42287 NY-28, Margaretville, NY 12455
Calling all restaurateurs and entrepreneurs. A thriving cafe and restaurant is now available to make your own. With an open floor plan, water frontage, mountain views, outdoor seating, great natural light, and a professional, fully-equipped commercial kitchen, this space lends itself to a successful hospitality venture or other commercial enterprise. Crazy River Cafe & Deli is currently serving breakfast and lunch, and with a bar and dinner service you would easily have the opportunity to drive additional revenue throughout all meal periods. Build off of the loyal clientele comprising locals, weekenders, transplants, local businesses, and tourists. The largest employer in the area, Margaretville Hospital, is just across the street. The building was redesigned and lovingly rebuilt by the current owners.
Your guests will be able to choose from among several lovely seating areas, including dining al fresco alongside the East Branch of the Delaware River, atop the second-floor deck with water and mountain views, or inside the light-filled dining room. Create different experiences throughout the two-level space to offer various revenue opportunities. The ground-floor, parking adjacent 2,000 SF commercial space would be a natural fit for a bar, takeout area, or private dining room. The main floor cafe area could easily become a chef’s table to observe the chef plating up imaginative dishes. The 2,000 SF bright, spacious open-concept dining room features waterfront and mountain views and endless configurations for dining tables. The waterside location could easily become a highlight for guests looking to enjoy river views. With nearly an acre of land available, you could easily grow your own garden in the raised beds and offer dining surrounded by your locally-grown vegetables.
This perfect location offers a great opportunity for impactful signage to attract the thousands of vehicles that pass by daily. Located on the main east-west artery running through the heart of the Catskills, Route 28, you would have immediate access to passersby, including the après-ski crowd from nearby Belleayre Ski Center and Plattekill Mountain, golfers looking to enjoy the “19th hole” after a round at nearby Meadows Golf Center, revelers departing the Delaware & Ulster Railroad scenic train, and cyclists from the nearby Pepacton Reservoir loop. The Trailways bus line goes right past the front door for easy access to those traveling to nearby Andes, Delhi, Oneonta, Fleischmanns, Phoenicia, Woodstock, and Kingston from New York City.
With current seating for 54 indoor guests, 14 seats on the raised deck, and an additional 18 seats at the waterside picnic tables, you could take advantage of the current configuration or maximize the space to allow for additional seating. The ground-floor commercial space could draw around $1,600 - $2,000 per month in rental income with its own entry area. All furniture, fixtures, and equipment, (including all professional kitchen appliances), convey with the purchase. This is the opportunity to deliver an excellent hospitality experience in the heart of the Catskills surrounded by fresh air and creative retailers alike.
