We absolutely loved JP Licks ! The minute you walk in you will be hit with so many flavours (fragrance) that you will be lost to see what to order. We always end up doing a few rounds since one scoop is never enough.

The ice cream was good if you are a fan of hard ice cream that is on the softer side. Very expensive for ice cream. I would choose Ben and Jerry's over J.P. Licks.

Great ice cream, frappes and coffee. They now deliver in Wellesley through the grub hub app. And yes it works, a few taps on the screen and 15 minutes later an ice cold frappe was at the door. Delicious yet dangerous. Lol.
