We’ve talked about Cups & Cones before and gave you 6 reasons why you can eat more ice cream. But we didn’t take a moment to really break down all of the local (and delicious) food that is being served at Cups & Cones.
Let’s start with breakfast.
You’re not in Texas if you can’t get a breakfast taco and Cups & Cones is serving up some on the best from Hooked Up Tacos. You can choose from several ready-made combinations like egg and bacon, egg and sausage, or egg and potato. They all come with cheese and your choice of red or green salsa. If you like your salsa with some kick, the green salsa is to die for!
Have breakfast with a cup of coffee — or five cups of coffee. All sizes of coffee are served to you in a bottomless cup of goodness for a cost of $2. You’re not going to get that at your local Starbucks.
Grab a hot or cold lunch.
After a recent kitchen remodel and a new grill, Cups & Cones is serving up made fresh to order hot sandwiches including delicious Panini’s. And word on the Steiner Ranch streets is that Rick’s Philly cheesesteak is amazing. Rick is originally from Chicago, so you can bet that he knows how to make a pretty mean cheesesteak.
Red Cottage Kitchen adds more variety to the lunch menu with a healthy selection of meal-sized salads (under 500 calories) and sandwiches.
All of these items can also make for a quick dinner if you’re caught running the kids around for sports and other activities. You can avoid eating at a fast food joint and support living local.
And then you have the treats.
There’s a reason why the Texas food pyramid is made up of breakfast tacos, barbecue, Mexican food and Blue Bell Ice Cream — most Texans (and Steiner Ranchers) love Blue Bell Ice Cream. Cups & Cones has been the place to get your Blue Bell Ice Cream fix from the time they first opened back in 2007.
So when Blue Bell was pulled from the shelves, and the local ice cream supply in jeopardy, Rick and Kristi did what any resourceful business owners would do — they had a conversation with Amy from Amy’s Ice Creams. Shortly after that conversation, Amy’s Ice Creams was delivering their yummy goodness to the Cups & Cones freezer.
This is a big deal! Amy’s Ice Creams was contacted by a hundred other businesses when Blue Bell stopped delivering. Cups & Cones is one of three places, outside of Amy’s own locations, that you can get Amy’s Ice Creams.
On a side note, Blue Bell Ice Cream hasn’t made any firm commitments on when they will be able to start supplying Cups & Cones with their ice cream again.
It would be shocking to know that you could be living in Steiner Ranch without knowing about Cups & Cones. If you live outside of Steiner Ranch, just drive a mile and a half down the main drag of Quinlan Park and you’ll find Cups & Cones next to the Wag-A-Bag and opposite to the entrance of the UT Golf Club.
