Amy’s, South Congress – Austin, Texas

With all the changes on South Congress Avenue, especially ones that shift the neighborhood to an upscale clientele, it’s comforting to know that the old standbys are still around. Yesterday, I talked about my favorite pizzeria, Home Slice. Today, an Austin ice creme favorite, Amy’s.

After an early dinner, my wife and I walked South Congress and decided that Amy’s Ice Cream would make an ideal dessert. We shared a double-scoop of their darkest chocolate.

Amy’s is a local Austin ice cream store chain and has been around since I arrived in 1992. Wikipedia indicates that there are 14 locations, and the chain started in 1984 — a true Austin institution. All the ones I visited feature colorful and playful decorations.
