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.

This is the best ever

I love everything about this place! Great flavors, endless samples, nice people. Fav flavors include buckeye state and their version of salted caramel.

Nothing special. $8.50 sundae had a disgustingly disproportionate amount of fudge. Whole thing was spilling over the side of the undersized cup which made it difficult to eat. First and last time at Jeni's; but to be fair, it was edible and I ate about half of it before throwing it away.

They had a cute atmosphere and free samples which was nice. It was delicious ice cream, but I would say it is a bit overpriced..

People in Nashville are wild about Jeni's. I had some 3 days ago at their new shop on 21st Ave S in Hillsboro Village. To be honest, I don't quite see what all the fuss is about. It tastes good. Better than Baskin Robbins? No. Better than Sweet Cece's Frozen yoghurt (a local Nashville establishment)? No. Better than Graeter's ice... More

Jenni's has great ice cream. They tend to have some really exotic flavors. If you are going with really young picky eaters, it might be a problem. It really is splendid ice cream!

We would drive across town to get Jeni's when it first opened in East Nashville. Slowly they have added shops around town and now have a location open in a neighborhood we frequent. Taste all the flavor and then get a coupl scoops. I have to say the sundaes are very good. It's hard to go wrong with ice cream!

I went with a basic. My husband got a scoop of goat cheese and red cherries and a scoop of sweet corn and raspberry. The favor was good. The ice cream actually tasted like cream. Great little spot

Sad that there was a recall a couple of months after our visit. We will always stop at a Jeni's, although quiet pricey.

I had a small cup of creamy chocolate and a toffee salt ice creams with the salted caramel syrup. Excellent, plenty of sweet, not too much salt!
