Whether you are feeling gluttonous or simply fancy a sweet treat, the menu at Afters is bound to offer something to tickle your taste buds.

Afters, the new dessert parlour in Sutton High Street, boasts a selection of treats, including ice cream, cold stones, sundaes, smoothies, milkshakes, juices, waffles and cakes.

So what to choose? Torn between a classic sundae and a warming waffle I decided the best thing to do would be to combine the two-enter the Waffler (£9.95).

It promised three scoops of vanilla ice cream, served with mini hot waffle pieces, hot chocolate fudge sauce, whipped cream and a choice of either fresh banana slices or strawberries- I opted for the latter.

My companion decided to combine their ice cream sundae with chocolate cake picking the Hot Choc Fudge (£9.95), which promised a good balance of hot and cold made from three scoops of vanilla and chocolate ice cream with triple layer fudge cake, drowned in hot chocolate fudge sauce also served with whipped cream and fresh banana or strawberry.

My guest described the sundae as chocolatey and rich, complemented nicely by the fresh strawberries.

He particularly enjoyed the ice cream smothered in hot fudge sauce.

Afters was full when we arrived just after six on a Saturday night, with a mix of families, groups of young people and couples enjoying their desserts. With bright pink and black colouring and a juke box in the window you would be forgiven for thinking you were in an American diner. The atmosphere was nice and the parlour was being enjoyed by children and adults alike making a visit worthy of a family afternoon out.
