I’ll be back! Fun flavors and combinations. Raspberry chocolate was amazing but I’m dreaming about when I can come back and get the Bear Claw flavor (it has chocolate covered cashews!)

If you addicted to ice cream -- and who isn't? -- you probably have tasted such conventional flavors as butter pecan, chocolate chip, vanilla, chocolate and strawberry. But have you tasted rainbow sherbet, tangerine sorbet, non-dairy coffee almond fudge, key lime, egg nog, coconut pineapple...and coconut almond fudge? All, and much more, are available at Abel's Ice Cream at 1886 Stickney Point Road in Sarasota, Florida, in Southbridge Plaza, west of the Tamiami Trail. Open from noon to 9:30 Sunday through Thursday and noon to 10 on Friday and Saturday, Abel's offers over 40 flavors of premium, Florida-made award-winning ice cream and dairy-free sorbets. Other flavors include banana, chocolate fudge brownie, butterscotch, carrot cake, toasted coconut, creamy praline, raspberry truffle, cookies and cream, cookie dough, spumoni, black cherry and maple walnut. As you might expect, there are several ice cream parlors in the Sarasota area and each has its own identity. Abel's is no exception.More

When we are in Siesta Key we visit Abel's...often! We love their ice cream and they have so many flavors to choose from. The servers are friendly too! We join their ice cream club and always manage to max it out. We love the chocolate...raspberry truffle and the captain's chocolate.More

Best ice cream! Lots of flavors and friendly service! Be sure to get a punch card as you will come back even if you don’t live here full time. Not our case, our ice cream favorite place.

We happened to be in the shopping center across the street and saw Abel’s. Crossed over and were surprised by the selection. We only had a kiddie cup each which was overloaded. Tasted bunches of others so we will definitely be back. Elizabeth was working...that day and we can’t say enough about her, Friendly, upbeat, pleasant. Happy gal!More

I accidentally found this amazing ice cream parlor when we were visiting the beach. The owner is so kind. We really enjoyed our ice cream. My favorite was the kahlua and the coffee. I can’t wait to come back again.
