An NYC-Style Cookie And Doughnut Spot Has Popped Up In The Northern Quarter

Cheat day never looked so good!

Popping up in the Northern Quarter just this week, a brand new NYC-inspired bakery is set to open next Thursday (March 12) in between The Corner Boy and Wilson’s Social.

Currently in its soft launch phase, Gooey will be serving up tasty, New-York inspired treats – and it’s easy to see where they got their name. Serving warm and gooey cookies and sugar doughnuts stuffed with a variety of fillings, the treats will be made fresh daily and served through a window at Wilson’s coffee window.

The creation is the brainchild of Jake Ansbro and Patrick Brown of EATMCR and Sax Arshad of The Zanna Group, with former PBK and Takk chef Lewis Loughman behind the delicious bakery treats. Already known for resembling an old-world New York, the new foodie addition will bring a taste of the Big Apple right to the Northern Quarter with its casual grab-and-go concept.

Traditional doughnut fillings will be available such as raspberry jam, chocolate custard and vanilla custard, as well as regular specials. This month, customers will be able to enjoy a collaboration with local dessert restaurant Black Milk, with a Kinder Bueno filled doughnut, as well as a host of vegan doughnuts. Doughnuts are priced at £3.50, with specials priced at £4. Freshly baked cookies include milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate and double chocolate chip for £3.50.

To celebrate next Thursday’s launch, guests will be able to enjoy doughnuts for just £1 all day (til they’re gone, at least!) on Thursday, March 12.


Gooey Co co-founder, Jake Ansbro said:

“We’re really excited to bring Gooey to the Northern Quarter freshly baked cookies + donuts. After daily sell outs in our soft launch, we’re confident the appetite for Gooey is strong. This has been a real labour of love for us, something we’ve been waiting on the right moment for over a year and we’re looking forward to seeing everyone enjoying our new offering.”

Gooey will be serving fresh cookies daily, with doughnuts available Wednesday-Sunday. Gooey will be open from March 12.
