We live in France and when we come to Needham to visit our son and his family one of our rituals is to pop into Abbott's. Ice cream or frozen custard, try some of each because you won't be disappointed. The portions are large, good value for money, and the products are brilliant. None of the trendy squirt and swirl their competitors flog, just delicious old fashioned ice cream. Whitebeard83

My boyfriend and I tried the frozen custard here after a lunch at Sweet Basil. Neither of us had tried frozen custard, and we were both very pleased. I got the almond/chocolate and my boyfriend got the butterscotch--both were equally delicious! Our flavors were very rich and I thought a small was plenty--if not too big! Be careful not to over-order. The service was great and the cashier was very knowledgeable and helpful when we were trying to pick out our flavors. We will be back!

If you haven't tried frozen custard you do not know what you are missing. And this place makes the best. Simple, creamy and delicious.

Great ice cream. Limited selection but all freshly made. Sit outside and eat on a hot summer's night. Go for the black raspberry.
