Butternut Squash

Edinburgh, Edinburgh

Business location


  • Price: 75000
  • Tenure: Leasehold
  • Business type: Restaurant

Butternut Squash is situated on Bath Street which links Portobello High Street to the beach-front in north-east Edinburgh.  The business occupies a double commercial unit formed over the ground floor within a parade of mixed commercial and residential properties.

Our clients have owned and operated Butternut Squash now for almost 7 years during which time they have built up a fantastic reputation for good quality wholesome cuisine, competitively priced, in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.  They have reluctantly placed the business on the market to relocate and leave behind a well established local business with a loyal following.

Due to its location just off the beach at Portobello, the business benefits from a good level of passing trade in addition to the local residents who regularly use the café/restaurant.

Offering a selection of breakfasts, lunches and afternoon teas seven days a week the business also opens later on a Friday and a Saturday offering a separate dinner menu.   Butternut Squash is licensed and also offers a BYOB policy to allow customers to bring their own wine with reasonable corkage charges.   Would suit a variety of different cuisine offerings.

As well as operating as a sit-down restaurant, there is also an option for takeaway which proves popular, especially on sunny days, for customers enjoying the promenade and the beach front. 

Leasehold - approximately 16 years remain on the current lease.  Rent £16,900 per annum.
