Even the simple vanilla is so yummy. We stopped to get ice cream, always a line but worth it. Many fun and interesting favors and fair priced.

Visiting family who took us to eat at Phil's Icehouse which is an old gas station converted in to a burger joint. Well Amy's is attached to the dining area. Great combo, have a burger then ice cream after. And not just any ice cream, they put a special twist that makes eating their ice cream an adventure in your... More

My husband isn't an ice cream kind of guy, but we got hooked on the Mexican Vanilla! TRY IT OUT on South Congress! Homemade and wonderful!

When we visit Austin we always go to Amy's. Lots of goodies to choose from and everyone is always delighted with the results. Last time I had Belgian Chocolate and it was heavenly with walnuts crushed in. It's fun entertainment for the kids to watch their choices getting put together, too.

We stopped in for a late night treat after hanging out on 6th street. They were very friendly and let us order 15 min before close. There are lots of flavor options, unique toppings and it has a Coldstone vibe. The Mexican vanilla was fantastic. My taste buds are asking for more, but sadly they will have to wait until... More

My husband and I have made it a ritual to go to Amy's Ice Cream every time we go to Austin. The ice cream is excellent. I get the Belgian chocolate (or any chocolate is good) with fresh strawberries mixed in. Soooo yummy!!! We went this past weekend to the one on 6th Street and my only complaint was that... More

We were there this weekend and each time there was a line out the door. The staff is friendly. try the "Salty Dog" if you like chocolate, heath and carmel. Its a bit expensive, $5 for a small but if you want a special treat, its worth it.

Took the kids to Phil's icehouse for lunch and then played in the back on the jungle gym and then came next door for ice cream. Wonderful ice cream. Try the beehive crunch!

My husband is diabetic so we are quick to ask if a restaraunt has diabetic friendly items on their menu. We were delighted to find that Amy's not only has a nice variety of delcious ice creams but they also offered 2 or 3 sugar free flavors which allowed my husband to enjoy our evening snack with us.

Amy's was one of the only places on my list that we didn't get to before leaving Austin. Then there it was across from our gate at the airport! I had the dark chocolate, which tasted like a truffle in the form of ice cream. Extremely creamy, smooth and decadent. My husband had the Butter Pecan and ate it all... More
