“Very creamy”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

Lots of yummy flavors, with descriptions of what's in them. Prices were not bad and service was quick, even when they're busy.

“Heaven”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

So many flavors of homemade ice cream to choose from. Egg nog was divine, peanut butter swirl was awesome, the peanut butter wasn't hard like store bought, it was smooth and creamy like it is in the jar. Any trip to RTM has to end here.

“Delicious ice cream, fun atmosphere, good prices; well worth a visit”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Bassett's ice cream at Reading Terminal Market is a not-to-be-missed Philadelphia experience. Quick, polite service at the counter, lots of flavors to choose from -- with clear descriptions of what's in their more unusual flavors--and moderate prices (a double scoop is $3.50 and you can get two different flavors) make this place a real treat. I grew up in the city, live in the suburbs now, and would not think of going to Center City without stopping at Bassett's. It doesn't matter if it's cold outside or you're full from a big lunch or the market is crowded -- place your order (I highly recommend banana ice cream in a sugar cone), stake out a spot to people-watch for a few minutes, and enjoy.

“Best Ice Cream Around”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

I am not much of an ice cream eater, especially in the middle of winter, but I feel safe in saying that you will not find better ice cream in the Philadelphia area. The quality is outstanding and the variety of flavors reminds me of Baskin Robbins.
