unusual flavors and good creaminess. Not the best ever, but really good, and much better than dessert at some of the nearby restaurants.

Yey! The weather is getting warmer and I scream for ice cream! In Princeton, my favorite place to go is the Bent Spoon in Palmer Square; its ever-changing flavors of artisan ice cream are very appealing and the quality of the ice cream a delight!...More

Went on an unusually hot day in May. Even though lines were long, they move fast and staff are still courteous and friendly!

I didn't know dairy free ice cream could taste this good! The double dark chocolate sorbet tasted like the creamiest real ice cream ever! I loved this place. I wish we had one in the south. Cash only!!

All I can say is that The Bent Spoon has the most delicious ice cream! We enjoyed evry bite. I had the salted caramel and the chocolate covered matzo treats. My husband had a hazelnut shake. So yummy!!

It is certainly a nice ice cream parlor, but you will be disappointed if you think it is going to be the best ice cream of your life. The space is terrible, just 2 tables. The lines are terrible at peak time

In the summer, if you are willing to wait in the line that extends out the door and down the block, you will be rewarded with flavors you could not dream of. We have been a fan of The Bent Spoon since it opened--decades ago!
