I appreciate an authentic local homemade ice cream store. I assume it's local when a store says homemade, but I've come to find out that that isn't always the case. This is a great addition to a college town. Lots of kids, families and students. Lots of colorful ice cream flavors. They let you sample whatever. Aside from knowing what... More

Sylas and Maddy's is our local ice cream parlor. The seats are old church pews! You can get a huge waffle cone of ice cream, and they always have lots of flavors to chose from. This place usually has a line out the door on really nice evenings or when it gets hot outside.

We are from New England, the home of great ice cream. Out here, it is mostly frozen custard - good, but not what we had back East. This is on a par with local ice cream shops back home.

Considered the best ice cream in Lawrence, there is a flavor for everyone. Wonderful alone or you can create a special combination with toppings and additions. Ice cream is so good I've not gotten to try a shake yet. You won't regret it.

Adore. They homemake all their ice creams. You can't go wrong, but the chocolate thunder is to die for. Chocolate and crunchies and cookie dough! Or the peanut butter freak! Or the cotton candy! I promise you personally that it's all amazing. Just walk in and smell it! You won't walk away unsatisfied.

The best ice cream I have ever had. I don't know what else to write. Try the waffle cones. I can't say much more.

Perfect homemade ice cream, it's like Ben & Jerry's on steroids. First thing that hits you as you come in is the amazing smell of freshly made waffle cones, and they are good! Good thing there's always a line so you have time to figure out what you want. Try the banana pudding, it's a MUST. And all their chocolate... More
