Went here to get some ice cream in the hot weather! We had 1 small cup each. One with caramalized white chocolate and milk chocolate and the other one with dark chocolate and vanilla salted caramel. Both were really delicious! :) Great service - even though you must expect to wait a bit, especially on a Saturday with nice weather!

Although pretty expensive, the Bent Spoon has very unique flavors and I love how soft the ice cream is (even though it is not soft serve). I have recommended this place to many friends and family members. Definitely stop in if you're visiting Princeton!

Have been there twice this summer and I haven't been disappointed with yummy treat that awaits. Very good flavor of the ice cream and the sorbet. However, it can be a little of a wait depending on the time of day. But it's definitely worth the wait!!

The quality of the ingredients and flavors at The Bent Spoon are incredible. You can tell the owners and staff take pride in their work. These treats are meant to be savored, not devoured. They serve the ice cream with a tiny spoon. At first try, you might think they are skimping on the spoon, but it's really due to... More

You know its a winner when the line is out the door! Lots of different flavors in this postage stamp of an ice cream shop. Even the workers are jammed. Chaos and amok should be the flavors. All told, right across the street from a park too good and too cute
