Four years after launching in Alabama, Steel City Pops made its way to Houston in summer 2016, setting up a brick and mortar shop in The Heights area. Made in small batches, SCP’s products shine using all-natural or certified organic ingredients, each sweetened with raw, organic cane sugar, rather than artificial colors and flavors.
Set near the bustling 19th Street Shops, Steel City unfolds in a bright and airy industrial space that is just plain cool. Shiplap accents and ironwork blend with subway tile and concrete floors, but the real visual interest might just be from the open kitchen, which allows guests to sneak a peek at the popsicle-making. On the menu, fans can select from fruity, creamy or cookie options with flavors like lavender lemonade, champagne white tea and vanilla chocolate chip.
Steel City Pops is open Sunday through Thursday, noon to 10 p.m., and Friday and Saturday, noon to 11 p.m.
