Very friendly stop for scrumptious ice cream!

Delightfully surprised that they carry sugar-free ice cream. Therefore our friends were all able to have ice cream

While they do not make their own ice cream they do serve excellent ice cream. They always have a large selection and will serve it up any way requested. The staff is friendly and the service is excellent.

Great great ice-cream in an old fashioned parlor setting. Our family had a great time here. The ice cream is very creamy and great. The brownies are very nice too. Very large portions so be prepared.

We have not sampled the lunch fare but have had the ice cream on two occasion, one week apart. The first visit consisted of me killing time while my wife shopped. I ordered two scoops on the cake cone and really did hurt myself attempting to finish it. Two scoops apparently is way too much for the average guy. Our... More

Beaufort has a very pleasant Main Street where there is a small arcade of shops one of which is Southern Sweets. They provided a very good hot dog followed by a brownie sundae (see photo).

Sweet treats are great, as long as it's not burning a hole in your wallet! Yikes! I love the fact that they do serve sweet treats for pups though, that is awesome. And a tall glass of ice cold water is offered to wash the sugar down your food tunnel.
