A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

IMG_0400Franklin Fountain has been on my “must go to” list for some time now. I had heard about it years ago on some food show, and now that we were finally in Philly, how could I pass up heading over? Mind you, the day that we decided to go on this Franklin Fountain mission, it was raining BUCKETS! I’m talking sideways rain and wind, heavy rain…it was one of those days where you wonder if the small umbrella you have is even working. Franklin Fountain opened in 2004 on the first floor of a building the family owned (above it are apartments).

IMG_0394The interior is quaint, a few small tables and a lot of nostalgic items.

IMG_0395 Service was quick and we grabbed a table down in the back.

We tried the strawberry milkshake, it was so thick you could barely drink it through the straw! Yum! A raspberry lime rickey is on the top right and bottom right is a coconut ice cream cone.

What’s your favorite ice cream treat?
