Cambridge’s gelato king, Jack van Praag, is opening a second scoop shop in the city centre. Following the success of the Bene’t Street branch of Jack’s Gelato - which, open year-round, is famed for its home-recipe hot chocolate as well as ices - he’s taken on premises on All Saints’ Passage, where The Cambridge Cheese Co. and chocolate shop Hill St. are neighbours. Says Jack, announcing the move on social media: “Could there be a better time to open a retail shop? Perhaps. But we have always been driven more by delight, excitement and beauty than by spreadsheets and bean counting.”

We are very excited to bring the all-new full Stem + Glory concept to our home town!”
