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.

Very unique flavors available

They have different kinds of unique ice creams to choose from. The pralines and cream had cinnamon in it which was different. It was rich and creamy. Absolutely delicious! Staff were very attentive and friendly. Facilities were modern and clean. Traffic on the the road is heavy.

Good ice-cream, many options, slightly expensive. However, you can get 2 half scoops which is great because you can try 2 different flavors in one scoop. Always busy, however fast because there are many servers working. I would recommend Jeni's icecream if you want a good icecream.

I love Jeni's! The ice cream is delicious and the vibe is fun. I love the 12 south location :) this time I had pistachio honey and darkest chocolate.

This is a great small ice cream shop with a wonderful selection of interesting ice cream which you will not find anywhere else. My favorite is the brown butter almond brittle. There is parking close to the building but weekends can be crowded and you may have to park further away. The atmosphere reminds me of an old ice cream... More

Wow, fantastic ice cream, actually as I think about it - it was the best! Their ice cream is the best I've ever had! It's silky creamy and rich with a high fat content (that's what makes it taste so good) and the flavors are unique and intriguing. The interior space has a welcoming hip design and there is plenty...

We go to Jeni's whenever we're in Nashville. It's the best ice cream you'll ever have. Their Dark Chocolate is amazing and so is their Peppermint Dark Chocolate. When in Nashville, make sure to visit Jeni's. It's the best.

On the plus side, Jeni's offers high quality ice cream in favors not found elsewhere. On the other hand, there is usually a line out the door, and you can't get out of there without spending at least $10 for 2. I rarely have the patience or the desire for both.

We stopped by here after a meal at The Wild Cow nearby - we weren't even in the mood for ice cream - but the store looks so chic and inviting from the outside that we decided to stop by. They have a wide array of flavors. My 4 year old had the dark chocolate peppermint flavor, my wife had... More
