Why is this business successful? 

The venue itself, including its location and size at the West End of Pakington Street, attracts café goers from all over. The decor and design of the cafe, including the kitchen and service area, are absolutely “on trend,” and the environment creates a unique experience unlike any other. 

The specialty coffee offering from Padre, which sources only specialty-grade coffee and encourages provenance and sustainability, is a point of difference and sets the standards high. Additionally, other unique products only available through the business in this region—Pana, Greene Street Juice, and Hemp products—make the cafe exclusive.

The cutting-edge menu, which caters to both the traditional cafe goer and the alternate food crowd, with a vegan and healthy choice offering, complements the above and makes the environment inclusive. This attracts more customers from a larger demographic—it’s a truly special place. 

The cafe's culture and brand are strengths as they aim to bring a community together via other means than just the food and coffee: the events, the space itself, the cross-promotion, and sponsorship. People don’t just come for the quality, service, and atmosphere; they come to collaborate as a thriving community. 

The operational procedures and staff training demonstrate the establishment of a sound business supported by strong income and financial management.

If you are looking for an established cafe that is a sound business investment, this is the one. It is diverse, community-conscious, proven, and sure to provide serious rewards.
