I dream about this ice cream! The creamiest, most flavorful I have ever had. My favorite is the black cherry and chocolate together! Heaven in a bowl!!!

The milkshake was great. My wife got the Cinnamon ice cream and loved it. It was extremely creamy and the flavor was rich and delicious. The workers could be a little nicer though.

Lovely ice-cream. Not the very best but pretty good. Worth the queue on a crowded day at RT market. Would certainly go back. The mango flavour was lovely as was the French Vanilla.

This is one of three things that I come down to Philly for when I make my annual trip. I love Bassets ice cream especially on a waffle cone.
