My trip to Boston is never complete unless i have my usual marshmallow sundae here. The ice cream is the best and the food is good too! They have friendly staff, reasonable prices, food - delicious. A must to take your family to. Your kids eyes will light up when they get their sundae.

I always come back for the Frappes. Food is good and a decent price. Can get crowded.

“Great for breakfast, lunch or dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2012

We went to Cabot's twice in our three day stay in Newton; once for a late evening dinner and dessert and then back for ice cream again!!! Great sandwiches, fries and homey specials. Amazing ice cream. Tons of flavors as well as lots of fun sundaes...from the traditional to unique. Attentive service from college student type help. Friendly folks! Cash only but ATM in lobby. A "Must do"!!!
