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!"

Counter service, with old fashioned charm. Doesn't anyone make ice cream sodas anymore? There are several flavors of what appear to be home made pralines. Ice cream cone was good. It is a handy place from the harbor front where the carriage rides and boat tours begin.

We had a nice sandwich, and splurged on an ice creme for desert. The place is incredibly clean and fresh feeling. Locals and tourists seem to enjoy it. It has a nice old fashion counter with small tables about. Everything is freshly made and there is plenty to choose from.

Can you all open a location in my hometown? Your vanilla milkshake was the BESTTT! I wanted to come back for another before leaving town.

We stopped in for lunch and had good sandwiches and soups. The service is friendly and the traditional counter gives the place the feel of an old-fashioned soda fountain. Prices are reasonable and the location is convenient to the historic district and many other attractions.

We stopped by here after a "not so good" lunch at another restaurant and it was the highlight of our afternoon. The ice cream was outstanding and two scoops were huge! We had them in a waffle cone and were pleased with the service (excellent) and the price of the cones. We will be back to try more flavors!!!!
