This business opportunity is located in the heart of this popular suburb to the east of Newcastle City centre. Heaton Road is an area of mixed retail, commercial and residential properties and is popular with professionals, young families and students. Nearby occupiers include Sainsbury’s Local and a selection of good quality independent traders.
The location has operated as a café for over 5 years but the lease is on the market as our client is pursuing another unrelated career. The site traded successfully until March 2020 operating as an upmarket brunch bar and café with a menu comprising hot and cold drinks, snacks and sandwiches together with a selection of light meals. The menu could be developed to include more substantial foods and there is a separate kitchen facility with an extraction system.
The premises are attractively laid out to provide a service area plus a mixture of fixed bench seating together with tables and chairs. There are up to 35 covers and the fit and finish is to a good standard attracting a broad range of customers that included students, local workers and young mothers.
We are verbally informed that, when fully open with 7 day trading, sales were in excess of £4,000 weekly.
Viewing is recommended to appreciate this rare opportunity and the unutilised potential of the business.
