ice cream San Antonio?

All of a sudden, I've got a hankering for some ice cream or frozen yogurt. Haven't seen any frozen yogurt stands. Is that something available here or is it just a california thing? Anyway, please help me satisfy my craving for something cold and sweet-- ice cream, frozen yogurt or ??? Thanks! dsg

  1. Amy's Ice Cream, a true Texas original, and favorite, now has a location in San Antonio, at the Quarry Market.

    You can check out the "Flavor Board" to see which ice cream varieties are on offer today at each of the locations.

    This famous place got its start at a little ice cream stand across from the UT-Austin campus. It's so terrific that it has slowly expanded to San Antonio and Houston. They do have frozen yogurt as well. From their website: "Amy's handcrafts artisan super premium ice creams, dairy-free fruit ices and frozen yogurt."

    Can't recommend it highly enough. In fact, the original Austin location was so popular that it was always on the list of places everybody takes out-of-town visitors to get a little unique taste of Austin.

    1. Whenever I'm in San Antonio, I try to get to Las Nieves for some Mexican shaved ice.
