A deal which will breathe new life into the former site of a coastal town's highest rated café has been agreed.
The café - No Place Like Home - on Lowestoft High Street closed unexpectedly in December 2018.
The prime high street location has been vacant ever since.
The closure back then shocked many people as the much-loved and well-used café and tearoom had earned a 95pc Excellent rating on TripAdvisor.
But Danny Steel, of Steel and Co Commercial Property Services in Lowestoft, which acts as agents for the owners of the property, said a deal to transform the former high street café had been agreed.
