Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market the White Orchid Café.
The business has been operated by the current owner for over two years in which it has built up a steady and reliable clientele with an enviable reputation for quality and service.
Due to health reasons this rare and exciting opportunity has now become available.
The business benefits from its location and accessibility as well as its excellent menu options giving the customer a wide and varied choice which includes all the breakfast staples plus a range of tasty meals from their lunch menu which is served until 2pm.
The site has been completely refurbished with the benefit of two trading areas with a counter and stool seating to the front as well as tabled seating to the rear with over 40 covers in total.
The business has been trading limited hours and therefore has huge growth potential, the current owner has previously organised theme nights and special events which due to the size and layout of the site plus the spacious kitchen facility is something the new operator could expand on, with the option of opening later in the evening as a Bistro if so desired.
The café has a wide customer base and currently attracts the bulk of its trade from the surrounding businesses and offers the opportunity for the new owner to tap into this customer base further tweaking the menu and food offering putting their own spin on things to take the site to the next level.
The café has scope for further expansion with additional space to the rear of the site and is a prime location with passing trade and students alike popping by.
