Quaint, very near the beach. Seems to close somewhat capriciously, get there before 7 during the week. Good ice cream!

A great old fashion ice cream store a short walk from the beach. My grandchildren consider a trip to beach incomplete unless we stop for ice cream at Souza's!!

old fashion ice cream store. A favorite (and must stop!) place for my grandkids after or during a day at the beach or a visit to see me always includes a stop here. Even when there's a line, it moves quickly.

I love Souza's Ice Cream! There freshly made cones are the best, and the ice cream is just perfect. The staff is always friendly, and the store is very clean.

Love this place. Small and quaint, the service is great and the waffle cones are very good. The choices are limited to about 16 flavors but they cover the bases and are good. Great place to take the kids
