Had to wait on a long line to get in so we figured it must be good. Ice cream was excellent especially with the Nutella hot topping. I a double scoop which was large. Prices are reasonable.

Thomas sweet never disappoints ! We must have gone through ( as a family ) most of the items in the menu right from the icecream to the yogurt and blend ins . I cannot point out and say one is better than the other or that I don't like a particular flavor :). This place is exactly what you... More

When driving in different areas we ALWAYS check out the local ice cream shops. Small shop in the middle of town, quaint interior, the Ice Cream was delicious, we had Raspberry, Strawberry, and a Salted Caramel cup. ALL WERE OUTSTANDING!

Folks in Princeton told me that Edison once had ice cream here. They even have a photo of him hanging the wall, but there is no way to verify. It's a nice little place with a great variety of ice cream flavours. Cozy set up with limited seats. But it is a small business, so no complains. The ice cream... More

We always go to Thomas Sweets when we come to visit family from the UK. A proper old school ice cream parlour with a wide range of flavours. This is a perfect way to cool down on a hot Princeton day.

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
