  1. Rent is high and so is competition, so you better be really sure of the location. I work in a gentrifying section of DTLA and a cafe recently opened near me. It’s catty-corner from an apartment building that is in its final stages of being completed, so it would seem to have an eventual built-in source of income. Still though, my assumption is that unless they got an amazing deal on rent, they must be burning through cash at the present.

  2. Very hard. Location means a lot. And unless you have a track record, many owners won’t even talk with you.
    We also have a lot of them and you almost need some kind of ‘hook’ to make it work.
    Now are you looking to build out or would you need to buy and rehab an existing coffee shop or cafe? The swing in costs – is obvously huge.
    Now I help people out on things like this in DTLA (and elsewhere) pro bono. And if you won’t want to give out to much info on-line – I am pretty damn easy to find.
    But – for now – any thing you can say on the scope of your project will help everyone who reads your question.
