On a hot summer night this is the go to place. Great energy, lines move fast, and great ice-cream. It's the only real ice-cream place left in the area and although pricey, worth the cream.

My daughter has been living in Boston for 18 years. Every time I go to visit her and her family a visit to J P Licks is essential. Sometimes there are huge lines, but it's always worth the wait. Yummy, Yummy!!
