    During the summer this place always has a line. Expect a wait. Winter months you should be in and out.

    They have a LOT of dairy-free options which is wonderful. I had the coffee lace and it was heavenly.

    Don't get something you can get everywhere, like vanilla or strawberry. These guys excel at weird blends and they are delicious. The ice cream, that is. Do not be afraid. DO IT!!

    The coffee oreo ice cream at J.P. Licks is perfect for your sweet tooth. If you're feeling extra bad, ask them to put hot fudge on top.

    What can you say that hasn't been said about J.P. Licks? Coffee is as good or better than City Feed and what you don't get is ATTITUDE. City Feed hipsters vs. J.P. Licks Angels. I'll take heaven!

    Scot Yount · September 6, 2013

    Check out the rich variety of fresh roasted coffee - came in for ice cream, and the aroma from the roaster was enticing enough to pick up a bag of fair trade Sumatra Mandheling.

    I once played a "punk" show in this building...damn, I'm old. I don't recall a big cow head hanging off the front back then. Didn't this shop first open on Newbury St. ? Oi! Oi! Oi! Gimme Chocolate!

    If you're looking for a dairy free option, definitely taste the coconut chocolate. Otherwise the oatmeal raisin fro-yo & oreo ice cream are big wins!
