A 40 plus seater newly refurbished café lounge with outdoor seating to the front and bar counter. The property is ideally located in the heart of the Cathedral city of Exeter, Devon. This easily owner operated business currently trades successfully between the hours of 09.00am–2.30 pm, so there is huge potential to expand on the existing trade by offering early evening and there is no opening restrictions which would allow an operator to cater for late night trade
With a separate door to front but also interlinked via the café lounge, this offers a mainly pizza and kebab take-away service which could be daytime, evening and night-time. This take-away uses Deliveroo and Just Eat which trades in a separate company
The café lounge and take-away is located just off Cathedral yard, which lies in the very heart of the city of Exeter, Devon. Exeter is a densely populated/ affluent city and benefits from one the country’s best Universities. Immediately outside the business is convenient short-term parking and it is serviced well by a bus stop to all parts of the city. Also nearby is the M5 motorway and International airport as well as a main-line train station connecting Paddington London and all parts of the UK. Nearby are many quality schools, college and only 20 minutes away is the coast with fantastic beaches and leisure facilities.
The business is operated by a partnership together with part time assistance when required. Trading as “My Way Café” and “Roma Pizzeria” and opening only six days per week with limited opening hours to suit our clients’ lifestyle. However, there is tremendous scope to expand with longer opening hours, additional days’ event parties, outside catering and even a pop-up restaurant in the evening. Early viewings are highly recommended. Actual trading accounts will be made available following a successful formal viewing.
