I love this place. It has a great hometown atmosphere and is a perfect stop during a stroll through downtown Southern Pines. Love the milkshakes, and the chicken salad is pretty good too.

From the delicious all beef hot dogs, to homemade chicken salad, the food here is tops. Friendly quick counter service, excellent shakes and ice cream cones finish it off. Specials change daily and are homemade and great. Great to catch before a movie, lunch or quick casual dinner!!! Just a Southern Pines tradition!!!

I popped in for an ice cream on a hot afternoon. The place was buzzing. with a short queue. The Ice Cream was excellent. The Cone was fresh and crispy. The blueberry ice cream was soft, not icy, full of flavor and creamy. Just the job. If you enjoy Ice cream this is the place to go if you are... More

First time at the Ice Cream Parlor. It was a beautiful day so we ate outside since we had our dog with us. They even have a water bowl for dogs to get a fresh drink. We had hot dogs, even ordered one for our dog and they were nice enough to cut it up for her. We didn't have... More

Went here for lunch. The food was great and reasonably priced. I had the special, a burger topped with bacon and Gouda, and it tasted great. Everyone enjoyed their food. Would definitely return!

They always have great ice cream and good food specials. It's walking distance from the library and a lot of great shops. It's a great place to be on Saturday afternoon. Everyone is always friendly and the food is always hot and good. Except the icecream. That's always tasty, fresh, and cold.

We stopped here for soup and a sandwich for lunch. The sandwiches were fresh and had generous fillings and the cup of chicken soup was lovely. We had milk shakes and you could choose any flavour of ice cream as the basis for your shake. Tables on the street meant you could enjoy lunch as the world passed you by.

A favorite place for locals to have a good reasonably priced lunch...tasty sandwiches, and lots of ice cream selections. I like the barbecue sandwich (eastern NC style). The specials are almost always creative and yummy.

Great locally owned little lunch and early casual dinner spot, complete w fresh ice cream. Lots of dishes are homemade (chili, chicken salad) and the hot dogs are the best!!, (all beef) !!! Casual outside dining available too, weather permitting.
