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 is masterful with her flavors. My all-time favorite is strawberry buttermilk but I try every flavor she comes up with. The flavors are so pure and everything about her shops is comfortable and warm.

Jeni's is fantastic premium ice cream. The flavors are unique, using locally sourced ingredients. She even has a cookbook that shares her recipes. After reading the book, I opt to just go to a scoop shop, because it's much much easier than creating her fabulous concoctions.

Best ice cream ever. Unique combinations and flavors. Big portions. The pecan ice cream is the best.

I always look for a crunchy ice cream and in that search when I initially moved to Columbus, I heard about Jenis. Never thought that I would get the one I was looking for but I am also hooked for the rest of my life!! Almond Brittle with any new seasonal flavor + butterscotch syrup is Heaven I say :)

I think maybe Jeni's gets high rankings because it has a perfect situation in that they have good ice cream AND a fun location where people can come and enjoy some ice cream while people watching and just hanging out. Heck if I'm in the area again and I'm hungry for some good ice cream AND it's not too crowded... More

Great ice cream with a wonderful taste. Very pricey ..save the visit for special occasions. If you want to get it at the grocery Hills Market in Worthington carries it too.

Jeni's ice cream is the best ice cream I've ever had. I must stop there every time I am in Columbus. The Salted Caramel is the best and the Buckeye is not too shabby either if you like peanut butter. You can't go wrong and they will let you taste anything you are curious about. Well worth and line you... More
