Metropolitan Bakery’s flagship 19th Street shop will sell pints of Little Baby’s Ice Cream. Prior to this, the super-premium desserts weren’t available anywhere near the area - you had to go all the way to Northern Liberties, East Passyunk or West Philly to score.
Look for a new ice cream flavor based on Metro’s popular cookie - the sour-cherry-chocolate-chip-sea-salt deal - as well as one of the vegan flavors, possibly starting with coconut chai. If you’re in the area tomorrow, Little Baby’s will be serving scoops from a mobile cart at the Metropolitan Gallery’s First Friday party. The event runs from 6-9 PM at 250 South 18th Street, and in addition to the ice cream, will feature live music along with the art.
