Two new dessert parlours are opening soon in Abingdon.

Love Desserts already has cafes in Bicester, Banbury and Hayes in Middlesex, and its signs have gone up at a shop unit in the High Street.

The new business will open later this month, serving gelatos, cakes, waffles, milkshakes and donuts.

Santino's Grill, a new burger bar, is to open alongside it, and one of the owners of both businesses said they would both be open soon.

Love Desserts is the latest new business to open in the town's High Street. 

In February, Abbey Fresh Food, selling fruit and vegetables, bread and meat opened in the large retail unit previously occupied by Abingdon Sports.

It is being run by Plamena Marinova and Biser Andreev.

The couple came to the UK from Bulgaria in 2006 and worked for Millets Farm in Frilford, picking, planting and packing fruit.

Abbey Fresh Food is open seven days a week and is next door to the Dog Spot, a dog-friendly cafe which opened in the unit previously occupied by an air ambulance charity shop.

While some new shops have been opening in Abingdon town centre, there have been closures in the Bury Street precinct.

It was part of a franchise, and the Wallingford branch also closed.

Vodafone in the precinct also announced it would be closing.
