Amy's is an Austin legend, and has the lines of eager ice-cream lovers to prove it. I had one scoop of lemon cheesecake and one scoop of coffee ice-cream and it was the best I have had in many, many years. It was divine. The no-frills cafe style of the parlour is very "Austin" and who cares when the weather... More

Our friends in Austin recommended we try Amy's. We definitely were not disappointed. We stopped by on a Friday night after taking a bat cruise on Lady Bird Lake. There was a little bit of a line, but it moved fairly quickly. The servers were having fun by singing to the songs playing in the shop and doing tricks with... More

Fresh ice cream, tons of mix-ins, servers with personality - its a win-win place. I'd recommend it for a family outing or an out of town visitor. Some of the locations get really weird - one time they had the customer stand across the street with their empty cone and the server tossed they scoop of ice cream to them... More

Can't go wrong with a coffee milkshake with a scoop of hot fudge inside! My favorite ice cream in all of Austin!

This is my favorite location of the Amy's Ice Cream shops. Their ice cream is great; you must have the Mexican Vanilla! They did an amazing mix-in with this flavor and Oreos, a salute to the Mexican free-tailed bats that live under the Congress Street Bridge (see what they did there?). Loved the movie trivia questions on the chalkboard, and... More

Their not-so-classic ice cream flavors are very yummy. Also, get the chocolate sprinkles, they're actual chocolate, not just glorified sugar chunks.

I never tire of coming to Amy's. There are always unique flavors and creative ways it is served. Behind the back toss, across the street toss, etc... They are doing their part of keeping Austin creative! And keeping the sweet tooth satisfied!

It was love at first ice cream bite! Amy's always offer different and creative flavors, as well as the usual flavors (belgian chocolate was my top choice). They offer a variety of toppings and play with the ice cream before landing it on your bowl. The staff is attentive and nice.

This is ice cream with an emphasis on cream (and butter). It never melts, even in your arteries. It is extremely rich and sweet. I loathe this ice cream. But I'm partial to gelato and froyo and things that are cold and light and flavorful. The only thing worse than Amy's ice cream is Amy's froyo. Disgusting.
