My kids and I have loved this place for 25 years

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.

it's the center of downtown life, in many ways - you can grab a veggie burger and a milkshake here - you will not be disappointed

If you grew up here, you know all about The Ice Cream Parlor. Most of us have been going here since we were children & now take our own children to enjoy this Southern Pines classic. The ice cream, shakes, and fresh squeezed lemon or orangeade are always wonderful, but there is so much more to enjoy here. Their menu... More

Bought a lemonade, a milkshake, and a kids ice cream for less than seven dollars. Everything was great and we ate all of it. Would be great if they started serving healthier options like fresh fruit smoothies.

When you want a casual meal, try the Ice Cream Parlor instead of a chain. The food is good and freshly prepared and you will find interesting options such as a grilled veggie wrap. The hot dogs with slaw are excellent. Ice cream is, of course, delicious. Service is always friendly. I happen to know that this business is good... More

I've been here twice already since moving to the area last month. It's a really cute place to get some ice cream and walk around downtown Southern Pines. We also had lunch here. My daughter had a turkey sandwich, I had the egg salad sandwich and my son had a chili dog. The sandwiches were okay. We ordered them with... More
