Hilton Smythe is delighted to present to the market Poppy’s Coffee Shop, a very well-established coffee shop/sandwich takeaway business set within the heart of this desirable town.

The business was established over 17 years ago and is now being made available for sale due to our clients decision to now semi-retire.

The ‘turn-key’ opportunity attracts a very loyal customer base with many retired and local shop/office workers visiting throughout the week and more family groups at the weekend.

The business is renowned for its traditional breakfasts, freshly made sandwiches, lunchtime specials, homemade cakes and salad bar all realistically priced.

Our client also offers celebration afternoon teas - especially popular for Mother’s Day!

Our client currently concentrates on breakfast and lunchtime menu which includes the following choices -

  • Traditional cooked breakfasts
  • Made to order sandwiches, wraps & baguettes
  • Toasted sandwiches, paninis & wraps
  • Filled jacket potatoes
  • Homemade hearty soups
  • Daily choice of hot meat filled sandwiches
  • Large salad bar
  • Lunchtime specials - such as lasagne, cheese & onion pie,
  • Quiches, sausage rolls, pasties, samosa’s,
  • Cakes - such as red velvet, salted caramel & chocolate hazelnut, earl grey & lemon

  • Gluten free & Dairy free cakes - such as courgette & avocado
  • Bean to cup fresh coffees, luxury hot chocolates & teas
  • Milkshakes & soft drinks
  • Children's menu
As you can see in the business images attached, the cafe enjoys a large outside terrace area (which could be further expanded) and we are advised the current sales mix is divided 70% sit in and 30% takeaway.

Many of the takeaway customers pre-call the business to ensure quicker collection.

Our client admits she now runs the business to suit and even though some outside catering work is taken on, she turns away many requests.
