Hi Blknite, this is something I have done many times – I would be super excited to help you with it but I am in Melbourne – where are you? I can easily help via phone / skype / email but obviously being able to sit down face to face helps.

Cafes are often listed and discussed in terms of takings per week or kgs of coffee per week. The reason is often cafes have a lot of undeclared cash income so you cannot rely on the tax returns. It is not an ideal way to do things as obviously rent and expenses vary and cafe operations also vary a lot ie the amount and type of food sold has a large impact on food and staff costs.
