Amy's keeps in theme with Austin, very weird!

Great ice cream, weird employees, but purposely so, I think. A good place to people watch, hipster haven!

What a great place and innovative ice cream flavors! I had pumpkin and I have to say it was the best pumpkin I've ever had. It's high test friends, so don't expect low calorie. It was worth every bite! When we were leaving Austin we also noticed there is an Amy's in the Austin airport! There are a few locations... More

This is the all-time best ice cream I ever had. It is rich, creamy, smooth. Made with a flair by the competent mixers pounding, chopping, mixing your choice of additions into the ice cream. Typical Austin atmosphere, awesome place to hang out. Love Amy's!

Being from the UK it would be very rare to find a Ice Cream Parlour you could go to at 11pm! How cool is that!? Very quirky and cool interior with an awesome selection of ice creams that are locally made. In the UK when ordering an ice cream we often get a very dull and bored looking assistant who... More

A great place to go for burgers (Phil's Ice House) and to top it off with ice cream. Not just any ole ice cream, but hand made that combo to order. Phil's and Amy's share the dining room and parking lot. Its a great place for Austin's motto, "Keep Austin Weird". My daughter takes me there when I go to... More

They are really great ice creams and there is always a line! You can ask to put on toppings on the ice cream and they mix it up for you! I really recommend this place if you want good ice cream.

There is always long lines at Amy's Ice Cream and appropriately so as the staff are fun, skills and they slap the ice cream around HARD! It is a visual feast just enjoying the chopping, the mixing and great smiles all around. Such a fun way to serve ice cream, the happiness quotient jump up a few notches just by... More

Very popular and they put on a show! Excellent ice cream! Watching them add chopped goodies and mixing it up and throwing it in air to catch it in a dish or cone is worth the visit all on it's own.
