Ice cream is prepared on a marble slab (I believe that is what it is) and you can make your own combinations. Due to the preparation time, this is not a place you want to rush into if you have limited time as each order takes a while for them to prepare. We had 6 in our group, so by... More

It doesn't matter how many times we have been, we never get sick of Amy's! Such amazing flavors and toppings! Malted Vanilla and Mexican Vanilla are our two favorites. And on a hot day, it is a great place to get our of the heat and into AC :) Highly recommend!

Been to a lot of Ice cream shops and this may have topped them all. Not only was the Ice cream top quality in flavor and texture. The toppings were excellent. Along with that the names for their conncotions were fun and goofy. Add to all that was the character behind the counter. I am not sure how to describe... More

It is worth the calories to eat Amy's brownie Ice cream sundae every now and then. I prefer coffee ice cream with whipped cream served with Amy's dark cholocate brownie.

The ice cream is creamy rich and yummy -- but the coolest part was watching the server mix things with rhythm in and catch it in mid air!

We rocked up here after having some dinner and were really entertained whilst standing in the queue ... The staff were singing, dancing and smashing the toppings - brilliant to watch. A tad expensive but made up by the double overload on chocolate ....👍👍

Stash IPA ice cream with pecans and hot fudge was great. Service was very friendly. A block away from original Whole Foods.

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.
