Lazy Sundae, one of Manchester’s most popular ice cream parlours, has opened a brand new site within the Manchester Arndale.

The Northern Quarter dessert spot is famed for its adventurous ice cream flavours, bubble teas and jiggly Japanese souffle pancakes.

It’s now finally taken over the site in the centre of Halle Place, the £11m food hall in the heart of the shopping centre.

The unit, sandwiched between those two controversial escalator/staircase hybrids, was previously home to Kiosk coffee shop by the team behind General Stores.

Lazy Sundae, a Tib Street favourite, is now open for business in the Manchester Arndale, where it’s serving up its legendary cereal-encrusted cones topped off with colourful scoops of ice cream.


There’s also bubble tea, with incredible flavours like brown sugar crème brûlée milk tea, classic strawberry bingsoo blueberry smash fruit teas.

There are six flavours exclusively available in the Arndale site too, from a Thai favourite of mango sticky rice, Jasmine milk tea, and Matcha KitKat.


The space has been turned into a soft peach-coloured kiosk space, with plenty of rattan details and plants.

The beautiful new ice cream parlour has plenty of seating for people to make use of while working through the extensive menu of sweet treats.

Lazy Sundae joins existing Halle Place food and drink operators like Archie’s, PizzaLuxe, and Doner Shack.


Sharing the news on Instagram, the dessert shop wrote: “Paradise has officially arrived. Our NEW FLAGSHIP store is now OPEN in the heart of Manchester Arndale!

“With 6 ARNDALE EXCLUSIVE ice cream flavours that are not one to miss: Mango Sticky Rice, Avocado Coco, Peach Yakult, Jasmine Milk Tea, Matcha Kitkat and Honey Butter Corn Crunch.”
