Best Black Cherry Ice cream!

Great ice Cream and such a friendly staff! Huge chunks of cherries in the cherry ice cream and my daughter's cookie dough ice cream had generous pieces of cookie dough in it. nice inside like sitting at a old ice cream parlor.

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). Which meant I had to sit quite quietly for the rest of the afternoon. Very high standard of food here and useful if you just... More

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.

Man, I came here because I love ice cream... :) I was soooo not disappointed. I got one scoop of the mint chocolate chip just because we just ate dinner and I had no room for the many specialty sundaes. The one scoop was awesome. The ice cream was super creamy. I love how they get their ice cream from... More

Ice cream on one end of the store, and sandwiches, gourmet items etc, on the other. The ice cream was excellent with a choice of cones. The scoop was a good size at a fair price. Would return, Hope this helps.

My family stopped in after dinner, waiting for the 4th of July rain to stop, and it was the best idea of the night. The ice cream was delicious and the girls behind the counter could not have been more pleasant. My daughters loved the ice cream counter and chairs where they could enjoy their cotton candy ice cream. We... More

We had some really good ice cream, and they've earned their high TA ranking. The Hunting Beach Sea Turtle Sundae was particularly good.

We were at Hilton Head for vacation, but had decided to take a day trip into Beaufort, South Carolina. We had taken a tour of Kazoobie Kazoos, and we got to make our own. We chose bugle horns and trumpet ends. The kids loved it. After a picnic in the park, we were ready for dessert. Southern Sweets was perfect.... More

It was air conditioned. A nice place to get out of the heat and enjoy some great ice cream. They also offer a light lunch. Personnel are very nice and also very efficient. No real waiting. Tables are available to rest from shopping.
