It is centrally located within minutes of downtown, Sea World, the airport and Old Town San Diego, and benefits from the built in traffic generated from nearby shops and other restaurants. The restaurant's unique layout showcases its charming patio, and includes a significantly underutilized separate private party area with its own bar and kitchen.

Inventory estimated at $9,000 will be sold in addition to the purchase price at cost at close.
Competition is considered medium-high as many other restaurants exist in the immediate vicinity as this area is a popular destination zone for locals and tourists. The high concentration of retail shops and other restaurants offer a steady stream of visitors and potential customers, however this restaurant is unique in that it is housed in a stand along building with its own parking lot.
The restaurant has significant room for growth. As the current owners have operated the business for many years, they have relied on its reputation, regular customers and conventional marketing methods for sales, and have not capitalized on newer social, online and mobile media channels for advertising. Additionally, a new owner may also capitalize on the underutilized private party/banquet space, which includes its own kitchen and an ideal potential bar with a beautiful second story view.
