Sure there are other great ice creams, some perhaps with similar quality, but none with the variety of exotic and unique flavors identifies with Nashville's character ---like Bourbon types. Great restaurants in the cool area away from Downtown with fine shopping that make Jeni's a rational crescendo----Enjoy!

GREAT ice creams in many unusual favors & unexpected combinations...save room for dessert!! In the 12th street south area with many good restaurants and a few trendy shops, fun to walk around.

This place had a line out the door on a busy thursday night. The line moved very quickly. The employees were very pleasant and offered multiple samples. There are some unique flavor offerings. I sampled the lavender one which I thought would taste weird but it was light and delicious. Too bad I had already ordered another flavor. The black... More

We stopped in here after a concert, based on the #1 trip advisor rating and we weren't disappointed! At first, I was skeptical because of the unique flavors but as soon as I tasted a few flavors (the very friendly employees give you unlimited tastes!) I was sold. We may go back tomorrow for seconds:)

I had 2 half scoops (cream/vanilla bean) in a waffle cone, and my wife had the gooey butter sundae. The food was extremely good, and the staff was very friendly. There was a line, but it moved pretty quickly. It was very good, but it was $14 for the small amount we got and parking is not free. It's tough... More

We went to the one in the Farmer's Market, which is a cool place to visit in itself. I had the salted caramel and almond brown butter brittle...to die for! My daughter had the Wildberry Lavendar, which was so, so good. This is a great afternoon treat!

The ice cream at this shop was unique and delicious. We were able to try a few different kinds before making our selection. The workers were very helpful in pairing up flavors and making suggestions. My only complaint is that the amount of ice cream you get should be larger for the price.

My wife and I decided to grab some ice cream before heading back to the hotel for the night. Parking was next to impossible to find, but once we did we walked to Jeni's, where there was a line out the door. My wife got the Caramel Corn Sundae, which was in her opinion overly rich with butter flavor from... More

Popcorn ice cream. Do not knock it til you try it! REAL ice cream in a cute shop in the heart of 12 South. So many flavors you won't want to limit yourself to just one!

We waited in line for 10-15 minutes. The ice cream was good with intriguing flavors. It was fun to sample a few and I ended up getting pistachio and vanilla bean and my husband went with the dark chocolate and vanilla. We were both happy with our choices but $6 for 2 small scoops was a bit steep.
