Good meal, great service!

I went with a friend for a quick dinner. The sandwiches were just what we needed and the lattes were perfect. The best part of our visit was the service--attentive, but not too much!

Now that I live in Princeton, it is more convenient to get ice cream here. They have a nice selection of flavors, and specials like the... More

We were here most recently for an ice-cream dessert for our son's family b'day celebration. After 25 years of enjoying this place, it is no surprise that it was absolutely delicious! Our party ranged in age from eight to 75, and everyone loved their selection. The specialty has always been the "blend-in," but everything, from cones to cups to sundaes,... More

There ice cream is great... lots of good flavors to choose from, with mix-ins or in my students case not choose from! Their coffee milkshake was nice! They do have a hidden seating section... on the other side of a wall.

This is a famous ice cream place on Nassau street in Princeton, NJ. Has a few tables inside and some outside. They have lots of flavor and milk shakes. Lots of toppings and blend ins. Staff is friendly.

Tomas Sweets Has good ice cream and you can pick your "topping" and they use a special blender to mix in your ice cream with m&ms and stuff like that. Very cool.

We've been coming here for the 15 years we've lived in NJ - A family favorite. From the flavors, to the Palisades Park Mirror, this is a wonderful ice cream store. Servers will give extra hot fudge - servings are generous. Plus they offer stamps - buy nine and the 10th is free - they will always give the most... More

Drove to Princeton for dinner one evening and was told by a friend that I needed to stop by this ice cream shop. I must say I was not disappointed. So many great flavors and mix-ins that the combinations are endless. Next time I'm in Princeton, I will definitely be stopping by Thomas Sweet again.

A tiny ice cream shop in the heart of Princeton. Pretty good ice cream. I would prefer to go around the block to Halo farms for their homemade icecream and desserts at half the price
