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.

Back in 2020, we began a collaboration with our Newbury Street neighbors, Johnny Cupcakes.

Vincent and Johnny collaborated on creating both the tee and the flavor - sweet treats as unique as their businesses! You can also order your limited edition tee online.
