I had first visited Thomas Sweet many years ago and forgot how good the ice cream is. Their flavors run the gamut from basic vanilla to really creative. The best part however is your ability to choose from a huge variety of blend ins that...More

When driving in different areas we ALWAYS check out the local ice cream shops. Small shop in the middle of town, quaint interior, the Ice Cream was delicious, we had Raspberry, Strawberry, and a Salted Caramel cup. ALL WERE OUTSTANDING!

We always go to Thomas Sweets when we come to visit family from the UK. A proper old school ice cream parlour with a wide range of flavours. This is a perfect way to cool down on a hot Princeton day.

We have been coming here for 25 years because we love the chocolate chip cookie ice cream. It is not cookie dough, but a brown sugar flavored ice cream with tons of dark chocolate chips. Yum!,,,
