The Original Velati’s, Inc.
Velati’s Carmel Kitchen and Sweets Shop is now located in downtown Silver Spring,
Maryland. In 2009, the Servais family re-established the iconic caramel
company to the Washington D.C. area. The little store, on Georgia
Avenue, often catches the attention of people
passing by, and many rush in to share their memories of its days at 9th
and G streets or at Woodward and Lothrop. Customers excitedly order caramels and other sweets to be
sent to family members, all over the country, so that they can share in their
wonderful memories once again.
to the caramels made with the original Velati Family recipes used since 1866, Velati’s has added a
number of fine confections that you will find online and in-sotre. Toffee, Truffles, Bon-Bons, Caramel Sea-Salt Turtles,
Caramel Ice Cream and Caramel Ice Cream Toppings have quickly become new favorites.

creamy finish. All caramels have a variety of nuts versions, as well as, chocolate,
marshmallow, coffee and machiatto flavors. Seasonally, Velati’s offers specialty flavors
such as Bourbon, Tequila, Beer, Pumpkin Spice, Black Cherry Brandy, and Eggnog to name a few.
