A deal which will breathe new life into the former site of a coastal town's highest rated café is expected to be struck this week.
No Place like Home, in High Street, Lowestoft, unexpectedly closed at the end of last year.
And since then the prime location has been vacant.
The closure shocked many across the town as the café was well-loved and used by many – and had earned a 95pc Excellent rating on TripAdvisor.
It is now understood a deal is expected to be struck within the next week which will transform the venue into a restaurant of some kind.
Danny Steel, of Steel and Co which operates the property, said: “There has been progress; we are close.
“It’s certainly going to be an eating establishment but exactly how it all comes together is yet to be decided.”
Scaffolding will also be going up around the property this week as work gets under way to re-point the chimney.
