Pros: There are many flavors and ways to have the icecrfeam
Cons: It is only available on the East Coast but they seem to be on every corner.
I have never been to any other Carvel's except for the ones that are primarily an icecream facility. They have always been clean and have many varieties to offer as well. The atmosphere always reminds me of a local icecream place that specializes in non "chain like" icecream. I like seeing the large cases filled with their cakes and quarts of icecream. There are also large boards of all the items that they offer and generally there is a lot of space to house people while they wait. Many times I have gone in wanting to try something new and I have always received large sample portions to help me decide on what I end up getting from there.
