Avoid cravings with all natural desserts from 3 Squared
EVERYONE knows you can have too much of a good thing and that just a little of what you like can go a long way. But what if you could indulge yourself without actually overindulging? Well, we think we’ve found the answer – come with us as we go on a journey of discovery to the Shangri La of snacking.
Turn off Cross Street and into the Royal Exchange Arcade and there, on the right-hand side, just down from the flower-adorned entrance, nestles 3 Squared, a café with a real difference. The first ‘free-from’ food place in Manchester, Katie McIntosh’s health-conscious outlet offers sit-down meals and takeaway ‘express’ options. With an ever-expanding menu, there’s a growing number of both savoury breakfast, lunches and dinner choices – and also sweet.

Enjoy daily changing flavours of cookies (think cranberry, macadamia, date and cinnamon), cakes and bakes including carrot and cinnamon, and Bliss Balls (in hazelnut, pistachio and raspberry flavours) for on-the-go delights, or take a seat and dig into the likes of Protein Pancakes or Breakfast Pancakes with Yoghurt and Compote, Dark Chocolate and Pistachio Tart, or even the Warm Brownie with Coconut Cream.
Katie explains that everything at 3 Squared is cooked, baked and hand-made on site each day. This may not sound like a tall order, but you’d be surprised how many cafes and restaurants buy in their desserts and re-sell, rather than passionately creating each menu item daily and to order. Most of their sweet snacks are vegan and free from gluten, refined sugars and dairy.
‘We are a place that caters for everyone – whether you’re massively invested in good nutrition, scratching the surface or perhaps just fancy something light and energizing. Our dessert range is vegan friendly, but if you’re not vegan you certainly won’t be missing out. In order to feel different and better, you have to try something new that’s going to be sustainable for you long-term - that’s what we are here to help you achieve. Our team absolutely love talking to customers about the difference a few small changes can make, so please join us for a dairy free coffee and lovingly made all-natural dessert when you’re in need of an uplifting addition to your day.”
