No trip into downtown is complete without some Minty Mint cookie or Peanut Butter Fantasy from Annabelle's. The ice cream is delicious and the atmosphere is classic New England just near the water. Believe they are still cash only. One of my favorite places in Portsmouth.

This shop is located in an alley of sorts. You cannot see it from the main road. Don't give up, it's worth a visit! Annabelle's Ice cream is very smooth and flavorful. It's all natural. There are no artificial dyes or coloring in their ice cream. I got one scoop of the graham central station which has graham cracker base... More

This is the best ice cream around, hands down! There are always a choice of over 20 flavors and all ingredients are natural. Lines can be long especially on weekends, but it is so worth it! We stop in at least once each summer. Fabulous!

One of the best ice creams I've ever had. Reasonable prices too! The salted caramel chip was amazing and my husband enjoyed his ice cream too. He had the one with cashews.

Tried to go earlier in the day and it was just too busy. I talked the family in going back as I heard such good things. SO glad we did. The staff was great and ice cream was better. We tried the yellow brick road, kahlua chocolate and peanut butter fudge waffle cones. So yummy on a 96 degree sticky... More

Small, crowded and off the main drag, it's worth finding. Very rich, creamy ice cream with a great mouth feel. And not overly sweet either. Lots of funky flavors but I stuck with my go to- chocolate. These people know what they are doing.

According to TripAdvisor, this is the #1 Ice Cream venue in Portsmouth - so we had to try it. After having dinner at another local venue, we walked down to the river on Ceres Street for an ice cream. The place was packed inside and out but, service was spectacular moving people along well. The ice cream is well crafted... More
