Brotherly Love: Saveur Hearts Franklin Fountain… And So Do We

This month, Saveur kicked off a summer sweets roadtrip with a visit to our boys Ryan and Eric Berley at their awesome ice cream parlor. The writers dug the house-made ice creams and fizzy phosphates, of which our favorite is the grapey Japanese Thirst Killer made with orgeat, bitters and grape juice.

Philly has been all over the national pubs this summer. Here’s a taste:

More love for the Franklin Fountain, this time directed at its Lightning Rod sundae. The ingredients: (1) dark chocolate brownie, (2) scoops coffee ice cream, (2) shots espresso, coconut flakes, pretzels, chocolate-covered espresso beans, (1) Adavan. –Forbes Traveler
