Business Description
Hilton Smythe are pleased to have been given the opportunity to manage the sale of Caf3 which is a well established Café / Coffee Shop with a renowned reputation amongst local residents. This is a superb opportunity to take on a popular local business in an area teeming with customers.

Caf3 was founded approximately 5 years and the current owners have run it successfully and lucratively for the last year and it has flourished under their ownership with many regular customers and a burgeoning reputation.

Alas the business is now being sold, albeit reluctantly and with heavy hearts only so that the owners can pursue a change in direction, they are keen to see their beloved café pass to an ambitious and entrepreneurial new owner (s) who can take this already thriving business to the next level.

Caf3 serves a range of food that is freshly prepared on the premises using local ingredients wherever possible, the menu includes:

  • Breakfasts

Caf3 is located in the Llanrumney area of Cardiff, the capital city of Wales.

Llanrumney is a district, suburb, community and electoral ward in the east of Cardiff.

The area is predominantly comprised of densely populated residential housing which is mainly Council and is bounded by the wards of Pontprennau & Old St. Mellon’s to the north, Rumney to the south, Penylan to the southwest, and Pentwyn to the west. The electoral ward of Llanrumney falls within the parliamentary constituency of Cardiff South and Panarth.

Cardiff Bus services 49 and 50 serve the area, buses run frequently between Central Station. Route 101 links Llanrumney, along with a number of other local suburbs, to the Heath Hospital. The area is currently accessible only via various junctions along Newport Road, which also connects the suburb to the city centre to the south west and St.Mellons, the A48(M) and Newport to the north east.

Caf3 is ideally positioned in a small but unusually busy and vibrant shopping parade and sits alongside other complimentary retail businesses such as a convenience store, beauty salon, barbers and a tanning shop and thus benefits from high levels of footfall and passing trade along with regular custom.

The business is beautifully presented and maintained with clear visible signage and distinctive livery. There is free on street parking immediately outside the premises.

Double fronted with windows and glazed door to front creating a light, airy and inviting interior, generous café and beautifully presented with expensive looking tiled floor, suspended ceiling, nice quality tables and chairs , comfy seating area with 2 leather effect sofas and low table, long counter with storage beneath and complimentary black worktop.
