Tybee Island boasts an array of sweet delights around every corner. Whether you're looking to cool off with a scoop of ice cream or indulge in a savory pastry, these places are sure to appease your sweet tooth. 

Ice Cream from the Sugar Shack.


The Sugar Shack

To experience a true Tybee tradition, stop in for a scoop of premium ice cream from The Sugar Shack. This island staple has been serving visitors for over 30 years. Be sure to try their banana split or hand-dipped Jersey ice cream (we love the banana pudding flavor) to make your day on Tybee just a little sweeter. 


Cafe on 80

From baked goods and pastries to ice cream and doughnuts, the cozy Cafe on 80 has a little something for every palate. If your taste is for something cool and refreshing, order one of their ultimate milkshakes - you won't regret it!

CoCo's Sunset Grille

You may know Coco's Sunset Grille for their delicious seafood and handmade cocktails, but they are also known for their sweet dessert menu. Enjoy the exquisite sunset views while indulging in a piece of homemade key lime pie, turtle cheesecake or an island favorite - fried strawberries atop a bed of whipped cream.

Savannah Praline Company

An inviting aroma of sweet and savory treats fills this retro candy shop, making Savannah Praline Company utterly irresistible. Fill a bag with your favorite old school candies or sample a freshly-made praline, but make sure to save room for Dole Whip - a pineapple-flavored soft-serve frozen treat. 



After you've enjoyed the seafood and live music at Sting Ray's Seafood, pop in next door to their ice cream shop, Seaweeds. Not only will you immediately encounter a variety of delectable ice cream flavors, but you can also channel your inner child and order a snow cone! Need an energy boost? Coffee is the perfect pairing with dessert and Seaweeds serves espresso to put that pep back in your step. 

Dessert is the best part of every meal, and Tybee has all the right places to ensure you never have to go without.
