About this property
The business is prominently located, adjacent to the historic Newport Arch, providing an entrance to the Bailgate Shopping Area, one of Lincoln’s most historic streets, with a range of independent boutiques, shops and restaurants.
Located just off the Bailgate within a highly prominent location, we are delighted to offer for sale this beautifully equipped Coffee Shop Business, which has become popular with local residents and tourists, given that it is situated in a prime residential area, close to the Bailgate and tourist attractions including the Cathedral and Castle. In addition to the busy daytime trade, there is potential to extend opening hours to further grow income, if desired.
The current owners have created a highly successful coffee shop and eatery, which is fully equipped to professional catering standards and fitted-out to a style and contemporary specification, which can accommodate approximately 18 covers internally, together with a further external seating area providing an additional 10 covers, which could be extended if required.
In addition to the main open-plan Kitchen and Dining Area, there is a useful storeroom and customer WC fitted to a high specification.
A full inventory of fixtures and fittings is available on request to interested parties.
