It's hard to beat a friendly ice cream parlor! More than Just Ice Cream offers sandwiches and salads, but my favorite thing is to have a freshly dipped cone by one of the friendly, efficient folks behind the freezers. Great any afternoon, or on an evening after a show or concert.

my wife and I were looking forward to bringing our 13 year old son to this restaurant just for the desserts, even though we were of course going to have some lunch before our 2 pm theatre show. We arrived at 1245 and we sat down promptly. It is an eclectic place with a very interesting fun menu. The kinda... More

The food here was slightly above average for a diner. We split some guacamole (very good) and a burger and pork sandwich which were just okay.

Went here strictly for dessert on Saturday Nov 12, before a show at the Academy of Music. Upon arrival, we waited to be seated. We were told to sit any where. We picked a small table that was poorly cleaned off, but the waitress jumped right on it, and all was fine, until one of the waiters came by after... More

My family and I went to "More Than Just Ice Cream" for my mother's birthday. We ordered ice cream, apple pie, and a milkshake. The food was delicious and the waiters were nice. I recommend this place for a nice sweet treat with family or friends.

Had a wonderful lunch in this local eatery. A fantastic salad and quiche, the latter exceptionally tasty, filling and with superb pastry. As good as my mums! Our server was very friendly and attentive.

We had a group of 7 who showed up after a meal at GTC next door since we were looking for some good ice cream! We were not disappointed! The Apple Pie ala mode was for about 4-5 people!!!! YUM! We will be back!

MTJIC is a casual, friendly restaurant with food that is similar to pub food, though of higher quality. We enjoyed the fried chicken and waffle sliders as a starter. The portion size was so generous, it is practically a meal by itself. The burger was delicious although cooked to a very well done temperature. The service was great and it... More

Not more than ice cream,but the deserts and ice cream are the leading attractions. Lunch and dinner okay. Gelato would be a welcomed addition

More Than Just Ice Cream is Philadelphia's favorite spot for delicious dishes of your comfort!

After our famous Ice Cream shop took off in the community, we expanded our menu to much more than just dessert! Today, we proudly serve everything from sandwiches and salads, to things on the sweeter side.

Try something delectable like out Cowboy Burger smothered in BBQ sauce on a brioche bun, or our Chicken Quesadilla packed with flavor. You can't forget to save room for dessert at More Than Just Ice Cream- be sure to save room for our famous Mile High Apple pie, and of course, the ice cream!

With our friendly service and even better food, come see why we're still one of the longest running restaurants in Philly at More Than Just Ice Cream!
