“I want ice cream”

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!"

Cute shop, very friendly and helpful. Huge menu. Caters to everyone's ice cream desires. Even offers a sundae for dogs. If you like ice cream you need to stop and check it out.

They had a great and very large selection of ice cream flavors, sundaes, and shakes!! However prices are extremely high! Ice cream was good but not worth the price.

We visited the shop because we were looking for pralines but they were also out of them :-(

They looked on the internet to find some place where we could purchase pralines. They finally found a place in Hilton Head, called and asked them set aside some for us. They were all sooo very nice and we didn’t ask them to do any of this for us. They actually searched for 15-20mins.

We decided to grab a late lunch there because it was so cute and they were so nice. I had a hotdog w/ Kraut which I was shocked that a southern establishment would have kraut. The hotdog was basic but the excellent rating is given because of their very good customer service and that they had the hotdog w/kraut.

There were others that came into the shop for ice cream and the scoops are HUGE! Too half scoops looked like two – three full scoops. We will come back for pralines and ice cream the next time we visit Beaufort!

Looking for southern charm, lots of ice cream and great customer service stop in and take a refreshing break!

We visited here after dinner for a little ice cream dessert. We had the Hunting Island Sundae and the Brownie Sundae. Both were very tasty.

They served their ice cream sundaes in styrofoam cups, which made it VERY difficult to eat. I would suggest using better bowls for their sundaes. Also, their items were a little overpriced in my opinion.
