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.

Best Ice Cream in the Country

I became a bit of an ice cream connoisseur after living in Ohio since that is about the only food they have really nailed besides fast food (sorry Ohio, love ya!). Jeni's & Graeter's are about the best I have ever had. Jeni's is expensive with small portion sizes but also incredibly unique... read more

I'm not much of an ice cream eater but our family was there and it was hot. I got a small sugar come of darkest chocolate and immediately my mouth was flooded with flavor! The sugar cone was still warm from being freshly made and the amount of ice cream I received looked more like a large. Each taste of... More

We stopped at Jeni's while at the North Market in Columbus. the line was long, but didnt take too long to get thru. They let us try a few different flavors and had great descriptions of the flavors. I ended up getting 3 scoops - Root beer, brown butter almond brittle, and salted peanut butter with chocolate flakes. It was... More

I am from Arizona where ice cream is basically a necessity. This was my first time at Jeni's and holy cow! Was it good! The flavor never dulled and stayed the same rich creaminess throughout the eating... I would recommend it to any one looking for a delicious treat!

I hadn't heard anything about Jeni's before we went. We were pleasantly surprised at how good it was! The ice cream is very rich and delicious with some unique flavors, although I opted for traditional chocolate and vanilla. Beware that the line is long, but it's worth it!

I think the only reason Jeni's isn't the #1 ice cream place in Columbus (on Tripadvisor) is because of the price otherwise it is #1. Totally interesting flavors and a great way to support a great local lady. They are still trying to build back up their flavor catalog so it isn't as unique but I know all of those... More

The almond butter ice cream was AMAZING! They had a great selection of all kinds of flavors that they let you sample so you're not stuck with something you don't like. Love it.

Although Jeni's has some interesting flavors. I don't get the hoopla. My friends love it here, but I'm always just unimpressed. I would not recommend this place.
