If you want ice cream in mercer county, don't go anywhere else.

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,... read 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

We were introduced to the Halo Pub about 20 years ago and still find it to be the best place in the Princeton area for ice cream! Good variety of flavor sat very reasonable prices.

Halo Pub focuses on the ice cream, and that's because its ice cream can stand alone--toppings aren't necessary! A huge range of flavors, some suited to my husband who likes fruit (and who wouldn't like peach ice cream in the summer) and me who likes nuts and chocolate. The ice cream is rich, but not too rich, and sweet, but... More

Nice, efficient staff with a line out the door moving quickly. Lots of choices. Really good ice cream. Reasonably priced. I would definitely come back!

Good ice cream, friendly service & outstanding prices! Try the pistachio & mango, they're absolutely divine.

Have been going to different ice cream places since mid 1980's in Princeton. Halo is best, despite what the Thomas Sweet groupies like my son say. Go to Halo and get the coffee chip cone and you will see.

They have maybe more than a hundred of different flavors and if you like chocolate ones there is your place. The price is very reasonable and you can order from half spoon to tree spoons sizes. It gets very crowded during the sunny weekends!

I was at a weekend getaway to Princeton with some friends and stopped by this place for some ice cream. All I have to say is.. this place is a MUST on your Princeton tour. It's a really cute, quaint place with so many flavors of ice cream - so, SO many to choose from. The best part is they... More
