The “Cedar Park Embassy” location of Little Baby Ice Cream is now serving ReAnimator Coffee. In addition to single origin and blended hot coffees from ReAnimator they are also offering black and green teas plus a selection of pastries. All of this happens in conjunction with the West Philadelphia location’s new split-day hours.
Under normal circumstances, just putting two of the above names together would be enough to make certain segments of the Foobooz readership completely melt down with joy. But for FedNuts, Pizza Brain and Little Baby’s to all throw in together on a First Friday collaboration? That’s just crazy-pants. In their own words: “It’s just a regular ol’ First Friday Frankford Avenue Food Freakout & Funtacular…”
Do you really need to know any more? Okay, so for those of you who aren’t sold yet, at Pizza Brain, they’ll be slinging chili garlic chicken honey donut pies made with Federal Donuts’ fried chicken and plain honey donuts. Next door at Little Baby’s, they’ll be scooping pumpkin spice latte donut ice cream, which is basically a deconstructed FedNuts pumpkin spice latte donut, served in ice cream form, made with Federal Donuts’ donuts plus vanilla glaze plus pumpkin spice glaze plus coffee streusel, all set into a Little Baby’s Coffee Ice Cream with additional spicings.
Yeah, I’d leave work early, too, if I were you.
Federal Friday on Franklin Avenue [Official]
We announced the first one, we sipped one of each at the second one, and now that we’ve heard that Little Baby’s Ice Cream and Elixr Coffee are teaming up for a third and final Affogato Day for 2013, we’re strongly temped to do it again. Despite the terrible caffeine shakes, it would be difficult for anybody to choose between the two delicious options. Foobooz got the inside scoop (see what we did there?) after the pairings were decided upon last night.
Option one will be a non-dairy Speculoos ice cream with Elixr House Espresso Blend, and the second will be Rose Pistachio ice cream with the same Single Origin Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Espresso that they paired with Lime and Toasted Coconut last time around.
So make your plans now for this Saturday, the 21st, 7am until 8pm, at Elixr: 207 South Sydenham Street.
