The Avalon Beach village restaurant space that cafe queen Jackie Milijash bought just before her death last year sold ahead of yesterday's scheduled auction.

The beloved business woman had secured the Old Barrenjoey Road commercial property with a view to opening a new coastal establishment.

She'd given the existing restaurant and bar premises a makeover with the intention of eventually redeveloping the site with plans by Iain Halliday from BKH. 

Lara Rowell at Fine & Country Avalon Beach sold it to the neighbouring owner for around $1.85 million.

Milijash was credited with helping create Sydney's cool cafe culture with Jackies at Bondi then Paddington which is now operated by former staffer turned foodie Myles Davis, who's back from the London cafe scene.

She had owned a Paddington terrace home just around the corner on Gipps Street which she sold in 2015 for $1.95 million, having paid $1.22 million in 2011.
