A few months ago, we ended a long-term relationship with our waffle iron. We spent a lot of effort trying to repair the situation, but as time went on it became clear that we both needed a clean break.

For a long time, were weren't sure that we'd ever feel a spark like that again. Well, we'd like to introduce our NEW waffle iron. Now we can finally answer the question Cher famously posed in 1998:

Yes, we DO believe in life after love.

Today is our last day of business in 2023, which means it's the last call for Pizzelle Cones!

While you're here, you might as well enjoy a cup of from-scratch hot chocolate or pick up a pint to stock your freezer.

Our staff will be enjoying our customary week off for the holidays, but we'll be back in full force on January 3rd. See you in 2024!

We're in the thick of the holiday season and it's time to GET FESTIVE.

Our fan-favorite Peppermint White Chocolate ice cream has returned! It's swirled with a white chocolate stracciatella and sprinkled liberally with ground-up candy canes, just the way you like it.

If you want to go all-out on Christmas cheer, we highly suggest the Pizzelle Waffle Cones. These specialty cones take the anise-spiced flavoring of the traditional Italian Christmas cookie and mold it into the perfect receptacle for the holly jolly ice cream of your choice.

Saturday is Halloween in Manayunk, and we have a special sundae to help you celebrate it with your whole family!

The Betelgeuse Sundae is our take on the childhood classic "Dirt and Worms". Stripey Vanilla Fudge Ripple ice cream is topped with a strata of cookie crumble and infested with big, chonky gummy worms. Come pick one up and start the spooky season properly!

I hope you like autumnal menu items, because we're chock-a-block like Plymouth Rock.

You like Fall ice cream flavors? We have Pumpkin Pie and Harvest Apple -- both uniquely distinct and yet equally delicious.

We also have Walnut Coffee Cake Sundaes ( thanks to My Sweet Gluttony ) and S'more Sundaes, which are always freshly toasted and irresistible. To resist it is useless; it is useless to resist it.

For all the public school students out there in Philadelphia, this is the first week of class! Luckily for you, we've got something sweet waiting at the end of the school day.

Our Peanut Butter and Jelly sundae starts with Peanut Butter Fudge Swirl ice cream and ascends with the addition of straight-up jelly and a custom PB+J cookie baked by My Sweet Gluttony.

We have a limited number of cookies, so come get them while you can!

This is the final day of Manayunk's Stroll the Street, and that means it's the last time we'll be serving ice cream sandwiches until next year!

As always, our ice cream sandwiches are made to order so you can pick the flavor you'd like us to nestle between two fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies. Come and get them while they still exist!

The cookies are made by our friends at My Sweet Gluttony so naturally they are delicious.
