The Ice Cream Parlor in downtown Southern Pines is one of my favorite lunch spots. Yes, they have ice cream-but they have so much more. I think that Anthony makes the best chicken salad in town (as a matter of fact, I don’t order it anywhere else). Their menu has many sandwiches, a daily soup, and specials every day. The restaurant is always buzzing with activity. Spending a day in downtown Southern Pines is not complete without stopping in and grabbing a bite!
