Ms. Pac-Man

Despite its origins as a bootleg modification for the original Pac-Man, 1981's Ms. Pac-Man eventually became the most successful American-produced arcade game of all time. It's more than just the addition of a bow and mole: Ms. Pac-Man features four different maze layouts and introduces a degree of randomness to the ghosts' patterns.

Music is coming back to Manayunk in a big way! The Sing Us Home festival is running on May 5th and 6th, and we're partnering with them to offer a limited-time sundae.

The Sing Us Home Sundae Experience is based on our new Dulce de Leche ice cream, and we lovingly pair it with a toasted churro, caramel sauce, and whipped cream. We'll be serving it up through the festival itself, so reserve a 2-day ticket to see some amazing local bands and pick up a sundae while you're at it.

Sorry everyone: we'll be closed today due to an equipment malfunction.

We'll be ready for action with a full lineup of ice cream on Wednesday -- try to hold out until then!

Today is Tubby Robot's 6th anniversary!

We're celebrating today by serving our customary ice cream hoagies, which are delicious homemade puff pastries filled with the ice cream of your choice. We're also selling more sundaes than can fit on our menu board, so if you're looking for something specific just ask!

Co-owners Chris and Steve will be in the shop to chat all night, and we're looking forward to seeing many of the folks who have helped make our little shop something special for the past six years. Here's to many more!

We've heard that everyone is Irish today, whether they want to be OR NOT, so we have a few specials to help you cope with your newfound heritage. We have "Irish Potatoes" from My Sweet Gluttony, which are traditionally prepared confections made with cream cheese, coconut, and cinnamon.

You can also request Lucky Charms as a topping on any cup-based ice cream menu item. TASTE THE RAINBOW! Wait, no, that's the other one.

As demanded by many of you, we're making peanut butter-infused G.W. Carver sundaes for one more week!

This time we're starting with twice as many Peanut Butter Ganache cookies from My Sweet Gluttony. Let's see you eat all of THESE!

February 24, 2023

We've been hearing calls for years to make a sundae for all the peanut butter fans out there. They pile through our mail slot, they fill up our inboxes, they slide into our DMs. You can stop now! The call has been answered.

Today we're introducing the G.W. Carver. It's assembled with Chocolate Peanut Butter ice cream, peanut butter sauce, Reese's Pieces, whipped cream, and a Peanut Butter Ganache cookie baked by our friends at My Sweet Gluttony.

Supplies are limited, so get them while you can!

It's almost time for the BIG GAME.

To help you get in a football state of mind, we've teamed up once again with our friends at My Sweet Gluttony to bring you a new sundae: The Super Cookie Bowl!

A custom chocolate chip cookie bowl is paired with the ice cream of your choosing, hot fudge, and green whipped cream. Score big by attacking the ice cream, then enjoy a gooey cookie as a sweet extra point!

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!
