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

It was below freezing outside but Halo ice cream was what we needed to warm us up. Homemade, sourced from local farms, there are an assortment of flavors and none too sweet to spoil your appetite for more. We had peach, coffee, black cherry, strawberry, lemon, strawberry chocolate chip and other flavors. Peach is unique. The selection of cakes offered... More

Great Prices, Great ice cream, quick service, easy location. What more can you ask for. a wide assortment of ice cream - both soft and hard. They serve coffee if you need one. There is limited seating inside and some benches outside.
