Sweet Spirits, a fine dessert caterer specializing in crepes and waffles, is set to open its first retail shop (261 George St. N., Unit 130) in downtown Peterborough.
To celebrate their dessert bar opening, on June 1st, Sweet Spirits will welcome the public to tour the new treat shop for their launch from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. and try some decadent desserts!

Enter the newly renovated shop to try a slice of cake, or their specialty French Macarons. Desserts aren’t the only thing to look forward to now, with Sweet Spirits offering “boozy desserts”. Take your pick of your favourite spirit, beer and wine to find your favourite dessert, or just head straight there for the alcohol-infused ice cream.
“I always have a craving for cake and wine, but found there were not a lot of options in Peterborough to get the two together,” says Sweet Spirits owner Hannah Howey as why she is opening the dessert bar.

Specializing in fine desserts, Howey was able to start her career path through the FastStart Program in Peterborough, which helps entrepreneurs between the ages of 18-29 jumpstart their business ideas.
Howey started catering to events such as weddings and parties, pushing to pursue her passion as a business. She competed in FastStart’s entrepreneurial competition Cub’s Lair, where Sweet Spirits achieved a runner-up prize for her business success and originality.

Gaining recognition for decadent desserts and unique flavours at these events, Sweet Spirits is well-known in the local business community for providing a high-quality catering service to the region. Now, Sweet Spirits will open shop to feature an array of desserts that will be available in store as well as continuing to cater within the local area.
“We are taking desserts to another level and can’t wait to share it with everyone!” says Howey.
