It’s been a full decade since brothers Eric and Ryan Berley first opened the doors to this Colonial throwback dessert and soda parlor, and the regular lines out the door prove it’s become a true Philadelphia icon. These tourists aren’t falling for any trap, because the 20-plus flavors of house-churned cream are as authentic as the tin ceiling and antique cash register.
Must-Order: Whirly Berley: chocolate ice cream with nougat, housemade salted caramel and cocoa nibs.
Go Crazy!: The mountainous hot fudge Mt. Vesuvius is probably the best-selling sundae, but we’re suckers for the Lightning Rod, which soups up brownie crumbles with coffee ice cream, a shot of espresso, chocolate-covered beans and a salty pretzel rod beneath swirls of whipped cream.
