I don't know if this belongs under "News" or "Desserts," so if it needs to be moved, no problem!
 
According to the following article, Royers Pie Haven is scheduled to open this Sunday, 11/10, from 11-4.  It's the new venture by Bud Royer and his daughter Tara Royer Steele.

The man does make really good pies, but the policy of insisting you get ice cream on top irks me a little.  It doesn't look like it will happen here, though.  Best of luck and I will definitely stop in next time through Austin.
 
Thanks for the link love2bake!

Hey, I'd have taken your extra ice cream, too. And I'm prettier than he is.

Do they really insist on 'A La Mode' even with the Meringue Pies??
I don't think I want my Lemon Meringue or Lemon CreamCheese pies 'altered' that way.

Oh, it would be great with chocolate or peach ice cream. Wait. Spumoni!

From the menu page at Royers Round Top CafĂ©, "We serve all pies with Amy's ice cream for $6.75.  It cost 50 cents extra if ya' don't have the ice cream."

From the at , "We serve all pies with Amy's ice cream for $6.75.  It cost 50 cents extra if ya' don't have the ice cream."

BB--the article linked at the start of this stated in the last paragraph:
"The Cost: Very affordable. Slices run about $4.50 ($6.50 with Amy's Ice Cream), and whole pies are about $23. In addition to slices and whole pies, they also plan to do a lunch special, with a slice of savory pie, a side and a drink for just a few bucks." There wasn't any mention of serving ALL pies with ice cream and seems to indicate that you get charged extra for it--what you would expect. Except in the Cafe, of course! Can you imagine a savory pie with ice cream? Yuck!

You mean you don't care for pasties with vanilla?

No, Michael. Nor with strawberry or chocolate.

Cliff - Poor Gonzo is recovering from PIC (Pie Induced Coma) he is not a true pie professional like you and CTD.

After the pie eating we have seen from you these past weeks, CTD and I must say "we are not worthy"!
