    If you're in Philly, be sure to stop here! It's a little pricey and the line can get long but well worth it. If you enjoy whipped cream, do not pass it up here! It's house-made and so delicious.

    A must go if you’re in the area. Great decor and their ice cream is one of the best around. Tons of options to choose from; I highly recommend the Whirly Berley and Hydrox Cookie ice creams.

    Amazing ice cream, lines that go down the street and cash only. The entire parlor represents and era long gone. A must in Philly.

    One of the absolute must visit spots, this old school ice cream shop has great sundaes and inventive ice cream flavors. Try the Franklin Mint Sundae or one of the huge banana splits.

    Very expensive but delicious and very quaint! Can get 10% off your total if you have a receipt from Shane's Confectionary just a few doors down.

    Best Ice Cream I ever had in the U.S. Staff and Location reminded me how ice cream parlors may have looked in the 60s. The pic shows the Dr. Doveys Classic Banana Split

    If the line is out the door and around the corner, know that it will probably take ~1.5 hours. Also, it kind of looses its charm when you realize it was established in 2004...

    On summer nights, long lines ripple out the door into, but the wait is worth it for the house-made seasonal flavors like fresh peach, and honeycomb made with booty from the Fountain’s rooftop hives. En savoir plus

    great service! their ice cream was so good & I'd recommend their lemonade afterwards, I'm not sure if they make that themselves as well but it tasted homemade😋

    Walk back in time to this Philly ice cream parlor. If you're really in the mood for ice cream try the Mt. Vesuvius sundae. It deserves a rating on the Trust Network: http://bit.ly/1fr5Mkp

    This old-fashioned soda shop has myriad sundaes in dozens of flavors. I recommend a Cherry Bomb—chocolate ice cream in cherry soda from the fountain—but you can't go wrong here. Cash only!

    So many choices! Great ice cream shop. Loved the hydrox cookie and mint chocolate chip. Cash only though, and it's a bit pricey.

    Get the Mt. Vesuvius – a scoop of chocolate, a scoop of vanilla, perfectly cut cubes of brownies and hot fudge, all topped off with whipped cream and a sprinkling of malt. Our blogger loved it!

    Enter a world of old-time charm with homemade ice cream, milkshakes, egg creams, phosphates and 25 flavors of old fashioned soda by the glass. The sundaes are truly exceptional and very shareable!

    I had the rocky road and it was amazing!! Fresh and perfectly made!! Great ice cream!! Waffle cones were sturdy and didn't fall apart when the ice cream started to melt

    I'm an ice cream lover and a small was the perfect size. Big portions. Expensive but worth the price for the old school ambiance. Cash only. Have a friend grab a seat as you order up front

    Go back in time at this Old City ice cream parlor, where the Berley brothers geek out about historic techniques and handlebar mustaches. Try one of the old-timey sundaes, like the Maple Leaf Rag.

    Ice cream like u have never had before. Weekends the line to get an ice cream can be bigger than most clubs in center city. They had a menu right at the door which can help the process of u choosing!!

    A step back in time... Ice cream is good but the setting is the real treat here. Very authentic ol' timely feel (except prices, of course). Staff also friendly and helpful.

    Even if you've already had dessert, get it again from here. There are a ton of choices from just scoops of ice cream to scoops of ice cream with a brownie, coffee beans, and a pretzel stick.

    Old fashioned ice cream in a vintage building. The root beer floats are gigantic. A medium gets you 2 flavors. The chocolate peanut butter milkshake was excellent.

    The Franklin Fountain has original architectural details like an Art Nouveau–era soda fountain, plus amazing drinks like the Ladies Choice (raspberry soda infused with peach ice cream and sweet cream)

    Amazing. They know each flavor inside and out, and every one is spot on and natural. A delicious throwback. Can't miss.

    If you love chocolate and peanut butter, I recommend going with someone and sharing two of the sundaes: the Mount Vesuvius and Stock Market Crunch. You will not regret it!

    You don't have to go far in Old City for a blast from the past. If coming out of the subway, just walk towards Penn's Landing on the right side of the street to find this gem.

    The Franklin Fountain, dishes up in-house-made ice cream in an old-fashioned soda-fountain setting. The antique cash register pops up not with $ signs but with Franklin sayings. En savoir plus

    Step back in time and enjoy the best ice cream in Philly if not the country with great service. Worth wait every once in awhile.

    Delicious handmade flavors—from chocolate and vanilla bean to Hydrox cookie and Teaberry gum—that make this purveyor of sundry sundaes so much more than an ode to the corner malt shop. En savoir plus

    The ice cream here is worth waiting for. Try the black raspberry, butter pecan and maple walnut. Three of my Franklin favorites.

    It's the best ice cream I had so far, and I thought I already had the best ice cream while in Europe, the hydrox is the best

    Remember the root beer barrel candies. Try the root beer float. Has a spicy flavor, tastes just like the candies.

    This used to be my favorite shop, but upon revisit I don't think their ice cream can justify the long line anymore. Relatively uncreative flavor. And they only let you try 2 flavors max.

    Franklin Mint Chip. Shop aims to exhibit "forgotten flavors of the American past": cherry vanilla, teaberry gum, green tea. Seasonal sorbets, sugar-free flavors and non-dairy ice creams. En savoir plus
