We attended a Christmas show in Waltham and were happy to find someplace open afterwards for dessert. We passed by the pastries on display and had the ice cream. I found it grainy with flakes of ice, not creamy. My ice cream had the flavor of cinnamon but needed something more. A bit disappointing.

Long lines are the only drawback here. Excellent selection of yummy things to put a smile on the faces of both the young and the old.

Reliably excellent ice cream. Wide variety of flavors. Sometimes on weekends a trio of musicians play Renaissance music in the back room: recorders of various sizes, auto-harp, cello-like stringed instrument, plus some singing. Unique and a plus.

We visit Lizzy's often and enjoy it immensely! The chocolate orgy and mocha lace are our favorites. I also keep a quart of their ginger ice cream on hand at home. It's great!

I've been here twice and really enjoyed the unique flavors such as ginger, banana, cinnamon, and coconut. the line can be long on a weekend night, but well-worth the wait.

Prices are on the steep side, portions are on the small side and flavors are good but not much more than that. I found the ginger pieces in Ginger to be too large and therefore not evenly distributed enough for consistent flavor. Coconut lacked richness and was a bit grainy--more like sorbet than ice cream. If I were on Moody... More

I heard many people in the area talk about how great Lizzy's was. I stopped by for a cone and my reaction was just meh. While there were a lot of different and interesting flavor combinations, the actual product left a lot to be desired. I had the Columbian Fudge Avalanche and found the ice cream to have poor texture... More
