Hilton Smythe are pleased to have been given the opportunity to manage the sale of The Kitchen Café & Bistro which is a well established Café / Bistro with a renowned reputation amongst local residents. This is a superb opportunity to take on a popular local business in an area teeming with customers.
There has been a café at these premises for approximately 13 years. The current owners have run it as the Kitchen Café & Bistro for the last two years or so and it has flourished under their ownership accruing many regular customers and a burgeoning reputation, the business has been a real labour of love for them.
The business is now being sold, albeit reluctantly and with heavy hearts only due to a wish to take a well earned retirement and spend more time with their families. The vendors are keen to see their beloved Café pass to an ambitious and entrepreneurial new owner (s) who can take this already thriving business to the next level.
The Kitchen Café & Bistro prides itself on the quality of its food which is freshly prepared on the premises using local ingredients wherever possible. The menu includes traditional staples such as:
- Breakfasts, ranging from the Little Kitchen to the Kitchen Works.
- Hot and cold drinks
- Beans and eggs on toast
- Cheese on toasts
- Hot and cold sandwiches
- Own boiled ham and chips
- Toasted tea cakes
