You’re in for a TREAT


We have a new addition to the beautiful Queen’s Arcade and boy, you’re in for a TREAT. If you’re a lover of all things sweet then this is definitely not a place to be missed. With milkshakes described as “liquid gold”, tasty ice cream and frozen yoghurt, there’s definitely a little treat in store for everyone.

TREAT was an idea that happened after owner Sam was on the hunt for something to drink other than coffee, in which he turned to milkshakes. He then began to research and experiment with making his own and decided used Mr Whippy ice cream instead of your standard soft scoop – this resulted in the perfect flavour and texture combination and the rest is history…

Everything at TREAT is made from fresh and local produce – the fruit is delivered every morning from Kirkgate Market and the dairy from local farmers, so you know it’s the good stuff. Although the menu predominantly uses dairy milk, they are able to cater to vegans with the use of soy milk and almond milk in their delicious milkshakes.

The method behind TREAT was to do something that goes against the norm and take the idea of eating out for the desserts out of the dark ages and bring it into the modern. They want you to be able to see what they are making with their open top counter and for you to know where your food comes from, which is sometimes taboo when it comes to dessert making.

Sam says: “We chose Leeds because we believe there is nothing quite like this here. The aim at Treat has always been to create a truly unique environment where people can relax and treat themselves. A great deal of effort has gone in to the design of the shop to make sure it really reflects our brand. We can’t wait for the people of Leeds to experience us.”

Although called TREAT, not only do they do the bad stuff, but also the good stuff too. With frozen yoghurt, juice and smoothies – so if it’s not your cheat day, you can still treat yourself….

They already have a shop in Barnsley which is a little takeaway, but in Leeds they wanted to do something different and make it an environment to stay in. They have incorporated a beautiful minimalist interior (so that the brand can speak for itself) and their approach is modern but welcoming, making TREAT the ideal spot for a little catch up or a meeting.
