Amy's ice cream never disappoints. Delicious and rich ice cream and they are always so helpful if you want a taste of a flavor before you buy it. The Belgian chocolate with almonds and coconut crushed-in is my favorite but there are so many flavor combinations it's sometimes hard to choose! An Austin tradition.

The sushi was alright but nothing stood out. The patio seating is fun for people watching though. The water tasted funny. The service was pretty good though.

Don't expect 31 flavors here. Do expect some unique combos that are really good. I've visited several Amy's throughout Austin and never had a bad experience. The Mexican Vanilla Bean is a go-to staple, but I always throw in one of their transient flavors that I just can't pass by.

The best ice cream! So much effort put in to the mixes to really make sure that the ingredients blend together. Just awesome.

Only stopped in for ice cream and it was awesome! Great flavored and mix ins! Free ice water as you walk in which was so appreciated on the 110 degree day! Super friendly staff!

Happy friendly people, good ice cream, and free water. They would occasionally break out in song too which was funny.

2901 S Lamar, Austin, TX We walked out after we saw one cashier flip ice cream under her leg and into someone's ice cream cone. And another cashier was mixing a customers ice cream on a dirty counter. We went to Lick's instead - very good

We visited Amy's at least three times during our stay in Austin and went to a different location every time. They are all over Austin. They juggle your ice cream right before your eyes and the unique flavors are delicious. My favorite was the apple pie. SPOT ON!

I think we waited about 30 min for them to serve us. The line probably had 15-20 people in front of us but the 3 folks at the counter were in no rush. The ice cream is good but if you see a line just be aware it might take a while.
