Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Molly’s, For Sale after a short time owing to our clients wish to focus on other business interests.
A contemporary modern coffee shop and cafe, serving the local and wider community. Imaginative menus prepared and cooked by a full-time chef, offering quality locally sourced produce from Breakfast menus, to tea, coffee, cakes and afternoon tea and scones, as well as a popular bistro style menu of traditional staples. There is also the added bonus of a separate and successful outside catering business, providing buffets, and lunches to regular and repeat local corporate clientele.
A cafe premises for many years and locally renowned with a valued and long standing regular repeat customer base, our vendor has managed to quickly build upon this, although not in their ownership for very long. There is a good online and social media presence including Facebook and TripAdvisor.
