J. P. Licks has good ice cream. The ice cream has great texture and the flavor is good, but not exceptional. The prices are a little high.
Best ice cream you'll find in all of Massachusetts – Excellent product (i.e. ice cream and even the coffee is great), quick and reliable service, wonderful staff, and a clean environment make this a great spot. I highly recommend it. It doesn't get any better than this.
Yummy ice cream!!! – Love their ice cream!
They can improve on their customer service and their employees and especially managers should stop being so lazy (ie; stop socializing with each other when you see a line of customers waiting to be served) Newbury street location has the worse customer service.
DELICIOUS ICE CREAM – J.P. Licks has the greatest ice cream around. The ambience is fun & the service is friendly. If you're craving some ice cream, this is the place to be!
Newbury Street's mecca of ice cream and frozen yogurt. – In Short
A cow mural, mosaic counter and giant "whirling teacup" combine to yield a whimsical environment. The assortment of ice cream flavors is awe-inspiring--French vanilla-hazelnut, white coffee, maple butter-walnut (there are always a half-dozen soft and nonfat yogurts available as well). Choose from a smorgasbord of toppings, including peppermint patty sprinkles, fresh fruit and Oreo cookies.
Don't bother. It's not what it once was. – Tonight we stopped in and got two cones. The cones were filled using a tiny scoop (about the size of a jumbo marble) which allowed the scooper to gradually build the cone to the precise weight for each size, 5 oz. for small, 8 oz. for medium and 11 oz for large. They actually weighed the cone on a scale before handing it to you. I was half done with my medium cone by the time we got to the end of the counter to pay for it. By the time we reached the end of the block I had reached a paper insert inside the cone (not the outside wrapper) which ended the experience for me. I will not be back. Someone in management has taken a good thing which did not need "fixing" and "fixed" it.
J.P. Licks Rocks!! – With 5 stores, what could be better! No matter where you are in the greater Boston area when you get a craving for ice cream, you can just shoot over to your nearest JP Licks and satisfy that craving! From Coffee Oreo ice cream to Oatmeal Cookie yogurt to their Sangria Sorbet...my taste buds are watering! So head on over to Newbury Street, Coolidge Corner, Jamaica Plain, Newton Centre, or West Roxbury for your favorite year-round treat!!!!
JP licks rocks! – Very tasty ice cream, lots of flavors, friendly staff. Good about letting try different flavors.
Very Good Ice Cream – I agree the J.P. licks has the best Ice cream. I haven't been to the one on Newbury St. But I have been to the one in Jamaica Plain.
Becoming a Boston Staple – J.P licks are popping up everywhere, and for a good reason. In my pre-lactose days, a daily trip for there amazing yogurt was essential. The every-changing flovors is a great perk, because you will always get something good. Now a days, my favorites have become lemon sorbet or the world best raspberry lime rickey. I must have if you have never tried it.
