My friend who lives in Rockville took us here after dinner. Kids really enjoyed the custard as did I.

Had a mango gelati here and it was amazing. You can taste the true difference between here and other places. The custard was very good too! Had to wait long but hey it was a Saturday night in the summer and it was worth it! Line moved pretty quick as they have a good system!

I didn't think custard could be so good! There really is no real great way to describe this without eating it. Its right off I-270, 30 minutes from DC!

This is one of the best dessert venue I have ever seen. Everything we had was the best. If you don't go you won't know what you're missing!

Having had fozen custard in Wisconsin, I am spoiled. Hard to find custard in teh Mid Atlantic, but stumbled across Carmen's. Unlike most places, they serve Jersey style custard which is a little less rich and lighter in texture. They also had 5 flavors to choose from as opposed to 3 in most other places. They also have Italian ices... More

What can I say? Carmen's was AMAZING! We were in the area for the Cherry Blossom Festival. Our trip to Carmen's was the perfect accompaniment to our official kick off to spring/summer! The service was so friendly, and the custard and Italian Ice was delicious! So many flavor combinations, creative marketing and sales strategies really invite customers to try it... More
