1. Qubed Coffee Lounge

Shakes, glorious freakshakes! This spot caters the most insanely creative shakes I have ever seen. There is nothing better than slurping an over-the-top milkshake, smothered in chocolate, popcorn and pretzels. True heaven! These Insta-famous freakshakes are a foodie´s ultimate glory as they offer one of the most unique tasting experiences in town.

Prepare for a sugar high at Base Woodfire Pizza where some of the best freakshakes are hiding!

Count your lucky stars that these bad boys are only available at Easter so it´s an excellent opportunity for you!
