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!!!

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).
