We're now serving up "Cookie Season", a specialty sundae based on our Chocolate Mint Chocolate ice cream and topped off with hot fudge, cookie crumbles, whipped cream, and Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies. It's one of our all-time favorites, and what makes it even sweeter is that a portion of the proceeds will go directly to Roxborough Girl Scout Troop 9129.

Frigid temperatures have receded, and our favorite culinary titan is coming out of hibernation: Belgian Waffle sundaes are back.

We still bake them in the shop using our proprietary from-scratch batter, but now they're round and even thicker. Stop by this weekend to eat a waffle and watch the final weekend of Awesome Games Done Quick on Wall-O-Vision!

A public service announcement: this is the final weekend we'll be serving s'more sundaes this season. They're on the way out to make room for other hot menu items, so if you enjoy hot gooey marshmallows you'd best make haste.

Milk and cookies go really well together, but we suspect that Santa might prefer something with a higher butterfat content.

We'll be closed one week for the holidays! Our last day open this year will be Saturday, December 23rd. Our first day open in the new year will be Thursday, January 4th.

This means that Saturday the 23rd is your last chance to partake in Tubby Robot ice cream in 2017. Whether it's a few hand-packed pints to bring to your family Christmas party or a S'more sundae to warm your soul on a chilly day, we're ready to help you close this year out in the sweetest way possible.
