Franklin Fountain

Franklin Fountain

116 Market St., Philadelphia, PA 19106

In an Old City neighborhood dominated by hoagie joints, this Market Street ice cream parlor is, by design, old school. With a make-it-from-scratch food ethic, antique accents such as polished chrome fountains, and a copper and cherry wood interior design scheme, the Berley brothers have carefully transformed this brick corner row house. Open since 2004, Franklin Fountain’s hand-made ice cream is still the main draw, but there is also candy, fudge, a bakery, and milkshakes, all made with Lancaster County milk and cream. Lemon ice and seasonal sorbets are among the non-dairy choices.
