From the Frank Hardy listing:


Turn-key commercial building in historic district of Lovingston. Retail or foodservice opportunities abound. Once the local firehouse, this charming space has been reimagined and updated with a full line of kitchen equipment. Previously used as a florist and a hair salon, it was most recently a gourmet food & coffee shop. The building comes with everything needed for a small cafe, deli, bakery or market. All commercial fixtures convey, including: exterior walk-in chiller, electric convection baking oven, 6-burner gas range & oven, commercial refrigerator, 3-basin dishwash sink, hood & fire suppression system, various prep tables, display coolers & shelves, POS system, and more. It features a light-filled glass storefront, an outdoor patio, and public water & sewer utilities. Could also house two different businesses as there are two entry doors along the street and separate electric meters. Located a tenth of a mile off of major thoroughfare US 29 and nextdoor to the most-trafficked location in town – the Lovingston post office. Minutes from local breweries & wineries. A perfect stop between Charlottesville and Lynchburg.
