A CAFE was proposed close to Ellesmere Port Railway Station.
The change of use was put forward at 1G Whitby Road by Ann Marie Lynch.
Planning officers were told approval was being sought for the change of use of the vacant commercial unit set in a row of seven.
It previously had permission for retail and for financial and professional services. A similar change of use to a cafe was agreed in 1999.
No objections were raised by the highway authority or environmental protection officers.
Planners said the cafe would be appropriate for the location. It was recommended for approval and the borough council agreed change of use.
