Ever felt the nostalgia of shaved ice in the summer or a good down home café that does a wide variety of burgers and some pretty amazing fried chicken? Snowensville is the perfect place then with both a diner and a shaved ice/ice cream stand. Located in Owensville, the business started as a summer time shaved ice stand housed out of a portable trailer. As the business grew, they built a permanent location and then expanded to include a diner. Owner Danny Breeden, believes in an affordable family experience and markets over 40 meals that are just $5.99. If affordable prices weren’t enough, Snowensville has a tradition of making sure to give back to the community. They’ve held freshsqueezed lemonade fundraisers for the school and other community organizations, they’ve donated proceeds and when they were making mini donuts even drove all the way into St. Louis to donate the unsold donuts to the Children’s hospital.
Breeden keeps the community up-to-date on the latest with the stand and diner via live videos that he does almost daily and include moments of inspirational and motivational dialogue. The diner is located on 1st street and is walking distance from the shaved ice stand making it easy to have dinner and then go and get dessert. Or if you don’t feel like walking to the stand, they offer a variety of Central Dairy Ice Cream in the diner! You can’t go wrong!
