Always a must

Can't tell you how many times I've been to this shop. A fantastic choice, friendly staff and a great selection of add ins Unfortunately, on this occasion I made the wrong choice - my fault not theirs. I should have made use of their tasting offer

I have been eating ice cream at Thomas Sweets my entire life and have yet to find better ice cream anywhere else.

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!

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!

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.
