Hilton Smythe are pleased to have been given the opportunity to manage the sale of Café Jackalope which is a well established café / Coffee shop with a renowned reputation amongst local residents. This is a superb opportunity to take on a popular and well used local business in an area teeming with customers.

Café Jackalope was founded by the current owner in 2017 when she identified the need for a quality and more upmarket coffee shop in the area and the business has been a real labour of love for her accruing an impressive number of regular customers and a burgeoning reputation.

The business is now being sold, albeit reluctantly and with a heavy heart only due to the need to relocate due to family commitments. The vendor is keen to see her beloved Café passed to an ambitious and entrepreneurial new owner (s) who can take this already thriving business to the next level.

The business prides itself on the quality of its food which is freshly prepared on the premises using local ingredients wherever possible. The business benefits from an A3 licence. The menu includes;

  • Brunch
  • Smashed avocado, halloumi, and chorizo
  • Hot and cold drinks
  • Soya and almond milks
  • Joes Bakery artisan breads
  • Hot and cold sandwiches
  • Polenta
  • Toasted tea cakes
  • Delicious homemade Cakes and pastries
  • Vegan and gluten free options
  • Daily specials
Additionally, the business showcases local artist’s work on its walls and sells their prints and also sells homemade jewellery and cards.

The business has an impressive number of regular customers, many of whom are known on a first name basis by the current owner who is a popular and well respected member of the local community.

The sale will include the company website ( cafejackalope.com ), Facebook and Twitter pages and the business enjoys great visibility on the internet via websites such as www.tripadvisor.co,uk, www.yell.com, www.192.com, restaurantguru.com, www.slurpy.co.uk.

The business boasts a fantastic reputation, enjoying top star ratings on Google of 4.9 and 5 on Facebook.

  • Introduce occasional markets and pop up events
  • Explore online delivery options from the likes of just Eat, Uber eats and Deliveroo etc

  • Develop the outside catering side of the business.
Reasons to Buy

  • A well established business with an enviable reputation and many existing customers
  • Prime trading position on a busy main road with little or no competition locally
  • Low running costs with inexpensive rent and no business rates
  • Current owner happy to offer a handover to ensure the continued success

The business is run and managed by our client with the help of two part time members of staff.

Normal opening hours are:
Tuesday to Saturday 09.00 – 16.00
Sunday 10.00 – 15.00

The business is open and operating as take away only for the time being due to the current COVID-19 situation.

Café Jackalope is located in the Horfield area of Bristol.

Horfield is a suburb of the city of Bristol, in southwest England. It lies on Bristol’s northern edge, it’s border with Filton marking part of the boundary between Bristol and South Gloucestershire.

The Gloucester Road (A38) runs north / south through the suburb and is a well known, independent trading area, in the middle of a desirable residential area , full of young families, professionals and students due to its location close to the University of West England.

The business is beautifully presented and fastidiously maintained with a pleasing upmarket feel and clear visible signage and distinctive livery. The business sits alongside other complimentary retail businesses, many of which are interesting independents and thus benefits from high levels of footfall and passing trade along with regular custom.

There is free on street parking close to the business.

Inside the premises is a beautiful ‘rabbit warren’ of rooms made up of 4 different seating areas of approx. 35 covers, and a further 12 covers in the beautiful quiet back garden, and on the front pavement combined.

The cafe is decorated to the highest spec throughout and due to the nature of the various areas, creates space for different experiences for customers, whether it's watching the world go by in the bright open window seats, or playing a game of cards in the cosy ‘snug’ room. All food preparation currently is made behind the counter in front of customers, but there is space in the back-stock room, perhaps to expand food prep.

All fixtures and fittings included making this a real Turnkey business opportunity including the beautiful La Marzocco Linea PB 2 Group coffee machine and Mythos 1 Grinder.

We are advised that Café Jackalope is being sold as a leasehold business opportunity.

The existing lease expires in May 2022 and we are advised that the landlord would be happy to negotiate a mutually acceptable lease with a new owner.

The current rent is £8496 per annum which is reasonable given the size and location of the premises.

We are advised that the business benefits from being exempt from business rates.
