Top Pet Friendly Places In Boston (hint, it's us!)

Where do you go when you're out and about with your dog? TimeOut Boston names J.P. Licks as one of the top 14 places to visit in Boston with your pup. Because we serve COW PAWS - dairy-free treats just for them! This dairy-free sorbet made with honey and peanut butter and topped with a kosher dog bone will have your furry friend paw-sitively wagging with joy.

Unfortunately, due to the state-wide health code, only service animals are allowed in the store but most of our stores have outdoor seating where pets are welcome and you can order cow paws for delivery too.

Searching for Kosher Food? Look no further!

J.P. Licks has been kosher for over two decades now. When founder/owner Vincent Petryk opened the doors of his stores in Coolidge Corner and Newton Centre, he decided the best way to serve his neighbors was to become kosher-certified. Jewish Boston recognizes us as one of the top 6 kosher restaurants in the area - plus we always have vegan options available if you are kosher AND vegan! Check out some additional delicious non-dessert optons in this Jewish Arts collection of restaurants.
