With a cafe, as with any business, it is vital to ensure that you have a clear understanding of your target market and can tailor your service accordingly. You will need to decide on your opening hours ‒ will it be a business that only opens during the day, or will it also open in the evening? Will it serve alcohol or only hot beverages and soft drinks? It is also vital for you to know who your customer is and make sure that the food and drink you offer is suitable for the market you are aiming for.
