Hands down the best ice cream!

The charm of this 3rd generation ice cream shoppe is out of this world! Eclectically decorated, wonderful service, and the most amazing, velvety ice cream my family has ever had!

Very creamy, tasty ice cream in old style little ice cream shop. Indoor and outdoor seating. Pleasant servers. Would give it a higher rating if the shop and restroom had been cleaner...

After visiting a bison ranch and chowing down on some great BBQ with granddaughters and niece in tow, we came across this wonderful old fashioned ice cream parlor with incredible selections, a helpful and friendly staff, and a desire to make this a must stop whenever we are in or dear Valparaiso. The girls love it as did the adults.

Nice assortment of sandwiches that lead to the best ice cream in the area. Great place for lunch. Did I mention the ice cream. Family friendly.

A local tradition and one that is still going strong. Want lots of choices of locally made ice cream and sherbets? Want a freshly made waffle cone? Then a trip to Valpo Velvet is in order. The waffle cones were very light and thinner than traditional waffle cones. They serve it in a cup with the cone. I really liked... More

This establishment has a rich creamy ice cream that is family owned. They make the ice cream in house. It is widely available in groceries in the local area.A small selections of sandwiches and salads can also be purchased along with ice cream sundries.

The orange sherbet is combined with cream (I think). Smooth, creamy and the best flavor. Afraid to try something else. When you have a winner....stick with it.

The ice cream is wonderful! So many varieties and so little time. The staff is friendly and patient while you decide what you want to select. They have an outside area with tables.

They are willing to make a banana split the way we grew up eating them. Chocolate, vanilla & strawberry ice cream with strawberry, pineapple and chocolate over them. Just the way my husband remembers. It was very good. A great way to start spring.

This is the best of the best for ice cream! Service is always friendly, the ice cream is exquisite! You won't find a wide range of flavors but enough to satisfy all mouths! Definitely recommend!
