“Not easy to find, well worth it.”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

We asked four people in Portsmouth where the best ice cream was. Three told us Annabelle's, one said Izzy's. It is on a small street near the water. We had cones of cashew caramel crunch (lots of nuts in it) and peanut butter and all were great.

“cool spot...”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

...tonnes of choice for different ice creams, in fact a bit overwhelming. managed to select some all the same.
note that the scoops are very big...the "kids portion" seems to be so called because it is the same volume as a child....

“Love this place”
Reviewed July 26, 2012 via mobile

Oh yes Ice cream, all favors all the extras that you would ever want. The staff had a very simple way of getting lots of people thought is a short time. They holler out who is next that knows what they want? Why has this concept not been used more in places that have 500 kids standing with indecision stamped on their foreheads? They are fast, nice to deal with and have great ice cream! No I do not think they make it Onsite but it is good ice cream.

“Tourist trap”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

The best thing was the air conditioning. Very expensive for such a small portion.

“Here's the Scoop”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

Wife, Kids and I all loved it. Friendly atmosphere sit outside and people watch or watch the boats in the river. Everything we tried in 2 visits was fresh and had that homemade taste. Little tricky to find so keep your eyes open and don't get confused with the ice cream shop on the corner.
