A new café has just opened in Kent – and it’s good news for chocolate fans.
That’s because the brand new opening in Canterbury city centre is entirely dedicated to gooey, fudgy brownies.
Love Brownies, in the former Kent Reliance in Rose Lane, is the chain’s ninth franchise in the UK.
The store, which opened on Thursday (January 16), sells a range of weird and wonderful chocolate brownies – as well as the classics.
Just some of the flavours on offer include salted caramel, coconut, double chocolate, morello cherry and raspberry.
All of its brownies are gluten-free, and a range of vegan options are also on offer.
And it doesn’t stop at brownies either, as it also offers a breakfast and lunch menu as well as coffee and famously indulgent hot chocolates.
Writing on Facebook, a spokesman for the company said: “Canterbury we are open!
“Indulgent brownies, milkshakes and hot chocolate that has to be tasted to be believed! We also offer a tempting range of breakfast and lunch options.
“Visit us on Rose Lane, Whitefriars shopping centre.”
Love Brownies was founded in 2009 by Chantal Teal, who is also the businesses head chef.
Starting out as an online gifting site, the first shop was opened in 2016 in Ilkley, West Yorkshire, and quickly became a well-established venue offering delicious luxury chocolate brownies, cakes and beautifully packaged chocolate gifts along with freshly brewed coffee.
Now operating a franchise model, Love Brownies has outgrown its original kitchen, which is now a larger café, and opened a commercial kitchen right in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales.
With capacity for producing 10,000 brownies per day, all locations are supplied with hand-made brownies on a next day delivery basis, ensuring fresh, top-quality brownies at every single venue.
A mission statement on the Love Brownies website reads: “We want every single one of our cafés to be the absolute best that it can be – wherever you live you deserve the complete Love Brownies experience (trust us, it’s a real treat!).
“This means that behind the scenes we have an amazing team of colleagues, suppliers and contractors all working hard to get things tip-top.”
It adds: “Love Brownies is a delightful place to enjoy breakfast, lunch and of course, an award-winning brownie.

“Whether you’re a tropical coconut connoisseur or like your brownies fruity and opt for fresh raspberry or zingy orange, we have something for everyone. Oh, and our hot chocolate is to die for.
“But a visit to Love Brownies isn’t just about experiencing a taste sensation. Yes, that’s top of the list, of course. But we want to make sure you always leave feeling like you can’t wait to come back.
“Making sure that we have colouring-in and games to occupy little ones whilst they enjoy their babyccino, stocking our loo with emergency supplies in case you get caught short, and making sure that your brownie is on the house if you pop in on your birthday – these are things we think set us apart from the rest.”
Love Brownies is open seven days a week.
