The Best Frozen Treats Near The Isle


It’s summertime in the city and temperatures are heating up fast. While it may seem easier to hide in your climate controlled apartment at The Isle, Manayunk is bursting with so many activities that you’ll have to go outside. Luckily, whenever a break is needed there’s plenty of great spots to enjoy a delicious dessert that will cool you down. Here’s a quick guide to the best frozen treats in the neighborhood.


Tubby Robot Ice Cream Factory– Brand new to Manayunk this season, Tubby Robot isn’t like just any ice cream parlor. This place is as fun as it is delicious. The shop’s walls are covered in interactive video games, making it a great place to take the family. Try one of their unique sundaes.


Whirled Peace– This self-serve froyo place is more than just its cute and clever name. Pop by Whirled Peace and enjoy some scrumptious and home-made frozen treats it a cool mod setting. Far from basic, their menu also includes smoothies and artisanal coffee drinks.


Custard & Cakes Creamery– This spot is a Manayunk tradition. Open since 1951, Custard & Cakes Creamery runs a bustling old-school ice cream stand on Ridge Avenue. Their hard and soft serve ice cream is all homemade and we recommend you try both!
