Hilton Smythe is delighted to present to the market a thriving coffee shop opportunity located in the desirable area of Shoreditch.

The ‘turn-key’ business was established by our client 3 years ago who is now looking to sell to allow him to concentrate on his other business interests.

Our client invested over £180,000 in transforming the corner unit with beautifully bespoke furniture, counter units, lighting and decoration, storage and display units and high quality equipment.

The business is currently trading as Di Stefano Coffee however any new owner will need to change the name on transfer.

The business currently offers a wide range of fresh pastries, sandwiches, salads, focaccia, ice cream, bean to cup coffees and juices. Our client had previously offered a wider range of hot food to both enjoy inside and to takeaway which included authentic Italian pizzas and pasta dishes. The business also has an alcohol license in place.

We are advised the business attracts a healthy mix of customer types from local residents, office workers, retail staff and visitors simply looking to enjoy the eclectic vibe of the area.

As you can see from the business photographs attached, the business can offer both internal customer seating as well as two small terraces on both Hackney Road and Tabernacle Gardens.

Currently the majority of the business is derived from takeaway sales however there is significant opportunity in increasing the sit in trade, especially if any new owner looks to add an evening bistro menu.

The business is currently being run to suit with reduced opening hours, we are advised previously the sales consistently achieved a minimum of £5,000 per week.
