We have been coming here for 25 years because we love the chocolate chip cookie ice cream. It is not cookie dough, but a brown sugar flavored ice cream with tons of dark chocolate chips. Yum!,,,

Perhaps the ice cream is good (don't know, not an ice cream eater) but the cappuccino is the worst my friends and I have ever had. I've been there a few times so this is not a one-off problem. Wish they would improve the ambiance of the Skillman store since there is none. This is the only coffee and ice... More

Great ice cream. Lots of options to create your own masterpiece. Small shop but nice tables outside so you can enjoy your dessert.

The ice cream at Thomas Sweet's is just downright delicious. I had a child's size peanut butter Oreo sugar cone - yum, yum! My daughter had a double scoop coffee and mint chip that was huge and yummy. In addition to ice cream they offer Blend-Ins where you pick your ice cream and candy and they put it through a... More

I have been frequenting Thomas Sweet regularly since my college days, many moons ago, when there used to be an additional Thomas Sweet ice cream shop location in Palmer Square. Our family now visits the Montgomery location more than the Princeton location, but we still visit regularly and never pass up a delicious blend-in!

Had the chocolate shake which was made with milk and their ice cream only. Quite good. Never get one from a soft ice cream mixture. Wife had mint chocolate chip. Place is not the most cleanliness but it will do for a quick treat.

The Midnight Jersey Shore.. What a treat. Great ice cream. Creamy, sweet, chunky.. Totally not good for you, but that's how good ice cream should be!

Thomas Sweet is a long-standing, highly beloved a Rat of Princeton. However, I believe that most of this love comes from nostalgia, not actually from the quality of the products sold. The ice cream tastes extremely generic, and is shoved full of toppings to make up for this. The only thing I would highly recommend here is the hot fudge,... More
