N2 Sweet Cafe
The newest edition to the ice cream landscape, N2 Sweet Cafe is here to stay. The coolest dessert cafe in Philly, this place uses liquid nitrogen to make their sweet treats. You can even see the science it person when you order. You can taste the difference, and it rules. N2 Sweet is like no other, and you need to taste the difference.
Little Baby’s Ice Cream
What it comes to flavors, no one comes close to Little Baby’s Ice Cream. Headquartered in East Kensington with an embassy in Cedar Park, Little Baby’s pushes the envelop every day. New flavors offered throughout the day including earl grey sriracha, chipotle chocolate, and rose pistachio. Our personal favorite is El Vocho: crushed pineapple ice cream and diced jalepanos with fresh mint and cliantro. You could go to this place everyday and experience new flavors. Bonus: they have fun and creepy commercials.
Big Gay Ice Cream
Do you prefer something a bit more simple and familiar? Hit up Big Gay Ice Cream. They have the best soft serve ice cream in all the land. If you grew up on Dairy Queen, this is your spot. No one touches them on the soft serve department, and their topping combinations are incredible. The Bee Arthur is fantastic.
A pillar of the city. Franklin Fountain honors the traditions of the city and does ice cream as it once was years past. Authentic. Bold. And true flavors. When it comes to just plain good ice cream you can’t go wrong with Franklin Fountain. Summer nights there is about 50 people deep, even at midnight. This place is the truth.
