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 are mixed in to your ice cream flavor with a special drill press kind of... More

I always used to think that ice cream places had the most boring flavors, that had you just tasting about the same five ice creams over and over again! But then there was Thomas Sweets... I love all of their flavors and admire that they step out of the box, while keeping the ice cream delicious! Although I admire their... More

A trip to Princeton has to include Thomas Sweet Ice Cream dished out by the "Sweeties." Great and unusual flavors that are decadent and delicious. And if you want an extra treat, ask for a blend in with your favorite fruit or candies blended into your favorite ice cream flavor with some hot fudge and real whipped cream on top!... More

Had to wait on a long line to get in so we figured it must be good. Ice cream was excellent especially with the Nutella hot topping. I a double scoop which was large. Prices are reasonable.

Thomas sweet never disappoints ! We must have gone through ( as a family ) most of the items in the menu right from the icecream to the yogurt and blend ins . I cannot point out and say one is better than the other or that I don't like a particular flavor :). This place is exactly what you... 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!

Folks in Princeton told me that Edison once had ice cream here. They even have a photo of him hanging the wall, but there is no way to verify. It's a nice little place with a great variety of ice cream flavours. Cozy set up with limited seats. But it is a small business, so no complains. The ice cream... More

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!,,,
