This outstanding cafe/restaurant opportunity is available in the heart of Greenock town centre. The former Browns Cafe was an extremely busy business which has been run by the most recent proprietor since 2006 before closing in 2019 due to ill health.
The business was well established and had built up a reputation for being one of the area's best places to enjoy a light meal or lunch with friends, building up an excellent reputation for traditional café fare.
The previous vendor operated the business six days per week, open from 10:00-15:00 from Monday to Saturday, offering both sit-ins and take away options and provides an excellent opportunity to expand to offer evening meals.
The Café offered an excellent selection of breakfast fare, light snacks, soup and sandwich platters, lunches, baked potatoes, hot meals, fish teas along a good selection of cakes and pastries to either sit in or take away.
The property occupies an enviable location centre of Greenock on Nicolson Street within the town centre, with over 150k visitors annually from the adjacent Greenock Ocean Terminal through cruise liners.
Greenock is a town and administrative centre in the Inverclyde council area in Scotland and a former burgh within the historic county of Renfrewshire, located in the west-central Lowlands of Scotland. It forms part of a contiguous urban area with Gourock to the west and Port Glasgow to the east.
The property is a traditionally built terraced lock up over the ground floor. The main entrance is from the front which in turn leads to all areas private and public. The service counter is located to the right on entering. The seating area is well presented, offering seating for 56-60 persons. To the rear of the seating area, you will find ladies and gents facilities.
To the rear of the service counter, you will find ample food preparation counters, along with cooking equipment which comes included, as does tables and chairs if required. The front of the property is straight to the street. There is ample on-street parking in the surrounding area.
Connectivity is important for businesses and the cafe is ideally located in the centre of Greenock, 5 minutes from Greenock Ocean Terminal, 30 minutes from Glasgow International Airport and 40 minutes via the nearby M8 motorway to Glasgow City Centre.
