Great variety!

Ice cream, sundaes, floats, frozen yogurt...lots of variety of flavors! The place was packed! We had lemon and mango frozen yogurt - awesome! chocolate, peanut butter, French vanilla ice cream - very good flavors. You can pick 2, 3, or 4 different flavors which was really nice. Kids loved it!

I am a huge ice cream fan but I will try to give a grounded review. Jeni's is a refreshing return to the basic essence of ice cream, classic flavors with a twist. I love trying the seasonal flavors, my favorite is Cherry Kickapoo (I think) it is roasted cherry and caraway seed ice cream. Jeni's is a whimsical treat... More

Went back to Jeni's but I discovered that they do not yet have pints and some of the flavors are not yet back. I was happy to support the company and I got my two half scoops. The dark chocolate was very good but the espresso? Very weak flavor. So, next time I will choose a different combo.

Went to support our local Jeni- stood in the requisite line and the fresh faced scoopers didn't seem to mind the constant flow of people. Good chocolate ice cream and friend had mango sorbet. In and out In a reasonable time with a good treat. Thumbs up.

If heaven was on a spoon, it would be served in this place. Jeni's was on my bucket list, and I can thankfully say I crossed it off this weekend. Their staff was so friendly and helpful, really charming and down-to-earth. My problem was that there were so many flavors, it seemed impossible to choose! I ended up going with... More

True to other reviews, the scoops ARE very small & pricey, but I thought I'd try it once for the experience. I chose Wildberry Lavender, Riesling Poached Pear & Intelligentsia Black Cat Espresso (caffeine for the 2.5 hr drive home!), as the 'trio' seemed more worth its value at only $1 more than for just one scoop. My server placed... More

Waffle cones are crisp and light. A large variety of unusual flavors (i.e., Wildberry lavendar, etc.) and hand whipped cream. One of the best ice cream parlors I've visited.

Their ice cream is pretty impressive and some of their favors can't be experienced elsewhere. We tried a coriander-lemongrass that was outstanding. Flavors are intense!

Could sample all I wanted. Very interesting flavors. Friendly staff. Rainy weeknight after 9:00 pm and a line. Prices are a little steep (almost $5 for two scoops in a bowl).

WOW . . . what else can you say when you experience some of the best and most unusual ice cream flavors around? When we first discovered Jenni's we simply saw this line of people out of the door of this store and wondered what is was. We got in line, waited a while, and experienced some of the best... More
