Afflecks, Church Street, Manchester, M4 1PW

Fan of ice-cream and sorbets? One of our favourite dessert places in Manchester, Ginger’s Comfort Emporium is a Northern Quarter ice-cream parlour providing dairy and vegan ice creams in a plethora of flavours all year round. From basic to bizarre, it’ll be a while before you get tired of the flavours from this ice-cream truck. Some of their wackiest options are still their best-sellers today including “Marmalade on Toast”, “Olive Oil & Sea Salt”, & “Chorlton Crack”- salted caramel and peanut butter.

Affordable and adventurous, we recommend trying these tasty flavours in sandwich form… you won’t be disappointed. Find out more here
