The Tea Room occupies one of Brighton’s premium trading locations in the heart of the Brighton. It therefore benefits from a high footfall throughout the year, from both tourists and local residents. The café has been in the current vendor’s hands for just over two years and comes to the market due to the vendor’s wish to focus on other business opportunities. The owners and staff have created an excellent reputation, with first-rate reviews on Trip Advisor, Facebook and Google. The business has a 5-star FSA hygiene rating and at present the main food offering is afternoon teas, cakes, light meals and lunches.
THE PREMISES: The double fronted premises have been fitted to a high standard with all fixtures and fittings being owned outright by the vendor. The serve over counter is to the rear of the premises which is used to display cakes and other baked goods. The preparation and cooking areas are directly behind the counter with access to a small yard area to the rear of the premises used for the storage and collection of the waste bins. Adjacent to the counter is the customer toilet with wash hand basin.
The cafe provides inside seating for some 20 persons which can be easily increased to 23/24 when required and has additional alfresco seating on the forecourt for a further 6 persons.
