I’ve been to the Bent Spoon a few times over the years, most recently this afternoon. Let me put it plainly: It is not only the best ice cream place in New Jersey, it is the best ice cream place I have ever been to. Hands down. It is a Princeton treasure and not to be missed.
It is a tiny space on Palmer Square with little seating. No matter. I recommend finding a bench across the street. You will not be disappointed. They have a wide variety of unique and creative flavors you don’t find everywhere. They also let you get scoops of different flavors so you can try a few at once. It makes deciding easier. Today I had a scoop of the basil (trust me, it is amazing) and a scoop of lavender mascarpone (what else do I have to say?), a favorite of mine. I’ve also enjoyed the chocolate habanero.
Don’t skip the Bent Spoon. Forgo dessert elsewhere.
