Perfect homemade ice cream, it's like Ben & Jerry's on steroids. First thing that hits you as you come in is the amazing smell of freshly made waffle cones, and they are good! Good thing there's always a line so you have time to figure out what you want. Try the banana pudding, it's a MUST. And all their chocolate... More

This ice cream is worth the wait and as the weather cools the ice cream is just as good and the lines disappear. They make there waffle cones and ice cream fresh everyday.

It was good, but not over the top. Line went out the door on hot summer evening, but this might be expected with awesome location on Mass Street and in season. I liked it as independent ice cream store. I could see the waffle maker where they made their own waffle cones. I ordered peanut butter cup and cotton candy.... More

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!

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
