Cafe Brasserie & Restaurant (ref 1271)

Old Town, Edinburgh

Business location


  • Price: 48000
  • Tenure: Leasehold
  • Business type: Restaurant

The business occupies a prime trading location on Lady Lawson Street, directly across from Edinburgh Art College.  The exceptionally well regarded Timberyard restaurant is located close by and the business is also situated close to the Grassmarket, Lothian Road as well as the financial services district of Edinburgh.

The business occupies three former shop sites forming the address 46-52 Lady Lawson Street.   The restaurant occupies the ground floor of a traditional Edinburgh tenement property.   Main access is via an entrance vestibule at the southern end of the property leading into the café/restaurant area.

The business has been run by our clients since 2011 in tandem with two other Café Truvas in Edinburgh city centre.  Our client trades successfully from the Shore area as well as the Royal Mile.   Our client has made the decision to offer for sale the lease on the Lady Lawson Street site. 

It is strongly felt that as the business is run under management and our client operates two additional businesses the opportunity would certainly hold huge appeal for a partnership, a husband & wife team or those looking to run the business on a hands-on basis.  

Our client is also under-trading the business in terms of opening hours and it is strongly felt, given the recent popularity of the area, that the business would benefit from all day opening.   Our client trades from 8.00am to 6.00pm but there is huge prospective demand for an evening restaurant trade.
