We're bringing people together this Valentine's Day with a collaborative sundae, thanks to the sweethearts at My Sweet Gluttony bakery.

That's right: the cupcake sundae IS BACK, and this time it's decked out with our strawberry ice cream and seasonally-appropriate sprinkles. We'll be serving it all weekend or until all the cupcakes are devoured, which is exactly what happened last time.

It's February, and that means it's Girl Scout Cookie month in Manayunk!

In the unending pursuit of deliciousness, one of our favorite tactics is mashing different things we love together. That's why we herald the sundae as the ideal canvas: there are very few limits to what can one can create.

The Cupcake Sundae is our latest creation, and it comes by way of our friends at My Sweet Gluttony. We take a decadent, freshly baked cupcake, and top it off with ice cream instead of the traditional frosting.

Come by soon, because quantities are limited and we're only serving it this Saturday and Sunday!

We'll have the livestream up in our shop, so you can check it out while you partake in some butter pecan.

'Tis the season for pizzelle cones!

Inspired by Italian Christmas cookies, we handcraft these cones from scratch and flavor them with anise seeds. To maintain a high level of festivity, we top each cone off with a ring of white chocolate.

This is our last week of operation before a brief Christmas break: we'll be closed starting on December 23rd and then open for the new year on January 2nd. Now's the time to load up!

Happy Small Business Saturday, everyone!

To help you make your weekend a little more delicious, we're offering hand-packed pints of ice cream for just $6 all day long. Now is the time to stock up!

We're also upping our merch game and introducing Tubby Robot hats for the first time ever! We think they'd look pretty great perched atop the dome of the ice cream fan in your life. Our stock of enamel pins has been replenished as well, so like, just keep that in mind.

Tonight is your last chance to pick up some pints for turkey day, because we're closed tomorrow for Thanksgiving.

Have a great holiday! We'll see you on Friday.

It's getting cold out there, but we don't mind a bit. We're open all year round, and this is our favorite time of year to serve the warmest, comfiest sundaes.

For your consideration: Hot Apple A La Mode, a fan favorite sundae made with fried hand-cut granny smith apples.
