Local operators snap up cafe

Coletti & Co is said to have generated a large amount of interest

A CAFE in Edinburgh’s financial and business district has been sold to local operators.

Located on Lothian Road, Coletti & Co has been purchased by Malcolm Inness and Chris Reiss, who also own Ting Thai Caravan and Saboteur, both of which are located in Edinburgh’s Old Town.

The cafe had been operated by previous owner Lia Gill for five years.

Tony Spence, business agent at Christie & Co’s Edinburgh office, who handled the sale, said: “A great business in a prominent location within Edinburgh city centre, Coletti & Co generated a huge amount of interest from the outset, which continued until we achieved a successful sale.

“Demand within Edinburgh remains high for similar licensed restaurants as the city continues to grow with a high quality food, drink and leisure circuit.”
