Sonic the Hedgehog (Mega Play)

Sega's 1991 mascot title Sonic the Hedgehog was converted for the Mega Play arcade system in 1993. It pulls the same visuals and high-speed platforming game play from the beloved home version, but only contains 4 zones and features an arcade-friendly time limit element.

To fans of our seasonal Peppermint White Chocolate ice cream: YOUR TIME HAS COME.

Our first batch of Peppermint White Chocolate is now available ( in take-home half gallon form ) at Lucky's Roadside Stand for one day only. There are a few other favorite flavors to choose from, too!

They're also selling hot chocolate bombs from Sweet Elizabeth's, which means you can orchestrate an incredible evening from one convenient location: Burgers from Lucky's, Hot Chocolate from Sweet Elizabeth, and ice cream from Tubby Robot.

We don't know about you guys, but that's the sort of meal we could die happy with.

Manayunk looks more festive than ever this holiday season, and we're doing our best to be a unique part of it.

Our homemade LED window display has been outfitted with several brand new animations, and we'd love it if you voted for Tubby Robot in the Manayunk Gets LIT contest!

Participants can vote on a daily basis, so vote early and vote often.

Deep, rich, and made from scratch, it's sure to keep you warm on a cold night. With a variety of toppings and more in the works, we suspect you'll be coming back for more.

Happy November, everyone!

We're starting the month off with a brand new item: The Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cake Sundae.

Based on yet another mouthwatering creation from our friends at My Sweet Gluttony, this sundae incorporates a generous piece of Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cake drizzled with homemade frosting. As always with the best things in life, supplies are limited.

Hey punk, are you ready to FALL?

Strap into a five-point harness and rappel down a mighty SICKamore only to find the ground covered with DEATH. That's right, dead leaves as far as the eye can see! Hold the tears for your brethren as you storm the pumpkin fields and let them know grim retribution is here to give them a flannel-clad HIGH FIVE.

This week we have Apple Oatmeal Muffin Sundaes, which are built around the titular baked goods made by our friends at My Sweet Gluttony. Request a scoop of our Pumpkin Pie ice cream to complete the chain of AUTUMNAL GLORY.

After a long year of streetscape construction, Main Street has been freshly repaved and looks incredible!

Come check out the neighborhood's transformation and treat yourself to a Walnut Coffee Cake sundae, which is back for the first time since May. These sundaes are built upon Famous Walnut Coffee Cakes baked by our friends at My Sweet Gluttony, and you'll be beaming with autumnal spirit after the first spoonful.

We have been extremely fortunate to have received no damage to our building during the night's storms and continuing flooding. We feel for our neighbors who are currently contending with the aftermath of the highest local water levels in recent memory.

There are a lot of folks walking out on Main Street, and we plan on being open during our standard business hours to serve anyone looking for a distraction from... everything. We'll be open as long as the utilities hold out.

Fan-favorite flavor Mint Cookie is back in action, and it's still dang good.

August 02, 2021

We're honored to be included in the Inquirer's list of "Best Banana Splits", and even happier to learn more about the history of one of the most classic sundaes of all time!
