A Paignton cafe has been sold - and its new owners plan to introduce a new takeaway menu while they wait for Covid-19 restrictions to be lifted and they can open its doors to diners.
Hammond’s Café has been bought by experienced caterers Mr and Mrs Butler, who have relocated to Paignton from Cornwall and are currently settling into their new home.
Mr and Mrs Butler will be opening shortly and, in the first instance, will offer an updated takeaway menu to both regular and new customers.
Once regulations allow, the cafe will be opening its doors to the public.
Mr and Mrs Butler have increased the vegetarian and vegan options and introduced a children’s menu. Afternoon teas will also be available via pre-order.
As and where possible, all ingredients will be from sustainable sources, said the new owners.
Genevieve Stringer, who handled the sale for leading commercial estate agents Bettesworths, said: "Hammond’s is a delightful café with the added benefit of spacious owners' accommodation, and not surprisingly, we were able to agree a sale just two months after going on the market.
