Location! Location! Location! This well presented coffee shop and bistro enjoys a prime location on Castle Mound in this historic and ever busy city. Its location ensures a constant footfall from early morning to late evening for both workers and tourists alike. The main city bus stops and park and ride are just around the corner and the world famous Norwich Castle is across the road.

Long established, Cafe Delice enjoys an enviable reputation as a coffee shop and ice cream parlour and has much scope to extend the offering by opening both earlier mornings and into the evening.

This business is ready to go and presents an excellent opportunity for someone new to come in and make their mark on the place.


Whilst due to a change in the owners circumstances turnover has seen a decrease in the past year, and hence the low premium being sought, we are advised that the business has previously turned over in excess of £120,000 p.a.

The business has in the past opened in the evening as a small bistro offering tapas which can be enjoyed with a glass of wine thanks to the alcohol licence that has been granted to it. We think that there is a good demand for this type of offering and we would see no reason why if the hours are extended again to pick up the morning and late afternoon/early evening trade that turnover can be increased again to the levels previously enjoyed.

At present a simple breakfast and lunch menu is served with the usual assortment of hot and cold drinks with the highlight being a serving from the Ronaldo ice-cream counter which is something that the café is particularly well known for.

The business is currently operated by the owner and 2 part time members of staff but would benefit from a full time hands on owner operator to drive the business forward.


The bright airy café enjoys almost full height windows to 2 elevations which floods the dining area with sunshine making it a very welcoming place to sit and watch the world go by.

Currently set for 18 covers but with potential for 22 with a further 4 outside. The retail area measures some c. 350 sq ft and the newly refurbished kitchen adds a further c. 100 sq. ft There is also a staff wash room and downstairs there is an immaculate full height basement of some c. 250 sq ft which may be suitable for further seating or as a prep room for takeaways.

Nearly all the equipment is recently new and it would appear that no expense has been spared to ensure the quality is of the right standard. There are bake off oven, grills, microwaves, sandwich grills, fridges, freezers, and refrigerated food and drink display units together with all other equipment necessary for the smooth running of a successful operation.

The premises also enjoy the benefit of air-conditioning units in both the kitchen and dining areas, essential on those hot sunny days!
