“Richest, tastiest ice cream”
Reviewed August 9, 2012 via mobile

It's pricy but worth it. I usually get vanilla ice cream with hot fudge and it is sooooooo good. When I'm in Newton or Coolidge Corner in Brookline I don't go anywhere else. There's also a JP Licks at Legacy Place in Dedham.

“Great ice cream but a bit overpriced”
Reviewed March 14, 2012

It's great, creamy ice cream that comes in a huge variety of flavors, but unless you're looking for a specific flavor that only JP Licks carries, there are cheaper alternatives to get your ice cream fix.

“Great homemade flavors”
Reviewed February 22, 2012

JP Licks is a great ice cream place worth checking out. The ice cream is delicious--I recommend Oreo, and the people who work there are always pleasant.

“Yummy ice cream!”
Reviewed January 31, 2012

Not for the folks on a diet, JP Licks has great ice cream (and some good yogurt flavors too) and great waffle cones and toppings. A wonderful place to get a treat on a hot summer night.

“the BEST icecream around”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

no contest in Newton, this is the best I.C. Local guys, not a huge chain, worth the wait in line, for any flavor you like. I am prone to coffee, mocha concotions that include nuts, preferably almonds. So glad JP Licks outlasted Coldstone! They deserve to hold down the ice cream fort in Newton Centre.
