“Loved this place!”

Southern Sweets Ice Cream Parlor & Sandwich Shop
Ranked #1 of 8 Dessert in Beaufort
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: $2 - $10
Description: Southern Sweets Ice Cream Parlor & Sandwich Shop is a hidden treasure in the downtown Beaufort Historic area. Not a place you want to miss when visiting Beaufort. Located in the Old Bay Marketplace (behind Lulu Burgess). Step back into the 50's with all your ice cream favorites. The full sandwich menu offers some southern classics that are sure to please. The hot dog menu is so much fun with an Elvis dog, Cha Cha dog, and Reuben dog, just to name a few. Ice Cream comes from a family owned dairy (cannot be bought in a store). Everything about Southern Sweets is simply "Southern Sweets!"

Terrific sandwiches, great hotdogs and amazing ice cream - but best of all was the service. Thank you so much, ladies!

Yummy ice cream but also Ms. Marilyn's lunches are scrumptious! Located right off Bay Street in the Old Bay Marketplace (next to my fave shopping, LULU BURGESS), it's perfect for a quick cold snack or dining. The dreamcicle shake is my go-to refresher but their brownie sundae is something to write home about!!!

We instantly fell in love when we walked into this adorable 50's style ice cream parlor, but were quickly disappointed when not one person greeted us and 3 people were just standing behind the counter and we were the only ones there! We were going on and on about how cute the place was and how good the menu looked and the teenager behind the counter just rolled her eyes at us. And I'm pretty sure the lady next to her was the owner; she never said one word to us. The food was pretty good and our sundae was ok. It was such a great looking place, I would have expected so much more and maybe a smile would have been good!

The restaurant itself is cute as can be, darling 50's diner style. There is a wide range of food and dessert items, we had a tuna melt, turkey sandwhich, bbq dog, and a s'mores sundae. It was very good, though we were so excited to try this place, the waitresses weren't so excited to see us. They weren't rude, but they certainly weren't outgoing, welcoming, or had any 50's waitress charm.
