Creams Croydon opens its doors for the first time today in Valley Leisure Park – what was previously Subway – and from noon on Saturday, February 1, they will start giving away free gelato to lucky customers on a first-come, first-served basis.

Sweet-toothed Croydon locals are encouraged to get down early for their free scoop of Creams’ delicious gelato, which is made at its one-of-a-kind gelato factory in east London.

The 80-seat restaurant and takeaway is set to employ more than 25 staff and offers an unrivalled range of delicious, freshly prepared treats, including several expertly-crafted cookie dough combinations, crêpes, and waffles.

“We can’t wait to introduce Creams to the local community and would love to see plenty of people at our grand opening on February 1 for delicious gelato,” said Lauren Haslewood, the company’s marketing director. “We’re confident that our dessert café will not only be loved by busy shoppers but will also become a great spot for those looking for a romantic date after watching a film or a game of bowling. We look forward to welcoming Croydon’s biggest dessert fans!”

In addition to its main menu, the new store in Croydon will be offering a limited-edition Valentine’s menu which runs from February 7-16.

Customers at Creams can even devise their own desserts

The menu welcomes three love-ly desserts, perfect for sharing, including an exquisite hand-drawn lace crepe filled with piña colada gelato, a sensational white chocolate cookie dough centred waffle with pomegranate gelato, or a wrapped chocolate crepe filled with oozing melted chocolate fudge cake.

With vegan and gluten-free options available, Creams’s every day celebrations cater to everyone. Thick milkshakes, smoothies and soda floats, plus teas and coffees accompany the dessert extravaganza.

The store is still recruiting staff. To find out more about current job opportunities at the store, please get in touch with the store on croydon@creamscafe.com.
