Bon Bon Artisan Gelato

My good friend Natalie was in town this past weekend. We spent most of our time in Washington D.C. because Natalie is a history buff and had NEVER been there! But Monday after our train ride home, we ventured down to Old City in the 95 degree humidity and stood in lines to see some historical stuff Benjamin Franklin touched. We tried to hit National Mechanics for lunch, but unfortunately they're closed on Mondays. Instead we settled for a slice of pizza and some of the best gelato I've had in the city.
We arrived at Bon Bon Artisan Gelato and were greeted by a friendly and extremely attractive man.

Bon Bon Artisan Gelato offers a variety of traditional flavors as well as some modern twists.

I was having trouble deciding what to order, so I asked the cutie behind the counter which was his favorite. He suggested the Stracciatella, sweet cream with chocolate swirled throughout.

Natalie went with the chocolate flavor and enjoyed it thoroughly. We took out tiny cups filled with luscious gelato outside and sat under a conveinently supplied umbrella to gaurd against the sun.

If you're down by Penn's landing or doing touristy things with visiting friends, stop by Bon Bon Artisan Gelato and take a sweet break from the heat.

    I've never been there, but I go to Capo Giro everytime I can (13th and Sansom)-

    Sometimes I just go online to look at their flavors. It is def the best gelato I've ever had! But I'll be sure to try this place out - cute man, I'm there!
