Had lunch and ice cream here, it was a very nice. It is a very cute, quaint ice cream parlor with a very nice, decent size lunch menu. I was very impressed. My BLT was delicious with the perfect amount of bacon and cooked just right. The prices are reasonable and it is a fun place to eat and cool... More

We stumbled upon Southern Sweets while walking around Beaufort on an unseasonably hot day. We wanted a reasonably priced lunch and some relief from the heat so we decided to give it a try. We were both really pleased with our choices! I had a grilled Muffeleta and the olive salad (more like a pesto) gave it a wonderful flavor.... More

If what you are looking for is a friendly lunch and/or some great ice cream, this place is great. Good variety of sandwiches and loads of ice cream flavors. I had lunch there twice recently and was very pleased.

Fresh made sandwiches, we had the reuben and muffalatta and they were tasty and filling. To top it off they have a wide selection of ice cream flavors to choose from all while you relax and cool off in their parlor. The gals are friendly and the 60s music will take you back in memories.

Great ice cream selections. My husband enjoyed the Hot apple pie sundae. I enjoyed the praline and cream. Excellent service. Can't wait to try some of their sandwiches next trip

Stopped in for a quick desert after dinner at a nearby restaurant. Small place with a pleasing interior. Was a busy Saturday evening so limited staff seemed a bit rushed but was handling it well. Family enjoyed their ice cream and my milk shake was good too.

We were visiting Beaufort for military graduation and stopped here at the end of the day. The atmosphere is really cute and the ice cream was delicious. Great way to end the day. Would definitely recommend and revisit if we were there again.

Great little place to grab a treat. When ever my wife and I are downtown, this is the first place I stop to grab a soda before we start walking around downtown, and the last place to pick up an ice cream cone for the drive home.

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!"
