Great selection of quality ice cream made with quality ingredients. Flavor selection changes periodically. Always busy, but worth the wait.

I'm not really sure what there is to review here. It's ice cream, okay? Yes, it's good ice cream. Yes, there's a wide selection of flavors. Yes, the staff are courteous, efficient, and perky. Yes, kids are very welcome (hot tip: if you're running an ice cream shop, don't be nasty to kids). But in the end, it's an ice... More

Came here recently for dessert and ordered the oreo ice cream. It was very delicious. The ingredients they use here are among the best available. The ice cream was, dense, heavy and rich, though not too rich. They also have cookies/brownies here as well. They are also very good and are of high quality. The young kids behind the counter...

JP Licks is an ice cream and frozen yogurt place which is terrifically located on Harvard Street in the Coolidge Corner area. There is ample seating indoors but many choose to take their treats to a nearby bench or wandering into the many stores nearby (it is just a little ways from Brookline Booksmith which is amazing). You won't find... More

While visiting went with friends for an ice cream cone. The line was long, but it was worth the wait. I had a single scoop mint chocolate chip ice cream cone (after I was allowed to sample three mint variations). The portion was large, the waffle cone and ice cream both delicious. It was't your usual green food dye fare.... More
