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.

It's true, if you buy a waffle cone, they'll put a malted milk ball down at the bottom, to keep the ice cream from melting through onto your hand. And they won't charge you any extra for this service! It's just included in the price of the cone. If you think this is awesome, don't even get me started on... More

Although I've visited Lawrence many times, I only recently discovered Sylas & Maddy's. Their ice cream is absolutely perfect! This is a family-run enterprise on Lawrence's main street, and buying ice cream there, instead of one of the big franchises, is a pleasure in itself. And if you are there at the right time, you'll get to see them making... More

This is one of our favorite haunts. We always forgo dessert at downtown restaurants in favor of Sylas & Maddy's ice cream Whatever a person's taste, there is an ice cream or sherbet to satisfy the sweet tooth. Their home-made frozen concoctions are available in home-made waffle cones. And they rotate their flavors. Best of all they occasionally have Butter... More

This hometown business begins with the best home-made ice cream base and produces an ever changing kaleidoscope of flavors using all the very best ingredients. My favorites include cinnamon, anything with peanut butter, coffee, and the basic sweet cream, as well as any fresh seasonal fruit. The chocolates have real deep chocolate taste as well. If you can't decide, the... More

This place is darn near perfect when it comes to great homemade ice cream. They had many unique flavors to choose from and many options to get them, including in a waffle cone made in house! I went for the 5 flavor sampler and it was nice to get to try a little bit of so many flavors but not... More
