Handel’s Homemade Ice Cream
Handel’s just opened in Anderson Mill West (right by Torchy’s). They have crazy good, unique flavors (all homemade!) and so many options like chocolate raspberry truffle and blueberry cobbler, it’s hard to choose! They also have a playground right out front making it the perfect spot to treat your kids.
Manolis makes homemade ice cream in South Austin and serves it out of their food truck situated on a gorgeous shady patio. They have a playscape and yard games for kids and plenty of covered picnic tables.
We love going to Meanwhile (it’s the #1 place we bring our visitors from out of town!), and our trips there are made even sweeter when the Besame Ice Cream Truck is open! The “Over The Rainbow” flavor is a must-try (and one we always get), but the best part of this place is their over-the-top unique flavors (and names!). Everything we’ve tried here we have loved.
