Adele's Frozen Custard
Excelsior, MN 55331
City Pages' Description
Frozen custard is one of those cult-favorite foods that spawns fierce devotion on the part of the initiated. That's why this lakeside custard stand draws crowds nearly all year. Yeah, they're closed in very deepest winter, but if you can sell ice cream to Minnesotans in March, you must be doing something extraordinary. And Adele's is: Basically, they've worked into their custard stand everything good about Italian gelato--egg yolks, a velvety mouth-feel, everyday-fresh preparation--with everything good about old-fashioned American soft-serve stands--big portions; toppings like fresh toasted pecans, buttery caramel sauce, homemade waffle cones with malted-milk balls at the bottom; and an option for a real chocolate malt.
Tips from foursquare
Get the strawberry shortcake. They make their shortcake fresh, from scratch.
Voted City Pages top ten ice cream shops! t's not exactly ice cream, and it's not exactly the Twin Cities, but Adele's frozen custard stand is too good not to include.
Everyday they have a new flavor of the day Among the regular line up. And some are really amazing.
They have one of the best chocolate malts I've ever had. If you're a chocolate fan you must try it! The pulled pork sandwich is also to die for.
get the cookie dough concrete mixer. puts DQ to shame! giant chunks of cookie dough throughout. enjoy!!
