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.

Great ice cream! Awesome flavors! Whipped cream is really good!! Skip the overly salty "smoked" almonds. This is artisan ice cream at it's best!

The flavors are so unique but don't let that intimidate you. I sampled six or so flavors without any annoyed looks and they were ALL incredible. I was so impressed and not expecting it to be that good.

Our granddaughter went nuts for this place. Lapped up a huge bowl of cream and then played with the chalkboard while we savored ours. I love the salted caramel and the baby loves Lavender Berry. Nashville has very few real ice cream places and this is the best one.

I saw that Jeni's was #1 out of all the places in Nashville and I just couldn't imagine...ice cream the number one restaurant? What a delightful hipster place with the freshest silkiest ice cream in all imaginable flavors! I had the Brown butter almond brickle, the Lime Cadomon, and the Brackleberry Crisp - it was a trio of heaven. Not... More

I had to check out Jeni's after seeing all of the great reviews, AND watching a feature on Food Network while I was in Nashville. After trying many amazing flavors, I settled on the lemon blueberry. I might just have to place an online order- there's no way I can wait until my next trip to Nashville to taste that... More

High price for decent gourmet ice cream. $5 for two small scoops is ridiculous. I like their variety of bold flavors but it's too pricey to justify more than once a year or so. I've had better, and got a lot more for the same money.

Some could call this a meal, so not to be compared to a restaurant. However, it is awesome and tasty Ice Cream!!

Delicious ice cream. They let you taste as much as you want. Such unusual favors. I got a scoop of barnyard mint and a scoop of sweet cream biscuits with peach jam!! Crazy!

Located in an upscale strip center in a quaint (historic?) neighborhood. Clean and modern decor with nice outdoor seating area. Scent of freshly made waffle cones draws you in. We were there on a Sunday late afternoon-no line. Now for the ice cream: unusual, delicious, flavors and they encourage patrons to try as many as they'd like! The two of... More
