First time visit!!! Wow the Strawberry Nutella Waffle was amazing , along with the Sticky Toffee Shake. Situated in the Northern Quarter , don't be put off by the plain appearance from the outside because the food is sensational!

Groupon has an offer on at the moment. Takeaway only and certain times. Went last week the freakshakes look fab. I had a strawberry and nutella sundae. Enough for 2.
