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.

My favorite ice cream of all time

We buy jeni's at DLM as we live in Springboro but whenever we get to Columbus, a trip to one of jeni's ice cream shops is always on the itinerary. The seasonal flavors keep you guessing and wanting more. The high quality ingredient list is worth the extra money.

Jeni's has very original flavors that make it a lot of fun to try, but the price holds me back from saying it's an absolutely fabulous experience. It can also get extremely crowded and there's not much room.

Jeni's ice cream is awesome!! I like the goat cheese cherry and buckeye. The staff is friendly and helpful and its reasonably priced. It is so good that I eat it in 15 degree weather. The down side is that you pay a premium! Expect to pay three times what you would at Baskin Robbins.

To me everyday is ice cream day but especially during hot summer days in cbus Jeni's is a gift. They let you taste the flavors before you buy so you can't possibly pay for something you do not enjoy.

Great flavor combos and even ones I would never think of, but the price is a little much. Before Jeni's, I remember Ben & Jerry's being the "fun & trendy, different flavor ice cream". Price comparison pint to pint you can almost buy 3 pints of Ben & Jerry's to one of Jeni's. With all of that said, I do... More

It's divine! I have never tasted better ice cream in my life. They always taste exactly like what their descriptions say. Certain combinations of flavors seem a little strange at first, but give them a try, you might be surprised! It's a must-do in Columbus :-)

You will find unique flavor mixes here! They use natural flavors and real cream which creates amazing taste treats. A bit pricey, and there may be a line to get in, but well worth it!

Jeni's ice cream is one of the places you have to try when in Columbus. There is a wide variety of flavors from the normal (vanilla) to the more adventurous (one of my faves is Whiskey Egg Nog). They will let you try as many as you want before you order so be daring! My usual order is a double... More

Oh my goodness! This is the best place to go when you want to eat really great, creamy outrageous flavors of ice cream, yogurt. & sorbet. We like to take out of town guests for a treat here because this is such a unique place unlike any around. It is delicious!
