When I was a little girl growing up in Galveston Texas, my parents were known to gather up the neighborhood kids along with the Little League Baseball team and take us all to Star Dairy; a popular Soda Fountain in our town. Another special memory I have is of jumping into my Daddy’s car and heading to the Pier Drive-In for a frosted mug of Ice Cold Root Beer; the perfect delight for a hot Texas night.
These fond memories of family time and tradition are what brought me to create the Blue Owl Sweet Shoppe. Well, that and God. When the place next to our Blue Owl Restaurant and Bakery opened, I was presented with the opportunity to purchase the property. Right away I thought, “Absolutely not!” But, as I have learned, you never make a rash decision and prayer must always come into the equation. So I prayed. It came to me that I needed to create a special place where our precious customers, friends and family could gather and make their own Soda Fountain memories. As well, The Blue Owl Sweet Shoppe would be the perfect way to celebrate The Blue Owl’s 24th Anniversary. I thank God for this insight. And so, the Blue Owl Sweet Shoppe was born!
The original Blue Owl Sweet Shoppe is located right next to The Blue Owl Restaurant and Bakery in Kimmswick, Missouri. We love our Eggleston Room, which was named after my Mom and Dad. It is filled with family photos and memories galore. We offer traditional soda fountain treats along with some newer flavors and creations. We also have lattes, cookies and beautiful hand -made candies. Another Blue Owl Sweet Shoppe is located in Festus, Missouri, which features donuts and a café style lunch menu! This has become quite a popular spot for local business people to enjoy lunch during the week. If you visit on a weekend you are sure to see families with happy smiling ice cream loving kids! Yet another Blue Owl Sweet Shoppe can be found in House Springs, Missouri; featuring ice cream goodies, donuts, cookies, candies and more! Check out our menus here.
The Blue Owl Sweet Shoppes are perfect for birthday parties. We have a delicious selection of goodies to choose from for your celebration and you can also order one our specialty cakes; decorated to reflect the tastes and whims of the birthday boy or girl. Be sure to ask about our candy making classes and craft classes; these events are fun to offer to your birthday party guests, but they are also perfect for Boy or Girl Scout troops, home schoolers, summer camps or any student group.
I do hope that you come by to one of our locations, to share in tradition and create your own special memories; as I always say, “Dreams Really Do Come True.”
All My Love
