this financial year.
The businesses have a presence on social media websites with excellent reviews, and both see a high amount of repeat trade. We believe either could introduce sandwich deliveries to the vast amount of local businesses within the area to further income.
