Absolute Favorite Ice Cream

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 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.

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. The owner wanted it... More
