There's a reason Obama stopped here, it's famous water ice. The pineapple flavor is especially tasty.

When is the first day of summer? When John's Water Ice opens! Pineapple is my fave and look out for weekly specials like piña colada.

Melt in your mouth! – I love the freshness of the water ice! I hear they hand squeeze the lemons, no wonder it's so refreshing! My summer would be nothing without John's Water Ice!

"Best pineapple in the city!" – That's what one customer told me as, visiting for the first time, I considered which of John's 5 water ice flavors to get. There are 4 regular flavors - cherry, lemon, chocolate and pineapple, and one or two special flavors. Once that was banana. He was right about the pineapple - creamy, refreshing, and not at all the sickly sweet flavor I expected. My friend's cherry was very sweet and syrupy-tasting - some people like this, I guess. Banana was a nice mild creation with a few actual banana chunks in it. You can also get gelatis (water ice layered with soft serve) and soft pretzels. No seats at this walk-up...you stand on the street as you down your delicious cool concotion and get in in some prime people-watching. Very generous portions, too.

absolutely wonderful – You can find great water ice at John's if you can find it. Despite being tucked away, its several blocks south of South St., the friendly service and great quality water ice is definitely worth it. It's not too sweet and the portions are enough to sastisfy people of any age.
