A POPULAR dessert bar and coffee shop has more than doubled its covers after moving to Dovercourt’s “more visible” High Street.

After successful years at the back of the Kingsway Plaza, Jus’ Desserts re-opened this Tuesday at its new location on the High Street.

Owner Mark Dowden said the new premises offered more space meaning he had now more than doubled his covers from 20 to 45.

Mark added that new High Street location offered more visibility to the shop and with “people coming up and down” the street.

He said: “We only opened yesterday and we’ve had the support of the local people and local traders.

“A few people have come back to say hello and a few new people have been in who have never been in before.”

Mark said how important it was the dessert bar offers a variety of vegan and gluten-free options as now for customers “nothing is worse than having one gluten free option that looks out of place.”
