Here's something to add to your Summer bucket list: Eat watermelon. Or, our Fresh Watermelon Sherbet. One watermelon goes into each tub of sherbet to make it full of juicy flavor. In stores through August.

Chocolate Hazelnut is back. It's been a while, we know. While you were waiting we've been scouring the globe to find the best hazelnut paste that we could add to our original chocolate base. We found it in Belgium, and now it's in JP and your ice cream! This month don't forget to try the best Chocolate Hazelnut treat you've ever had :)

Sometimes your ice cream will freeze to the point of being rock solid. You can get around that with some precise grid cuts made by a sharp, warm knife.

Extremely slow lines, amateur people running the show. And seems they show pride in it... If you drive the people crazy till you serve them icecream... Not matter how good the icecream is... It does't matter.....
Response from the owner - 2 weeks ago
Hi Ashutosh, I'm sorry to hear about the slow service. We are in the process of hiring and training staff for the busy summer months, and hope to be running at full speed within the next couple of weeks. I will pass your review along to the manager of the JP store so we can discuss how we can decrease the wait time. We thank you for bringing this to our attention. If there is anything else we can help you with please feel free to email us at comments@jplicks.com and we can assist you directly. Thanks! Julie J.P. Licks

This place is awesome! Not only is the ice cream (including gluten free and even vegan options if you're into it) some of the best out there, the decor in this location always makes me smile. Oh, and the staff here must honestly be some of the nicest people in all of Boston. I'm sure their other locations are fine and all, but this place will remain one of my favorite stops in the area.

BEST ICE CREAM EVER!! I took my sister, who is a pastry chef, and when she went home, she called and yelled at me for taking her because she knew that ice cream was never going to be the same again. They are completely kosher and everything is made in house! I love it. I also love their coffee. I buy all my beans from them because they roast them in house as well. AMAZING!

One thought. They make affogato. For those who might not know... that's a shot of espresso over a scoop of vanilla ice cream. SUCH a great treat for adults if you're going to take kids to get ice cream. I was pleasantly surprised. I'll say that they do have a wide assortment of unique flavors, so if you're just looking for good ice cream they're good for that too.

Best ice cream in Boston. They have amazing variety of soft serve frozen yoghurt and they are absolutely delicious. I went there every day I was in Boston last week. And they open early and close late so you can have it as breakfast, or dessert....

Probably the best ice cream in JP; love it. The customer service is also super friendly.

A summertime meeting spot in JP. Good icecream and lots of indoor/outdoor seating are big draws. Ice cream is too sweet for my tastes, but I'm sure not for others. One of my favorite spots to hang out in the late evening in the heat of the summer.
