Best of Philly 2009 Dessert

Famous 4th Street Delicatessen

It’s a dessert for the masses. Literally. Just one slice — a roughly two-by-four-by-eight-inch slab — of Famous 4th Street’s checkerboard cake (moist chocolate and vanilla squares bound with a creamy mocha mousse) will both feed and please your whole party. Cake ain’t your thing? How about the three-to-an-order cheese-and-sour-cherry blintzes, the New York-style cheesecake, a black-and-white cookie, or an old-fashioned egg cream? Yeah, we thought so.
