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

Great ice cream. Every time I am in Princeton I go to Thomas Sweet. The ice cream is super creamy.It's so good I even go in the winter (they're open through the winter). Try the blend-ins, the house specialty.

I live in Princeton and I often go to Thomas Sweets and get their delicious ice cream. It's prices are very reasonable but you get a great experience!!! I love their blend in and my favorite is putting Toasted Coconuts and Heath Bars. I recommend this place for anyone who loves ice cream as much as I do!!!
