The fire was in the ground floor café and the adjoining annexe - there was extensive smoke, fire and heat damage to this part of the property.
The crews worked to minimize fire spread to adjoining buildings.
Three fire engines attended the incident and two people were led to safety from a separate first floor flat above the café.
They did not require medical assistance.
