For the best pie in town, go here! They have many different varieties of pie, and all are delicious. Try the Sawdust Pie! Burgers, sandwiches, salads, typical lunch fare.

Stopping here is better than a trip to creamery. Great variety of ice cream flavors and a nostalgic feel that is worth stopping in for.

We had the apple pie, chicken salad sandwich, Malts and the French dip. My advice- skip the French dip. The chicken salad and pie was perfection. Great atmosphere, love the old time soda fountain- it’s obviously a community favorite.

Ice Cream bar and restaurant. Daily specials--always quite good. Great variety of sandwiches which are made on the spot from good ingredients. Pleasant staff.

We visited here for lunch at the suggestion of the Blue Bell staff. There is plenty of seating and it's pretty noisy at lunch. The sandwiches are good, but the drinks are lacking. Get rid of Mr. Pibb and get Dr. Pepper. There are plenty...More

Hey Dan, Thanks for the feedback. We've actually had both Mr. Pibb and Dr Pepper for years. We have two fountain units. Sorry you didn't see the other one. Hope to see you back in here really soon! Charlie & Traci - owners

This is an iconic old timey ice cream parlor with all the accompanying ambience. The food is down home and the building's interior is visual overload! This is a good stop for an ice cream break or lunch while shopping or sight seeing in Brenham....More

We visited for a weekend and found this place with live music. The bad was pretty good and seemed like a popular spot. Was not impressed by anything.More

I would consider this more of a cafeteria if you plan to eat. You line up to place your order, pay and wait for your food to be put on your tray. You then find a table. Food is good ... primarily salads, soup, sandwiches...More

I never heard of breakfast at Must Be Heavens. I could be mistaken but as far as I know. I'd go for lunch if anything.
