“Local ice cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I LOVE JP Licks ice cream, no matter the location. On my last visit at the one on Charles Street I was roped in by their image of a reeses peanut butter sundae ... it did not disappoint. Service is consistently friendly.

“Empty and I understand why”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

I ducked into JP Licks for a quick breakfast and was thrilled to see oatmeal on the menu board. Too bad JPL doesn't actually serve oatmeal. What it substitutes is hot (not boiling) water at the bottom of a cup over which is poured regular Quaker Oats (the kind you cook on the stove--not instant) and handed to you with the instructions "let that sit a minute." This mess could have sat for an hour and it would not have become oatmeal.

Maybe this place is good for ice cream, but after this experience I'd be worried about how, exactly, it's made.

BTW, this is the first and only "terrible" ranking I have given in ten years of reviewing on Trip Advisor.

“Awesome Ice-Cream”

JP Licks is a Boston must for ice-cream! The staple favors are spectacular, and their seasonal offerings are always delicious. I am a regular customer!

“Best Ice cream in Boston.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

Forget about the NY time's recommendations for Toscannini's. JP licks is much better and at least the store is clean.
