Visited today after spending the afternoon at Russell Farm with kids & grandkids. We all really enjoyed our ice cream treats. Worth driving a little out of our way! Will definitely visit again when in the area.

I consider myself to be a novice ice cream critic. Handel's is by far the best ice cream on the planet. My wife and I visit the Carmel location quite often. Don't be discouraged by the long line, it moves quick. Well worth the wait!

Really good ice cream. No inside seating arrangement. But that is alright as you can stand outside while enjoying the ice cream.

Handle's is the place you want to go if you like home made ice cream. They have many many flavors to choose from. During the summer there is always a long line but it is worth the wait.
