Best Milkshake in the U.S.A. Made Right Here in Philadelphia

Franklin Fountain in Old City Takes Top Honors in U.S.A. Today

Franklin Fountain Old City Philadelphia Best Milkshake According to U.S.A. TodayThis old time ice cream parlor & soda fountain in Old City is named after Mr. Benjamin Franklin himself who lived just a few blocks away. They are not just selling  painstakingly crafted ice cream but an experience.  The interior has been lovingly restored to showcase a beautiful tin ceiling & mosaic floors.  The employees wear traditional garb.  There are antiques upon antiques.  The ice cream is delicious.

They also have a conscience when sourcing their ingredients.  The milk & cream are from the surrounding counties & they obtain ingredients locally.  As someone who loves to cook & make things I can vouch that a superior ingredient makes a superior product.
