Description: Since August 2007, we've been a fixture in the heart of the Short North Arts District, an eclectic neighborhood of bars, galleries, antique stores, vintage clothing shops, boutiques, and restaurants. On Gallery Hop nights (the first Saturday of each month) offer the most boisterous scenes, but every day and evening we're serving trios, sundaes, and scoops at a steady pace to locals and visitors from around the world.

While on a recent business trip, my dinner companions wanted to try the Columbus institution, Jeni's, for a scoop of ice cream after dinner. I am definitely not an ice cream fan and knew that I would not eat much. It was great to taste a few interesting flavors before deciding on dark chocolate (my perennial favorite if I am... More

Do not leave the area without a stop at this ice cream shop-the inventive flavors and quality was unlike any ice cream I'd ever eaten-google it and then just try to stay away! The sweet corn and raspberry was unbelievable, the goat cheese and cherry was oout of this world! And the cantalope and green tea sorbet was delicious. Again,... More

I know there are a lot of people out there that like this place but I am not one of them. I tried their ice cream and I did not care for the taste of it. I love ice cream and will stay with my favorites such as Johnson's, Graters, and good ol UDF premium.

Jeni's has probably the most eccentric ice cream collection I've ever seen and some of the flavor combinations are sheer art. Be prepared to pay a pretty penny for their creamy delights! But, if price is not an issue, then this is the place to go!

and I wasn't disappointed. My only regret is that I had Jeni's after a big dinner or I would have gotten a bigger cone. So many great flavors to choose from, it was hard to make up my mind.

Amazing favors, friendly patient staff while one makes the difficult decision of what to chose. This is some of the most expensive ice cream I've ever eaten though.

I love the Queen City Cayenne. Such unique flavors. They are usually busy, luckily they are expanding to several Krogers stores. My only complaint would be that it is quite a bit more expensive than your average ice cream place.

As a Cincinnatian, I hate to admit it, but for me Jeni's tops our beloved Graeter's. I try to make a stop at Jeni's any and every time I'm anywhere near Columbus. Their selection is magnificent and the flavors are simply the most unique and delicious I've ever had. The aroma of the handmade waffle cones when you walk in... More

This is not your ordinary ice cream shop. While you may find traditional flavors like chocolate and vanilla, most flavors will make you raise an eyebrow....but I haven't had one I didn't like. My husband and I have been making Jeni's a date night since the beginning of our relationship. We have been to all shops within driving distance -... More
