One of the best ice creams I've ever had. Reasonable prices too! The salted caramel chip was amazing and my husband enjoyed his ice cream too. He had the one with cashews.

Tried to go earlier in the day and it was just too busy. I talked the family in going back as I heard such good things. SO glad we did. The staff was great and ice cream was better. We tried the yellow brick road, kahlua chocolate and peanut butter fudge waffle cones. So yummy on a 96 degree sticky... More

According to TripAdvisor, this is the #1 Ice Cream venue in Portsmouth - so we had to try it. After having dinner at another local venue, we walked down to the river on Ceres Street for an ice cream. The place was packed inside and out but, service was spectacular moving people along well. The ice cream is well crafted... More

Tasty selections, from the chocolate dipped waffle cone to dozens of different flavors in this sweet shop. Grab your favorite ice cream creation at affordable prices and stroll the street of one of the East Coast's most historic and charming cities.

I was passing through Portsmouth on my way home from Maine and stopped for a bite to eat. My daughter wanted ice cream so we asked around and were directed to Annabelle's. The line was out the door but moved quickly. The staff was super friendly and the ice cream fresh and creamy. It was the perfect end to the... More

One of the best home made ice creams I have ever had, creamy and rich…..coupled with a few of the brightest, nicest and most talented wait staff I've seen in a small place….this is an absolute must for a snack, desert..or just an ice cream for your sweet tooth with many flavors…you can't resist this ice cream.

Thank 724Lee
