Amazing ice cream!

The ice cream here is amazing and the portion size is big. It's a little expensive but you get what you pay for! :) The staff working was very friendly as well!

The female staff that we encountered here was downright rude. Maybe she was having a bad day but there is never a reason to treat people that way....

Over the years, this quaint little shop has continued to add to its range of offerings. We have stayed in numerous luxury hotels that do not have good options if you just want a quick snack or to-go meal. This may be the best we've seen. For breakfast, the vegetarian sandwich on wheat toast is very tasty - egg whites,... More

Strawberry Banana smoothie every morning and set by the pool to watch the sun rise over the Atlantic Ocean. Take a morning dip in the pool or the ocean and walk or ride a bike on the packed sand for miles.

This little ice cream shop spells whimsy and sweet all the way. The window display is always enticing and once you go inside, it's all about ice cream, cookies, candy ... sweets for the kids. One step in Beaches and Cream brings me back to my childhood.

The caramel ice cream with the chocolate caramel filled turtles in it - absolutely all you need to know.

Beaches and Cream sells snacks, drinks, pastries and, of course, ice cream. It's a nice resource for when you just want "a little something". If I have one quibble, it's that the physical space is just too small. This was not a big problem at this time of year, but during our last visit in July, it was simply too... More

Great little spot inside the Sanctuary Hotel where you can grab a light bite such as ice cream, bagel, candy, muffins etc.

Beaches and Cream is the most convenient option for people staying at the Sanctuary who don't want to leave the property for a quick lunch. I had the chicken salad sandwich and it was delicious, but it was definitely overpriced. In addition, the woman working was not very nice which made it a little unpleasant to give them business.

While one would think it's only for ice cream, they have delicious breakfast & lunch sandwiches to go. Perfect for the beach!
