Business Description
As we understand a rare opportunity to play host to one of JK Rowlings former haunts where the world of Harry Potter emerged. This corner cafe and bistro is a spacious business with 4,500 sq ft on 1st floor level and sits within a Category B Listed building with its own dedicated entrance. The business operating for the last 10 years is located on Nicolson Street a main thoroughfare or arterial route to and from the City Centre. Positioned close to the National Museum, University Campuses and the Festival Theatre, footfall with or without tourists is strong.

Accessed from a wide low rise wooden stairwell the business opens out into a bright and spacious trading environment full of character and yielding a sense of informality. With room for over 80 covers it is full of character and whilst it portrays a warehouse look it functions more like a refectory, lounge and living room in one. With a mix of lounging areas to sit, from settees to wooden upright school chairs and wheel backed chairs, standard lamps to retro drop lights and a glass brick service counter the space is a crash on the senses but functioning quite perfectly with curtained partitioning splitting what is a vast trading area and kitchen space to the rear.

Operated by our clients for over 10 years, Spoon Cafe was moved from Blackfriars Street to the current destination to take advantage of a growing audience. Capable of hosting 70-90 covers the space is only limited by the operator and cuisine style. It would suit all types of cuisine from the buffet style operators, fine dining to specialist and with a museum, student and theatre audience on the doorstep the business would benefit from a 7 day operation (currently 6 day trading).
Location Details:
The business is located in Edinburgh's Old Town close to the Festival Theatre, Scottish Museum and Edinburgh University Campuses.
Leasehold Term:
We understand the business operates on the residue of a 20 year lease due to expire in 2029.
