Whenever we visit Southwold, an ice cream from Beaches and Cream is a must. Huge range to choose from, I recommend rum and raisin, plenty of other treats for those not lovers of ice cream. Friendly and helpful staff.

Do not miss the chance to visit especially if you like ice cream. Everyone is great, helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The rum and raisin equivalent is astounding.

If you've got a sweet tooth and want some sweets that come from the USA then this is the place to make a visit. Also a good selection of ice creams to enjoy on a nice hot day whilst taking in the sea views.

Although we're not a restaurant as such, we do have a couple of tables at which you can enjoy a scoop or two of delicious ice cream and a peruse of our selection of goodies!! We have one of the largest selection of imported goodies in the area from America, Australia and New Zealand so if it's Tim Tams, Lucky Charms or Jelly Belly Beans you'll know where to come! :) Our ice cream is either local or Italian and we always have a choice of at least 15 flavours :) If it's a souvenir you're after, we've got that covered too, see you soon!
