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.

As a new Lawrence resident it took me a while to actually go to Sylas and Maddys, assuming it was all hype. Boy was I wrong! It is now a staple end my date night for my husband and I! There are so many different options and variations or homemade ice cream as well as some of the best waffle... More

Surprised I haven't reviewed this treat sooner because it's a "can't miss" in Lawrence. Delicious, tasty, wide variety of flavors. New additions throughout the year along with old favorites. I'm a native Vermonter who loves his Ben & Jerry's...but I'm not homesick for it in Lawrence. SM's holds its own. Enjoy!

What else do you say but go there and see for yourself. From the flavors to all the containers to enjoy it in you won’t be disappointed.

We stopped by Sylas and Maddy's after an afternoon shopping in Lawrence. I had a plentiful scoop of Rock Chalk Jayhawk, while the others had various other favors. All were fresh, creamy and original. The ambience of the shop was fun and comfortable. I would highly recommend this shop to others.

This ice cream is great but the shop is too warm. Ice cream melting too fast. My husband's cone was dripping as soon as he was handed it from the counter! I saw a patron's ice cream fall off the cone for the same reason. I did not like the cone because it was too thick. Not enough table space... More

Wonderful ice cream and so many flavors to choose from. They make their own waffle cones so you can have a sundae, cup or cone as you desire. A treat so be sure to stop by when you are downtown.
