Party of 10, kids and adults. Yummy, yummy ice cream. Love the mixing in of stuff. One comment of milkshake being too thin, but lots of smiling faces! Midnight Jersey Shore was great.

They have more interesting flavors, toppings, and methods to mix them than anyplace in Princeton or surrounding towns. Staff is also friendly and fast, prepare to wait in line in Summer but it's worth the wait and you can meet nice people too! Enjoy

The ice cream in general is great but what really makes this place good is the blend-ins. It's like a DQ Blizzard but much much better.

Now this is real ice cream. So many flavors and so many options. So good to get a cup or cone and take a long walk around Princeton.

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
