Hilton Smythe are delighted to present to the market The Gorgeous Kitchen, a thriving daytime cafe established by our client in early 2017.  The business is now reluctantly offered for sale due to the other business interests our client has in his own country and a quick sale is required.

The much loved cafe attracts both residents, students and their parents, builders and contractors, local office and retail workers and is especially busy with local the Italian and Spanish community who have also used the cafe for private parties and birthday celebrations.

The menu is particularly popular with those customers seeking a good value large breakfast and is very busy with local builders and tradesmen from 7 onwards, all breakfasts are cooked to order to ensure the best quality. There is also a large choice of sandwiches, omelettes, salads and lunch time specials on the wall mounted menu boards to choose from. All menu items can be enjoyed inside the cafe of prepared for takeaway.

Our client confirms he is running the business to suit now and there are many opportunities for a new owner, these could include -

  • Extending the hours to include an evening Bistro menu, there is high demand for a good value set menu of either 2 or 3 courses. This could be pre booked to avoid any unnecessary wastage.
  • Offer deliveries through delivery partners such as ‘Just Eat/ Deliveroo’
  • Re- advertise the cafe as a local venue for private dinners and small parties
  • Re-locate the extraction hood to the rear wall to upgrade the cafe from A1 to A3
  • Add outside catering services
  • Introduce a new website, Facebook page and Instagram social media presence 
  • Utilise the large downstairs stockroom/ office into the main kitchen or additional seating area for customers
The business is priced to sell and cafes of this standard in the East Woolwich area rarely come to market and therefore early viewing is recommended to avoid disappointment.
