Amazing ice cream. Not too sweet and right size portions. This place is part of the Beaufort experience you shouldn't miss. Take a few minutes out from wandering the delightful Beaufort Streets and treat yourself to a taste of how things used to be. Great coffee and friendly service too.

You will do yourself a disservice if you like ice cream and do not stop here and try it. Truly a great ice cream experience!

Interesting 1950's type diner. Good sandwich menu - the chili cheese dogs are great and a bargain. About 30 flavors of Blue Bell ice cream in cones or sundaes. Clerks are so gracious.

we have been known to take the slow road north JUST to go through Beaufort so that we can stop at Southern Sweets. They have an amazing variety of ice cream flavors, and every one we have tried has been wonderful. And, should you be really in the mood for a treat- go for one of their specialty sundaes. They...

Hot fudge chocolate brownie ice cream sundae with whipped cream. Need I say more? You can select which flavor of ice cream (chocolate for me, thank you) which is then placed onto a really delicious brownie, topped with rich hot fudge and whipped cream. Wow! The servers were all top notch too. Good thing I don't live close!

We love to stop at Southern Sweets each time we visit Beaufort. Their ice cream is outstanding with a very nice selection to choose from! The staff is very friendly and the shop is reminiscent of an old ice cream parlor. We love it!

As always, our reviews are (solely) based on our personal tastes/experiences and are never meant to persuade/dissuade anyone from patronizing a business. While attending a recent festival in the charming city of Beaufort, SC, my old "sweet-tooth" kicked in.......just had to have some Ice Cream.

We love Southern Sweets. Great ice cream served in a way that takes you back to your childhood. Friends at first sight. You can tell they want you to enjoy yourself. They make sure that every one of you is taken care of every time. Have a handmade sundae served in a glass flute at the counter. It is a... More
