Sweet deal!

I came in to purchase some cherry vanilla ice cream. Sometimes you figure that ice cream is ice cream. Boy, was I wrong! This ice cream was the best ice cream I have ever had. And I could not believe how many cherries it had in the ice cream also. You spend a little more than the ice cream... read more

Blended is a neat twist on mixers and such, but the lack of nuts and crappy service made me wish we went to the ice cream place across the street.

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. They also have a signature dish called Blend-in which is a lot of ice cream but just so tasty. I highly recommend if you are visiting Princeton, this ice cream should be number one on your things to... More

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.
