My Life in Boston

mostly about food, but also about sneakers, make-up…and now, my kid

J.P. Licks in Jamaica Plain Neighborhood of Boston, MA

I stray from J.P. Licks from time to time, but I always return. They have super fun flavors and the ice cream itself is rich, thick and creamy. After experiencing ice-y ice cream the other week, I now appreciate J.P Licks even more.

Homemade ice cream and coffee cafe with 13 locations in and around Boston

Here are July flavors of the month…

Nano Black Soft Serve
It’s vanilla and activated charcoal soft serve. I like that it’s black and super emo/anti-mermaid, but in terms of flavor, I didn’t really get that hit of vanilla. Or maybe the color was throwing me off? I wonder tho what it could’ve tasted like if they had given it a black sesame flavor instead. Still, it’s fun, but you better wipe your mouth when you’re done eating it.

Fruity Pebbles Cereal Milk
Ummm…please make this a forever flavor! I haven’t had Fruity Pebbles cereal since I was a kid so this definitely brought back happy memories. I absolutely loved it. So, question is; would I rather have this or Milkbar’s famed cereal milk soft serve ice cream? I’m gonna have to go with Fruity Pebbles Cereal Milk. (Note: you can also get it in frappe form).

Fiore’s Bakery in Jamaica Plain Neighborhood of Boston, MA

Today’s all-day breakfast special, heuvos rancheros plate.

by LILLIAN LEE

The Super American made with eggs, cheddar, turkey, bacon, spinach, avocado, and spicy veganaise. They need to bottle that sauce up because it was so delicious.

This local, neighborhood bakery has become our Sunday go-to spot.

They’ve got delicious food for vegans and non-vegans – sandwiches, soups, bagels, smoothies, and pastries. Also, the coffee is on point. (Note, if you’re staying to work, which is what we do, coffee refills are just $1)

Traditional American/Italian Bakery and Bistro Specializing in Vegan and Vegetarian Offerings

I’ve only had a few things from the menu, but they were all tasty:

Jamaica Pond Sandwich

chicken or eggplant with red peppers, cartelized onions, provolone, pesto and tomato spread) with a side of roasted potatoes and salad greens

This is a tasty sandwich but a challenge to eat because it’s stuffed with so much goodness and the bread is pretty hearty. Everything ended up squirting out and so I had to use a fork and knife.

Italian Combo Sandwich

ham, salami, tomato, provolone, lettuce, olive oil

This was very tasty. The bread was perfect and it was pressed which made it even better because it tasted pretty much like a grilled cheese but with italian meats!

Blueberry Pie

Ummm…best. pie. ever! I loved the crust and the fruit was candy-tastic. I like my fruit pies sweet – not tart. And, I like my fruit pies to not be a runny mess. This was everything I hoped for and then some.

Tiramisu…s

The original was light, fluffy and airy. I’m a sucker for tiramisu…

but the almond version had a beautiful crunch from the almond toppings to the almond crust on the bottom.


Everything is amazing and I can’t wait to try all the other sandwiches and baked goods they have. Seating is a little limiting and it may take a minute or more for your sandwich to be ready, but it’s worth it. Plus, free wifi!

(Note: If you order a sandwich and eat in, you’ll get the side of potatoes and salad. If you do a take-out, then you’ll miss out on that)
