Loved my black raspberry ice cream. JP Licks never disappoints! Lots of interesting flavors to choose from.

Always delicious ice cream, but can get super slow when busy. Also a bit pricey, and very little space inside. It's nice to have this location on the square though, since you can meet up with friends and sit in the square having your desserts!

Had lunch at Boston Burger next door... walked over for a refreshing taste of cold and sweet. Tried their monthly flavor - Peach - fantastic. You can really taste the summer - not overly sweet, refreshing and definitely the taste of tree-ripe peaches comes through.

The ice cream tasted excellent. Service was great. The serving size is huge even for a small. The store is located in Davis Square where there was a lot of activity on a weekend.
