Weckerly’s is an old-fashioned scoop shop on Girard in Fishtown, and it doesn’t get nearly as much foot traffic as it should, given how good the ice cream is. They specialize in small batches of seasonal flavors, like honeysuckle and cinnamon toasted oat, which means you don’t really know what you’re going to get when you walk through the door, but we’ve still never had a flavor that we don’t love. Probably the best thing they do here is their ice cream sandwiches, which change just about as often as their flavors do, and have ridiculous crusts made out of things like shortbread and coffee cake.
