They really try to go out there and go for the more daring flavors of ice cream and I for one really enjoyed the changes that they had in here for the past week.
This time-honored favorite serves up tasty cups and cones in the midst of the bustling Reading Terminal Market. – In Short
Serving up creamy scoops of goodness for well over a century, Bassetts is synonymous in Philly with ice cream. Young and old, locals and tourists alike wander the overflowing stalls of Reading Terminal Market, stopping here for a sweet end to their noshing. With more than 40 flavors on the menu, from double chocolate to champagne sorbet, the ice is available in cup, cone or in mini cartons for those on the go.
Near Rick's Steaks – After finishing an excellent cheesesteaks, head over to Bassetts for some truly great ice cream. You can't go wrong with any of the flavors including traditional vanilla. They are available in stores, but it doesn't taste as good. Busy atmosphere in the Reading Terminal Market.
I scream for Bassett's! – See where it began, including a hundred plus year old marble counter that is still in use. Bassett's has very good mint chocolate chip, moose tracks, and peanut butter swirl ice cream. Now you can get Bassett's at Wawa locations throughout the region but stop by the original location and step back in time. Fast, efficient, and friedly service too.
