There's only one thing for certain that's better than ice cream — really good ice cream! If your taste buds crave more than the average soft serve, then you may want to try these top notch sweet shops, located just a short way from Rittenhouse Claridge.

Capogiro Gelato Artisans
Every morning, the workers at Capogiro Gelato Artisans take locally-sourced ingredients and make fresh batches of each flavor they serve. At this charming, upscale gelateria, customers enjoy traditional favorites like cinnamon, chocolate and hazelnut, as well as unique flavors like honey cumin and Mexican coffee. There are five locations, including one right in Rittenhouse Square.

The Franklin Fountain
Capturing the energy of classic soda fountain stops, The Franklin Fountain offers locally-sourced, made-from-scratch ice cream in plenty of delicious flavors like peanut butter, mint chocolate chip, green tea, and more. This family-run ice cream shop is well known for its cleverly named and decadent sundaes, though it also serves banana splits and thick milkshakes.
