1st stop on our "tour" of Princeton area ice cream shops. Tons of flavors, decent size scoops, good service. Seating available at Halo Fete attached or on benches outside.

I went by this store yesterday to buy a birthday cake for mom. The employee was very polite but firmly let me know the owners did not allow neither him nor anyone else currently present in the establishment to write anything on the cake. I...even asked to buy chocolate fudge or icing and write on it myself. The employee politely apologized saying he was not allowed to do so by the owners. Negative customer experience indeed. This will definitely inform my future purchases from this establishment. Hope this helps!More

Halo Pub has some wonderful ice cream. In warm weather there can be a bit of a line. But, it's it's well worth the wait.

Not my favorite place for tasty ice cream but it is a Princeton staple and very popular place. Service staff is always friendly, courteous and fast. Comfortable place to sit and enjoy the downtown area.

Made our annual pilgramage to Halo Pub while walking Princeton's Nassau Square. Ordered a chocolate milkshake. Still one of the best anywhere. Highly recommend their ice cream and milkshakes for taste and value. Very quaint decor.

I love so many of their ice creams but my favorite treat came from an employee suggestion. He said I should try my coffee chip milkshake made with Halo Farm chocolate milk - DIVINELY ADDICTING - and the people always friendly.

The ice cream at Halo is like nothing most of us have experienced. They have a small leaflet that explains how they make there ice cream and how it varies from most ice cream production. I must say it makes you hesitant to put in...the typical commercial kinds. The dairies they use are local. The make it in small batches. There are no artificial ingredients, flavors or preservatives, no artificial colors, and the list goes on. While there a little boy walked up to his mom and held out his ice cream cone to say he hadn't gotten the mint chocolate chip he asked for. She said yes you did. He said but "it's not green!" It's like eating a different food - it's not full of fake sugars, contains less water and has very little air and doesn't melt quickly. After you finish a couple of scoops, you feel like you've eaten something that satisfies your hunger. Highly recommend you try it but beware you may find it tough to go back to everyday ice cream.More

You cannot visit PRINCETON and not have ice cream at Halo Pub. It is truly a PRINCETON landmark and you will see what I mean as the no matter when you go the line extends out on the street. Each and every flavor is delicious...and more importantly it is reasonable priced. They do offer half scoops which is more like a scoop and enough to satisfy your craving.More

There is metered street parking which is frequently at a premium, however there is a metered lot at the end of the block and almost directly beside Halo Pub is a paid parking garage.
