Description

There has been a café at this site for over twenty years and the business is well known to the locals and regulars alike. The current owner has run the business for approximately six months and has spent time and money replacing old equipment and upgrading; however, due to a wish to relocate and live by the sea the business has been reluctantly placed on the market.

The business prides itself on the quality of the ingredients used and sells breakfasts, breakfast sandwiches, breakfasts in a tray, lunches, daily specials, hot and cold sandwiches, rolls, wraps, baguettes and salad boxes, jacket potatoes and burgers as well as hot and cold drinks.

The business offers free delivery on orders over £15 from Wednesday to Saturday.

The business has a 5 star hygiene rating and a Facebook page with 85 likes and has many regular customers.
