A colleague recommended the Bent Spoon. I went there late afternoon after a long flight - excellent ice cream, some unusual flavours and pretty well priced. I didn't eat dinner, this kept me going!

I sort of laughed when I saw that an ice cream place was listed as the number 1 restaurant in Princeton on Trip Advisor, so of course I had to go. And maybe I shouldn't have been surprised, but it was the best ice cream I've ever had. Handmade on premises, interesting flavors and a small cup let's you try... More

For a special treat, we will occasionally go to The Bent Spoon in downtown Princeton for their delicious ice creams and sorbets. This winter, we decided to try their hot chocolate to warm up on the frigid, snowy days. Our eyes lit up with the first sip: Bent Spoon's hot chocolate was undoubtedly the best hot chocolate we had both... More

They don't have a large section, but that make up for that in quality. Great unusual flavors of ice cream and sorbet. Located in a great little shopping area.

This is a really amazing ice cream joint! They buy local and use organic products when possible. Their flavors are so different and change frequently. I love the quality, taste and creativity. Bravo to the owners. This establishment is a breath of fresh air.

We love this place.Lots of dairy free choices as well!This is really important as we have family members who don"t include dairy in their diets and what is a summer time treat that doesn't include everyone.

I love the Bent Spoon- the flavors are unique, the ingredients are organic and locally-sourced, and the people working there are nice. Some potential cons, though: It's CASH only, and the ice cream/gelati is expensive, so be warned. Also, it's cramped inside, so if the weather is nice, definitely take it to go- otherwise, it's pretty close quarters in there.
