Since 2004, the Berley Brothers have been supplying Philadelphia with scoops of tradition and old-timey flavors at The Franklin Fountain, their Old City ice cream shop.

Franklin Fountain serves up handmade ice cream in an astounding number of flavors including standards like vanilla bean, chocolate and Franklin mint chip along with a few creative options including Green Tea, banana and Teaberry Gum.

The friendly staff at the fully restored soda counter offers 25 different flavors of soda, ice cream sodas, egg creams and milkshakes. On a hot day, quench your thirst with a Thirst Ade made with pressed, whole fruit.

The Experience

For something a little more extravagant, order one of Franklin Fountain’s fantastic sundaes or splits, like the Lightening Rod featuring a dark chocolate brownie with coffee ice cream, a shot of espresso and chocolate covered espresso beans topped with a pretzel rod.

If you’ve yet to satisfy your sweet tooth, the Berley Brothers’ neighboring candy shop Shane’s Confectionary.
