What can't you find at Reading Terminal Market?!? So many food vendors all in one spot. It can get crowded but there are many family friendly options here. My personal recommendation would be: Flying Monkey Bakery, Down Home Diner, Olde City Coffee, Metropolitan Bakery, Miller's Twist (Amish soft pretzels), 12th Street Cantina, Famous Fourth Street Cookies, The Original Turkey, Hershel's East Side Deli (Hot Rueben Sandwiches), Termini Brothers Bakery (Take the Canolli)

Homemade Ice Cream by The Berley Brothers. The scene at Franklin Fountain is something out of the history books. The 2 owners grew up in a family that ran an antiques shop. Their ice cream parlor is historic and authentic right down to the Ben Franklin bust and the belt run ceiling fans. This is original Philadelphia architecture and decor at its best. The staff is super friendly and the ice cream is amazing. Be sure to try the homemade chocolate sauce, caramel sauce to peanut butter sauce. You can even buy a jar to take home.

Old Time candy shop run by The Berley Borthers who also own Franklin Fountain just a few doors down. Lots of vintage style candies. They handmade chocolates, camels and buttercream in house. You can build your own box of chocolates or select one of their remade assortments. They have tons of non chocolate items too, There is a hot chocolate bar in the back. Do yourself a favor and get a Jefferson's Nightcap. The architectural and interior design of this historical Philly confectionery is top notch and super nostalgic.

This little Vietnamese Fresh bakery is the hidden gem of South Philadelphia. It doesn't look fancy at all but don't be fooled. They do killer iced Vietnamese coffee and excellent classic french baked goods. You won't see them in the display case but the do croissant breakfast sandwiches (Egg, bacon, cheese, sausage or any combination of those). They are the best croissants I have every had! Well worth the trip!
