Kris & Kate's Old Fashioned Ice Cream Treats-St Joseph MO

By
Real Estate Agent with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Stein Summers MO #1999033426

Last week while showing homes to the Minton family who are relocating to St Joseph

      we took a break and visited Kris & Kate's Old Fashioned Ice Cream Shoppe.

           Kris & Kates Ice Cream Treats 

      Their twin 5 year old daughters Tara & Cara immediately liked the

BIG PINK ICE CREAM CONE BUILDING and had quite a time in selecting which one of the

ice cream treats from the menu as their choice.

      Kris and her daughter Erica offer a warm welcome to customers at the fun family oriented store

                   Kris & Kate's Ice Cream Treats

Kris & Kate's Ice Cream shoppe offers special parking for Harley's, volleyball nets, sand-pits for the kids along with the-best-selection-of-ice cream-treats to be enjoyed at picnic tables or at the gazebo area while listening to the goldie oldie music.

                         Kris & Kate's Ice Cream Treats is located at Belt Highway and 36th Street

Debe!  Thank You!  I am going to call Erica & Kristommorrow and share the Feature with them....and putting St Joseph in the limelight.!  Special Thanks for your help along the way!

Carla! Ice Cream from Kris & Kates happens to be one of my almost daily stops!  Once you been there you will always go back.

Kim:  There is some New Years resolutions that are O.K. to break, Ice Cream along with chocolate it is alright to bend the rule a little.  lol~

Randall, Kris & Kate is a cool place right in the middle of everywhere in St Joseph!  I was eating Ice Cream when I posted this at 1:00 am this morning, time is unimportant when it comes to Ice Cream.

Chuck!  Ice Cream is kind of like Jello.....always room for more, isn't it?  Have a great 2010!

Terrylynne:  What town does your aunt live in?  Mom & Pop operations make up a very large part of local businesses in St Joseph, and I try to visit them as often as possible.  Kris & Kates is always convenient when traveling all directions in St Joseph. ~lol~

Tony, The car was going through the drive up window when I snapped the photo.  They do have old car shows there occasionaly in the summer and even cycles.  Unfornately, these small businesses most likely will have to do a lot of different advertising in the future.

Tom!  It really is nice when folks around the country can take a drive of local business on the interenet.  I bet Oklahoma has a lot of these little small businesses, don't they? 

Cheryl, I think I will wait awhile as the temperture didn't get above 20 day and Friday's suppose to be -2 for the high.  Could you come in the summer?  I would love to take you there!

Mike: Love the background in your picture profile, that is cool!  It is certainly not a good day today to visit as it is way to cold.  I look forward to seeing you again, real soon.

Joe, There is always a baseball team there in the summer and glad you mentioned that.  It does take us back a few years doesn't it?  Root Beer floats, haven't had one of them for a long time!  I love to tell about my area and look forward to reading about your area also.

Angelica, Next time you come this way, please be sure and let me know as I would love to show you St Joseph with the twins.  They would love it here, so much for kids and families to do all the time.  Hope you have a great 2010!

Mary, I am not for sure about all the history of the building, except it came from a warmer climate and does not have any heat so they are only open the summer months and used to be dark brown, it certainly looks so good with lighter colors, doesn't it!

Jason, The girls really had a difficult time in their choice also.  I seem to follow you all over the internet any more and certainly honored you stopped by! I am sure you had a fun time with your kids at Christmas, when they are little they want everything!  ~lol~  Best to you in 2010!

Gary: I love your positive blogs and all those beautiful photos you find, they are great!  Hope it is much warmer there than here, as this week the frigid temps is going 0 and below.  We may need to wait another day for ice cream!  Happy New Year to you also!

Nick~Your welcome!  Have a blessed New Years.

James, The building is unusual isn't it?  It's pretty obvious on what they are selling.  I am sure you have many unusal buildings in your city also.

Michael, I didn't realize we had that channel here, I need to check it out but that is all I need is to be around more food right after the holidays. lol

Hi Ann,  Kris & Kates Old Fashioned Ice Cream is scrumptious with large choice of flavors.  I am like you, Missouri needs to get out of the FREEZING zone!  I bet we never hear someone complain about HOT it is this summer, speaking of summer sounds like you and me are both ready!

Oh I see people complaining about all sorts of things...  The heat will be an issue...but at least in Missouri if you wait for while the weather will change...;-)
