A trip to Excelsior isn't complete without a stop at Adele's. It's not on the Main Street "Water", it's on Lake St., and faces Lake Minnetonka. Ice cream is all that is served, and you can have it in any possible ways. A great treat for all ages!

Happened on this place by accident but how fortunate! Great frozen custard fresh made with daily specialty flavors. Not to be missed.

Custard is like frozen yogurt or ice cream but way better. Check their website as they have special flavors offered every night of the week. You can order and pay for custard by the tub and pick up later. Drive thru can be slow.

I'm a big fan of frozen custard, and this is, hands down, the best I've had anywhere. It's been over 15 years since I first discovered Adele's custard, and I've sought for a place that rivals it all over the country - but to no avail. I always end up back to Adele's - especially on those days that Death... More

If you want to have the best frozen custard you have ever put in your mouth you MUST visit Adele's. They make small batch specials on different days of the week. If they are offering the Chocolate Raspberry Truffle custard don't miss it.

This is the real stuff and made on-site. First time here was 20 years ago and the quality is still there.

The variety of their ice cream and frozen custard offerings makes this a very popular local spot in Excelsior. Usually there are long Lines at the drive-up window, but you can get good service visiting their cozy inside space as well. I believe they serve food as well, but I've never had anything but their desert offerings, so I can't... More

This is a great little place that serves custard "concrete" and yogurt ice cream. Very refreshing on a hot day. Shakes as well as handmade cones were delicious. They have a nice patio area outside as well as drive through.
