Property description

A delightful Cafe on Penzance's main thoroughfare enjoying consistent year round trade with a significant uplift in the Summer months with tremendous scope for growing the turnover as the current owners trade in the daytimes only owing to family commitments.

Location

The Quirky Bird Cafe is situated on Market Jew Street this being the principal thoroughfare within the vibrant Harbourside town of Penzance. Penzance is the largest town within West Cornwall with a resident population of approximately 20,000 and is a popular destination for tourists year round owing to its proximity to a number of well known land marks including St Michaels Mount and Lands End. Penzance is the termination point for the South West rail link to London Paddington in addition to being the departure point for the Scillonian Ferry which services the Isles of Scilly.

Description

The premises extend to approximately 450 sqft with a delightfully presented customer dining area which is adorned with an array of local arts and crafts work all of which is for sale and for which our clients receive commission.

The Quirky Bird is currently trading Monday through to Saturday in the daytimes only, serving a breakfast and lunch menu using where possible locally sourced produce and they offer a selection of hot food, gourmet sandwiches and wraps etc in addition to a range of hot and cold beverages, home made desserts and cakes which are available to purchase for outside events and our client currently supplies other retail outlets within the town.

The accounts for the year ending 30th April 2017 show sales of circa £60,000 And it is felt that there is an opportunity to grow the turnover further through extending the opening hours, in addition to obtaining a Premises Licence to sell alcohol.
