You would be hard-pressed to find anyone who hasn't heard of Esme's Coffee Shop, established in Forbes in 1978, and famous for its excellent coffee, home-made meals and sweets.
Centrally positioned and always busy, this would make a fantastic family business, especially given Forbes' fantastic location, excellent schools and services, and great local attractions.
Recently refurbished, air-conditioned and offering a lovely atmosphere, Esme's takings have increased significantly since new hot and cold food displays were installed in April. The kitchen also features all new equipment.
Esme's boasts the best coffee in town, going through 20kg of Bills Beans from Orange a week! Bill is passionate about his coffee and has a huge following of customers. The beans are roasted fresh each week and ground fresh as required.
