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!

This was the perfect wrap up to our families outing and dinner. The ice cream tastes just like homemade should. Fresh and full of flavor. Highly recommend stopping in if you are downtown.

We found this place while wandering around after I left the other ice cream place disappointed when they were out of my favorite ice cream. The shop is small and inside a pedestrian arcade off the main drag. I really liked the 1950s theme and...More

My entire family loves eating lunch here as their lunch menu is very good and the ice cream is wonderful. We eat here every time we're in Beaufort! The pimento cheese sandwich was my favorite!

Stopped by for a quick lunch and loved the olde worlde charm of this Ice Cream Parlour. The servers were friendly and the array of merchandise was neverending.

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!"
