Original flavors that will keep you coming back for more, and more...

If you need something to cool you down, grab a boost with ice cream cones from Amy’s Ice Cream. A staple of Austin’s dessert scene, you can stay outside and order at the window overlooking South Congress, just a couple blocks north of South Congress Cafe. Their Mexican Vanilla is a best-seller for a reason, and their specialty flavors are both fun and delicious. (COVID Era Note: Sadly, sampling is not offered at this time, so you’ll have to trust us.)

After lunch at South Congress Cafe, and ice cream at Amy's, head southeast to enjoy a picnic and cool off at McKinney Falls State Park.
