Offering ready made meals such as soups, salads, lunch and dinner selections or even microwaveable frozen entrees. Also, this business provides an extensive catering menu that features many homemade dishes. While there, explore the nice selection of proven wines, gift baskets and gourmet kitchen gear available for take home purchase. Sharing the joy of cooking is truly a Mediterranean trait & you can learn for yourself with cooking classes currently offered here. This historic building features a custom build out with custom woodwork designed by very skilled professionals. Most of the furniture & fixtures were imported from Europe to furnish this very immaculate space. The owner spared no expense in providing top notch equipment and creating a top notch gourmet shop/cafe space as they invested close to $500,000.00. This is a great central location for catering, has lots of dry storage space & a large walk in as well as nicely equipped kitchen. The building owners will structure a lease to accommodate the new buyer/owner as they are very flexible and excited to see the success continue. The current owner started this business as a hobby & life long dream to have her own fantastic gourmet shop & cafe. While she accomplished her dream, the business grew beyond her ability to manage with her limited restaurant experience and a young family to attend to. The owners are willing to sell the entire business for less that 50% of what they have invested & built over the last two years. They want to help a talented person from the business world, restaurant industry or a chef to take this business to the next level.
