If you answer savory when someone asks you ‘savory or sweet,’ you can just move along to the next article, because we’re talking all about the best places to find sweet treats on Main Street.
If you ask us, there’s never a wrong time to eat something sweet, but there’s something about the summer that makes you forget that you were working for that bikini bod and makes you crave something sweet to indulge in.So, we took the liberty to taste our way down Main Street for you and bring you this lineup of our favorite Manayunk sweet treats. With a selection like this, there’s no way we could choose a winner, but we will warn you, don’t go eating all of them at once like we did.
Chloe’s Corner: Banana Split
Every bite from Chloe's Corner transports you back to being ten years old on a summer afternoon. From the ooey-gooey hot fudge sauce to the strawberries and pineapple on the Banana Split, your sweet-tooth will be satisfied. The Chocolate Banana Milkshake is sure to put a smile on your face and keep you cool on a hot day too. Be sure to try all of their other favorites including their Water Ice and Manayunk Mixers!
Insomnia Cookies: Cookiewich
How do you make fresh baked Insomnia Cookies even better? Take your choice of two warm cookies and sandwich your favorite ice cream flavor between them and you’ve got yourself a cookiewich. The trick here, you have to eat it faster than it can melt! They also have brownies to die for, and even gluten-free and vegan options too.
