Description: We decided to open our first full-size scoop shop in Nashville in June, 2011 in the East Nashville neighborhood for many reasons, but mainly because the place reminded us so much of our scrappy roots. East Nashville, home to cyclists and pedestrians, families and urban farmers, artists and musicians of all stripes, and do-it-yourself bar and restaurant owners, is one of our favorites places in the country. Since we've been in East Nashville, we've been able to cultivate partnerships with folks such as Don Henry, who grows strawberries for us to make the perennial favorite Roasted Strawberry Buttermilk, as well as the good people at Yazoo Brewing Company, who supplies Yazoo Sue porter for the year-round ice cream Yazoo Sue with Rosemary Bar Nuts. There's a fantastic creative community and overall vibe throughout Nashville-especially in East Nashville.

This place has excellent ice cream and a good selection of flavors. It is easy to find. It has a few tables on the inside and some seating on the outside. It was rich and creamy and super flavorful. It can get real busy and there may be a line but it moves quickly. You can try a sample here... More

We stopped by on a Friday evening and there was no line. The ice cream is good, but I would not wait in a long line for it. Servings are also very small.

Don't get me wrong, the ice cream was very good. After experiencing it once, I'm not sure I would wait the hour on line.

After reading Trip Advisor reviews, my wife and I drove to E. Nashville, and weren't disappointed. After a long day with a meager lunch, we splurged and each had a sundae with "gravel" on top. We had never visited a Jeni's, but we liked the touches of refrigerated sundae dishes, and lime fruit water to cleanse your palette.

Loved the variety of unusual flavors. I sampled four and didn't feel bad about it! At these prices, they can let me sample several first! I liked getting two flavors in the same cup. No, the $5 cup doesn't look like much, but the ice cream is definitely rich. Still, this was a splurge at $5. This is a great... More

All the hype is spot on. The ice cream is delicious, albeit a little pricey. Be prepared to wait in line though, unless you hit it at a particularly slow time. (Note: you can order ice creams to be delivered through Jeni's website. Great idea for gifts!)

Don't get the excitement about this place. Went there with visiting family last week. 3 small servings with some extras for $32. Overrated.

This place is great all the way around. Atmosphere is fresh and energizing and very clean and well laid out. The staff was very helpful and friendly and guided us well as it was our first time there. The ice creams are baller and I can genuinely see why this is the #1 spot in town. Would recommend to anyone... More
