“Yummy,great service!”
Reviewed August 28, 2011

We went in for ice cream after dinner. Selection ,service (friendly), taste(oh my! ice cream was creamy , Fudge - peanut butter - my favorite was excellent), and location was perfect for us. Close to dock and Park Place, we got some to go back to our hotel. We couldn't get enough! It was GREAT!

“Sweetest sweets on the island!”
Reviewed August 18, 2011

My wife and I recently visited Mackinac Island for our 20th anniversary. One night after dinner, we went prowling for dessert. After visiting a number of candy and ice cream shops, we happened to stop at Velvet, which is a dessert shop that carries chocolates, fudge, and a number of other confections. We were particularly drawn to the ice cream. The portions were large, the price was reasonable, and the quality was excellent. We were impressed by the variety of flavors and the rich, creamy texture that didn't dissolve into a puddle of foam moments after being scooped into the dish. While many of the shops on the island start to seem interchangeable after a while, Velvet has a unique ambiance. It is a one-of-a-kind shop; nothing cookie-cutter about this place! It is cozier and more intimate than any other dessert shop on the island. What particularly impressed us was the warmth of the owner. She was more than willing to accommodate special requests, and we appreciated her sense of humor and sincerity. Customer service is clearly a priority to her, but it's more than just a clever business ploy. She genuinely seems to enjoy and appreciate her customers.
