Pumpkin Custard a Great Treat

I have eating their ice cream for years, bought a friend over from Europe and told her about this ice cream place. Before I went into raptures, she suggested that get a list of ingredients from the ice cream is made off. That did it, horrible, chemicals upon chemicals. Never went back for ice cream again, turns my stomach that... More

Many times I have been to Abbott's Frozen Custard. I am so blessed to live in Rochester New York as we have Abbott's places all around us. My favorite is chocolate almond.

Love Abbotts, especially their chocolate almond ice cream in a waffle cone! Prices are a little high ($6.50 for a sundae), but products are all good and always crowded in summertime. Has that old fashioned ice cream stand appeal. Picnic table usually nearby, lines move quickly.

Abbots frozen custard is not like ice cream, it is richer and creamier. ( possibly higher in fat) but very delicious a definite must try.

I love Abbotts from the Ice Cream Cakes to the cones. Every location that I have been to has been wonderful. I really enjoy the Pistachio Pineapple flavor, it is very refreshing.

Abbott's is an institution in Rochester for its unique brand of frozen custard. Located a stone's throw from Lake Ontario and the beach, Abbott's is simply the best and a must for any tourist visiting Rochester. They usually have 3-5 different flavors that change almost weekly. My personal favorite is the Pistachio Pineapple (no nuts or pineapple pieces). I also... More

Best ice cream, or frozen custard anywhere!! The chocolate almond is always delicious. There is always a special new flavor in addition to chocolate and vanilla. I love the vanilla. Sundaes, milkshakes, and typical ice cream items are also availabl. Do something different, try a turtle. Outside seating is available in most locations.

Love Abbott's! Enjoyed a chocolate almond dish of yummy, creamy yet nutty goodness! Our closest Abbott's is 1-1/2 hours away in Vero Beach. We were in town for a wedding and Abbott's was on the MUST HAVE list! It's a good thing we don't have one around the corner as I know I would be a frequent visitor (again!).
