Visitors of the Thinkery and residents of the Mueller development have a new spot for ice cream just in time for summer. Lick Honest Ice Creams opened today at 1905 Aldrich Street, Suite 150, across from the children’s museum and around the block from neighborhood Italian restaurant L’Oca d’Oro. It is the fourth location from the farm-to-table creamery that originally opened in South Austin in 2011. The shop is open 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11:30 a.m. to 11:30 pm on Friday and Saturday.

To celebrate its grand opening, the shop will give away free scoops (one per customer) from 7 to 10 p.m. this evening. In addition to the give away, all proceeds from the first day will go to Urban Roots, and Lick will accept donations for the non-profit throughout the week.

“I wanted to have the proceeds benefit Urban Roots because it’s an organization that’s close to my heart and we’re all so impressed and inspired by the work they do. We’re also lucky enough to source produce from them each year and I hope we can only strengthen that commitment in the years to come,” co-owner Anthony Sobotik said.
