Spotlight: Sweetbean


10 Feb 18

Sweetbean is great news for anyone with a serious sweet tooth. In January 2018, this delicious dining spot joined the Boxpark family to deliver all things fresh, sweet and tasty; think ice cream, shakes, sundaes, cakes and more! What could be better? We caught up with Saad Choudhry, the man behind the menu, to find out more.

Tell us who you are and what you do.

We are Sweetbean and we cater for those who love speciality coffee and have a sweet tooth for desserts.

What can customers expect from you at Boxpark Croydon?

We make our speciality coffee using Square Mile coffee beans; we pour loose leaf tea, serve amazingly smooth gelato, both traditional and funky flavours; there's hot puddings with custard, American-style freshly made waffles and pancakes, and huge, crazy freakshakes. 

Which song best sums up your brand? 

It would have to be 'Sugar' by Maroon 5, or 'SexyBack' by Justin Timberlake; for the desserts of course, not me!

What is your favourite item from your menu?

I can't pinpoint one single item, but my top 3, so far, would be the banoffee waffle, the hazelnut gelato, and our nuts about Nutella freakshake!

Which other Boxpark Croydon trader would you recommend to customers?

Coqfighter or Thai Express with
 a good milkshake or a few scoops of gelato to compliment the meal. 

What is your favourite thing about Croydon?

I love the diversity! Croydon also has a great mini-skyline. The trams are great, too!

Finally, what was the last song you listened to?

Bob Marley - Three Little Birds
