Upper Montclair Cafe / Specialty Foods Store for Rent

Beautiful and well-equipped cafe / restaurant space.

Very desirable space in a prime location on Valley Road in the Upper Montclair (Uptown) business district, in the middle of the block between Bellevue and Lorraine Avenues. If you want your business to have a presence in this district, you will not find a better location, with a wide sidewalk, bright, highly visible location in the middle of the block, ultra convenient access to the municipal parking lot via an adjacent walkway, metered street parking in front, and an ideal setup if you offer curbside pickup.

A true turnkey opportunity

Incoming tenant must negotiate the purchase of the equipment, fixtures, and non-branded contents of the store from the current tenant, who is asking $40,000.

You could be open in days instead of the months a new buildout would take – and at a fraction of the cost of outfitting an empty store. As configured, it’s perfect for a cafe, juice bar, pizza, salad or sandwich shop, ice cream store, or anything with counter service and takeout. Note that there are menu restrictions in place to avoid competition with the diner next door.

Kitchen / prep area is approximately 12×15.

This gorgeous space features the original 1912 tin ceiling in the customer area.

This is a great time to start, expand, or relocate your business.

This store is convenient to the NJ Transit Upper Montclair train station with Midtown Direct service to Penn Station, as well as trains to Hoboken. Bus stops for NJ Transit local buses and DeCamp buses to NYC are around the corner.

Note: Equipment and some fixtures shown in the photos are not included in the rental, but are available for purchase from the current tenant. Jump on this deal to have a true turn-key operation for a fraction of the cost of building out an empty storefront.
