Hits the spot for Ice cream craving

The best Homemade ice cream in Lawrence.Many flavors to choose from. Waited in line to get in but it went pretty quickly. There aren't many places to sit, it's a small store but you go for the ice cream not the ambiance. Unfortunately I was too full from dinner to have a big cone, but I had two... read more

Just one lick and you will be hooked on Sylas & Maddy's Ice Cream! Their ice cream takes me back to my childhood in a small town where we had a creamery and local ice cream shop. It was such a treat to go get ice cream then! It is a wonderful treat now to go down to Mass Street... More

This is the first time we go to this place and we will go again. I recommend it because there is a flavor for every one and you can try them. The waffles are also home made and are really good.

As a long time visitor to the wonderful city of Lawrence, Kansas I don't know how I have missed this place! As you walk in the door the aroma of freshly made waffle cones fills the shop. You have to have your ice cream in the waffle cone - so much better than any other ice cream store has to... More

So many delicious flavors. If you want a taste of something unique, it will definitely be offered here! So so good. Get it in a waffle cone and you'll be treated to sweet chocolate whopper at the bottom. It's also a lot of fun to enjoy an ice cream cone while walking down Mass.

A very good old time ice cream shop serving really good ice cream of many different and orginal flavors. The serving sizes are generous and reasonably priced. A great late night stop after a BBall game.
