I love ice cream and this is one of the best places I have been to. I tried six different flavors (on 2 visits) and all were outstanding. My mother-in-law recommended it and as much as I hate to admit it she was right.

This was our first visit to Abel's, but definitely not our last. Quaint, bright, clean ice cream shop, operated by very friendly and terrific people. Many flavors of wonderful ice cream, and a well stocked case of a variety of chocolate truffles which are wonderful!
