This was truly excellent ice cream and they proudly displaced their Kosher certificate (their Hecsher). They also served many different coffees and other drinks.

You'll see a line any time of year, it's just good ice cream with innovative new flavors each time you go. They even have dairy-free options.

Best ice cream Evah! Delicious fresh ingredients. Friendly staff. Happy to let you taste a few flavors to you make up your mind! A few favorites are maple walnut, rum raisin, brownie brownie batter and coffee cookies and cream! Mint cookies and cream also really good. The fresh Mojito sorbet is yummy and refreshing and one of the special flavors for August. Also have frozen yogurt and dairy free.

I'm vegan, so my contentment with JP Licks relates to (a) their exceptionally strong coffee AND (b) their carrying 1-3 really good vegan ice creams each day.

None of us truly NEEDS either one, but if you're (a) a vegan OR (b) traveling with a REAL vegan, you 'NEED' to know that JP Licks caters to a group that may have a vegan.

Oh, and the WiFi: If you're meeting over coffee, the strong WiFi and the strong coffee are what you need when you're meeting over a thesis edit with an international postdoc. Yes!

For a European is really hard to mark US ice cream as great (I mean, we have Italy!), but JP Licks has a really wide variety of flavors and the texture of the ice cream is really good!
