Ice Cream at its best

Princeton is blessed with having some of the best ice cream options of any town. The trifecta is made up of Thomas Sweets, The Bent Spoon and Halo Pub. All three exceptional. What in my view makes Halo Pub so special is the setting. Old fashioned wood décor with a predominantly bovine themed set... read more

Simply the best, no fancy flavors like the Bent Spoon- so if that's what you're looking for this ain't the place, but if you want good ice cream, this is the place. Plenty of flavors but just nothing like avocado or anything...

I visited Halo with a friend after dinner for a quick dessert and was not disappointed. The staff were friendly, offered free tasters and delivered service with a smile. The fact that it's set in an old pub just adds to the experience!

I like Halo pub ice cream because it is not extremely fat. It has many varieties of chocolate ice cream.The place itself is also nice,with seating room inside and a bench outside. Really good espresso, too.

An unusually warm December found us strolling to one of our favorite spots - for ice cream. A perennially popular after-dinner spot, Halo Pub serves wonderful, fresh ice cream. Flavor choices are broad, and all are delicious. The ambience is warm and authentic, and the servers are friendly and attentive. Prices are reasonable as well. When summer weekends roll around,...

They have the best ice cream in New Jersey and very reasonable price. Their ice cream made from Halo Fram near by. There are always lines in summer time.

My kids love this ice cream and have for ever. They are now in their 30s. I love it too. Inexpensive, fresh and delicious. Their ice cream cakes are great too!

The Palmer Square area of Princeton has a lot of great ice cream spots. Halo Pub has more seating than the other spots and classic ice cream flavors. I'm partial to the black cherry.

The best icecream in Priceton. I suggest to visit Halo here after walk in downtown. Coffee chips and chocolate chips are great. There is also a cousy room with some tables to relax.
