Great chocolate almond ice cream!!!

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!).

Best custard in town; and now we can get it at Bill Gray's and not just at an Abbott's store. We often go there after dinner

They have the best Chocolate almond ever! My husband and I both have been going there since we were young. I can remember my dad and I would buy different flavors and we would share. (I think he was just trying to keep it from melting all over me!)

Moved from Rochester and one of the major things I miss is Abbott's, especially the original on Lake Ave. All favors are great, but my favorite chocolate almond is the best! Their hot fudge sauce is delicious! Miss you Abbott's.

You know this is a popular spot because there's always a line at the window. All their flavors are rich and creamy, and the service is always prompt and pleasant. A cool treat on a hot day -- the perfect ending!
