Now this is real ice cream. So many flavors and so many options. So good to get a cup or cone and take a long walk around Princeton.

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!
