The Scoop

Thomas’ Ice Cream Cafe opened in Hoboken in 2019 and serves a variety of artisanal treats. Everything is made from scratch and the experienced team behind Thomas’ has worked in the food industry for over a decade. Guests can even watch them making the ice cream behind the counter while perusing the flavor options.

There’s some indoor seating but when the weather’s nice it’s hard to beat a spot outside. Snag one of the sidewalk tables for some prime people-watching with your scoops. Pets are welcome to tag along, too.

The shop is located at 214 Jefferson Street in Hoboken and is a quick walk from the 2nd Street Light Rail Station. It opens at 1PM every day, and closes at 10PM Sunday through Thursday and at 11PM on Friday and Saturday. 

Ice Cream Options

Thomas prides itself on serving homemade ice cream and the flavors range from classics like chocolate and pistachio to some more unique offerings like coffee Oreo and banana. Scoops can be enjoyed in a cup or cone plus toppings like sprinkles and gummy bears are available for an extra-special treat.

Kiddie cups are on the menu for little ones but adults can order this size, too. We recently had a kiddie scoop and it was plenty for an after-dinner treat.

Scoops aren’t the only thing you’ll find here. Thomas’ also creates custom cakes that come with your choice of any two ice cream flavors along with fudge and “crunchies.”
