Decent frozen yogurt place in Princeton

One of the better places for frozen yogurt in Princeton. Some other places around the area have closed, but Thomas's typically has three alternating flavors....a vanilla, chocolate and cookies and cream or something similar.

Good local place for ice cream and other deserts. Good variety but service can be slow as it is located near Princeton University. Prices seem reasonable for the area.

There are two locations, one on Nassau st. the other up the road on 206 in Montgomery. Both sell the same home made ice cream, really good stuff. It can get crowded but that's what happens when you make folks happy.

A small ice cream shop on Nassau Street. Nothing fancy but the different flavors and generous servings are worth the visit. Am a fan and will return if given the opportunity!

Famous ice cream eatery. Talk about heavenly, I hope there's ice cream like this up there! I ordered a double scoop of French vanilla on a sugar cone and got the biggest ice cream I ever saw. It rivaled the leaning Tower of Pissa. It took me 1/2 hour but I finished it all!! My wife had a small cup... More

I got the last scoops of the barrel of chocolate chip. It was very soft, melting actually. The taste was good, but the consistency was off. The student working there was very friendly and helpful regarding questions about Princeton.

It all depends. If you're looking for boutique sized servings of exotic ice cream flavours in an up-market atmosphere, Bent Spoon is probably the ticket. But if you want a generous serving of decadent flavours in a relaxed setting, go Thomas Sweet. Bottom line: our kids much prefer Thomas Sweet.

Good quality Ice Cream with nice service, try their blend in option something different than normal ice cream place. We went their Saturday night and place was packed and we were waiting in line for 10 minutes. When you get to counter all individuals working at this place are nice and treat everyone well. Given that it was nice summer... More

This ice cream hole is an institution. It's a must visit every time you're in town. It's kids friendly and the ice cream is money in the bank!

One of my favorites of all time. Love the blend in options. Can't speak to their chocolates and candies, but their ice cream is darn good. If you're int he area, don't miss it.
