Love this place. Best ice cream around. I never walk past without getting some. As good as it tastes it tastes even better when standing in The Reading Terminal Market for some reason.

Ok - I dare anyone to say this isn't the best ice cream on earth. I recommend the Vanilla Fudge on a Sugar Cone.

This place is fabulous. I take out of town guests here to knock their socks off. The line is usually long, but moves fast. Worth stopping in.

not quite hagen daz but it's really good ice cream - I like that you can get any flavor milkshake and they sell ice-cream already to go in little single service size if you don't want it on a cone

They have the best vanilla fudge and butterscotch vanilla ice cream. They're the only two flavors I eat but I'm sure the other flavors are just as fabulous!

My favorite ice cream in Philly. Cinnamon, coffee, Gadzooks with chunks of chocolate and swirls of Carmel. Cup, cone, waffle bowl or take it home using a bag of dry ice, lasts 4 hours!

To be quite fair, I was as full as a tick when I sampled the ice cream. And sample was all I could do. This is in entrance to the reading terminal market. So much delicious food. So I tasted cinnamon ice cream-the best I have ever had, butter pecan-definitely a 9 out of 10 and pumpkin pie flavor-delicious a... More

Went with a group of friends. Very good selection. TIP: try a sample before you buy. I got the butter pecan along with one of our friends. Both agreed it was more like vanilla with pecans. Other's in our group got different flavors and raved about them. Higher milk far than most creams. Service was very fast and pricing was... More

My favorite from Bassets is the butterscotch vanilla ice cream. Delicious! The line is long, that's how you know that the ice cream is good, but it moves fast, and you can sit at the counter and eat, if you want to take it home they have "cold ice" to pack your ice cream to travel with you. The best.

The pumpkin ice cream was TO DIE FOR! The line was long and disorganized but they seem to be used to it, we were served quickly and we loved it!
