Hilton Smythe are delighted to present to the market Boyce Da Roca, a quirky, individual cafe/bistro business located in the heart of bustling Streatham. Established by our client just over 8 years ago, the ‘Turn-key’ business opportunity is now being offered for sale due to our client’s decision to now relocate from London.
The cafe - bistro - bar comes with a 7-day alcohol licence in place which permits alcohol sales up to 12 am on Friday / Saturday (highly desirable for this location).
The business concentrates on a daytime operation, offering an unrivalled choice of breakfast, brunches & lunches, sandwiches, ethical coffees, teas and fresh juices as well as ever changing choice of daily specials. All made using the best ingredients they can source and prepared fresh each day. The menu includes some of the following favourites with a twist -
- Homemade Granola.
- Avocado on sourdough with spinach.
- Traditional English, Vegan breakfast, Toasties.
- Eggs benedict, Eggs Royale or Turkish eggs.
- Hot & cold coffee, teas & hot chocolate.
- Organic soft drinks, smoothies, juices & shakes.
- Freshly made cakes, pastries and flapjacks.
- Full list of red & white wines, beers and cocktails.
The business is currently focused on walk in customers only, attracting a very loyal local customer base of both young professionals, families, students and creative people. There is excellent feedback and goodwill to be included as well as active Facebook Page.
- 4.9/5 Facebook review score.
- 4.7/5 Google review score average.
Our client admits he runs the business to suit and there are many areas any new buyer could easily add to significantly increase current sales levels. These include -
- Extending opening hours (both in the morning to attract the commuter coffee/breakfast trade and in the evening to attract more of a bar/bistro clientele).
- Advertise venue for private parties, weddings and birthdays.
- Add a regular Supper club.
- Add deliveries (Deliveroo, Uber & Just Eat).
- Offer complete menu hire (including location venue for TV/Films).
- Add an outside catering service.
- Add Cocktail making & tasting evenings.
- Increase covers by adding some higher window seating as well as increase number of outside tables in the summer.
Very rarely do business with this level of individuality, size and location come onto the open market in this ever-changing area and we therefore highly recommend early viewing to avoid disappointment.Location
