Nothing special here at all. Just an ice cream pick up counter and a couple tables. We tried J Foster last month and preferred that much more. This just seems to have that chain, cookie cutter feel.

My kids wanted to go here so I took them against my better judgment. Soft serve is loaded with all kinds of junk and this tasted no different than all the other chemically ridden brands. I understand some have a nostalgic connection to Carvel, but the way it's made has changed significantly from the original decades ago. I recommend going... More

Love Carvel ice cream especially vanilla. The family here is so nice. Spotlessly clean. We were regulars. Can not think of anything I dislike about this Carvel.

My husband is diabetic, and the staff was able to make him a special sugar-free cake. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Their ice cream never disappoints.

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 although I've never tried it. The soft serve is so good I don't know how... 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 order a cake for a special occasion, they will make it with any flavors you'd... More

I have been a fan of Carvel ice cream for many years. There has been an ice cream supermarket (as they call them) in Avon for decades. I am very fond of their vanilla soft serve. It is creamy and I love putting it into a sugar cone (although I have also developed a fondness for strawberry ice cream sundaes... More

The owners of this Carvel are such kind and accommodating people. We come here whenever we need an ice cream treat. They go out of their way to make sure you are satisfied with your order and are very friendly. This weekend I special ordered a custom photo cake for a party and everybody loved it.
