Affogato Days at Elixr Coffee

LBIC-ELIXR-Affogato-2014And on the 8th day, there were affogatos.

On Friday August 15th and 30th the coffee lovers of Elixr Coffee and the sweet teeth at Little Baby’s Ice Cream are bringing back Affogato Days to South Sydenham Street.

What is an affogato you ask? It’s basically the divine marriage of hot, caffeinated espresso with frosty, creamy ice cream. When translated, the Italian drink literally means “drowned” referring to the dollop ice cream swimming in espresso. Yum- said every caffeine junkie and ice cream enthusiast everywhere.


The good people at Elixr Coffee want all of Philadelphia to experience this mouth-watering treat featuring Little Baby’s Ice Cream. The collaborators will choose two seasonal ice creams skillfully paired with two unique espressos for the affogato days special. Other great news? There will be both a dairy and vegan option available so everyone can bask in affogato greatness.
