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

Very creative, excellent ice cream (very rich). Mexican vanilla was wonderful. Unique combos and flavors. Kids and parents both liked!

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.

Tried the SoCo location and wasn't overly impressed. Gave another shot at the airport leaving town only to have requested flavor 'not recommended due to overthawing' by employee. The blueberry muffin flavor that came in second for desired flavor at airport was very good.

I don't know what they put in their Mexican vanilla but it might as well be crack it was so addicting! Everyone loved the favors they got. Service was friendly and entertaining. Only downside was the horrendous smell in the joint - it was like an animal had died and then hey tried to cover It up with a cocktail... More

The line was long as they hand scoop each order but worth the wait. The selection wasn't as extensive as I thought it might be.
