Dawlish is an attractive seaside resort which together with Dawlish Warren occupies over four miles of South Devon coast between the mouth of the River Exe and the town of Teignmouth. There is an indigenous population of approximately 12,000 which increases substantially during the summer months when many tourists visit the area. Dawlish is located at the outlet of a small river, Dawlish Water (also called The Brook), between Permian red sandstone cliffs and is fronted by a sandy beach with the South Devon Railway sea wall and the Riviera Line railway above. Behind this is a central public park, The Lawn, through which Dawlish Water flows.
The Terrace Café is situated in an enviable location on the main strip leading to the beach and the railway station from the Town thus ensuring constant passing trade by foot and vehicle. The large glass frontage overlooks The Lawn and Dawlish Waters providing an attractive outlook for its customers. The café has been trading for circa 50 years with the current owner operating the business for the last three; they are now looking to retire. The Terrace Café offers a range of traditional café fayre freshly prepared in a 5 star hygiene rated environment. The customers order at the service counter with waitress service to the tables. This delightful café is run as a life style business with the owners opening daytimes only 8.30am – 3.30pm from Easter through to September closing for the rest of the year. However there is certainly a market for extending the operating months along with the hours traded. The commercial kitchen is well equipped and would suit a variety of catering uses.
