“Favorite Family Spot”

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!"

We stopped in for lunch. The ambience is reminiscent of an old fashioned soda fountain, counter and all. The service was prompt and pleasant. My husband and I both ordered the hot dog (many variations of the all beef dog). I ended up not feeling well part way through the meal and did not finish. My husband was fine, so maybe it was something I ate elsewhere, but wouldn't go back.

Brings you back to high school and your first girlfreind. The shakes are thick and the ice cream very creamy

This is just a charming ice cream parlor with counter and table service, just like it never left the 50's. Except they do have low-fat/low-sugar options, so progress has been made. Staff were very friendly.
