Popular retro Ipswich cafe Doorsteps has closed suddenly and is on the market.
The cafe, in St Nicholas Street, has been run for the past year by chef Becca Mears with the support of stepfather Terry Game.
It was decorated in retro style, and also hosted open mic and poetry events.
Miss Mears focussed on home cooking and local produce, making all her own cakes and savouries, with hot food lunches and full breakfasts. There was also a vegan and a vegetarian menu.
Today a sign in the window says the cafe has been closed, "due to family illness," and it has been put up for sale.
Commercial agent Scott Meek said: "We are trying to sell it as a going concern.
"There is an opportunity for somebody to take it on. It is fully fitted out.
