Old style ice cream and sandwich shop in downtown Fredericksburg,TX. Delicious ice cream and old fashion cones. Many things to buy displayed on drug store type shelves...great place for a rest stop or just a quick meal.many flavors of in-house made ice cream.

I can' say enough about this place. We (the locals) rely on them for so much. John has also helped with my baking needs. Great bakery, ice creams, sandwiches, and salads. They also cater. They are my Christmas bakers!

I can't add dinner in the title because we left town by late afternoon. We had soup, sandwiches, multiple pastries and dessert, plus ice cream here during our visit. I was thoroughly impressed with the service and the food. Wonderful!

We stopped in for pastries and coffee. Coffee was okay, but the sausage & cheese kolaches and the German pretzel were very tasty!

What a fun shop! We all had ice cream and some fresh baked cookies. Everything was really good. The kids enjoyed pumping quarters into the old timey games. Old soda shop feel. Awesome lemonade with free refills! Espresso coffees, too. Smiling staff. They have food, but we didn't sample any on this trip. We'll stop in again on our next... More

This place is top-notch from start to finish! We stopped here in the morning to indulge in some sweetness. We tried three different pastries, a bacon and cheese scone, and a pecan shortbread cookie. Each one was delicious. Later in the day we returned to have strawberry cheesecake ice cream and praline pecan ice cream. The ice cream is made... More

Spent some quality time with the family as we each enjoyed a different flavor of Clear River Ice-Cream--excellent!! Had we discovered this place sooner, we'd have eaten lunch as well. The menu looked wonderful and there were several enjoying a variety of sandwiches they provide. Prices were average and the unique way of charging per ounce for ice-cream (as is... More

Was looking for a latte and smoothies but so many coffee shops close at 5pm. Found Clear River instead. Great selection of ice cream, shakes, coffee drinks, cookies, and even kolaches! Don't let the line out the door stop you...It goes fast.

Oh my goodness this was amazing ice cream. You must visit this place when in Fredericksburg. It defies amazing, and is beyond amazing. The ice cream is delicious and flavorful. And the decor is reminiscent of an old soda shop from the 50's. Come to this place...I hear they have regular food too, but who can eat that when the... More
