Wide variety of ice cream. Small, unassuming place. Fun for all ages. Like an old fashion ice cream parlor.

Valpo Velvet Ice Cream is a nastolgic trip to a more innocent time with its welcoming staff and wide array of delicious treats. I ordered the chocolate marshmallow ice cream with marshmallow topping. The ice cream was creamy and flavorful, and topping was sweet with a gooey texture. I would give 5 stars, but they were out of whipped cream and the price was a little high.

Looks fun and inviting but bring a wad of cash if there's more than just 1 person. Approximately $2.50 for a single scoop cone that didn't taste any better than a mid priced store brand, save your money and go to DQ, even with their price increases, Valpo Velvet makes them a bargain.

We eat lunch at Valpo Velvet once or twice a week. Very large selection of sandwiches, the soups are amazing (especially Mrs. B's clam chowder, tomato basil, and cheeseburger) and their daily specials are excellent! We LOVE their sloppy joes every Saturday, and the Wednesday specials are usually a great meatloaf or pot roast served as an open faced sandwich with gravy and mashed potatoes. Check their FaceBook page for other daily specials.

Similarly their ice creams are outstanding! Very creamy and flavorful--their coconut almond fudge is my new favorite, but no one has topped their butter pecan.

Their staff is very friendly and responsive, and the owner couple regularly greet the customers and respond to questions and suggestions.

My only complaint is they are no longer open year round so we're only able to eat there from April through late Fall/early winter.

We highly recommend Valpo Velvet!
