Steamin Mugs



Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market this vibrant and busy coffee shop/cafe, which was only established around 2 years ago and already has a turnover in excess of £120,000.

The owner is now looking to pursue other business interests.

Steamin Mugs offers large premises which were completely refitted 2 years ago with brand new fixtures and equipment, having 58 covers inside and 8 outside, a children’s play area (quite unique for a coffee shop) and is becoming well known in the area, having many loyal customers.

The business offers both hot and cold foods with a wide range of baguettes, breakfast’s and wholesome main meals.

The café occupies a lovely pedestrian walkway location, with a busy passing trade.

Even though Steamin Mugs has only been established for 2 years, it has already won an award in the Welsh independent retail awards, coffee shop of the year 2017 for the south west region and has been nominated for the National finals, for business of the year, business/customer service/family business 2018, for the whole of wales and nomination for the family business of the year awards 2018.

The business is busy; however, this could be still further improved with a website, more advertising, longer opening hours during the week to include evenings and longer weekend openings including Sundays. Also, by obtaining an alcohol license for the evenings and by extending the menu and introducing new drinks etc, things really could be taken to the next level.

Viewing is a must to appreciate the quality and friendly coffee shop on offer, see trip advisor for great comments and reviews. It also has its own Facebook page, being very much part of the community.
