An opportunity to acquire this well-established café situated in the heart of Dronfield which has built up an excellent reputation with a large and loyal customer base.

  • Established business with excellent potential for growth and expansion
  • Beautifully appointed prime premises with courtyard seating to the rear
  • Fully equipped and stocked to operate immediately

Only available due to the owner’s retirement, a viewing is essential to appreciate the opportunity on offer.

Location:          The premises are well situated in a prominent and accessible location within the town centre of Dronfield, a highly popular residential location situated close to the city of Sheffield, and the market town of Chesterfield, being the second-largest settlement in Derbyshire, after Derby.

More specifically the premises are situated on High Street in the heart of the town centre, close to the Civic Centre.

Description:      The business is established within deceptively spacious stone-built premises of some character, which are attractively appointed and have been fitted out to an excellent specification to provide a contemporary and welcoming café.

The café provides an excellent homemade offering covering breakfasts that are locally renowned for quality, morning coffee, lunches & light bites, and afternoon teas, and a variety of options for everything in between with a range of delicious homemade cakes.

The current layout provides for approximately 30 covers inside, with an additional 10-12 covers in the delightful covered courtyard to the rear which can be enjoyed in all weathers. This can be separately accessed providing an excellent option for dog walkers to call in for a pit stop, and there is also potential to expand the courtyard seating area further which has been discussed with the landlord in the past which could easily double the available space.

The ground floor comprises of a bespoke counter upon which the excellent variety of cakes and sweet treats on offer are displayed, and is fully equipped for drinks and cooking ensuring the café is very easy to manage from the counter.

There is seating to the front area surrounding the counter, with access to the side of the counter and beyond providing access to the courtyard to the rear, and the first floor seating area. To the first floor is additional seating, together with the WC facilities.

Over the years the café has gained an enviable reputation – currently with a 4.8 star rating on google, and a 4.8 star rating on Facebook - with an ever expanding and loyal customer base as well as many new customers. There is also an ideal opportunity to expand the current offering to include an evening menu, either on a full-time basis, or perhaps for special or themed events on a regular or semi-regular basis.  

Business:          Whilst the business has been impacted by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the current owners have adapted to the ever-changing conditions beautifully, and therefore the business is for sale providing a rare and exciting opportunity to acquire an already successful business with excellent potential for growth as desired, and which has performed very consistently over many years.

                        The business is run very efficiently by the current owner with minimal staffing, providing an excellent opportunity for growth.
