The lowdown

Blue Marble describes itself as an “Earth-friendly eatery,” which means, among other things, that the ice cream is made with organic milk from a collective of Pennsylvania dairy farmers. Whether adding locavorism, green building materials, and Fair Trade coffee to the mix makes the ice cream taste any better is a matter of heated debate, but this shop remains as reliable as ever when it comes to honing straightforward classics (chocolate, strawberry, cookies and cream) while keeping things fresh with a rotating menu of seasonal flavors like sweet corn or spiced-cider sorbet.
