Best place of the kind

WOW, if you're looking for ice cream go somewhere else. This Custard is really something special. Very tasty and the price is good. You get the best for your money.

I love, love, love the frozen custard they serve. My favorite is the chocolate almond. It is so creamy, smooth and almost buttery. Addictive!

After dinner at Sweet Basil, a kiddie sized custard was the perfect finish to the evening. We sat in the outside chairs and enjoyed the peaceful street scene. Abbots had many enticing favors and friendly service.

This was my first visit to Abbott's. I chose the butterscotch flavor. Absolutely delicious, and didn't dissolve into a milky pool as regular ice cream tends to.

Delicious custards (tell the kids it's ice cream, they won't know the difference!) plus chocolate covered bananas. All at very reasonable prices!

Not Japanese as Trip advisor states unless you eat dessert before your dinner. Great frozen custard and lots of choices. A little pricey for this Ohioan but after looking at the real estate shop next door with homes 800k-1M+, I get it! Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.

The frozen custard here is better than the ice cream anywhere else in town. It's freshly made custard is much tastier than its prepackaged custard.

Great little frozen custard spot in Needham. Imported from Rochester NY - so glad they picked our town years ago. Butter-based frozen custard is a smooth and creamy as you could hope. Flavor choices are fairly basic, but never once been disappointed.
