I'm picky, for me it is just ok. My grand children and husband like it quite a bit. Carvel does off some fun and unique style cakes and ice creams and it was great for my grand son's birthday - a soccer cake!

I love Carvel's. There is no ice cream or frozen yogurt in the valley that compares to their soft serve. Flavor is fantastic and so creamy. Outstanding ice cream. My kids from time to time get their hard packed ice cream and they like it...More

The owners are so friendly and inviting. They, combined with a product I remember as a treat from my youth, make this a worthwhile stop. It's a simple ice cream shop, but the service is fantastic and they really aim to please. Tip: If you...More
