The go to place for ice cream in Cranbury and the immediate area. Large portions as well as small if that is all you want. Very good hand dipped ice cream - many flavors to choose from. You can't go wrong here if you like ice cream.

I've only been to Gil & Bert's Ice Cream twice, but each time I found an abundance of choices. I especially love their Tangerine Ice.

We absolutely love coming here. This place is so family oriented and the Ice Cream is to die for. Nothing better than coming here on a hot summer night grabbing some cold ice cream and relaxing while the kids color with the chalk they provide. My favorite is the Mint Choc chip but the kids love trying the different flavors.... More

Great Ice Cream !!! Open from April till Oct. People come from all over to enjoy the small town atmosphere of people just gathering and visiting. Dogs are welcome at the take out window service and after a few visits they know that they will receive a doggie cone of their very own as a gift from the owners.

There are often lines in the summer to buy ice cream at what has become an institution in Cranbury. They offer a large selection of ice cream flavors and the ice cream is very good.

A not to be missed visit whenever I have my nails done across the street. There is often a line that moves quickly and there are seats for eating.. They only have a walk-up window so all seating is outdoors. An institution on Main Street

Employees were very friendly, welcoming and efficient. I had mint chocolate chip--hubby had soft serve cherry dipped! So refreshing on a 100+ degree day! Be sure to stop if you're in Cranbury!
