A new ice cream shop has opened in Manchester’s Northern Quarter today serving up locally-made ice creams and sorbets.
Called Sweet! it comes from the team behind Stevenson Square bars Hula Tiki, The Quarter House and The Fitzgerald, it’s bringing sweet, cold and creamy treats to this suntrap corner of the city centre just in time for summer.
From 12pm today, Sweet! will also be giving out 200 free ice creams to customers to celebrate its launch in Manchester.
Serving up locally-sourced ice creams and other goodies to hungry Mancs this summer, those heading down can expect to find fresh dairy-farmed ice cream straight from a farm on the Ribble Valley.
Based in Blackburn, Lancashire, Mrs Dowson’s award-winning ice cream comes from a third-generation dairy farm and boasts ‘honest, quality ingredients’.
The all-natural, farm-made dairy ice cream uses full cream milk fresh from their dairy herd and local ingredients.
As well as serving up Mrs Downson’s popular classic flavours like strawberry, mint choc chip, chocolate and vanilla, ice cream fans can expect to find some surprises alongside vegan-friendly sorbets for those of the plant-powered persuasion.
For the summer, there will be seating stretching out into the square for those wanting to enjoy an al fresco treat on site, as well as tubs and cones for those who’d prefer to take their ice cream away.
Located at 9 Stevenson Square, next door to The Quarter House, make sure to get down from 12pm if you want to get your hands on a freebie.
