J.P. Licks

311 Harvard Street, Brookline, MA - (617) 738-8252
J.P. stands for Jamaica Plain, where the first J.P. Licks shop opened back in 1981. Since that time, the store has expanded to include 7 Boston locations, all of which serve up the same high-quality, homemade ice cream and hot fudge. If you're not in the mood for a heavy dose of cream and sugar (either in your ice cream or house-roasted coffee), J.P. Licks also offers a line of both hard and soft frozen yogurts.

An insanely large sundae that was immensely enjoyable to eat, but one whose sheer volume defeated me.

Like the Sterns' theory says, if there is an animal on the roof, good food is probably inside.  Indeed.
