In order to ensure the success of my future business, I first learned professional restaurant operations as a Wendyac2s Hamburger manager for the next 3 years. Finally, although a male, I gave birth to J.P. Licks Homemade Ice Cream as a 26 year old, in 1981, in my Jamaica Plain ( J.P. ) neighborhood of Boston. My business partner for the first several years of J.P. Licksac2 life, Michael Herbert, was also present at its birth.
Not that great! It depends who you get making youre ice cream. Ive been to a few and had some young school kids make some fraps and it turns out like a cup of milk. Stick with sundaes and scoops of ice creams.
I've been to the one in JP, Netwton Ctr as well as in Somervile loved the atmosphere and the service at each , the Maple Walnut Ice Cream was the best, we always go to JP Licks when we come back to visit.
I have to admit I was a Brighams Girl. Was sad to see it go but delighted when JP Licks came in. Their ice cream is by far the best home made I have tasted. Since moving out of state, whenever we come back we always go to JP Licks. The variety is outstanding
JP Licks is one of those Boston mainstays that serves some of the most delicious ice cream around. You can pick a wide variety of flavors and toppings, and the choices of cones range from your typical sugar cone to the chocolate-dipped waffle cone. Frankly, their stuff is so good it's damn decadent. But be careful: an addiction to JP Licks will add a few inches to your waistline, so visit this place sparingly.
In a town full of good ice cream, JP Lick's White Coffee will always be my own personal favorite. It's one of a handful of exquisite culinary experiences I will take to my grave. If you like coffee ice cream, I implore you to try this flavor, rumored to be the brain-child of Ben Franklin. Or try it in a frappe �with just a little chocolate syrup.� Heaven on Earth. Whatever your ice cream tastes, I'll bet you'll find something terribly yummy at this Jamaica Plain institution. Enjoy!
Great ice cream flavors...some you can't find anywhere else. Anyone craving cucumber ice cream?!?! There are a few locations, but the original in Jamaica Plain is the best in my opinion. Definitely a place you'll frequent once you try it.
Although they've moved their infamous plastic cow indoors and expanded their opperation, J.P. Licks remains a conerstone of the quirky Jamaica Plain community. Order coffee, pastry, or ice cream untill Midnight, then grab a comfy seat by the fire place and rub elbows with on of the most diverse and interesting crowds in Boston. Local artists are constantly on display, and the music is always interesting, never canned. J.P. Licks is the big ice cream shop with its heart in the right place.
i've been spending wednesday evenings at jp licks as a time killer. it's undergone a few changes and i can't decide if it's good or not. my plan is to sit with the best coffee in jamaica plain and listen to my ipod. but they always have the stereo playing loud. but surprisingly, it's always really good indie stuff - i can't decide if i should listen to my selection or theirs...
