Soft serve vanilla custard is the way to go here. This little shop is clean and the operator takes a lot of pride in his product.

Tom Carvel, the founder, would be proud of this sore. We come here often with the grandkids for ice cream treats of various kinds. The last several years we have gotten birthday ice cream cakes here which were outstanding. Highly recommended.

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

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!

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!
