Did you know you can hire the VALPO Velvet Ice Cream truck to come to your events? We hired them to come to my daughter's wedding reception. There were cheers when the truck arrived to serve their ice cream and assorted frozen treats. Great variety and service, but best of all, delicious Ice cream.

By far my favorite ice cream place in Valpo!!! Great ice cream flavors, sorbet and yogurt options for healthier options, and a ton of specialty items. Also has a great lunch menu which also gets overlooked.

We expected a lot when we visited Valpo Velvet as we saw so much about it but it was only average ice cream, not any better than chain store ice creams.

Typical, old-fashioned ice cream/sandwich counter. Order, step to the register, pay, take your food. There are a TON of flavors to choose from, and there were at least 24 out when we were there, plus a lot of frozen yogurt flavors. Friendly staff, great location.

We make it a point to get our Valpo Velvet fix whenever we visit. The place has a charming decor, with brightly painted chairs themed to the many flavors of ice cream they offer. The menu boards on the back wall are almost overwhelming, but after a little while I found some unique flavors and had a sundae. The ice... More

Busy place and can feel crowded but the ice cream is great. Numerous ice cream flavors from the typical to their own creations. They also serve sandwiches. The menu was a bit overwhelming with all they have to offer. Hometown classic and worth a visit.

My daughters and I had really looked forward to getting a treat here, so drove the 25 minutes from our hotel. The quality of what we ordered was good, but it was cramped and crazy busy. So-so seating and s cramped patio were our choices. Overall, I wouldn't consider it a "must go" sort of place.

This place has ice-cream, shakes, and anything sweet! Lots of different flavors that keep you coming back for more. The staff are incredibly helpful and nice! I also know the owners to be great people so I appreciate a good business with good owners! Stop by for a sweet treat!

Yep, a great place to stop for a "cool" treat. Plenty to choose from, and the ice cream is tasting. Will look forward to the next stop.
