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.

I do understand the fuss. It is ice cream. I have had better and I have had worse. Good service though.

Whether it is in the Easton Town Center or Columbus' North Market, there is a reason why we make the trip north from Beavercreek to eat fresh flavors at Jeni's Ice Cream

Still love the salted caramel... my first flavor on my first visit, and still my favorite. Although nothing I've tried doesn't taste good :-) And thank you for introducing me to ice water with cucumber slices - refreshing!

There's such a variety of unique flavors at Jeni's that it's difficult to make a choice when we go in. They are really great about letting you taste before making your final choice. Go hungry because you'll want more than one scoop!

I'm so glad Jeni's is open again. The unique flavors are the best! I'm patiently waiting for the return of Goat Cheese with Red Cherries. That was my absolute favorite flavor! I found the recipe on line so if it doesn't come back soon, I'm going to have to try it home.

In almost every city I visit I look for a good ice cream store, perhaps trying to discover the joy of my very first 'special' ice cream shop and their speciality sundaes (the 'ice worm' which glowed, and flamed with 161 proof rum - oh my!) in the "King of Prussa" mall over 30 years ago. No speciality sundaes, but... More

Great experience. Knowledgeable staff, nice range of options and fantastic flavor. Don't know if the staff at all locations as good as they are here, but they were as good as the ice cream.
