“May be the Best Ice Cream I've Ever Had”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

Want to try something VERY different? Little Baby's ice cream is some of the highest quality Ice cream I have ever had.

But it is still only ice cream, and you can probably find good ice cream without a search or planning a trip. So if you're local and looking for a good vanilla cone, yea they have one, you will not be disappointed.

However if you are interested in trying something new, (flavors well out side Howard Johnson's 43 flavors) this place is worth to trip. 4 of us made a 35 minute drive for ice cream and each of us will do it again next time we are in Philly.

The service was outgoing and we sampled several flavors before making our choices. The "all bagel" flavor still has us trying to figure out how they did that. Check their website before you go but understand they do not have all flavors available all the time.

IMO, the Cardamom Caramel has a little too much cardamom, but who ever thought that would be an ice cream critique? It is an imaginative list of flavors, very well done.

Be aware it come at a cost, prices are double or more than what you would pay for a good ice cream, ($8/pint).

P.S. Get it in a cookie sandwich for a very special treat.

“Delicious and different ice cream!”
Reviewed April 4, 2014

Love their ice cream espacially their Coconut Chai flavor. They have a variety of dairy and non-dairy flavors and they all taste good. Their customer service, however, is not consistent; sometimes there is an employee that is friendly and outgoing, sometimes there is one that doesn't even smile or speaks, and sometimes you get one that is very rude and only cares if your ordering a kid's scoop for real (having my son sitting at the table). Other than that, this ice cream is worth to try!

Little Baby's comes up with original flavors and then creates ice cream (and non-dairy ice cream also) that is so good that you believe you sweet potato with burn marshmallows is thanksgiving in a cup. Bravo.

“Yum!”
Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

I've had their Earl Grey Siracha ice cream and a few others that were unusual but delicious. Well worth the trip to northern Fishtown. Their cookie sandwiches are awesome too. Yum.

“Another uniquely awesome ice cream shop.”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

They have awesome ice cream. Well worth the extra pennies you spend on the quality ice cream. They have local full fatty goodness cream made ice cream as well as non-dairy ice cream you would never guess to be different. Very original flavor combinations that are divine!
