Whenever I have out of town visitors, I take them to Annabelle's. Definitely my favorite, especially their pistachio, salted caramel and pumpkin ice cream.

After dinner treat. Large cup of Coffee Espresso Ice Cream was tasty creamy and smooth and a good size for two to split. Since it was a cool fall evening there was no line. Staff was friendly. Touristy prices.

We stopped to get ice cream here with our grandkids and it was expensive but they do not allow you to use bred it cards. At least they didn't when we visited there. The ice cream was good but not the best we have had in this area. The location is great and it is a cute little shop.

Stopped for a quick ice cream- not disappointed at all! Kids loved Gummy lobsters. Good $ for great ice cream! Good family place.

Very good service, and the ice cream cone was delicious. Seemed a little less expensive than other ice cream parlors in Portsmouth.

Delicious ice cream, great staff! We enjoyed our dessert at Annabelle's - especially my 2.5 year old who wanted "purple ice cream." I tried explaining to her that there was no such thing as purple ice cream when one of the girls behind the counter said "Actually our blackberry is light purple!" Thank goodness for her!

The entrance is hidden, around the back. But it is worth finding. This homemade ice cream gives favorites like Ben and Jerry's a run for their money!

Family of 11 enjoyed reasonably priced ice cream treat. Ice cream was creamy and not airy. Service was quick and friendly. Make the trip off the beaten path for this gem.

We stood in the outside line with the worn out sign of flavors to peruse. My daughter ordered lemon sorbet and the teenage employee rudely yelled mango only. My daughter switched to ice cream and was rudely cut off before she could finish. Both my husband and myself were barked at for our flavor choice then our cups were slammed... More

Anabelle's is a bit off the beaten path in Portsmouth but it is really worth finding. I like their flavors and you can sit inside in A/C if you would like. One nice touch is that ice water is available for customers.
