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.

Pistachio honey and bramble berry!

Undeniably the best ice-cream in ohio. Their pistachio honey is amazing. Try it with a scoop of bramble berry and Boom! Your taste buds will scream with joy! They have a variety of choices....so you can find your favorites.

Sooooo good, worth waiting in line! Visited the location in North Market EVERY DAY. Tried something new each time, flavors are very artisanal and fresh. Can't beat a hand-made, still-warm waffle cone...

One of our first stops upon returning to Columbus was The North Market for a stop at Jeni's. One of our favorite spots! The Darkest Chocolate and Salted Bourban Pecan were scrumptious and did not disappoint.

With a slight twinge of apprehension over their Listeria-induced shutdowns (that's plural), my wife and I took the plunge back to our favorite boutique ice cream shop for dessert. The store, at Easton, had next to nothing on the shelves. No to-go pints in the freezer. I'll take that as a sign that they're getting their supply chain up and... More

There is a vast choice of flavours, of the several that I tasted in sample pots, my favourite was the salty caramel. Well priced for what tasted like hand made ice cream

It is so hard to rate one ice cream over another but this is worth the visit if you are in Columbus. Sort of like having a Coney Island hot dog in NYC. You just need to experience it

The flavors are always unique and interesting. My favorite is a seasonal sweet corn and blackberries. Don't expect to come here and get just chocolate and vanilla. Very artisan but worth a try. The only downside is that it is not cheap. I love ice cream but can't afford to go here all the time especially if there are other... More

Great ice cream with a wait out the door. The lines move fast and they are happy to give a sample. Only thing missing is seating outside. A bench or something would be nice on a warm summer night!

Years ago before I knew about Jeni's I ran in to a couple who were from another state and they were waiting for Jeni's to open at the North Market. They told me that they always stop by when traveling through Columbus. Because they raved on about the ice cream I had to give it a try. YUM, Jeni's is... More
