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.

Rich, creamy heaven on a spoon.

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.

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

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

Jeni's unique flavors and fresh taste is what makes them stand out. They pride themselves on using fresh local ingredients and you can taste it in the ice cream. If it will be your first time trying Jeni's, make sure to try a few samples of different kinds because the flavors are so unique and rich. This is a great... More

I come to Columbus twice a year and always make a stop or two at Jeni's while I'm there. Seriously, I've never had ice cream this good anywhere else. Get scoops of such flavors as Whiskey & Pecan, Riesling Poached Pear sorbet, Meyer Lemon & Blueberries, Goat Cheese & Cherries, etc. It's simply the best. Expensive, but worth every single... More

We loved trying the unique flavors at Jeni's. The staff was helpful and didn't mind giving you plenty of taster spoons. Definitely, the right place for dessert after dinner, even in the winter.

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
