Hilton Smythe are privileged to offer to the market Tea & Tiffin, an outstanding community driven cafe and coffee house. Established by our client in January 2018, the ‘Turn Key’ opportunity is now being sold due to other business responsibilities of our client who feels it would be easier to pass the business to someone new.
Our client invested in the region of £50,000 transforming the unit into a modern but comfortable cafe space which includes a secluded garden terrace space to the rear, ideal for private party bookings and afternoon teas.
This part of Leigh is widely known as an area which offers a good choice of different places to eat and relax, Tea & Tiffins has quickly established itself as one of the most prominent, offering home cooked meals, cakes and sandwiches with an emphasis on very good coffee and cold drink options.
Our client attracts both local retired residents, families and local business people/ tradesman with an option to either eat in or takeaway. Key selling points of the business include -
- A3 licence
- Dog friendly space
- Private ‘after hours’ party booking which now includes a unique flower wall in the rear garden, very popular with baby shower and hen party bookings
- Design led space makes the unit itself popular with photographers, local artists wanting to display their work and local clothing designers looking for pop up shop space
- Active Facebook and Instagram pages
- 5 star reviews on Tripadvisor and Facebook
- Unrivalled choice of homemade cakes
- Season menu changes,which includes a new Sunday lunch menu
- Potential to add an evening pop up bistro
- Uses locally sourced suppliers including renowned butchers and bakers’ products
Rarely do cafes of this standard, high decor standard and further potential come to the market in this thriving area and we therefore recommend early viewing to avoid disappointment.
The business is run and managed by our client with 2 x full time staff and extra part time help at the weekend.
MONDAY TO FRIDAY – 8.00am -3.00pm
SATURDAY – 9.00am – 4.00pm
