Located in a little convenience store at the intersection of Texas State Highway 105 and US Highway 290 on the west side of Brenham, Scoops serves nothing but Blue Bell Ice Creams. they often carry flavors you can’t readily find at the grocery store, too. It seems to be the ONLY place to get Blue Bell on Sunday. Scoops is open every day from 9:00 am – 10:00 pm.
This is a great place to make a pit stop when heading to Austin from Houston or Conroe, or the other way around, along the 105 route. Not only is there Blue Bell, but there is a full convenience store with fuel, and a little gift shop on the other end of the strip that carries a lovely assortment of things to please.
The indoor dining area seats about 30, and there are a couple of picnic tables outside as well. These tables are shared with the convenience store’s hot meal diners, so it’s not all ice cream.
Don’t try to park in front as it’s always crowded. Go on around the back and make the walk – it’s not far. There are some steps to climb, just so you know. Other walking access is up the driveway on a moderately steep slope.
This is one of those little discoveries that makes travel a joy. Stop on by and give them a try!
