Franklin Fountain is a recently opened soda fountain down in Old City, quite nearby the 2nd and Market subway stop. Newly reopensed for the Spring, they now feature their own recipe of ice cream, aside from their amazing menu of sundaes, sodas, milkshakes, and teas. Friendly staff dressed in period (early 1900's) clothes just add to the atmosphere - watch for one of the owners and his waxed handlebar mustache! The store itself is a bit tight, if cozy. A treat after dinner, or perhaps in the afternoon - but at any time, a wonderful place to visit.
