Coffee & Cake Shop

Sunderland £34,950 Leasehold (fees apply) REF: NE1325


This business is located within a busy parade on the main road running north / south through Grangetown from the City centre.  Grangetown is now a developing and popular suburb with a range of retail, commercial and leisure accommodation serving a densely populated residential area. Nearby occupiers include a Post Office and the premises are opposite a busy bus stop interchange.


A coffee house business has been trading from the site since 2016 but has been placed on the market as the owners wish to spend more time with their family.

The property was fully refurbished in 2016 and then opened as an up market coffee house and tea rooms.  In the last 9 months the business has developed further and whilst the menu comprises a broad range of hot and cold drinks, snacks and sandwiches the business is now renowned for its home-made cakes. The business attracts customers that includes residents, families, local workers and young mothers and people travel from throughout the region to sample the produce.  The clients also take private functions including birthdays, baby showers and christenings.  There is scope to open longer hours and on a Sunday where a lunch service is likely to prove very popular.

The premises are attractively laid out over two floors and the ground floor offers a service area with tables and chairs for up to 20 covers plus a kitchen.  To the first floor there is another space, ideal for private parties, which provides another 20 covers plus toilet facilities and overall the fit and finish is to a high standard.

An early viewing is recommended to appreciate this rare opportunity and the unutilised potential of the business.
