Carvel Ice Cream & Bakery was part of a chain with numerous locations throughout Maryland. In Hunt Valley they were too close to Wegman's which had a huge bakery. Carvel closed two months ago.

Being from NY Carvels were everywhere so we were so excited when this one opened. The employees don't seem to care and the prices are higher here (and they give you much less) than they do at the NY carvels. We ordered a cake for a baby shower and asked what time the store opened. We were told 12 noon... More

Ice cream was very creamy. Milk shake thick. But I'm sorry, more than $10 I thought was a bit expensive. What happen to the Good Humor man??

Soft serve, regular ice cream, sundaes - there is something here for everyone. There is a great selection of ice cream flavors and cones dipped in chocolate with sprinkles. The sundae assortment has something for everyone. They sell ice cream cakes as well and have them stocked in a cooler for take away. This is a great stop after shopping... More

What can one really say about a Carvel Ice Cream parlour? They sell ice cream and most people like ice cream. My girlfriend thought they made a fantastic milkshake. It was so good, in fact, that she went back for a second!

The hard ice cream is good, but I have never before eaten soft serve that is so thick and creamy. It takes you back to a simpler age when you enjoy the ice cream for the ice cream's sake, rather than for all the toppings, fillings, etc. All those things are available to those who want it, but for the...

Carvel has both soft and regular ice cream. I adore their soft ice cream. It is the smoothest creamiest soft ice cream I have ever encountered. Carvel stores used to be more numerous but this is the only one around this area. The soft ice cream is relatively low calory and they have a version that is very low cal.
