During a recent trip to Philadelphia, this little gem was just down the street. We stopped each afternoon for our ice cream fix. Lots of flavors and the staff is super friendly.

The food here was slightly above average for a diner. We split some guacamole (very good) and a burger and pork sandwich which were just okay.

More Than Just Ice Cream is Philadelphia's favorite spot for delicious dishes of your comfort! After our famous Ice Cream shop took off in the community, we expanded our menu to much more than just dessert! Today, we proudly serve everything from sandwiches and salads, to things on the sweeter side. Try something delectable like out Cowboy Burger smothered in BBQ sauce on a brioche bun, or our Chicken Quesadilla packed with flavor. You can't forget to save room for dessert at More Than Just Ice Cream- be sure to save room for our famous Mile High Apple pie, and of course, the ice cream! With our friendly service and even better food, come see why we're still one of the longest running restaurants in Philly at More Than Just Ice Cream!
