While one would expect this review to be about the ice cream, it's the small cupcakes that really stand out! Of course, the ice cream and sorbet is excellent and worth the wait in line, but those small cupcakes are better than any dedicated cupcake/baked-goods store!

Their ice cream is delicious! It's almost always packed, even in the snow! Perfect place to go on a date or with your family! Just know there isn't any seating inside.

The Bent Spoon is a Princeton must see. The flavors of ice cream and desserts will please your paler. The wait can be sooo long. But it's worth it. The only thing is that the servings are small. The price is quite costly for ice cream but your taste buds will love you for it. Stop by like I do... More

This is one of the better ice cream places in the state. This isn't your run of the mill ice cream place. They have a lot of unique flavors and the few that I have tried are exceptional.

In the heart of Palmer Square, this little shop of delicious treats is well worth the wait. All icecream, gelato and sorbetto is hpme mafe using fresh ingredients. The everchanging menu of flavors makes it an adventure every time you cisit. Don't worry though, you can always have a taste before you buy.

We went there for dessert after dinner in Princeton. The line was long despite the cool weather. Once we are inside it was warm and cozy. It is a very small place and all the seats were occupied. The line moved slower when someone at the front asked to try different flavors. The line moved quickly if someone at the... More

The place was recommended by some friends and i am happy we tried it. The ice cream tastes so good and natural. They have a wide variety of flavors (fruits, chocolate, vanilla, mixes of flavors...). We had a mix of tastes and we were all happy. The mango tastes as if you are eating a real mango and the berries... More

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!
