    Possibly the best ice cream in Cambridge. Very creamy with fresh flavors. Mexican chocolate is a favorite.

    Burnt sugar and Mexican chocolate was my winning combination...

    Absolutely horrible service. Rushed us out really fast, wasn't busy or near closing. Didn't even get to tell them my size or toppings until after. Ice cream wasn't anything special

    Burnt sugar might taste odd at first bite, but it will grow on you. So delicious.

    The banana cinnamon tastes delicious. Reminds me of a cinnamon pina colada

    Try something you wouldn't easily find somewhere else! Loved the green tea flavor. Friendly service and perfectly sweet ice cream. Also: They take debit and credit cards.

    They take card now which is great. Great ice cream at a much better price than Toscaninis. Make sure you try a few flavors!

    Very fluffy, flavorful ice cream. I tried ginger, and I can't wait to try each of their unique flavors later. P.S. Many tips are saying it's cash only, but that doesn't seem to be the case anymore.

    Best cinnamon ice cream I've ever had.

    Best smelling ice cream place bar non! Whatever you do, don't go for something you can get at the supermarket!

    Nice home made ice cream

    Get an adventurous flavor, and then try to grab a seat on one of the benches out front. Eat your ice cream while enjoying the atmosphere of quaint Inman Square.

    Amazing khulfi ice cream if you're into Indian food. Also, ginger, burnt sugar, sassafras root, and green tea.

    Hey it's super delicious ice cream served by mildly grumpy people. Don't forget it's Cambridge after all.

    Behind a lavender façade, the shop’s exotic flavors include burnt sugar, licorice, honey-lavender, apple cider & cinnamon-spiced Mexican chocolate. More places to eat like a local:

    Best ice cream ever. Very fresh ingredients. Green tea, mango and azuki is the best :)

    Delicious homemade azuki bean ice cream cake by them!

    Try the Coffee Oreo And Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream - Generously packed in a huge waffle cone. This ice cream is really really good - it's so thick you kinda need to chew it.

    While Christina's has the staple ice cream flavors, its real draw are the specialty selections. Seasonal favorites like eggnog and fresh mint are unique and delicious. Honey Lavender is also a fave Read more

    The pistachio is terrible. The extract tastes like amaretto. The chocolate hazelnut is pretty good

    Peanut Butter Chip + Chocolate Mousse is the best combo you can get!! The closest ice cream to the real Italian Gelato in the US!!
