Gingers Comfort Emporium
You’ve probably seen the chic and trendy “ice cream van for the grown-ups. This dessert wagon is mainly to be found after dark, when the children are safe in bed, roaming the streets of south Manchester.”
And now luckily for us they have a permanent residence in the Northern Quarter, on the first floor Afflecks Palace.
The charming space holds ice cream with the most unique flavours, and you choose to relish in it with either toasted brioche, hot puddings, affogato style, or milkshake.
Its up to you, whether you go for “creamy, fruity, nutty, chocolatey, meringuey, spicy, boozy, crunchy, refreshing, comforting iced desserts” but one thing is for sure no matter which one you go for you’re going to be left flabbergasted.
