A popular dessert shop in Adelaide’s south has shut its doors after struggling with rising costs and fewer customers.
Urban Desserts in Glenelg closed last month, with a sign placed on its shopfront announcing the store had ceased trading.
“We gave it our best shot,” the sign read, as reported by The Advertiser.

“We want to thank the lovely people who came in when we were open, we know you tried to spread the word but it simply costs us more to be here than we could make.”

Owner Jeremy Allan, who was a contestant on The Great Australian Bake Off 2016, confirmed to 7NEWS.com.au that the store had closed.
He said the main reason the store closed was a lack of foot traffic and increased rent.
“(There was also) a lack of support or negotiating from landlords and realtors with small business,” Allan said.
Urban Desserts’ two other locations, Colonnades Shopping Centre and Morphett Vale, will remain open.
“This is definitely not a reflection of our other stores and locations and they will absolutely remain open,” Allan said.
“Colonnades in particular is booming with locals.”
