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

This place has the most AMAZING selection of flavors in completely appropriate serving sizes. Artisan ice cream at its finest, The Bent Spoon has never disappointed. The flavors vary from sweet to savory with the ability to combine flavors in even a small size. It is cash only but the line out the door is worth the wait. There's a... More

Bent Spoon serves home made mostly locally sourced and organic ice cream that is a gourmet treat. Don't miss it. They have great other treats too but don't miss the ice cream or sorbet.

On a hot summer day nothing beats the Vanilla and Rhubarb ice cream, or may be Passion Fruit, or Avocado, or ... well not exactly sure when I should stop with the selection of flavors. Basically this is an incredible shop with huge selection of various ice creams and crowds to match the quality. When we got there the line... More

Came here just before we left Princeton, so glad we made the stop! This place was recommended to us and rightly so! With flavors such as paw paw, peach and raspberry, and a candied apple to die for, this place is normally packed. Delicious ice cream and something for everyone! Highly recommended!

This is a wonderful spot for delicious gelato, shakes, and baked goods. The line goes out the door but it's totally worth it!

Every time we go to a restaurant in Princeton we have to stop at the Bent Spoon for desert. There can be a long line but A) it moves quickly and B) it is worth it. Their flavors are unique and the staff is always friendly. I highly recommend stopping in if you are in the area.

it can get a bit crowded in this small place with a small seating area. Service is quick. many different unique flavors. Not the cheapest but I guess you pay a bit for quality stuff. Best to take your ice cream with you and walk around wonderful palmer square!
