Best ice cream in Princeton

The best ice cream in Princeton. Don't waste your time going anywhere else. Try the vanilla with chocolate covered almonds, and you will see what I mean.

Not that Halo Pub needs more customers because the line is usually way out the door. The Ice cream ,made locally , is delicious and prices are extremely reasonable. You can get a tiny cone or cup which is 2 ounces for $1.75! You can treat a family of four for under $10! Gotta love it!

Great favors...unusual, but not outlandish if you know what I mean. Had a cone with 'chocolate butter pecan' and pistachio for $2.50. A bargain anywhere but especially in Princeton. Go. Eat. Enjoy! :-)

This locally popular ice cream store has many flavors of ice cream and soft ice cream (just had pomegranate sorbet tonight) in addition to frozen confections. You can also get coffee and hot chocolate. Stay and sit in the booths to gaze at the cow decorated walls or walk about its Palmer Square location. The earnest young bartenders are eager... More

An inside and outside ice cream parlor with a plethora of ice cream flavors - from coconut to chocolate dough to Oreo chip ice cream. The line of people waiting to be attended to is generally long, yet goes fairly fast. Only in last few years, they have added a dessert room. Abe to eat outdoors if u prefer.

It is like an old fashion ice cream parlar except it is at the perferct location with helpful staff. More importantly, they have a dairy factory in Trenton 10 miles away to supply their ice cream products. The seatings are limited but very attractive. The decoration is very rustic. The prices are insanely cheap compare to other local ice cream... More

Halo Pub ruined all store bought ice cream for me. I grew up in this area, and Halo Pub is still the only place I will ever go for ice cream. The dairy is local and from cows that are well taken care of. The ice cream is rich and delicious. There are tons of flavors, more than ample toppings,... More

Want ice cream made with the very best ingredients? This is the place to go. Lots of flavors to choose from and coffee drinks too! The companion shop front is Halo Fete, where you can buy the most impressive and delicious ice cream cakes. Their products are made with milk from local farms, where no hormones or antibiotics are used,... More

This is the place for ice cream in Princeton. There are others, but considering the quality of ingredients Halo is the best. They get their dairy (milk and cream) from their own farm nearby, so the ice creams are made as fresh as is possible these days. This helps them keep prices reasonable. They have some great flavors - nothing... More
