*** A1 fully Licenced Cafe and Bar*** The business has been running successfully for 9 years.
The business runs as a coffee shop / bar and selling a fantastic range of delicious homemade foods. They offer breakfasts, lunches and hot and cold snacks and prime wines in the newly refurbished premises. The business is highly popular and receives a generous amount of repeat trade and heavy footfall, thanks to the close proximity to Marylebone Station and several offices (including BNP Paribas) and schools.
The coffee shop generates a healthy turnover (full data available upon request). There is further potential to boost turnover by extending opening hours and by introducing happy hours to welcome workers when the offices close. The business closes at 5pm from Monday to Sunday. By opening later hours the new owner could look to offer an evening menu which should maximise trade.
The coffee shop has very little competition around offering not only coffee but also a wide variety of British, Mediterranean and European delicatessens.
The business has an exceptional reputation in the area and they also collaborate with local artists displaying their artwork in the shop.
This is a wonderful business in a beautiful position, a real lifestyle business with high levels of repeat trade. We highly advise early viewings to take in full potential of the trade.
