Description: We decided to open our first full-size scoop shop in Nashville in June...
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.

Best ice cream

I love this place. They have a huge selection of ice cream you can't find just anywhere. They have combinations of flavors you would never think would be good together, but I promise they are. We are never disappointed when we get ice cream from Jenr's.

Took my family here while visiting Nashville. My family of 3 was over $18.00. Great flavors and great quality, but not in everyone's budget. Located in a hipster area of town, really nice location. Wish they had more traditional flavors for smaller children but otherwise, a cool place to visit for special occasions.

Jeni's ice cream is packed full of flavors that will wake up your taste buds like ice cream has never done before. Plus it is full of healthy fruits, nuts etc that has to be good for you!

Jeni's is pricier than your average ice cream shop, but worth every penny. The higher quality ingredients they use really come through in the flavors they offer. I personally recommend the brown butter almond brittle and the sweet potato with torched marshmallows (this one is seasonal and only available in the fall), but I've not had a single bad flavor...

It is worth the wait in line, and there is usually a line. Try flavors you have never tried before. It might be a gem!

The brown butter almond crunch ice cream is incredible. The flavours and textures go together so well. I had to stop myself from going back for another cup! Also - they have gluten free flavours and that was one of them.

My personal favorite is the Goat Cheese ice cream, however, they just have such a wide variety of flavors that there is a unique flavor for everyone. When I think ice-cream, I think Jeni's Ice-cream. Highly recommend it!!!

Delicious ice cream! Unusual favors--I'm partial to the salted caramel and espresso (a scoop of each)! Plan on trying the kettle corn with the caramel next trip. Really lives up to the name. House made waffle cones are soooo good!
