We had great homemade ice cream and cones. You could tell the waffle cones were homemade and not just machine made. They had a great selection of ice cream flavors, as well. The scoops were very generous. It's worth the wait in line.

Last year I would have given them five stars, but the flavors of ice cream taste differently the last visit, not sure why? It is almost like they are cutting corners on ingredients, or using less or different ingredients . We were throughly disappointed with our last visit. Maybe they changed their way of making the ice cream or are... More

I ordered a waffle cone with two scoops...Cappuccino Chip and Grasshopper (mint, chips, and oreos). Fantastic!! It was hard to choose which flavors to get, there were so many that looked great, and some I had never seen before. The entire family loved this place!

Everything is homemade and yummy! They always have new flavors to try too. I love their milkshakes and dreamsicles. The watermelon sherbet makes an amazing dreamsicle. The store smelled incredible because they were making waffle cones. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

This ice cream shop has a flavor for everyone and the long line out of the front door should be the strongest indicator that it is well worth the wait.

On Tuesday nights Sylas and Maddys offers buy one get one free ice cream deals for KU students with their student ID. It is a great place to go with your friends and get great ice cream. There are so many different flavors, there's bound to be something everyone will enjoy.

Nothing special. Just ice cream. For the price, a container of Bryers or Blue Bell ice cream would be a better buy. I'd rather drive 90 miles and get ice cream from Call Hall dairy bar on KSU's campus. Now that is homemade ice cream.

First you grab some of your favorite people, toddlers to grandparents. Stand in line for some truly great ice cream. You can choose from the many, many flavors and colors, and a bunch of toppings. Eat at one of the little tables, or drift outside to enjoy street life in the heart of bustling downtown Lawrence. You'll be glad you... More

We make it a point to stop at Sylas and Maddy's whenever we're in Lawrence, KS. And it's not just because our son is named Silas. :) They have the best ice cream and most unique flavors. You can't go wrong!
