Was happy could get black raspberry frozen yogurt in a waffle cone as well as ice cream! Was really all very good and was able to get a nice little table to watch passersby. Good service!

Our group had familiar flavors of ice cream -- pecan praline, caramel maple walnut, vanilla -- and boy, were they good! Flavors strong but not alarming, ice cream sweet and creamy -- a very happy time was had by all.

This was truly excellent ice cream and they proudly displaced their Kosher certificate (their Hecsher). They also served many different coffees and other drinks.

I'm vegan, so my contentment with JP Licks relates to (a) their exceptionally strong coffee AND (b) their carrying 1-3 really good vegan ice creams each day. None of us truly NEEDS either one, but if you're (a) a vegan OR (b) traveling with a...More

For a European is really hard to mark US ice cream as great (I mean, we have Italy!), but JP Licks has a really wide variety of flavors and the texture of the ice cream is really good!
