Heard about this place, wanted to stop by and try the icecream. The MEXICAN VANILLA was so creamy and tasty (this from a chocolate lover). Companion had the strawberry and said it was very creamy. LOVED IT.

Ice cream, for me, rannks behind chocolate cake or candy, but even I love Amy's. Ice cream is excellent; service is great. Employees are also upbeat and friendly as well as helpful You can taste before buying which is really good.

We went here last week while in town. Saw the positive reviews on TripAdvisor and decided to check it out. We waited in line and ordered 2 turtle sundaes, a chocolate with mix-ins and a 3x Mexican vanilla with mix-ins. They were all good but nothing out of the ordinary. It reminded me a little bit of Cold Stone Creamery... More

This place is great! I got the Mexican vanilla which is their most popular and I can see why. It was amazing!!!! Parking is behind the buildings, we found a spot right away. You walk up and order at the window and can eat outside in the gorgeous Austin weather looking at downtown Austin.
