A popular Irvine ice cream and dessert cafe is branching out after many years of success in the town.

Shells Scoops & Shakes announced last night that they are to open a Saltcoats branch after five years saying that they have 'listened to the people' by opening a new shop 'very soon'.

The current shop is based in Irvine High Street and offers a full range of cakes, ice cream, waffles, pancakes, crepes and home delivery of all these delicious treats.
