“Closed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Don't waste your time looking for this place, they are closed as is the one in Mackinaw city. We looked on the island and finally asked and were told they didn't return this year but that they still had a store in Mackinaw city. It doesn't exist.

“Overpriced ice cream”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012 via mobile

I know everything on the Island is high priced, but this is ridiculous. Dish of ice cream and a cone for $11 seriously??? Well that's if you can get the staff to acknowledge your presence. By the way this isn't a restaurant, its just a ice cream and fudge shop.

“Best fudge on the island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Yes, there are a ton of fudge places on Mackinac Island. However, after much experimenting (and taste-testing), we have discovered that Velvet is indeed the best one! They're not lying: their fudge is so sweet and smooth it is just like velvet. Wonderful peanut butter and chocolate/peanut butter!

“great ice cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

2 doors from the Lilac Tree Suites & Spa. Staff very friendly. The coffee ice cream and the chocolate peanut butter was delicious. It became our lunch every day.

“Best fudge on the island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012 via mobile

Velvet is a more recent addition to the fudge shops on Mackinac Island. I have tried all of the different fudge shops over many years. Velvet is by far the best one.The prices are good and they have a good special going on all the time. Their chocolate cherry is my favorite.
