“Great ice cream, sky high prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2012

Taking a family of four for an ice cream cone should not cost $20, but it does at JP Licks. And the portions are modest at best. The flavors are good and there are many of them. They have a huge selection of frozen yogurts, hard and soft. The hot fudge is amazing. And they have lots of other appealing toppings. In Brookline, there is a nice sitting area. I just wish a scoop with one topping didn't cost $5!

“Fantastic Frozen Yogyrt”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2012

For a guilt-free treat, go to J.P. Licks. Best frozen yogurt ever! Great variety of flavors in both hard and soft! Open late (till 11 or 12).

“Delicious icecream”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2011

For those who don't know (b/c I didn't until I lived in MA) J.P Licks is specific to MA. It is named after Jamaica Plain- location where it was started. And it is just wonderful. There is wide range of flavors and everything is just wonderful. Even the tart frozen yogurt - Yo Tengo (which is my favorite) is wonderful and rivals that of pink berry, and other tart frozen yogurt chains.

“Brookline Must Place to Visit - Really really good ice cream”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2009

We were passing thru town and ate dinner in Brookline. Dinner was fine but nothing to write about here. On the way back to the car, we decided to stop by and split and ice cream. Well we decided on frozen yogurt, and choose their almond coffee flavor. All I can say is that it was fantastic. It honestly made the whole experience in Brookline something to remember. The nuts were so fresh & crunchy, it seemed like they made it that day (maybe they did). Highly recommended to anyone who remotely likes frozen deserts.
