The sign says Best Hot Chocolate in Cambridge 2012......well, that was then, I guess. We went in on a brisk Saturday afternoon and after waiting in line for a very long time, we paid $10.00 for a medium pumpkin yogurt and a large hot chocolate, which wasn't even started yet when we got to the register. After waiting even longer... More

One of the best ice creams I have ever eaten. Great various flavours, especially walnut, coconut etc. The price is decent. 3 scoops is the best option. Totally recommend!

The ice cream is delicious, the best in the square. Many flavors, often creative ones. It is on the pricey side, though.

The ice cream here is VERY good. If it's hot outside, and you don't want you ice cream to melt, think about somehwere else, as the seating is very cramped, and the linbe to order is jammed against the most of the seating area, making difficult to get in and outof a seat without bumping in to someone and spilling...

Our friends suggested this ice cream place in the Boston area, and it did not disappoint! We went in the evening on a somewhat chilly day, so the line was inside the door, but I imagine if it had been any warmer there would have been a very long line on the weekend. We thought it was well worth any... More

The ice cream was good and the place was very busy. A little on the pricey side for the waffle cone. Very good selection...talked with a repeat customer family...they recommended several flavors. Nice location, you can walk across the street to the Harvard campus or just people watch from window seating or a few streetside tables. We would visit again... More

Good value in a region of high prices. Take time to wander the area with a waffle cone. If you can agree on a flavor share the cone with your significant other!

Delicious ice cream and milkshakes. It is great to get an ice cream and walk around Harvard square. It is very popular but worth standing in the line

Although it is a chain and does not seem to get as much attention as Toscanini's, J.P Lick's has really good ice cream! Their known for their cookies and cream but I suggest getting the brownie brownie batter! It's just incredible!
