Property Information


Located in a small strip center approximately 300 feet from the water's edge across street from town's Post Office. Ample street parking, inviting frontage and about 1,350 square foot interior. Separate storage room and office space. Overhead sidewalk building awning for shade for outside tables and chairs. Seats about 30 patrons. The interior is absolutely unique with hundreds of nostalgic items from the 1940's and 1950's adorning the shelves, walls, counters and floor space. It is a truly a sandwich/coffee/ice cream shop located in a an "Old Time Museum!" Patrons love it! Many customers bring friends to this location for great food and to see all the memorabilia. They even have an old-fashioned soda fountain, vintage juke box and a working rotary phone! They do not accept credit cards just CASH and approved personal checks.

Growth & expansion opportunities:

A unique coffee and sandwich shop tucked into the historic fishing village along the northern Gulf of Mexico coast. The menu is both inviting and succinct and all items contribute to the broad share of volume, yet this business can be easily expanded in numerous ways. Opening on Sundays would increase volume, particularly for the "day tourists" flocking to this area from Tallahassee. Offering a more traditional breakfast menu with simple wraps, burritos and egg/biscuit items would be a good idea. Currently, they close their doors at 4:00 each day. A new owner might want to be open on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights with a simplified "Blue Plate Special" dinner option during peak tourist season.


A "one-of-a-kind" spot in North Florida that offers fabulous fare. There are 10 other restaurants within 5 miles, offering fried seafood, pizza, Bar B Q, fresh shrimp/oysters and grilled selections on their menu. Two of these restaurants offer a "trucker's breakfast" but none of them offer a comparable menu to the continental style offerings that serves a variety of bagel, croissant and English muffin specialties along with espresso, excellent coffees and fresh squeezed orange juice. Nearby Apalachicola is the hub of the food world in Franklin County, and this is the gateway to Apalachicola, which is one of the many reasons for the success of this business. This is the flagship in the coastal community, the only location to get coffee, lunch and ice cream in one stop for 50 miles! The is a "must stop" for locals and the many tourists which frequent the area.

Reason for selling:

Seller Retiring.

Support & Training:

Will train for 4 weeks @ no cost The most important skill to operate this business is a pleasant smile and knowing how to make customers feel happy! Previous experience in a restaurant or coffee shop would be helpful. Everything is in place and existing employees want to remain with the business! This is a turn key business deal and the seller will gladly work with the new owner for 4 weeks of training and transition at no cost. They serve an English style breakfast with fresh ground coffee, Espresso, Lattes, Cappuccino's and Borgia. Lunch items include a multitude of special sandwiches, hoagies and homemade soups and handmade milkshakes. Harking back to the 1950's, a Blue Plate Special is also offered! Or, patrons can enjoy the many ice cream combinations and drinks from the cooler or the authentic old-fashioned soda fountain! This place is truly unique! Licenses required include a Food Manager Certificate and Food Handlers Certificate for all employees.
