More Than Just Ice Cream  - 1119 Locust St., Philadelphia, PA

Yes that’s right this place has more than just Ice Cream. I scream you scream we all scream for ice cream. Open Monday – Sunday 11am – 11pm.  A great place for a late night treat.

This establishment has everything from a satisfying breakfast to a hometown diner menu.  Follow that up with a waffle sundae and you are good to go.  The inside is like an old time ice cream parlor.  The staff is warm and friendly.  It is not uncommon to find a staff from the medical center enjoying a late night snack.  So go ahead indulge I am sure a doctor will come around shortly to resuscitate you. 

The Quiche of the day is served with a balsamic mixed green salad. If you are carving something a little bit more then there large plate selections are for your taste buds.  Try the Cajun Turkey Meatloaf topped with stewed tomatoes.  To tempt your taste buds you can order Asian Grilled Salmon with wasabi mashed potatoes or Southern Fried Chicken – yummy. 

Do not forget to try there Famous Mile High Apple Pie made with layers of sweet honey crisp apples topped with the finest flakey butter crust drizzled with warm caramel.  If it is not on the menu you can ask the staff to make you something your sweet tooth will envy. 

Try a slice of the Southern Pecan Pie after all how often to you make it to the south? So indulge in a few calories remember you are in Philly and this is a walking a town.  Take a walking tour to get the burn some of those calories. I recommend the Original Ghost Tour of Philadelphia.  A hot fudge sundae than a tour of the city with a resident dressed up in Halloween attire is my recommendation because there is nothing more pleasing than sweet thick hot fudge sundae.  I truly enjoyed mine.  Nothing says fun more than sweets and a fun way to burn off the calories. 

Take the Original Ghost Tour of Philadelphia.  A guide dressed appropriately will take you on a candle light stroll along the back stress of the secret gardens of Independence Park, Society Hill and the Old City.  The guide is knowledge about the secrets and history of Philadelphia so if you really want to learn the city’s secrets do not miss out.  For more information call 215-413-1997 or log onto http://www.ghosttour.com/philadelphia.html  I promise you will not be disappointed.   
The food at the More Than Just Ice Cream rates 2 1/2 Forks Up it was pleasing but not spectacular.  The ICE CREAM was fabulous along with the Mile High Apple Pie.  The sweets rate 4 Four Forks and I have the waist line to prove it.  I just could not eat one dessert while taking up space.  The ghost tour gets 4 Forks Up because it was simply fun and the walk did me good.
