Austin's favorite dreamy cream with an attitude. Employees are known for their irreverent wit and outrageous serving routines.
Not exactly a restaurant, but the dill pickle popcorn is amazing. Here, you can get popcorn seasoned the same way as the meal you just had, or candied or drizzled in chocolate.

Pies both sweet and savory are the main attraction here. Traditional sweet flavors like strawberry rhubarb and buttermilk shine, but the junkberry and sweet & salty chocolate elevate the whole operation. Aside from hot and cold coffee drinks, smoothies, and iced teas, breakfast items here include the "hee haw" sausage pie and granola. Folks with smaller appetites can choose from an assortment of cookies, including peanut butter and chocolate chip.
