OMIGOSH -- I loved, loved, LOVED this place. We went twice for ice cream. They have such a variety of flavors, and the ice cream is so very good -- tastes very much "homemade". I will dream about this place for the rest of my life. (I am an ice cream fanatic.) A nearby competitor is the Bent Spoon, but... More

You will see long lines here but don't worry. Service is fast and lines move quickly. Good flavors. Great tasting ice cream. A must do if you are coming here for a visit. Just ask the locals.

I have been here twice in the past two weeks and thought it was great both times. I got butter pecan ice cream the first time which was pretty good, and a mint cookies and cream shake the second time which was delicious. I would highly recommend the mint cookies and cream flavor. There was a line out the door... More

I remember when this place used to charge $1.50 for a scoop of ice cream...hands down one of the absolute best deals around...then it crept up to $1.75 and then up to $2. An even $2 wasn't too bad. Now the owners are starting to get greedy and milk the customers as the prices have risen to $2.25 right before... More

Stop in for a one scoop cup of which ever flavor ice-cream. Just at the edge of Griggs Corner, on Hulfish. Its worth a little walk from Nassau Street, just behind Nassau Inn.

We always opt for here instead of the other Princeton Ice Cream establishments, as the ice cream is so rich and creamy. A little confusing with the desserts next door where there is never anyone behind the counter? But the flavours and the toppings are terrific. They have an efficient sraff that keeps things moving.

When in the center of Princeton we just skip dessert and head for Halo. Their ice cream beats all desserts on offer. Wide selection, fast service even when the lines reach to the door. They also serve good coffee. Sit down (there is a small section next to the main area with seating and ice cream cakes) or take out.... More
