Tell me about your dream cafe/coffee shop?

I have an opportunity to rent a large-ish cafe/coffee shop/restaurant a few moments walk from the local small town railway station, out the front of the tourist bus stop. What would you do to make it wonderful?

The business has been neglected by an absent owner for several years, leading to abysmal yelp reviews. I would be starting with a clean slate, and with the commercial restaurant plant and equipment in place.
I have a background in coffee shops/cafes and know what's involved, but I'd love to hear the creative mefi team pitch in with ideas on how to make it a wonderful place.
Things I would love input on:
- the best elements/things about your local coffee shops
- a great theme/name.
- inspired food suggestions
- anything really great you have always though a coffee shop restaurant should do.
The business is in the middle of a thriving tourist main street near transport, with a local population that tends toward the artsy/hippy/progressive side of things.
