New dessert restaurant set to open in Leicester

A fast-expanding dessert and gelato restaurant is set to come to Leicester.

Creams will open at 4-8 Granby Street after a deal brokered by Space Retail Property Consultants.

Creams opened its first venue in 2008 and describes it menu as “the best desserts known to man”.

The Leicester restaurant will be Creams’ 57th opening in the UK.

Its menu includes sundaes, waffles, crepes, gelato and sorbet, puddings and drinks.

A spokesperson for Space said: “Being close to the soon-to-open Sports Direct/Flannels unit in the former BHS on Gallowtree Gate, Creams expect to generate substantial additional business from a location that already has a continual footfall throughout the day and evening.

“With similar like-minded retailers and F & B operators in the immediate vicinity, the northern end of Granby St is establishing itself well as an alternative experience to the family-orientated restaurant offers in Highcross.”
