I prefer Abel's Ice Cream over all others. The owner is always happy. I wouldn't go anywhere else for ice cream or chocolates.

Great tasting ice cream and huge servings. Owners and staff very nice. Bright and pretty surroundings. While we were there the owner actually went outside and helped a man look for his lost phone in his car.

We love going to this local ice cream shop. The flavors are diverse and delicious, the servers friendly and fast and the owners put their heart and soul into it. They also carry delicious chocolates and jams and sauces which make great gifts or special treats!
