We googled looking for an ice cream spot while traveling with family - and were so glad we did. I thought the portion sizes were just right and the flavors were great. I especially liked the mango.

The absolute best treat in Princeton! They use local growers whenever possible, and they have a doggie bowl for water outside the door!

Good place offering variety of fresh ice-creams in the heart of Princeton down-town. The place is small with huge demand for their ice-creams so be prepared to stand in long lines during summer months !!

overpriced often rated as best ice cream in the area, but the slow service and high price mean that I'd rather go elsewhere

These folks have done a great job bringing fun, unique desserts to a Princeton. Think pumpkin, corn, in season. Never the same offerings. They also have fantastic cupcakes. Highly recommended.

They have the most amazing flavors, very different than any other ice creamery I have ever been to. One of the flavors, chocolate chile, is my favorite. It has just the right sweetness and spice. They also have many sorbets to choose from. It is pricey.

This is a little ice cream parlor that serves organic homemade ice cream, gelato, and sorbets. What was so fun were all the unique flavors. A must try when in Princeton.

There is so much that I love about this place that I hate what it's doing to my wallet! They have some rather intuitive flavors and it's always exciting to open that door and see what they'll have today. One of my favorites is the Earl Grey ice cream. One of my favorite types of tea turned into ice cream!... More

amazing ice cream, nothing like you've ever had! Homemade marshmallows that are incredible. Bur some and take them home and drizzle chocolate on them. Fantastic cupcakes too. The wait is worth it
