Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Jack’s ice cream is so amazing, we now regularly skip dessert when we go to Cambridge restaurants and swing by Jack’s afterwards instead. Not even sure what else I can say, it’s the fact that there is always a long list of freshly prepared home made flavours that change on a daily basis. There is usually a good selection of vegan options as well. The flavour and quality of both the ice cream and the cones is just out of this world. Service is always friendly and welcoming. Yes, there’s always a big queue outside, but it does move quickly, and every time we’ve tried to use their queue jump online order option we actually manage to get to the front of the queue before we managed to complete the online order. If I could change anything at all, I’d give them a bigger venue with indoor and outdoor seating.

Not great icecream it was very icey rather then creamy. Flavours were bland, and didn't taste of much. Large queue but fast service. Friendly and chatty. Wouldn't go again as wasn't impressed with the ice cream.

Extremely slow service today 1/2/24. The guy took literally 5 min to put 2 scoops on the cone. There is no price list in the shop. Website indicates 4.5gbp/2 scoops while he automatically charged 6.3gbp. Disappointing.

Coconut was lovely but the treacle cake was horrible. It was large pieces of cake in ice cream. Didn’t go well at all. Only small selection of flavours

This spot was quite busy but it didn't take long at all for our order and Ice cream to be eaten. Quite a wide variety of choices and staff are very helpful.. An ideal spot for a cheeky dessert post dinner and get the cone with choc dip. Customer service was outstanding and our daughter loved the free cone she got,

Stay in Cambridge for 2 days and have 4 icecream here. Good service, you can always ask to try before you buy, can talk to the staff. This is how gelato should be, natural and velveted.

Read the hype about this place so was really excited to try it out. Unfortunately maybe due to said hype it didn't quite live up to reality. Don't get me wrong the gelato was very nice just not as special as I had imagined

Fabulous eclectic flavors of gelato. Arrive early as they can run out. The Mill Road Fig and the Coconut Ube were excellent. They have a great selection of vegan flavors.

Nice ice cream at a reasonable price! There were queues out the door when e arrived, but it didn't take long to get in, and the queues were there for a reason. As previously mentioned, this is good ice cream at a reasonable price in the city centre. I had the peanut butter and jam ice cream, and it was nice, I only got one scoop and to be honest it wasn't a generous one, but I can't complain it was a scoop of nice ice cream.

...ok, so the title is a little harsh. But...if you go in here expecting the best ice cream ever, you will be sorely disappointed...well, if you normally eat Cornettos you might be pleasantly surprised...but if you've been to a decent gelateria in Italy, then you will know that this ice cream is decidedly average. Sorry Jack, but it's true. Anyway, in reality, here is the lowdown on Jack's Gelato:- 1) Great selection of flavours including some super interesting/wacky ones 2) Long queue to get served, like 20 people ahead of us, but the queue does move fairly fast so be patient 3) Ice cream in a cone is not a big portion size 4) Price is fair versus a Mr Whippy down by the river, but not necessarily great value, but I guess you're in central Cambridge 5) The ice cream itself was good all round, and recommended, just not a patch on Rossellini in Marina di Carrara (iykyk)

A delicious ice cream, we had a chocolate & also a blackcurrant & cream cone, certainly made with the best of ingredients. We purchased it at the Cambridge Folk Festival & will be back again over the weekend! Would definitely recommend having more than one!

The best gelato I have ever tasted. Anywhere. Wonderful taste, perfect texture, and an interesting and exciting selection of flavours that (I believe) changes very regularly. On this - our first - visit, both my wife and I went for a single scoop of milk and chocolate cookies with raspberry. It was a truly outstanding flavour - beautifully balanced, sweet enough but not too sweet, and the perfect pick-me-up for mid-afternoon. I think I could quite happily have consumed it by the gallon tub. I simply cannot recommend this place highly enough: if there were a sixth star, I would e tempted to use it! We will be back as soon as possible to sample the many other flavours on offer.

A must try when visiting Cambridge in the summer or when you're in the area and you're craving for some good gelato. Tried the Sesame and white pistachios which was really nice. Would love to try other flavours next time.

Came here for dessert after a delicious dinner at Giggling Squid. We had already found an online booking system on thir website, so added our orders to the basket beforehand. Just as we approached Jack’s we submitted and paid for the order. This was an incredibly quick and hassle free option – there was a queue outside (is it any surprise?) but we were only waiting for less than 5 minutes. One USP of Jack’s is that they offer two small scoops – approximately the size and price of one normal scoop – which is really good when you want to try 2 different flavours but don’t want 2 large scoops. I had toasted pine nut and stroopwafel. Both were incredibly smooth and very full in flavour. The pine nut worked very well on its own and with the caramelly stroopwafel. This is gelato as it should be!

Well worth standing in queue. Lovely flavours. Vegan options as well. The chocolate cookie was amazing!
