Family favorite for generations

I grew up with Carvel on the east coast and was thrilled to see them pop in Michigan. The owner is really kind and the soft serve is great!

Carvel has been favorite in the state of New Jersey, almost since highway food and ice cream originally popped up, hoping to benefit from all the new motorists the expanded roadways brought with them. And it worked! Especially for Carvel, which remains among the most popular. Better than average soft serve, as well as scoopable flavors are the basic fare,... More

WOW. Very Good Malts. Just like they used to make at the malt shops way back when. If you like malts over a milk shake. This is a place to try. They have good ice cream as well.

I grew up in New York eating Carvel and missed eating it for many years here in Michigan. Now that I've moved to Canton I'm finally able to get my Carvel fix. I just love their ice cream! But the best thing about this Carvel is the owner. He's such a delightful man and brings great customer service skills to... More

I could eat here every day! The staff is so nice. The ice cream is creamy and delicious. You can try samples of their ice cream and it's handed to you with a smile. No matter how many samples! Yes it's kinda pricey but they do run specials!

Hands down best ice cream I've ever had. The staff is so nice which is a rarity these days. You'll never want a normal birthday cake again when you try their ice cream cakes.
