Service was amazing and that mixed with the scenery and mood, it was just great. Everyone was smiling and happy, such a good atmosphere to chill at."

Mani Makeup Artist added: "Loved the atmosphere. Friendly staff. Service was brilliant and the desserts were so lush. We ordered dark chocolate croffle, vanilla milk cake, tapas of desserts and lots of mojitos. I ate every single bit of it."

Speaking about the win, Karina said: "Having only been open a year we’re overjoyed that we’ve gained significant praise from our customers which is a testament to the dining experience we’ve created alongside the founders of Heavenly Desserts and our twenty-plus team.

“I’ve always had an entrepreneurial vision and wanted to start something of my own after many years in the food and drink sector as a project manager at Sainsbury's. Following on from the pandemic and lockdown, I was inspired to get into the hospitality sector and Heavenly Desserts brought about a genuine invested interest from its co-founders Yousif and Imran which proved their passion and commitment to our success, which is why I selected their franchise to build-on."
