Great lunch in an old fashioned setting.

It had been a few years since we had eaten at Must Be Heaven; since our kids were young. They always liked the ice cream best. We liked the fact that they could get good food that wasn't all fried. Back recently as empty-nesters, we noticed that hardly anything had changed--and that was good... read more

You can't make a trip to Brenham, Texas without stopping at this local hangout! Some of the best sandwiches, soups, quiches, and don't let me forget to mention the pies! Wow!

The food at this restaurant is truly Heavenly. My friend and I ordered different sandwiches and traded halves. I ordered the Rueben and she ordered The Works. Both of the sandwiches were delicious and put angelic smiles on our faces. We ordered the combo which included a huge bowl of fresh fruit, chips and a drink. They have a large... More

This is a great choice for lunch. Excellent soups and quiches. The sandwiches are made to order and are served on homemade bread. Save room for dessert because they have incredible pies and cookies - and of coarse bluebell icecream

Primarly a sandwich shop. The food is quite good, but the menu is limited. Atmosphere is adequate but fairly noisy. Have never been overly impressed after multiple visits

Very quaint place. Very very busy and great food! We had turkey club and chicken sandwich. We also had the fruit bowl and it was excellent fresh fruit.

My husband went in for ice tea and snack while I was shopping, and was completely ignored. He tried to get the waitstaff's attention twice, then left. I looked on the window a few minutes later and they were all sitting at the counter. Guess they didn't need our business.

After a fantastic lunch at BT Longhorn, my parents who had driven in from Houston, I drove in from Austin, wanted something sweet. I picked this place and will never go back. First off they advertised gelato and ice cream. Well, we understood no BlueBell but they could have had frozen yogurt at least with this heat. My Dad ordered... More

This is a popular place and it was apparent that many folks were locals. The service was friendly and pretty fast for it being a Saturday with a long line at lunch time. The bread seemed homemade and we appreciated the generous portions of meat on our sandwiches. We also ordered a bowl of fruit which was seasonal, large and... More

My first visit was for breakfast. The quiche and coffee were so yummy, I had to go back the next day for lunch. I had the avocado and sprouts and coconut meringue pie. Both were amazing. I am planning my next trip to Brenham and without a doubt I'll be visiting this place again. Definitely a must try.
