I love ice cream, but not allowed to have what I used to eat. (Doc's order) The selection is great the folks working the counter are very friendly and kind. They may have sugar free, but other stuff is worth every calorie. THIS STUFF IS REALLY GREAT

Recommended to this place by our hotel so we went one evening. The restaurant has easy parking, easy to find. The inside is very cute - has alot of character in the decorations. The ice cream, however, but just average in my opinion. They had alot of different flavors to choose from, but it was pretty pricey. Fun place to... More

Excellent locally-made ice cream, nice kids working the counters, and good sandwiches and soups for lunch. Truly one of the unique places that make Valpo great.

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
