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!

If you listen carefully -- truly carefully -- you can hear them coming. Patrolling the sidewalks, clipboards in hand, eager to fill your shelves with baked delights. The scouts are coming, and there is only one explanation: Cookie Season is here.

The beloved Cookie Season sundae has returned! Featuring our limited-edition Chocolate Mint Chocolate ice cream, this sundae is topped with hot fudge, cookie crumble, and two thin mints for good measure.

Time is running out to pick up your holiday ice cream, but we've got you covered!

We've churned our final batch of Peppermint White Chocolate for 2022, and we even have it available in half gallon format for true connoisseurs. This is also our final week for Gingerbread sundaes, so come stop by before we close for the holidays at the end of Friday, December 23rd!

The holidays can be stressful, but you know what isn't?


We're now serving up Big Gingerbread cookies made by our friends at My Sweet Gluttony, along with a special sundae that pairs a big chunk of cookie with the ice cream of your choosing.

Additionally, holiday favorite Peppermint White Chocolate is now available for all of you seasonal fiends out there. Stock up with a few pints while it lasts!

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!
