In Rochester, New York then take a short drive to the original Abbott's Frozen Custard location on Lake Avenue. Superior custard bar none. Over looks Lake Ontario near the original Dentzel Carousel built in 1905 and now restored. Grab a custard and enjoy the carousel ride; fabulous!

I'm originally from the Rochester area and live in Florida. Whenever I visit, a stop at Abbott's is a must. On this last visit I had the butterscotch custard and it was amazing.

Chocolate almond is THE best. They have outside tables for seating and the price is right. We attended the Concert in the Park and Abbots is conveniently located across the street from the park.

I did not know the difference between ice cream and custard because they seemed the same to me. I quickly found out. Custard is softer than soft serve ice cream so it melts very, very fast. If you like to savor and enjoy your dessert, I suggest getting a bowl vs. a cone otherwise you're going to have a sticky... More

Go to any Abbotts and have a great ice cream/frozen custard experience. Their product is on the expensive side but worth it.

We learned about Abbot'S from a tour guide at a museum. It seems to be a place you have to go, in Rochester. It was good, but had a very long line.

Can't go wrong with an Abbott's at the lake! Establishment knows how to cater to the public! Well worth the wait.

It is a tradition that I go with my wife, and soon with my son to get a hot fudge sundae at this landmark location near the Charlotte pier. The ice cream here is the best I have ever had, not counting gelato, and being able to stroll along the beautiful nearby beach & pier or peaceful Beach Ave while... More
