PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Ice cream parlor Scoop DeVille has moved from one center city location to another.

Spencer Philips, the owner (top photo), says they have moved from the Rittenhouse Square neighborhood to 1315 Walnut Street, where they are focusing on so-called “custom blends.”

“You start with your main flavor of ice cream, you add your ingredients — mix-ins, toppings, things like that.  We blend it all together in our fancy machine and it comes out as a custom creation of soft-serve ice cream or frozen yogurt,” he tells What’s Cooking.

“Our farmer is named John King,” says Michelle Shannon (right), with the Center City District.  “They have everything from fresh vegetables in season, they have baked goods, and they also occasionally have flowers and plants.”

And brand-new in Old City is Sto’s, at 236 Market Street.

“We’re gonna go with the pub-grub food,” says owner Mike Stosic (below).  “Burgers, fries, we have our little baked hoagie thing, and we’ll have little scrapple sticks for the tourists that come by so they can try our scrapple and our little Philly cheese ball things we’re making and, you know, a lot of little just quirky items.”
