Cookie Shake

Milkshakes, ice creams, cookies and hot chocolate. If you’re looking for drinking chocolate then this place is a haven of it. Look out for their famous wall of toppings. They stay open until 9pm most nights.


Doughnuts like you’ve never tasted before! This place was only founded in 2015, but it’s genuinely hard to imagine the city without them now. Their flagship store is based on Queen Street near the Brian Clough statue and is a treat for the eyes and mouth.


Choose from a menu of sundaes (including their infamous Knickerbocker Glory), waffles, crepes, cakes, puddings, milkshakes and more. Eat in or take out at this dessert lovers paradise.

You can buy some amazing chocolates from their shop in Cobden Chambers, but if you want to really treat yourself why not enrol in a chocolate-making course at their studio just down the road on Thurland Street and learn from the professionals to make your own.

Puddings, pancakes, hot drinks and cocktails - with options to get chocolate into any of them. This local dessert company has recently expanded into both Sherwood and Beeston, but theirflagship store in Trinity Square remains their base.
