Gelato, crêpes and waffles – what better way to celebrate the month of May?!
After a few bleak weeks, the sun finally started to shine over Manchester today and the sky was painted a shade of blue. In order to take advantage of such a delightful day I decided to visit one of my favourite hideouts in Manchester – Fresco Freddo’s Gelateria. But shhh! It’s a secret between you and I okay?
I first spotted Fresco Freddo’s on the bus on my way up to the city centre and I was instantly charmed by how lovely it looked. Needless to say I was there the very next day with my good friend Greta – like an eager beaver hungry to try most (if not all) of the gelato!
One thing I should warn you about – when you arrive, be prepared to stand and feel completely clueless as to what to order. The menu is fantastic and you will be stood staring at all the delicious ice cream, crepes and waffles kicking yourself to decide. This has happened to me with every single visit. Here you’ll find a rainbow of ice cream ranging from creme brûlée, tiramisu, Oreo, lime and mint to raspberry and pistachio… so, so many choices!
Today I visited with the lovely Mariana (yes, we are name twins!) and it was such certainly the perfect way to end a sunny day!
I felt like ordering something fruity rather than chocolatey – this may have something to do with my frequent Nutella dinners… (Yes, Nutella out of the jar – plus a few raspberries for good measure).
I chose the apple and cinnamon crepe with a scoop of vanilla ice cream while Mariana ordered a chocolate drizzled waffle plus ice cream. Both were far too delicious for their own good!
If sweet stuff isn’t your thing, then check out their savoury options – something to tickle everyone’s tastebuds.
Time to get cracking on a waffle, crepe and ice cream cake! x
