Awesome custard shakes and malts! They have limited sandwiches and quick meals. Always good! No open over winter. Cant wait for spring.

Your trip to the quaint town of Excelsior isn't complete unless you finish it off at Adele's. Adele's is an awesome seasonal frozen custard shop just a few blocks from downtown Excelsior. Lake Minnetonka is just across the street. Adele's custard is always delicious and if you're not sure of a flavor, ask for a sample. There's a new custard... More

This was a stop after dinner. Limited seating indoors. The pumpkin custard was excellent. There are some sandwich items but the attraction is the custard.

Cute business, locally owned, and well established. Fun place to stop for frozen custard or frozen yogurt any time, but especially on a summer's evening. Just off the bike trail, so a fun destination.

Frozen custard has always been one of my favorites so when visiting friends in this area she suggested we try this shop. It was very good, we all enjoyed it. The clerk mentioned there was another frozen custard shop in town but the other shop got theirs "pre-made" and Adele's makes theirs daily, on site. My only negative comment is... More

We have a number of ice cream shops in town, but this is my absolute favorite! I had never had frozen custard before until we moved to the Midwest. They make a fresh flavor every day. It's creamy, soft serve in a waffle cone with a Whopper at the bottom to stop the drips. I think the best flavor is... More

Title says it all.. the custard is amazing! Their caramel apple sundae is delicious! Their employees however are not pleasant at all. The girl working the register didn't say a word to us except for the total, not even thank you! The outdoor seating is nice, too, but not well kept in terms of cleanliness during the day. Most tables... More

They do a great job with both their custards and frozen yogurts. It is mostly drive-thru or take out. Only a couple of tables inside and 8 on the outside patio. Definitely worth a visit.

New flavors available every day. Great place for dessert after lakeside meal at Maynards or Bayside. Only a short walk to downtown Excelsior.
