If you feel this is for you then do it. Unfortunately there are many failures on this island who thought they knew about running a business and even thoughs who dont even live here who love to comment.
I acctually use Hatties, unlike some who for some reason comment on a business they havent even visited. It is a great role model for what you seem to be aiming for, although off the walkway for passing trade, it has a loyal local clientele and doesnt bother opening evenings as it doesnt bother with a drinks trade.
Worth studying this business if your heart is set on this venture
Is the Lakeland cafe in Los Cristianos still going ? Not been there for ages but it was always popular & seemed to be a mirror image of what these people are thinking of doing.
i remember a little tea room type place just at the back of the casino walking from las americas to san eugenio, they had the same idea, home made victoria sandwich, carrot cake, bacon sandwiches etc etc, the old guy used to do the pr ing just down by the sea front where they have built the new steps, haven't seen him for a while?, we tried it a few times, it never seemed very busy, we ordered sandwiches but they couldn't get them right?, i thought surely being british they know how to get a good old bacon sandwich right? but then we noticed that they had two black guys doing the food, maybe they where somalian, cheep labour i suppose,
Cosy Cafe maybe.
It's no good doing it as a half baked project!
I noticed the original poster said a 1940's tea room?
Wondered why you had that in mind particularly, we have been to the cafe on Carnforth rail station quite a few times, where the scenes from Brief Encounter were filmed and I love how the cafe there is fitted out, lots of wood, old fashioned counter etc and lovely atmosphere.
I like your idea but would suggest, if you do go ahead and find premises that you think may be suitable, to run it past a few forum members again before agreeing anything.
Location is very important and unless you live in Tenerife there may easily be something about an area that you dont know about by just visiting for a week or so.
