Kilwins comes to town

Kilwins, a purveyor of chocolates, ice cream, and confections, is opening soon at 16 Witherspoon Street. The space, which was most recently Lisa Jones, the clothing and accessories store, has been vacant for more than a year.

Found in 1947, Kilwins now has franchises in 25 states. The Princeton location will be the fifth in New Jersey. The Princeton store is operated by Taylor Frye and will be open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. More information: or

Winberie’s to reopen

Winberie’s Restaurant & Bar in Princeton was scheduled to reopen on Wednesday, March 27, after a six-week renovation to update the dining room and bar.

“Maintaining the restaurant’s overall feel was critical during the remodeling process,” general manager, Robert Haynes said in a statement. “Our guests will see we’ve accomplished that goal and notice new wooden floors and upholstered seating that will take dining with us to a new level.”

The restaurant will still offer many of the same menu items — traditional and contemporary versions of American comfort foods — with new dinner entrees added to the menu. The bar will have 23 rotating taps and a new happy hour menu.
