Ever since I was 14, I thought it'd be cool to live in a building that included your own business. It's called "mixed zoning" which I didn't know till I was much older. Yes more cities are allowing that type of zoning or you can ask for a variance - which would include neighboring businesses or residents chiming in and having a say. You have to think of the negatives for them - increased parking? Odors from baking or cooking? What time are deliveries? What hours are you open? What about weekends? If you can address any concerns like that you might be able to change some zoning but if you find a building to buy, you can try to make that a contingency on the sale (that your zoning use is approved). Talk to city planners for guidance and find realtors who handle commercial property sales. This is a great time to buy commercial. Good luck!

It is very uncommon anymore, there are lots of fire concerns. The big cities still have some property like this though in the older areas. Talk to a real estate agent, you have to obtain not only dual zoned but zoned for food preparation, further complicating your needs.
