Stopped here for a quick lunch; they have sandwiches in addition to the ice cream treats. Inside seating consists of a few tables and a long counter with stools. There are many sandwich offers on the menu, and we ordered a Southern Club sandwich to...More

Ice cream shop is a little hard to find but worth the effort. Large selection of flavors and friendly service. Also serves sandwiches. Enjoy.

We always go here when we visit Beaufort and you should not miss it if you like ice cream. The ice cream is made in house and their milkshakes are awesome. I highly recommend this place if you are in Beaufort.

This is a fabulous little ice cream parlor on Bay St. There are many different ice creams and other items available. All are very good and served with great humor by the staff. Well worth a visit.

We only had ice cream, not lunch. Counter service with a few tables, very informal. The ice cream is wonderful - many different flavors, and daily specialities. Loved the Sea Turtle especially! Be sure to stop on those hot summer days!

We stopped in after visiting the bookstore across from there. Mint chocolate was my husband's fave and my son shared the peanut butter brownie sundae using their new flavor of ice cream with peanut butter chips in it! Two Thumbs up!

Absolutely delicious ice-cream. My favorite is peach with fruit chunks in the icecream. Buy your cone and walk to the waterfront park to enjoy it!

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!"
