The pistachio ice cream is a must have ! The quality of the ice cream is not on par with luxury brands; however, it is a place that I visit quite often especially when I need to relax for a bit.

Loved the ice creams -- big variety of flavours and choice of sizes from big to gigantic. Plenty of beverages too. Tends to get crowded at times but service is brisk, friendly and efficient and no-one stays long after finishing his or her self-indulgent, slightly wicked treat, so you soon get a seat and a tiny table.

I am glad I have not disciovered JP Licks before this because I would weigh about 400 pounds. Their stuff is excellent. This location is modest in size and selection compared with the store in Jamaica Plain, so I wouldn;t make a huge special trip, but it's certainly worth a jaunt if you're in the general Davis area.

We loved JP Licks and came twice during our week in Boston. I loved the funky flavors like PB Oreo and their Strawberry is fresh and creamy--tastes as good as homemade! Lines go fast and its affordable for dessert.

Went to this place for desert and the girl who served us was brilliant . Let us try lots of different Ice creams before we picked which one we wanted . The ice cream and hot choc is the best I have ever tasted . I would highly recommend a visit to this gem.

i don't know why people are crazy for JP Licks. their coffee is bad, and their ice cream is just average. The one in Davis Square has a nice location though. There's public seating in front of it so you could use those seats if the place is full. It's actually pretty small and full most of the time.

Yummy ice cream. We walk here often. It is located in the middle of Davis Square. Often there is a line out the door...... deservedly so! Nothing like getting an ice cream cone and sitting out in the square and listening to a street musician in the summer. Ahhhh.
