We stopped by for a cone after a great sandwich at Wheatfied's which was very close by. The reviews on Trip Advisor looked great, but we were disappointed. Ice cream, while home made, was grainy and not very flavorful-- the waffle cones were just OK also. Great service, but will probably not stop again.

I make a trip to this place every week. Can't stay away. Snickers is wonderful. Delicious, delicious.

There wasn't an option to review the Olathe, KS location on 119th & Strangline next to the Super Target, but it is a must visit when you're near Olathe in Kansas City or Lawrence. They truly make the ice cream fresh each day as well as the waffle cones that or beyond compare. We do not miss an opportunity to... More

OMG this place the the BEST! We love Sylas and Maddy's!! Everytime we go to Lawrence it is #1 on the list. They make everything in house, the cones, the cream, everything! They are always friendly and let you taste whatever you want. My favorite is definitely Kansas Twister followed by Da Bomb, Gold Dust, and Peanut Butter Freak. You... More

Walking into Sylas and Maddie's alone is fantastic - the smell of baking waffle cones might be the best ever! The ice cream is so good and even better, homemade. They're also very generous with the scoops! A single is really two scoops! The shop is lovely and there are benches along the street to enjoy your treat outside.

Stopped in this restaurant walking down Massachusetts St. on my way back to my hotel, and wow, am I glad I did! So many delicious and fun flavors to choose from, and you can view them all right through the glass! Friendly, prompt service with a smile! I settled on a regular single serving of "Kansas Twister" in a waffle... More

Really love this place--they are friendly and don't mind letting you try every flavor you can't decide between until you make up your mind. Go for the 5-scoop serving--they are little scoops but you don't have to decide between your favorites. Then walk Mass St. and burn some calories!

Not disappointed. Amazingly good toasted coconut ice cream. Will definitely go back. There's so many flavors still to try.

...it moves very quickly and is absolutely worth waiting in for some of the best ice cream I have ever eaten. There's not a lot of room inside for seating, but take your ice cream outside and stroll Mass Street. We found plenty of places to sit along the sidewalk.

Couldn't leave Lawrence without stopping at the best Ice Cream shop on Mass St. Enjoyed a creamy cinnamon ice cream.
