Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Cath’s Café.  This charming café has been established for over 50 years with our client successfully running the business since inception in 2012.

The business also offers a buffet and outside catering service for all special occasions, with a good choice of menus to suit all budgets, with deliveries not only within Burnley but also neighbouring towns and villages.  Included is a liveried delivery van.

The café is well presented and light and airy with 18 covers and free Wifi.  The kitchen is very well equipped and immaculately clean with the business boasting a 5 star food and hygiene rating.  In addition there is a 1 bedroom flat above the business which could be used as owner’s accommodation or equally let out to generate further income.
