Kaspa’s Desserts is a brand new addition to Paragon Square, located directly across the road from the bus and train station.

The moment we walked through the doors we were greeted by a smiling team member and bright, colourful surroundings. We were asked where we’d like to sit and, wishing to see the entire premises, we chose an upstairs booth overlooking the square outside.

Part of a chain that can also be found in London, Newcastle and Liverpool, the self-proclaimed “King of Desserts” is truly worthy of its title, offering a huge range of hot and cold puddings to tempt every palate. With ice cream sundaes that include an exotic Tropical Paradise and a mouthwatering Caramel Crunch, the chances of you not finding something to suit your taste are very slim indeed.

Visually, Kaspa’s is bold, inviting and full of character, with its pink and black leather seats, glittery walls, chrome light fixtures and enormous wall mirrors. The design is that of a retro American ice cream parlour, and we honestly can’t think of anything else that could have been included other than a cadillac outside. Having said that, there are some eye-catching scooter seats that have pretty much the same effect and complement the decor perfectly.

With so much to choose from, we spent a good ten minutes browsing the menu. In the end we went for The Great Knickerbocker Glory, a Pina Colada Bubble Shake and a Mango and Passion Fruit Bubble Slush. For those of you who haven’t tried bubble drinks before, they come in a selection of flavours (including vanilla, watermelon, kiwi and many more), with the “bubble” part taking the form of soft juice balls or jelly bits. These can be sucked through the straw and either chewed or swallowed whole, adding an extra level of fruitiness to an already delicious beverage.

The Great Knickerbocker Glory was divine, with chopped fruit covered in scoops of strawberry and chocolate ice cream, then topped with fresh vanilla ice cream, whipped cream and drizzles of strawberry syrup. There was even a wafer sporting the Kaspa’s logo, which is something that we’ll be seeing a lot more of very soon because the place is very addictive.

From arriving to leaving we were served by four people, all of whom were friendly, professional and offered excellent customer service. We also had a quick chat with the manager, who told us that business started off well and is steadily picking up as people try out this brilliant dessert destination. The vibe is somehow lively even during quieter times, giving it a feel-good and family-friendly atmosphere.

With the menu also presenting cakes, puddings, crepes, chocolate dipped strawberries, waffles and hot cookie dough, we highly recommend a visit. Plus if you’re keen about fitness, you can choose from a range of protein power shakes. Coeliacs can indulge too, as there are a fair few gluten free options available.

As for prices, you can get something yummy for as little as £3, with most main desserts being around the £6 mark.

Even if you don’t have a sweet tooth, you can visit Kaspa’s for a cup of coffee, tea or chai, making it an ideal spot for a quick rest and recharge.
