If you like rich, creamy, usually and yummy ice cream then this is the place for you. I promise you that you will have a tough time deciding which scoop of ice cream to get. So get more than one and who cares about the calories! Definitely our favorite place for ice cream and Sweet Treats in Highlands, NC has... More

I live local and this is my guilty pleasure. No one visits me without getting taken to Sweet Spot. Don't miss the hot fudge either.

Very good homemade ice cream and nice service. We had the chocolate mint, cookie dough, and LEMON RASPBERRY (wow!) We missed out the first night in town because of a late dinner. They close at 10 so get there before!

We LOVE Sweet Spot! The owners are always smiling and welcoming of each customer and always creative with amazing flavors. The small town feel is evident in Sweet Spot, as the family owned ice cream shop LOVES to see families coming back again and again to try Melissa's newest creations! When you stop in, be sure and ask if there's... More

We eat at Bellini's frequently but never really noticed the Sweet Spot next door until a friend mentioned the place. The two flavors of ice cream that we tried were very good (chocolate rum truffle and trash can). I can see why one reviewer said that the place could use an update but it was clean and the staff was... More

This place has delish Ice cream but the little gal behind the counter was not so sweet. Not to mention this shop needs some updating. I enjoyed my ice cream walking around town instead of having a seat inside. I'll try other spots before returning here again in the future.

This is the owner and I want to first apologize for the little gal behind the counter, thank you for bringing this to our attention. I am so glad you enjoyed our ice cream and we would love for you to come back. I want to personally take care of the employee who did not give great customer service. Please... More

My family enjoys our visits to the Sweet Spots, especially my two grandsons. The ice cream is to die for. I have never had any I didn't like. My favorite is chocolate salted Carmel. Chocolate with sprinkles. The Staff is always very helpful and friendly. This is a must stop.
