    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.

    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.

    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:

    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.

  • Crystal K.
    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.

    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.

  • Ryan W.
    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

  • Kat H.
    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

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

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

  • Mike M.
    go with an appetite, and order a bunch of different flavors, you won't be disappointed. Ginger Molasses is very tasty

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

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

    Bring Cash! Get Peanut butter and Chocolate in a waffle cone. Sit on the bench outside to the left on a sunny day. Enjoy!

    Coconut ice cream! I always sample another flavor, but inevitably return to the coconut ice cream. Yum!

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

  • Julianne G.
    Don't stick to anything you could get anywhere else - although they're good, try the unique flavors!

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