A sweet spot with a view.
Proudly sitting on the beautiful New Islington Marina, alongside cult-fave neighbours Pollen Bakery, Northern Eudaimonia is one of the finest sweet spots around – and they even cater to dogs.
Founded by dessert pro Emma Eskdale, who previously ran Chester’s Funky Cow milkshake bar, the tasty little spot opened its doors for the first time just last October and has been a little spot of happiness for Ancoats dwellers ever since. And you’d hope so, too, since Eudaimonia’s direct Greek translation is ‘happiness, blessedness or human flourishing’.
Beautifully decorated with plush velvets, marble tables and quirky finishings, the use of colour itself brings a flash of joy and cosiness when visiting – that is, until you get a peek at the sugary menu. Stocked up with both vegan and dairy ice creams by Northern Bloc, as well as warmer treats such as waffles and brownies – the dessert café has a little something for all year round, and it’s not just humans they cater for, either.
Keeping our four-legged friends extra happy during their visit, the café also stocks pup-friendly ice cream packed with antioxidants and omega 3 – so they won’t be feeling left out as we chow down on our treats.
Desserts are piled high with toppings of your own choice, including Oreos, blueberries and all the chocolate you can dream of, with speciality coffee, tea and even milkshakes available to pair your dessert of choice with.
The self-described “grown-up” dessert spot is currently offering both dine-in and takeaway, and can be found at Northern Eudaimonia, 6 New Union St, M4 6FQ.
