Things Celtic recreates a vibrant version of Ireland and Scotland through an extensive collection of handmade and unique imports. A library of literature feeds historical, culinary, or cultural appetites, and traditional Irish and Scottish teas transport flavors from across the Atlantic. Silver jewelry bends and weaves in the shape of traditional Celtic knots, crosses, charms, and frames surround Ogham artwork, a rare and vertical form of writing from ancient Ireland. Things Celtic also helps friends passionately display their heritage through flags and traditional and custom-made kilts. The hotbed of Celtic pride also takes part in local events, such as music festivals, beer tastings, and seminars on James Joyce's pop-up books.

Modeled after the Italian "bella vita"-style café, Tèo romances the taste buds with scrumptious all-natural gelati and aromatic espressi in a tranquil setting. Caffeine-cravers will find that the menu packs an abbondanza of Tuscan java concoctions, from the straight-up cup of Palazzo ($3.25+) to the silky vanilla latte ($3.45) that soothes throats scratchy from swallowing pineapples. Tèo is best known, however, for its daily-changing gelato arsenal, which features flavors like organic peanut butter & Nutella, and salted caramel. Picky dessert connoisseurs will insist on indulging in a small cup ($3.40), then grabbing a three-flavor quart ($15.99) to enjoy the thick, creamy dolce treat-a from the comfort of their home or camel caravan. For more solid fare, fill groggy stomachs that just hit the colon's snooze button with one of Tèo's breakfast items, especially the homemade croissants ($2.50) filled with raspberries or chocolate. Tea lovers and British anachronistocrats, meanwhilst, can take a stately sip from the café's bounty of leaf-bud stews, with black, herbal, and green varieties available ($1.85+).

In 1984, Bob and Elizabeth Tumolo, a Philadelphia mother-son team, opened the first Rita’s Italian Ice, a modest shop that sold cups of ice water blended with chunks of fresh fruit. The smooth, flavor-packed recipe, which dates back to ancient Rome and Greece, was an immediate hit with Philadelphians and classics professors. By 1987, the Tumolos owned four shops, and by 2007, 500 locations served icy treats across the country.
Today, Rita’s Italian Ice continues blending fresh batches of Italian ice daily. Flavors ranging from tangy lemonade to sweet mango rotate based on the whims and cravings of the friendly staff. The expanded menu also serves thick frozen custard as well as the popular gelati, distinctive blends of Italian ice and creamy custard.
