We are from New England, the home of great ice cream. Out here, it is mostly frozen custard - good, but not what we had back East. This is on a par with local ice cream shops back home.

Considered the best ice cream in Lawrence, there is a flavor for everyone. Wonderful alone or you can create a special combination with toppings and additions. Ice cream is so good I've not gotten to try a shake yet. You won't regret it.

Sylas and Maddies is the best ice cream around. They churn their creamy delights to perfection and have the most creative flavors! It's a wonderful special treat and great on a budget. The scoops are huge!! Lawrence is so lucky to have such an amazing ice cream shop!!

Adore. They homemake all their ice creams. You can't go wrong, but the chocolate thunder is to die for. Chocolate and crunchies and cookie dough! Or the peanut butter freak! Or the cotton candy! I promise you personally that it's all amazing. Just walk in and smell it! You won't walk away unsatisfied.

The best ice cream I have ever had. I don't know what else to write. Try the waffle cones. I can't say much more.

Perfect homemade ice cream, it's like Ben & Jerry's on steroids. First thing that hits you as you come in is the amazing smell of freshly made waffle cones, and they are good! Good thing there's always a line so you have time to figure out what you want. Try the banana pudding, it's a MUST. And all their chocolate... More

This ice cream is worth the wait and as the weather cools the ice cream is just as good and the lines disappear. They make there waffle cones and ice cream fresh everyday.

It was good, but not over the top. Line went out the door on hot summer evening, but this might be expected with awesome location on Mass Street and in season. I liked it as independent ice cream store. I could see the waffle maker where they made their own waffle cones. I ordered peanut butter cup and cotton candy.... More
