Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Konami's 1989 title Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a side-scrolling beat-em-up starring the eponymous reptiles. All four turtles are playable, though the difference between them is purely aesthetic. Power up by eating pizza you find in the trash!

Today is Small Business Saturday! Come down to Main Street Manayunk to support your local merchants AND get a head start on your holiday shopping.

To join in on the festivities, we're offering some exceedingly rare discounts on take-home favorites:

  • T-shirts and women's tanks for $20

These offers are for one day only, so come down early while supplies last!

We know you're all scrambling for last minute "fixins", so we figured we'd make your Thanksgiving preparations a little more sweet.

We've brought back our from-scratch hot chocolate! As before, you can choose to top it with marshmallows, whipped cream, or even a scoop of ice cream to assemble the ever-dangerous Tubbygato. Come get one for the road while you pick up some last-minute pints for your turkey day dessert!

We will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, but we'll be back as usual on Friday.

Graham crackers, toasted marshmallows, and chocolate ice cream: THE GANG'S ALL HERE.

The S'more Sundae is back, and it's ready to help keep the fresh autumnal chill out of your soul.

Each sundae starts with a pair of jumbo marshmallows toasted to order, browned on the edges in classic campfire tradition. Get 'em while they're hot!

It's been a very long two and a half years, but we're pleased to announce that Wall-O-Vision has finally returned to Tubby Robot.

Once again we'll be rotating weekly through a curated list of classic arcade games. This week we're continuing exactly where we left off in March 2020: with Vs. Super Mario Bros. We're working on some technical upgrades to further improve "Your Favorite Place to Play Video Games on an Alley Wall", so look out for those soon.

Oh yeah! We have indoor seating again as well. We sort of forgot how this is all supposed to work, so please bear with us as we get re-acquainted with being a fully-functional eating establishment.

Fall is here, and we're ready to help you do it RIGHT.

For your autumnal consideration: The year's first batch of Harvest Apple is now on tap, which we make with several pounds of freshly minced apples and a host of cozy spices. Also available is our Pumpkin Pie ice cream, for those looking for something a little more gourd-esque.

If you're aiming to truly embrace the season, get them BOTH and take a one-way ticket to FLANNELTOWN.

Did you miss our ice cream sandwiches? They're back every Thursday night this summer as part of Manayunk's Stroll the Street festivities!

This one features our Chunky Cherry ice cream, which has also made a triumphant return as one of our summer fruit flavors. These cookies are once again lovingly crafted by our friends at My Sweet Gluttony, who continue to knock it out of the park.

June 08, 2022

We're on the precipice of getting bright sunny days on the regular, so we're beginning to churn up our fruit-filled summer flavors.

We haven't made sorbet since [checks notes] good lord, TWENTY NINETEEN! Mango sorbet is back this week, and it's a refreshingly sacchariferous way to beat the heat. It's also another great option for our lactose intolerant friends out there!

May 20, 2022

Our shirts are IN! They came out better than we dared to hope, with a beautiful print on huggable super-soft material.

If you didn't pre-order, we currently have limited availability in the shop including unisex sizes XS through 3XL. We even have a few women's tank tops so you can be prepared for the summer months!

May 05, 2022

People have been asking for it over the course of the year, but now we're happy to announce that fried ice cream is back just in time for Cinco de Mayo!

Come savor our unique blend of ice cream, buttery cinnamon crunchies, and a drizzle of honest-to-goodness honey. We'll serve it for at least the rest of the week, but after that? WHO KNOWS.

April 17, 2022

Happy Easter to all who are celebrating!

We'll be closed today, April 17th. Our normal schedule will resume on Wednesday!
