Luckily, there are some delectable dessert shops located right near our most popular Narragansett beach house rentals!

Nana’s Ice Cream

ice cream cone

Nana’s Ice Cream has been a local favorite in Narragansett since 1985, and today, they run three successful locations right here in town! When you’re in the mood for a cold treat to satisfy your sweet tooth, this is the ultimate place to come; if they don’t have a flavor, it doesn’t exist! They’ve got tons of selections of ice cream, frozen yogurt, vegan and dairy free selections, gelato, and soft serve. Plus, you can get your treat in whatever kind of cone you please, and you can add whatever toppings you like! Everyone in your group can completely customize their dessert at Nana’s.

Coastal Crepes

Want something a bit more out of the box but still just as satisfying as any other dessert? Check out Coastal Crepes. This dessert shop serves savory selections, too, but the sweet crepes are really where it’s at. Go for a simple variety like cinnamon or sugar and lemon, try “The Classic” with Nutella, strawberries, and bananas, or go crazy with the “Chunky Monkey” or “S’mores.” You can even pick any ingredients you like to make your own combination! 


Aunt Carrie’s

While Aunt Carrie’s has an incredible seafood restaurant, their ice cream shop is the perfect place to go when your sweet tooth kicks in. Of course, you can get a classic flavor like mint chocolate chip or rum raisin, but they also offer unique choices like raspberry cheesecake, white chocolate chip, and dinosaur crunch! If you’re really feeling adventurous, try one of their Wicked Ice Cream Sundaes! While you’re there, you can also check out their handmade jewelry, souvenir t-shirts, and delicious salt water taffy.

Sweet Cakes


At Sweet Cakes, you can rest assured that you’re always getting a delicious dessert made with wholesome, natural ingredients. They’ve got every kind of cake you could imagine, from carrot cake to tiramisu to Very Vanilla, Southern red velvet, and so much more! Every cake is beautifully decorated, and if you’re in town for a special occasion, they can make a custom piece just for your celebration. It’s worth mentioning that they do also serve sandwiches and soups around lunchtime!

The Sweet Spot

The name of this eatery really says it all. If it’s sweet, they’ve got it here! Like many of the other spots on this list, they’ve got a whole menu full of delicious ice cream selections, but the sweets don’t stop there. You can also try homemade yogurt flavors like mint chip or mud pie, as well as a huge variety of baked goods like cookies, brownies, muffins, cinnamon buns, and more! Everything that comes out of this bakery is totally homemade, and the love in every dish definitely shows.
