Best Ice Cream in Town

Best ice cream in town, hand's down. This is a great place to bring visitors for a scoop after having dinner on Mass. It can be CRAZY busy in the summer and on whatever night they have College Night (Tuesday maybe?). My favorite is Maddy's Mudslide in a waffle cone. They have fun specials on... read more

We were staying in a nearby campground and decided to go into town after company left. Downtown Sunday night in Lawrence is VERY busy! We just happened upon Sylas & Maddy's by walking up and down the street looking for a late night snack. Ice cream sounded VERY good, and boy, is that the place to go! So many choices!... More

I love their sweet cream, which is their basic vanilla. Its always busy and always great. There is seating inside, but its usually full.

I love this place they are very friendly. Some times they have a line out the door but it's worth the wait if you ask me! My favorite is peanut butter freak!

We have family in town so we're there a few times a year. This is a place the kids love so we normally work in a stop. I'm partial to their Butter Pecan but I will see what grabs me when I'm there. The did have a special flavor for KU's graduation weekend. that was thoughtful.

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 different flavors...

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
