“Fine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

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. Cash only!
The decor is that of an English pub which, even after over a decade I find a little odd.

“Will go again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

Have never been here and glad I have the chance to go! My four year old couldn't get enough of their chocolate ice cream. Rum raisin? Oh wow.............the pictures in this place are so much fun. Very cozy and prices are ok considering it is Princeton. Count me in as a Halo Pub groupie and a person who will be back every time I am in Princeton!

“Best tasting and affordable Ice Cream in Princeton, NJ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Halo Pub has the most delicious ice cream in NJ. Huge assortment of flavors. They make their own ice cream. Great prices too! For $2 you can have a full scoop of ice cream. Can't be beat, besides the quality is excellent. Halo Fete, which is part of Halo Pub makes cakes other ice cream delights has a "Fetewich" that is a chocolate chip cookie and chocolate ice cream, it tastes beyond delicious! Skip the other ice cream shops in Princeton but do not skip Halo Pub!

“Exquisite Ice Cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014 via mobile

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 at the connected cake shop is average though.

“Great Ice cream.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

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.
