Find me a profitable business on or very near the Ocean(east coast .)I have 150k in cash to spend.

Criteria:
-would like to make close to100k or over.
-Nice area.
-No businesses based on "potential." Must be maiking money NOW, the way it is being run NOW.
-restaurants are my primary area but will consider almost anything.
- i can commit up to 60 hours per week as sole owner. Please no businesses that there are two or three owners each working excessive hours to make a good cash flow.
- "cash" businesses ok as long as there is some kind of proof of income.
-good lease a must
Anybody have anything? I am sick of wasting time with brokers and owners who are trying to sell me 10 pounds of monkey crap in a five pound bag. Legitimate opportunities only. Please remember the "potential" rule.
Thanks!!!

Chuck. Thanks for replying. I should have been more clear, though. I don't want to spend more than 150k total. I don't want any financing because I like living without worrying about the "kiss of debt."
I know it is a lot to ask for but I do know sometimes for whatever reason (illness, divorce, cash business, etc.) sometimes great deals can be had. I will bring cash to the table so a seller wouldn't have to worry about me getting approved for financing. Convenience stores/gas stations near the beach seem to do well-- but I would need guidance from a broker on that type of business.
