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!!!

Down past Firestone Library, and across from Cox's, and in one of the old homes, Thomas' Sweets. There is a nice shaded area to sit with a friend and watch the people go past.

We were on a holiday and walked into this place by chance. What a pleasant surprise with extremely friendly staff, great ambience and fantastic ice cream. Such small places add a lot of value to small towns and I would recommend this place to every one.

Place can have long lines, but staff keeps it moving fast. Great ice cream, worth the visit. The blenders are very good

There can be quite a wait at Thomas Sweets on a nice night, but it's worth it! Large selection. Cone or cup. List of mix in options. My favorite flavor is the sweet cream (ice cream base).

Went on a Wed night in 38 deg weather and plenty of people there. Ordered a simple vanilla ice cream with Heath bar blended and was really good. Had a small cup, which was plenty!!

My stepdad introduced our family to Thomas Sweets when we moved to the Princeton area about 6 years ago and I was instantly sold! There was a line out the door so I knew it had to be something good!
