Abbott's frozen custard is rich, creamy and refreshing. The staff was super friendly and helpful. It is the perfect spot to grab a yummy dessert.

Had a hankering for something cold tonight and there was a parking space out front so went in for a small dish of frozen custard. $5 with tax is alot for the smallest option, but it was tasty and did the trick

I have been going to Abbot since they opened in Needham for years. I have never been disappointed with the quality and the kindness of the servers. They are a great addition to our town and their custard is the best.

A nice addition to Needham Center. Very delicious ice cream with a nice variety of flavors. It is a bit pricey though.

Sorry not sure of the price, I was fortunate that someone else picked up the tab, but whatever the price it was worth it.
