A favorite place of mine in Princeton. Small, quirky shop with the best gelato...word of warning, cash only.

The ice cream and milk shakes are fantastic at this hole in the wall in downtown Princeton. While the prices are not insignificant the quality is really outstanding. Not much space inside to actually eat so a little problem in the winter. Worth an after-dinner shot.

There r interesting flavors, most unusual. But the quality of the ice cream is no better than any other. It is twice as expensive as other creameries & much smaller portions.

One of my favorite things to do while traveling is to find the local ice cream hotspot wherever I am. Without a doubt, this is one of the best I've been able to visit. The place is small with limited seating and has a quirky feel, but the ice cream is simply amazing. If you're in the area, you need... More

No need to go to Italy to find exquisite ice cream. It's right in Princeton. Bent Spoon is a 'one of a kind' type of place, with flavors of ice creams and sorbets like you would never imagine. Hot chocolate with homemade marshmallows is to die for too. Take no notice of the line, if there is one - it... More

One of the most fun and original cupcake/gelato places I've been to. Doesn't matter how long you have to wait in line, it's worth it. There gelato is the centerpiece, but make sure you try the cupcakes and hot chocolate! I've also purchased an ice cream cake for someone's birthday and it was the talk of the party. If you're...

Extremely popular and therefore often mobbed in the summer -- has some unusual flavors (not everyone may like every one of them) -- most all flavors are delicious -- read the descriptions before you order. Pricey -- but hey, it's Princeton! Highly recommend!

We found a time with no line - weekday on a really cold winter's day - with the additional advantage that your ice cream doesn't melt. The ice cream has some interesting flavours, the bourbon caramel was one of the best caramel flavours I have have ever tasted. The ice cream is very fresh, very creamy and not overly sweet.... More

I've been wanting to try Bent Spoon for the longest time so I'm glad I finally made it here. We came around 8:30 PM on a Saturday night in November, and there was a line of about 10 people. We had time to survey the flavors - it's important to read the descriptions since the names alone didn't fully describe... More
