For sale is one of the most popular and well known cafes on the Atherton Tablelands … The Gillies Cafe! Fully managed, amazing location with views, new modern fitout and furnishings, good profits … what more could you ask for?

Business Overview
Located in an ideal high profile position on the corner of Gillies Highway and Lake Barrine Road, The Gillies Cafe was established in February 2021 by an experienced owner who has quickly developed a brand that is well known and respected.

The fully licensed business offers a range of delicious dine in and takeaway meals, snacks and sweets, sensational coffee and amazing cocktails that drive a high level of demand, resulting in minimal slow down during the recent Covid-19 restrictions.

In addition to the cafe, the premises also include a newly fitted out restaurant, bar and function room. Until recently, the restaurant was operated several nights a week, but the owner decided to discontinue this for now as we find a buyer for the business.

Considerable expense was incurred in the set up and fitout of The Gillies Cafe, with the premises now boasting an immaculate fitout that accommodates up to 220 people.
