Open since March 2006, the shop is in a neighborhood immediately northwest of downtown Columbus populated by families, couples, children, and teenagers walking and biking to do errands, shopping in independently-owned-and-operated shops, and hanging out in lively spots like Stauf's Coffee Roaster's and Spagio. Home of the annual summer Tour de Grandview Cycling Classic, the renovated, single-screen Grandview Theatre, and the sidewalk Art Hop (last Saturday of every month), Grandview and its main artery, Grandview Avenue, is full of people just taking it all in.

Jeni's is a must!!

Wow - outstanding. Lot's of unique flavor choices. I tried the Brown Butter almond Brittle, Brambleberry Crisp, and Salty Caramel. I stayed with the Brown Butter almond Brittle - delicious. My son had the Salty Caramel - also delicious. When in CBUS make sure you stop by the North Market and... read more

We knew about Jeni's because my cousin from Columbus drop-shipped us some of their ice cream a few years back. (Yes, the ship it. Dry ice. Wonderful stuff.) When we got to Columbus, we went straight to the local Jeni's immediately after checking in to the hotel. It's just as good as ice cream can possibly be. I won't get... More

Every travel to Columbus we stop at Jeni's. This is my favorite ice cream ever. All of the flavors we have ever had have been outstanding. I often receive orders from friends in Illinois to bring Jenny's home to them.

I discovered this place many years ago and have it sparingly. It is an experience and amazing flavors. By far the first place to offer salted caramel which is now definitely everywhere and in everything. My kids and everyone I tell about it love it.....but....why in the world does it have to be so expensive. I have a gaggle of... More

I thought Handel's Ice Cream or Cold Stome Creamery was the best. This tops both!!! I wish I bought a pint of their Chocolate Bombay limited edition ice cream- it was amazing! Unexplainable!! If you're at the North Market this is a MUST. You cannot be disappointed! They give out free samples too!! Just do it!

This place is cool to visit, especially if you're not from Columbus. The ice cream is made of quality ingredients and they have unique flavors. But if you live in this city and you're craving ice cream ( & you're not too snooty) I think a tub of ice cream works just as well & is way cheaper It's a... More

Loved being able to sample the flavors and have the counterperson being enthusiastic about the product. Ice cream was clean tasting with the right consistency and flavors.

By far the best place to get ice cream in central Ohio. They have a ton of flavors and you can try the different types before buying. I recommend all my family and friends to give it a try when they come to visit. The salted caramel ice cream is amazing.

Jeni's ice cream is in a class by itself. The level of creativity and execution is unmatched in my experience. I know this sounds like hyperbole. But I honestly haven't ever had anything that compares. I have no relationship with the company, or anyone who works for them. I just think it's amazingly good stuff.
