Description: 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.

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.

This was the best ice cream I've ever had. I ended up eating it 4 times over 2 different days. My favorite was the Buckeye State and Salty Caramel on a waffle cone. Next time I'm in Columbus, I'll be eating ice cream again. Service was great and friendly. After my wife and I left Jeni's on Thursday night the... More

We checked out this Jeni's location while visiting from out-of-town for a wedding. We had heard from several of our friends how great it was supposed to be, so were excited to check it out. The staff is very friendly and helpful and there are some very fun and exotic flavor concepts. The prices and portion options were disappointing. You... More

They seriously will let you try all the flavors if you wanted. And common courtesy is to purchase a cup (at least) but that shouldn't be an issue as there is something for everyone.

Every city has their favorite ice cream shop. In Columbus, this shop is called Jeni's, and they have several branches. I stopped at the one near the Convention Center on High Street. Flavors at the shop abounded and it was quite busy (a good sign). The reisling poached pear was very unique and flavorful. That being said, the ice cream... More
