    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

    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.

    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: tandl.me/12ufz7c

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    Best ice cream in town, and the spice market they own next door has a huge variety of specialty items. -Tania Peterson, Top Chef Just Desserts

    Christina's has some of the more adventurous flavors along with the traditional. Sometimes you'll find lavender or mustard, for example. Their chocolate styles are rich and delish.

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

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

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

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

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

    Most fantastic flavor: Lime-Jalapeño-Tequila sorbet. Like a spicy frozen margarita.

    Even Tosci's and JP Licks don't have some of the flavors you'll find at Christina's. Try the adzuki bean!

    My favorite is the Adzuki Red Bean! 🍦

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

    The flavors are interesting but the ice cream is too icey and ultimately not that flavorful. Opt for Toscanini's instead.

    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
