Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market the delightful Café 46. A popular café, the business is a favourite eatery in the village being very well supported by the local community as well as benefitting from boosted trade from the honeypot of visitors exploring this charming village. Café 46 is immaculately presented both externally and internally offering a stylish chic dining area with 30 covers with the bonus of the additional external seating. The business has seen year on year growth and now reports a healthy turnover of circa £118,000 per annum with a gross profit in the region of 70%. On the menu are light lunches, homemade soups and light breakfasts served throughout the day with the café specialising in Afternoon Tea’s with a large selection of freshly baked delicious homemade cakes, scones and biscuits accompanied by a wide range of specialist teas and coffees. The café is also licensed to serve wine, beer and cider. The business genuinely comes to the market as the current owners wish to pursue different career options. We believe the new owners have scope for developing the business further, perhaps, by introducing a sandwich delivery service in the area or extending opening hours into the evening and introducing a bistro style menu. Certainly, we feel the business would benefit from the introduction of a website. It already has a presence on social media website Facebook with nearly 260 likes. We highly recommend early viewing of this outstanding business in this most sought after location.
The business is owner run and managed with the assistance of 2 members of staff.
The business opens:-Monday to Saturday 9.00am – 5.00pmSunday closed.
