The business for sale is an established family café in Wakefield, West Yorkshire, offering a wide range of hot drinks, such as varieties of teas, and drinks made with the finest freshly ground coffee.
Available are snacks, light meals, breakfast and dinner all of which are home-made with fresh ingredients. In addition, the coffee house serves afternoon tea, with delicious home-made cakes.
The sale also includes 2 high-quality apartments, one of which is currently rented out and the other used as living accommodation by the current business owner. The café is now available on a leasehold basis and is only up for sale due to the current owner’s impending retirement.

Through the entrance, there is a large open plan seating area, with 40 covers.

Beyond the shop floor, there is a large storage and preparation room. Above the business, there are 2 apartments, both with a similar layout comprised of 2 bedrooms, a kitchen/diner and bathroom. All equipment is contained within the sale, to include the coffee machine and all fixtures and fittings including tables and chairs.
Currently, the business is successful with only word of mouth as its promotion meaning it can be further profited from extra advertising. The business could increase marketing by implementing further social media platforms. This would give the business further exposure along with the opportunity to market to a wider audience.
The business currently does not have an alcohol licence, if wanted; the buyer could purchase one in order to offer alcohol as a way of creating a unique service to the archetypical cafe.
The current owners are willing to stay on for a period of time if a transitional period is needed.
