It’s been a while since I shared a Favorite Austin Eats post, but I’ve got a great one for you today! These photos were taken at the best ice cream shop in Austin: Lick Ice Creams. It appears to be warming up around these parts *crosses fingers* which means there are lots and lots of Lick dates in my future!
The major factor that sets Lick apart from other ice creams is their honesty. All of their ice cream comes from a local dairy, and they stay super aware of the origins of their other ingredients that can’t be found locally by ordering from small, independent businesses whenever possible. I never feel like I’m being overly indulgent when I eat Lick because I know that everything that goes into their ice cream is made with pure joy. There’s nothing sweeter!
When people ask what my favorite ice cream flavor is, I usually say cookies and cream or something, but the honest answer is goat cheese, thyme, and honey at Lick. I can’t even explain the flavor to do it justice, so you’ll have to pop in to give it a try. I usually pair it with a scoop of salted caramel, but on this day I tried the seasonal grapefruit with champagne marshmallows and was not disappointed.
Also, you can choose to have your ice cream in a homemade waffle cone or bowl. I swear there’s no better waffle ice cream container on the planet!
Coming to Austin soon? Make sure to put Lick at the top of your must-go list while you’re in town!
