This was one of the first places I went to when moving to Lawrence.The best ice cream! So many great flavors, always a tough decision on which flavor to get. Single scoops are always double scoops. It's the best!

If you're in town you've gotta visit. Best ice cream ever, and free samples help you find just the right one.

I was really glad to find this place open at 9 pm on a Thursday in August. It was busy and all the seats were taken, when I first arrived. There were many flavors to choose from. I picked Triple Fudge. It was very creamy, with good chocolate flavor. I managed to get a seat in one of the old... More

We've never had a bad visit to Sylas and Maddy's. There are so many unique flavors to choose from, and each one is delicious. On our most recent visit, we had Maddy's Mud (I think that's the right name), Rock Chalk Jayhawk, Chocolate Chip, and a Lemon Custard Pie. It's fun to people watch when you're eating (and you might... More

I am a ice creamaholic. Sylas & Maddy's is my favorite. I try about every ice cream place wherever we travel (I haven't found anywhere that is better yet). All of their ice cream is made at the store and they make some amazing favors - my favorite is the sweet cream, butter pecan, and I can't remember the name... More

Really great ice cream with a lot of varieties. I usually get a double scoop of strawberry cheesecake or blueberry cheesecake in a waffle cone. It's always delicious and there's almost always a line out the door!

A variety of interesting flavors and local, homemade feel. A great alternative to cookie-cutter chains.

There are so many different options and variations or homemade ice cream as well as some of the best waffle... More
