Sugar Shack- Step back in time to the 1950’s and take your date out to a good old fashion ice cream parlor! The Sugar Shack (& Soda Pops next door) is the “Purveyor & Sparker of Memories”. They aren’t just an ice cream parlor where you can get a banana split, ice-cream sandwich, hand dipped cone, fizzy floats or frothy shake. They are truly a sweet shop! They serve baked fresh daily homemade cookies, retro bottled sodas, snuggly hot cocoa and coffee and have a full “candy bar”. Don’t miss out on the Shack Parlor in the back where there are all sorts of fun retro games to play. This space can be rented out for parties and special events. Such a cute birthday party idea!

Brownie Cheesecake, Ginger Pear, Cookie Dough, Boston Cream, Cookies & Cream, Hummingbird, Salted Caramel, Coconut, Crème Brulee’, Italian Cream, Chocolate HoHo, Cinna-Swirl, German Chocolate, Banana Nut, Mocha Latte, Texas Sheet Cake, Banana Pudding, Tiramisu, Piccollage. In addition to the above listed weekly specials, she carries Vanilla, Chocolate (any combination) & Red Velvet with Cream cheese icing every day for the traditionalists! News since the initial blog post: Sugar Belles will be taking their show on the road and will hit the streets soon in their new mobile bakery
Kelani Yogurt- Good news, frozen yogurt is good for you and yummy too! Kelani is a self-serve frozen yogurt joint in downtown Boerne. They boast 100+ toppings including fresh fruit, candy, nuts and SOOO much more. There is almost an infinite number of treat combinations that you can make here. Not in a fro-yo kind of mood? No worries, they now offer hot and cold espresso drinks including blended frappé's and smoothies and shakes that will make you wonder why you would ever drink a full fat, twice the sugar ice cream shake again!! Most flavors are Gluten Free, all are WITHOUT high fructose corn syrup... plus highest levels of probiotics around.
Bumdoodlers/Geri’s Pies- If you want it by the slice or NEED a whole pie to get you through the day mosey over to Bum’s. Geri’s Pies is located inside this local favorite eatery and it’s an indulgent force to be reckoned with! Cheesecake, fruit pies, cream pies, meringue pies -- oh my! When you order up a slice to eat in house it’s generous enough to share (if you so choose) and will leave a lasting impression that will beckon you back again on your next trip to town. Let’s just say both “cakes” at my wedding were from Geri’s Pies and there was no shopping around when making the decision.
Bear Moon Bakery- A favorite stop for locals and visitors alike! In addition to being famous for their breakfast offerings and lunch menu, their sweets counter dazzles the eyes of children of all ages. Adorable petit fours, meticulously decorated cookies, sheet cakes that make my mouth water just thinking about them, several sizes of pre-decorated cakes waiting for your special occasion message and an assortment of cookies the size of your face are all displayed and waiting to delight your taste buds! On the face sized cookie note…get a BROOKIE while you’re there. Don’t ask. Just do it! (Think cross between a cookie and brownie)
