This is the stuff of sweet dreams.
If you, like me, join the small percentage of the population who just so find themselves frequently driving over to the local Tesco at 11pm in their PJs for ‘just a little treat’, you’ll be pretty chuffed to hear that those days are finally over, thanks to the opening of the UK’s first-ever drive-in dessert restaurant: Your Girl Can Bake. Only, there’s one slight issue for us Londoners, at the moment. We’ll need to make a trip up to Manchester to reap the benefits of this heavenly new spot — but we pray that one day this concept may arrive in the Big Smoke.
A judgement-free place where guests can stuff their face with sugar until they’re green in the face, the brand new drive-in opened in Manchester just a matter of weeks ago, with 24-year-old Ikraa Riaz at the helm of the business. Becoming a foodie phenomenon in just a few short weeks, the humble bakery has seen people from all over the country driving to Manchester to test out the innovative drive-in restaurant – which boasts a super sweet menu packed full of sugary goodies.

Providing guests with a resting table that sits over both doors when the windows are down, guests can order up an absolute storm at the drive-in, with tons of dishes fitting on the genius creation for the whole car to tuck into. Think waffles drenched in chocolate, huge bowls of pick n mix, moreish cookie dough topped with a huge selection of chocolates, chocolate fondue, brownies and so much more.
For guests that aren’t blessed with a raging sweet tooth, there’s also a number of delish dishes available to try, too, including nachos, samosa chaat, the far-less chocolatey Indian dessert Falooda, and even Gulab Jamun.
Learning to bake from a young age, Riaz and her team create each and every dish by hand, offering a fresh, delicious experience for sweet lovers to enjoy.
We know London gets spoiled with new and exciting places, but we have to admit that we’re green with envy about this one, Manchester. Fingers crossed that we may one day get this blessing.
Your Girl Can Bake is open Monday-Tuesday 5pm-midnight, Thursday-Friday 5pm-midnight and Saturday-Sunday 1pm-midnight. If you fancy a road trip, you’ll find it at Capricorn House, 58-60 Higher Ardwick, Manchester, EMEA M12 6.
