Great ice cream

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

This shop is tucked into a corner of The Santuary. It is very cute and the staff is very pleasant. The ice cream is quite good but pricey.

Ok selection of ice creams, but pretty pricey for one scoop. We discovered The Ice Cream Boat at Bohicket Marina later on and it's much better!

Cute little ice cream and candy shop. I just happens to hear on the in-room television channel that they also have breakfast. I wish we'd known sooner. It was nice being able to just grab a breakfast sandwich at beaches and cream after several days of buffets at Jasmine Porch.

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.

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
