When I found out Carvel was going to be opening in San Diego I was so excited, since it is one of my favorite ice cream places from back East. Well I think something is missing from this Carvel, it is not as good as I was hoping for. The store employees have trouble making something as simple as a coffee shake. I have been in several times and I keep hoping they will get it right, but so far they have not.
I do enjoy the premade frozen treats such as the brown bonnet, an ice cream cone dipped in chocolate and frozen.
Also the soft serve ice cream is good and they have a little bowl that they use around the cone so your ice cream and toppings won't drip.
If you have never been to a Carvel Ice Cream Shop then you should go and you will probably enjoy it, but if you have been to Carvel on the East Coast then you will probably be disappointed.
