We were so excited to see a Carvel open down the street since we are from New York and we grew up on the stuff. We went two years ago when it opened an it was disappointing. But I was driving by today and decided to give it another shot. Oh my...what a huge waste of time and money. First - the owner who is also the only person working there is rude, grumpy, and has no patience while you try to decide what you would like to have. But I smiled anyway and order a small chocolate cone w/chocolate crunchies to eat which was tiny, and poufed with air so it tasted like nothing. The choc crunchies (all 3 of them) were old and stale. I also got my husband a large cup of no sugar added vanilla ice cream. When we got it home it was old, chewey, and freezer burned. I also bought a six pack of low fat ice cream sandwhiches (kinda like a flying saucer). They were 9 dollars and tasted old and freezer burned. $16 dollars later I was so disappointed that my childhood favorite has turned in to a poorly run franchise that is a Carvel in name only. I'm told the cakes are still good --- but I'm also told that those come from the factory and are not made on site, which would explain why they are still good. Basically - AVOID THIS CARVEL. I could ignore the grumpy owner if the ice cream was any good, but the bottom line is that iIt is overpriced and the product is terrible. I have a feeling this particular Carvel is not going to be able to stay in business much longer. (and of course, I was the only customer in there...)
Pros: Hmmm... Good Parking?
Cons: Rude/Grumpy owner, Crummy air poufed soft serve ice cream, overpriced
