Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market the award winning café known as Café Society of Byram Street, Huddersfield. A café business has been on site for over 10 years and our client has owned for the last 6years. The owner is now reluctantly selling for family reasons.
The business caters for 70 covers on the ground and first floors.
The café has an outstanding 1940's theme with décor and ambience to match.
The excellent menu includes breakfasts, lunches, specials, quality hot and cold sandwiches, quesadillas, wraps, paninis, salad bowls, soups, jacket potatoes, omelettes, light bites, snacks, toasties, cakes, ices and hot and cold drinks as well as an extensive kid's menu. There is also a great range of gluten free options, with the staff providing assistance with food allergies or intolerances.
The business is exceptionally clean and tidy.
