J.P. Licks is a Boston-area chain of ice cream parlors. The secret surprise is that the the Jamaica Plain branch is a large, comfortable coffee shop that serves food: muffins, bagels, croissants with cheddar and egg fillings, all kinds of coffee drinks and fabulous Belgian waffles. All under the Va'ad.
Go for the Belgian waffles. They dress the waffles up with fruit and whippd cream, maple syrup or a scoop of their wonderful iced cream or frozen yoghurt. It is a wonderful lunch, or a light meal. Go any day, But a favorite on Sundays when a walk along Jamaica Pond or through the Arboretum can be followed by brunch. Equally appropriate destination for a light meal or snack for business colleagues, dates, adults and families with small children. Probably the best kosher place in Boston.
But back to the waffles. They are amazing. Crispy, hot, perfect. Visitors to Boston should make this one of the treats of their visit. http://www.jplicks.com/
