Great spot for lunch!

We stopped here for soup and a sandwich for lunch. The sandwiches were fresh and had generous fillings and the cup of chicken soup was lovely. We had milk shakes and you could choose any flavour of ice cream as the basis for your shake. Tables on the street meant you could enjoy lunch as the world... read more

A favorite place for locals to have a good reasonably priced lunch...tasty sandwiches, and lots of ice cream selections. I like the barbecue sandwich (eastern NC style). The specials are almost always creative and yummy.

Great locally owned little lunch and early casual dinner spot, complete w fresh ice cream. Lots of dishes are homemade (chili, chicken salad) and the hot dogs are the best!!, (all beef) !!! Casual outside dining available too, weather permitting.

Hershey Ice Cream, reminds me of home. I love the chicken salad sandwich and fries. This is a nice family restaurant where you can have a great lunch, milkshake and ice cream at a good price.

The Ice-Cream Parlor in downtown Southern Pines is a homey, friendly local spot for excellent ice cream- and a whole lot more! The menu features terrific sandwiches- the best chicken salad- , burgers are at the top of my favorites as well as the hot dog. They have daily specials and seasonal ice cream that make for a special visit.... More

My children and now grands love this little eatery. My older grandson often picks this as the place for lunch after church when it's his turn to select. Wonderful chicken salad, burgers and of course the ice cream.

The Ice Cream Parlor had the tastiest homemade chocolate ice cream I've ever had. I savored every bite and when I was done, I knew I had to come back the next night, which I did. Unfortunately, they had run out of the chocolate. I tried the homemade vanilla. It, too, was delicious, but nothing will ever top the chocolate.

The homemade flavors are excellent. I had the strawberry on a waffle cone. Ate it while walking and not one bit of it had time to melt because I'm a pig.

If you like ice cream, this is the place for you. We sampled various flavours during our 5 day stay in Southern Pines. It is on the corner of NW Broad near the Amtrak Station. Walking along Broad Street with an ice cream in hand must be a Southern Pine tradition. We saw many other kindred souls.
