The variation depends on the flavor of ice cream. Similar to gelato in Italy or Croatia, some textures and flavors are a better match than others. Overall, it's priced about right for artisanal ice cream and staff has always been helpful.

I absolutely love this place! The best flavors! My kids always ask to go here for a treat. When we go, I always end up taking a few pints home.

Okay, I'm gonna bust the bubble. Have been recently to a couple different Jeni's locations with same result. The ice cream is good, but not orgasmic. Some very interesting flavors. More than competent creaminess. Each time got the 2 scoop nearly $4.00 serving. The scoops, however, each time, were very small. Was not satisfied. In fact, I'd say the Jeni's... More

Jeni's has brought a unique experience to Columbus with amazing ice cream flavors and great locations to enjoy something sweet and exclusive. Be sure to try the different options. So many flavors you would never think to put together, Jeni has somehow done it. (I would love to see what her test kitchen is like!) Besides great ice cream, Jeni... More

Went here my first time in columbus. Wanted to know why everyone was waiting in line for this Ice cream so I had to try it. It was not bad but not great and definitely not worth waiting 1/2 an hour in line for. There is a great place in the Easton mall right before the escalators going up to... More

I also went to the Short North location. and then once at North Market. If you like different flavors you can't go wrong here, plus you can try as many as... More

Great ice cream flavors I couldn't decide what to get. The ice cream was great. Service was great, they were very patient while I was trying to pick my flavors. Will definitely come back when I am in Columbus.

Wanted to try Jeni's ice cream for excellent reviews on tripadvisor and tasted it at the Easton Town Center. Long lines to get in probably due to labor day weekend. Very interesting and unique flavors. The portions could be larger for the price. Have had much better quality and taste at Bruster's
