Delicious and great portion

Has the WHYY with the praline and it was absolutely perfect. The ice cream is sweet, creamy and smooth. The caramel, praline and chocolate in my mix were all delightful. I highly recommend the WHYY flavor-lots of caramel and chocolate covered pretzels.

My son had a double scoop of orange sorbet and cinnamon ice cream. The wait time was not long at all, even though the line was long. There is even a pitcher of water for the customers. Not too many places to sit and eat, but there was a small counter. Near the entrance to Reading Terminal Market.

Bassetts is located near the main entrance of Reading Terminal near Old City coffee and Pearl's Oyster Bar, its impossible to miss! There is almost always a short line, but the staff is extremely fast and efficient so don't let the wait scare you.

This ice creamery has daily flavors as well as the standard fare. The prices are from $3-$7 depending on the size serving. Delicious and fresh ingredients.

Located inside Reading Market get yourself a delicious cone (maybe make it a double!) Who doesn't love ice cream!!! Come early because the market closes at dinner time.

Love Bassets ice cream! You won't find it in many stores or Ice Cream shops. I guess it's good I can't get Bassets easily, i'd be way overweight! Anyway when looking for the best ice cream you can't go wrong Bassets!

Ice cream here is really good! We didn't realize how big the portions were, with 2 adults and 2 kids we could have easily shared.
