Sweet taste of success for new dessert cafe Amore Dolci as it opens in Peterborough

Venue is already getting five star reviews

A new dessert cafe has just thrown open its doors in Stanground following a ‘substantial’ investment by two brothers.

The Amore Dolci, in Desborough Avenue, has been opened by Kashaf Asghar (34) and Qasam Asghar (30) who also run the Suave Image and Grooming just two units away in the same street.

The new attraction offers a mouth-watering menu featuring waffles, crepes to doughnuts, cakes, sundaes, milkshakes and quality coffee.

It opens from 3pm to 11pm on Mondays to Thursdays and to midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.

And the owners say that their long term plan is to oversee the expansion of the new brand in a variety of locations across the region.

Kashaf said: "We have run the barber shop for about nine years and have built up a great clientele and reputation and we will carry on.

“But we also felt that the area needed something a bit more refreshing and the opportunity to buy the premises came along and we took it.

"We thought we might do deliveries but we are finding that people like to come in and sit down for something to eat and drink.

"We might change the opening hours so customers can come in earlier for a coffee.

He added: “It is a massive learning curve for us and we are putting in all hours to do.

"This has been made possible by the support of our parents. The work was all completed by local tradesmen and clients of the barbershop.”

Amore Dolci currently employs two members of staff with the owners still looking to grow the team.

Kashaf said the reaction of customers had been wonderful and that the cafe had already received 20 five star reviews.

He added: “We have created the brand Amore Dolci with the support of experienced franchisees within the industry.

"We aim to serve Peterborough with the finest desserts and exceptional hospitality and we will be looking to expand the brand throughout the region.
