Friends of ours had urged us to visit Annabelle's . They told me it was the best ice cream they had in New England. I thought my pistachio ice cream cone was great. I was also impressed at how reasonably priced their ice cream cost!

Excellent! Fun little place right down the street from The Black Trumpet. Delicious ice cream. A great way to end an evening out.

We arrived just before closing. Ice cream was good but server started slamming Ice cream bins and announcing that he had to mop the floor before we quickly finished two scoops.

No trip into downtown is complete without some Minty Mint cookie or Peanut Butter Fantasy from Annabelle's. The ice cream is delicious and the atmosphere is classic New England just near the water. Believe they are still cash only. One of my favorite places in Portsmouth.

This shop is located in an alley of sorts. You cannot see it from the main road. Don't give up, it's worth a visit! Annabelle's Ice cream is very smooth and flavorful. It's all natural. There are no artificial dyes or coloring in their ice cream. I got one scoop of the graham central station which has graham cracker base... More

This is the best ice cream around, hands down! There are always a choice of over 20 flavors and all ingredients are natural. Lines can be long especially on weekends, but it is so worth it! We stop in at least once each summer. Fabulous!

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.

Thank Wawafont
