As historic High Street bisects Columbus in the northern reaches of the city, the storied thoroughfare takes you to the wonderful Clintonville neighborhood. We're proud to call the pedestrian-friendly area, packed with thriving restaurants, bookstores, coffeehouses, and marketplaces, home to our sixth location, which opened next to a true Columbus gem, Northstar Cafe, in October, 2010. Up with superlative ingredients.

The various, unique combinations offered make deciding what to get difficult. This is not your typical ice cream parlor. The chocolate flavors are rich and wonderful. Goat Cheese with Red Cherries, Salty Caramel, and Wildberry Lavender are just some of the delicious flavorful treats one can eat. Some flavors depend on the season.

The success and press feature of Jeni's is well deserved. Consistent anntention to detail with a regional ingredient focus has established this ice cream as a national draw. Some favorite flavors to consider : the milkiest chocolate and reisling poached pear sorbet. Whether you are a cbus'er or visitor, hit one of these locations, brave the line, and enjoy.

I love going to try new flavors at Jeni's. Some combos may sound weird, but are often very good. My fav of all time is the Askinose Chocolate. Try the sandwiches well.

A must visit place in Columbus is North Market located in the Short North District. North Market is a working public market that dates back to 1876 and is similar to the Redding Terminal Market in downtown Philadelphia. Thirty-five local vendors sell products, food, cookware, wine, coffee and gourmet goods. Some of the most innovative ice cream flavors I’ve eaten... More

The name says it all - truly enjoyable ice creams! We were a little overwhelmed by the variety, but the servers were super friendly and let us sample all the flavors we wanted. We went with the "Sweet Potato" and the "Biscuits and Jam". Both were unique combinations that were pulled on so well. A delightful blend of sweet, smooth,... More

I love this place! Needed a travel stop and looked to Trip Advisor and found Jeni's! Amazing flavors to choose from. My salty caramel was wonderful! Love the story of the store - using local ingredients and that Jeni is involved in local nonprofit organizations. The only problem - I was on the road and couldn't take any with me!

I have had gelato in Italy and fine ice cream in France and they were exquisite, but I have to say that Jeni's is my all time favorite. Now there is a plethora of experiments and offerings as well as all the normal flavors you would expect. My favorite is salty caramel and I have to be careful not to... More

We went here after Thai food so it was nice to get a walk in and get some ice cream to follow hot Thai food. Gets crowded at night so be prepared to stand in line. It is really expensive too...for ice cream. Still like Blue Bell from Texas better.
