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.

"WOW . . . Is for Wonderful"

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... read 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

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!
