Hilton Smythe are delighted to present to the market Lazy Peach, a recently refurbished cafe bar with a 7-day alcohol licence and unique, contemporary interior allowing any new buyer the ability to walk straight in and carry on trading.
Currently the business is run to suit due to health reasons and we believe the quality of the equipment installed would allow for many additional menu options not currently being offered.
The cafe and kitchen were completely ripped out and new services, equipment, furniture, lighting, storage, retail display space installed.
The current menu comes with an ethical and Asian led menu offering the following:
- Asian Fusion food.
- Loose Leaf Teas.
- Beers, Cocktails & Wine.
- Fresh juices.
- Events venue.
The community led business attracts a loyal base of local customers, families, local shop workers and professionals. Looking to either eat, drink or hire out the space for group events such as Pilates, Local Artist exhibitions and new product displays.
Our client had previously added pop up menu evenings, inviting small groups for tastings, cocktails and product launches.
We would recommend any new buyer further develop the involvement of the diverse community by adding any of the following:
- Reading/ Knitting groups.
- Kim Shi workshops.
- Pilates/ Yoga classes.
- Supper clubs.
- Karaoke parties.
- Baby shower/ Hen party gatherings.
- Private birthday parties.
- More local artist launch events.
- Pop up set menu evenings.
- Meeting space.
- Cocktail making classes.
The business comes with an updated Facebook page (with 106 likes), Instagram and Twitter page as well links to local community sites and platforms.
We are advised our client will offer a full business handover to allow a smooth transition to any new owner.
Very rarely do cafes/ bistro spaces in this area of this high standard come onto the open market and we therefore strongly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.Location
