Whimsical and quaint

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!

A great place to get a snack or a quick lunch. I had the chicken salad sandwich and it was on good bread with an ample amount of tasty chicken salad. They also have ice cream and other sweets here. It is not large and there are 3 tables in the hall outside you can sit and eat at. A... More

I was surprised that a single scoop of ice cream was more than $6.00. It was more expensive than a single scoop of the most delicious gelato in the USA at the Bellagio in Las Vegas.
