A quick walk for ice cream when Mr. Softee (the soft ice cream truck) doesn't drive by the neighborhood.

Eccletic flavored vegan and dairy ice cream and milkshakes. The ice cream is 16% buttermilk fat made from Lancaster county cows (from dairy farms just outside of Philadelphia).

Voted the best ice cream in Philadelphia, and it's just a few blocks away from the house! Flavors change daily and are made in small batches; hurry before they run out!

After a tiring day of touristing, treat yourself to a ridiculously delicious ice cream sundae from Franklin Fountain. Cash only, and defiantly "old-timey" despite having been founded in 2004, but t... read more

Adorable old fashioned ice cream shop with delicious homemade ice cream and a real soda fountain. The building was meticulously restored.

Homemade Ice Cream by The Berley Brothers. The scene at Franklin Fountain is something out of the history books. The 2 owners grew up in a family that ran an antiques shop. Their ice cream parlo... read more

Great gelato in a rainbow of flavors. It takes great restraint not to visit this place daily, but when I go, I'm partial to the affogato, which is a shot of espresso over a scoop of gelato.

Best gelato in the city. They have a few locations. South 13th Street, 20th Street, Walnut Street in Old City (they have pizza too) and Passyunk East in South Philly. Amazing and innovative flav... read more

The gelato is amazing, though maybe not "best in the world" as they claim (if you've been to Italy you can be a snob with me). This spot is important as a jump off for the incredible food scene nearby

Gourmet ice cream in Cedar Park! Less than five blocks away just off 49th and Baltimore. My favorite is the Chipotle Chocolate, of course. Dairy free options, too.

Vegan and Regular fancy ice creams. Fun flavors.

Local, interesting flavors, worth a stop. Also, google it and watch their weird ad. It doesn't seem like that ad would sell ice cream, but it's also hard to forget.

Great soft serve greek yoghurt. You also have the "triangle" right outside of the Igloo, nice spot to sit at

For a sweet treat closer to home, try the frozen yogurt at Igloo. Select as many flavors or toppings as you want, and only pay for the weight of the items in your cup. Enjoy at home or at the wonde... read more

This is one of my favorite frozen yogurt stores! They always have chic and delicious fro yo and sorbet flavors.

Another Philly summer tradition you have to try water ice. John's is the best. $

Philly classic! We call Italian Ice "water ice" here for some reason. Great quality. Usually I get ice cream - homemade, delicious, and cheaper than you'd expect!

Serving up classic Philadelphia Water Ice (or italian ice) and ice cream, this neighborhood staple is hard to pass up!

Montreal Wood Burning style bagels. Highly reccommend.

Montreal-style bagels. Get there early to avoid the lines on weekends!

Best water ice and custard in Philly.

Check out Rita's for some Italian ice, or as Philadelphian's like to call it, Water Ice (pronounced 'wudder ice'). Also has great frozen custard desserts.

Rolled ice cream. Expect a line.

Have you ever had "rolled" ice cream? This spot does just that and is quite the addition to the ice cream scene.

Fancy, yummy popsicle shop. Worth a visit! $4 for a popsicle, but will be the best one ever!

Looking for a way to cool off on a hot day, or a light dessert option after a short walk? Head over to the Lil Pop Shop for some lovely ice pops with fantastic flavor combos.

As the website says "Small batch artisan ice pops handcrafted from fresh, local ingredients". Great place for a treat on a hot day.

Good hoagies for very little money.

My friend Kim has had this little market for a long time, and is trying to keep up with the rapidly changing demographics. She has the basics and makes great sandwiches.
