My favourite place for a sweet treat

I have visited Just Desserts a number of times with friends and family but recently have visited on my own. On these recent times I feel that I have been spoilt each time. I have REALLY enjoyed their scones with jam and clotted cream - so delicious! At other times I have tried their pancakes... read more

I love deserts and had planned to take my family after our Thai meal next week. Fortunately I had a work do there last week, so got to try it. Really disappointing choices, but I love the Waffle House inSt Albans, so went for a waffle. There was no comparison, The Waffle House won by miles. Waffle was thin, cold... More

I had been told Just Desserts was a lovely place to go. Totally disappointed cold plates which meant cold waffles and cold crêpes ! Toilets dirty ! and smelly We were told they can't have hot/warm plates because of children. Never heard that excuse before. They offered to re cook food however we declined and paid for our coffee's and... More

I've been here many times and enjoyed every dessert but the last time I came the waffle was too dry and cold, and someone else's pancake was cold. Didn't make a fuss as it was still tasty plus it was a busy evening. Highly recommend the pecan nut. Their sundaes are good, it was a bit too melty though. They... More

We visited on Saturday afternoon last week. There were a few other tables but it was a very squashed seating area. There was no background music on and absolutely no atmosphere, we likened it to sitting in someones shed!! It was very cold, empty (other than tables and chairs) and echoey. Everytime someone spoke, no matter how quiet, you could... More

Been here a few times, its very overpriced for what it is, Sometimes it can be tasty but most of the time it takes a long time to arrive at your table and when it does its cold. Decor is also bery tatty. Needs improving.

Been here twice and both times I've struggled to choose what I want as there is so much! The cakes look amazing although not yet tried them! I've had a waffle and a crepe and both were delicious! The sundaes also look great! It's a lovely little place and I can't wait to return!

Since my last review two years ago had a few 'must improve' pointers I feel it only fair to update my review. Great with the kids, girls night out or just a treat. I've yet to discover a brownie that can beat Just Desserts' brownies (whether it be the Toblerone or triple chocolate one) and I have high expectations for... More

This place is a great alcohol-free and full-meal alternative to the usual choice for meeting friends. The prices are reasonable, atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming and desserts are delicious! I also love the luxury hot chocolate, which is very well priced (under £3) and comes in a huge mug with plenty of whipped cream and marshmallows (see photo). I've had... More
