Jim Jims wins the Best Italian Water Ice in Austin, available in many natural fruit or sugar free flavors. It is different than a snow cone in texture and does not contain the artificial flavors, so it definitely worth a try. Plus, it is right in the hub of Dirty Sixth, and a great way to cool off while exploring the area.

The original Iron Cactus location overlooks Sixth Street and serves lime juice margaritas to enjoy while people watching and provides a great way to experience Sixth Street during the day. Be sure to order the table-side guacamole and leave room for dessert across the street at Jim Jims.
Both locations within 250 feet of 615 East 6th Street, Downtown Austin.
