Additional Information

The Cafe

The Café has become an intrinsic part of this thriving business and creates the buzz associated with a popular meeting place.

There is dedicated seating for eighteen, where a “Pappy’s” cake can be enjoyed with tea or coffee and a friendly chat. For those on the move the takeaway option is always a convenient solutioThe seating area is adjacent to the bakery counter with it’s well stocked shelves and modern display and serve over cabinets and counters. There is a hot food counter with preparation and cooking facilities (A list of equipment, fixtures and fittings can be viewed elsewhere in the brochure.)

For those seeking to build on the established café business a portion of the balance sheet can be viewed subject to completion of an NDA.

Bakery & Ancillary Areas

To the rear of the Café but with a largely unused retail frontage, is the engine room of the operation. Here we have the well equipped bakery, preparation and store rooms. There is a yard to the rear, housing the freezer bay and providing access for deliveries.

The intention is to remove the bakery equipment and to relocate to the wholesale operation, however the vendor will negotiate should that be a requirement of a prospective purchaser.

By amalgamating these areas with the existing retail space, we have approximately 1200 sq. ft. of potential retail space with an additional window providing a double frontage to the Main Street. This offers exceptional  potential for those with their own plan to utilize the retail potential of the property.

The Main Street frontage is approximately 50 feet and with a second shop window this would open up valuable retail space or provide room for the existing café to grow and the signature brand could be retained by arrangement.

The Apartment

The first floor two bedroom apartment will provide a well proportioned range of accommodation with a separate Main Street entrance. This area provides even more potential and could be incorporated into the commercial space or used as an ancillary area to the current operations.           

As an apartment the purchaser can enjoy the additional investment income, or we could have a live in owner seeking to benefit from accommodation savings.
