I have been going to More Than Just Ice Cream since the 80's. After this afternoon, I will never eat there again. I was so angry when we left that I was tempted to stop strangers in the street to tell them to never eat there

I am a regular here, and the staff has always, since day two, remembered me and made me feel at home. The lunch and dinner menu is extensive - with comfort food that is absolutely delicious. The chicken salad is unreal! Desserts are huge and they have a great selection of Ice Cream flavors.

Pros: friendly service, great desserts, good food

Cons: need an update

Great place to get real, non-froyo ice cream. Nice place to sit and eat it too! Service was slow, but I didn't mind as they were friendly.

More Than Just Ice Cream has that old school ice cream parlor feel. Personally I have only had ice cream there, but that was enough to make me happy. They carry a wide selections of flavors and the milk shakes are also great!!

SO GOOD. My friend took me here a while back and said "you have to get the guacamole." She was right. If you love guac, go to MTJIC and get it TODAY. Made fresh to order and it's absolutely perfect.

Man o man -- MTJIC makes a deep dish apple pie in a turkey roasting pan, it is 6" high of apples at least, very little crust, warm, cinnamony, can be breakfast or dinner, and definitely to share. The other baked goods are also out of this world. The pumpkin mousse pie at Thanksgiving is world class. But the PIE, sigh...

I work right near MTJIC, so I go there a couple times a month. I love the food, and the waitstaff are so friendly and remember the regular customers.

I'm getting a bit tired of their menu, although their chicken quesidillas and soup specials are perfect every time. They offer 2 specials daily that aren't always the most inspiring.

Also--it's pretty dirty in there, check the air vents out.

I know this all sounds negative, but I love MTJIC and have been a loyal customer for almost 4 years...I just need a shake up on the menu.

for my group of 20-somethings on a budget, this is our favorite place to take over for birthdays or just nights out with the girls. The food is tasty and inexpensive, the ice cream is wonderful, and it's a byo with plenty of wine glasses to borrow. I've never waited for a table for 4-6 at dinner time, and you can stuff yourself for about $15 including tip. Just a word of warning- walk or cab over if you can. Garages are expensive in this neighborhood and street parking is tight. Getting your meal might take a while if you have a larger group, so bring plenty of wine!

Fantastic Ice Cream and delicious food. Great comfort food and it is the kind of place where everything on the menu is delicious. Don't listen to the miserable people who write bad reviews just to whine about something. This place has been flourishing for over 15 years. That should tell you something.

Honestly I enjoyed the space of the former location, but the draw for me really wasn't the space or the menu but the apple pie. The ice cream is good, but the warm apple pie is better. I have lived in NYC for the last few years and over the weekend a friend and I went in for some ice cream. We decided to split a 'slab' of pie and it was just as good as I remembered it to be. I can get many things in New York, there are countless choclatiers and bakeries -- but no substitute for the pie.

Even better than the pie is it a la mode....which is why it is an institution.

Pros: Ice Cream that is not Breyers brand; homemade apple pie

Cons: a little pricey for the menu fair

I ordered the thai rice noodle salad which was quite bland. Everyone else seemed to be fine with what they ordered (burgers and chicken salad) The ice cream is delicious and extremely smooth.

Pros: ice cream

This place has a great selection of sundaes made with hard ice cream or soft. They have a medium sized variety of flavors and toppings. Not the most exotic array of flavors but the quality is really good.

This is the type of place that gets good reviews b/c people WANT a great little place to talk about. The reality is that it doesn't live up to expectations.

We had a turkey sandwich - the turkey was dry and tasted like it was a week old. My partner's noodles were awful. Now, I'm picky, so if it was only me who didn't like it, that would be one thing. But my partner can eat just about anything and she hated it too. We left hungry and ate somewhere else. That is the first time that has ever happened.

Don't believe the hype. An overpriced ice cream parlor with a cafeteria-ambience restaurant on the other side of the curtain does not deserve to be a "Philly institution." The food is bland, though largely proportioned, and people still seem to gain an overriding joy from seeing large slices of apple pie (whatever the quality of the pie). I guess that's what keeps the myth going.

Everything is huge, everything is rich, everything is worth every penny. There is nothing better than always knowing that the desserts at More Than Just Ice Cream will be fantastic. I take friends there all the time, and not once has there been a complaint. You can't beat the hours either when you feel like a late night snack.

MTJIC has in my opinion has gotten to be a Philly institution. It's name says it. It isn't a fancy restaurant so don't expect table cloths and candles.
It IS a pleasant place to meet friends, to have a reasonably priced meal and, yex, to get a dessert with high caloric values. The menu has varied offerings in the line of sandwiches and soups. And there are usually two or three specials for those who something more. As for the desserts, I'd suggest you try them ... there are a lot of options.

This is the kind of place that really does have something for everyone. With its friendly diner vibe and mammoth dessert portions, MTJIC is a locals' favorite, but also a find for visitors in search of a family-friendly spot for lunch or…
