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
This 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.
