Candy Café (Macclesfield Street) | Asian Desserts & Bubble Tea
Just as its name indicates, Candy Café is a sweet spot hidden on Macclesfield Street. Once through a narrow red door, and up some stairs to the first floor you’ll be transported to a sugar-worshipping emporium which presents cheery, summer-ready Asian desserts and bubble tea in over 30 varieties.
Think firm and bouncy Guilinggao (a jelly-like Chinese medicine, also eaten as a dessert and known as ‘turtle jelly’), smooth and cooling Mango Sago with Coconut Milk, and refreshing fruit smoothies.
Crystal Snow Ice might sound like something that Elsa from Frozen would create, but it’s actually a popular Taiwanese pud made from shaved blocks of frozen milky ice.
Just don’t tell your dentist…
Candy Café also provides free Wi-Fi for its customers and is student-friendly, offering them a 10% discount.
