Great treats and even better service

We stopped in for a quick dessert. We were promptly greeted upon entering. They were fairly busy (a good sign) but still took the time to offer us samples. We tried a couple and then dove in. This is good stuff! I now know why this is the #1 Ice Cream shop in town. We will return and I... read more

A nice local ice cream shop that offers a wide variety of flavors and ice cream-creations. So flavorful and creamy, I had to remind myself that all of it was homemade. Reasonably priced for a once-in-a-while treat. They have a warm and cheerful service team, who is more than willing to point you in the right direction in trying a... More

We were looking for a little dessert treat after dinner in Lawrence. Found this ice cream place and thought it would be great as we love home made ice cream. The flavors sounded great, but they had very little taste. It was disappointing considering the price and the calories. Even the waffle cone was relatively bland.

Sylas and Maddy's has friendly staff and excellent ice cream. The malted milk ball at the end of the waffle cone is the perfect touch to end the treat too.

Great Malt. I got the some mixed thing with cookies, brownies and it was great. Very hot day and the ice cream was a good cool off. I sampled a few other items to try out. Service was a little slow for no line but no big deal. I would of gave 5 stars but the malt was a little... More

Every trip to Lawrence is not complete without stopping in here for ice cream. They have unique flavors like Rock Chalk Jayhawk, KS Twister, and my favorite Queen of Hearts (vanilla ice cream w/raspberry filled chocolate hearts). So amazing. Think I may just have to jump in the car and drive to Lawrence now for a scoop.

Great ice cream and lots of choices of flavors. Loved the key lime pie flavor. So many choices that you have a hard time deciding which one to pick. And the single scoop is a plentiful portion.
