Description: Our latest Nashville scoop shop opened in September, 2013 in the 12 South neighborhood and is next to Josephine, a new cafe by Miranda Whitcomb Pontes, who serves Jeni's ice creams in her nearby Burger Up pub. Other Music City favorites in the area include 12 South Taproom & Grill, Katy K Designs, and denim purveyor Imogene + Willie. 12 South epitomizes what we love in a neighborhood: action. 12 South, a lively, super-cool area, includes some of the best options for enjoying yourself in Nashville.

If you are expecting to see plain chocolate, or vanilla ice cream here, think again. Lavendar, goat cheese, alcohol infused pears, cardamom, dark chocolate mint, lemon curd...that's more like what you will see at this place. Pretty good, but kind of pricey for the small amount you get.

The place is known in Nashville as having the best icecream in town, and this is absolutely justified. The only thing you have to keep in mind is that you may have to wait an hour in the line for a scoop if you decide to go there over the weekend - but it's worth it!

Jeni's had lots of fun and unusual ice cream flavors. All of the flavors i tried were delicious. It is a little expensive but it's high quality ice cream. The ladies behind the counter were very friend and the line does move quickly. A word of warning, dont park in the parking lot across from the shop. You will get... More

My husband and I drove by this place three times before we actually stopped. Every time (expect the last) there was a line out the door! At first, we thought people were crazy for waiting. And then when the line was only a few people deep, we finally went in and wow (!) that ice cream is amazing! There are... More

Why is everyone giving this place such a great rating? I'm serious. I've been 3-4 times with family. Yes, it has some unusual flavors but I don't think they are worth $5 for a scoop about the size of a ping pong ball or smaller. I'm not talking about quantity above quality. None of the scoops I had were outstanding.... More

What can I say? They have great ice cream and where there is great ice cream you will find long lines. :) The line moves quickly though and the servers are really friendly, allowing you to try all those odd combinations. Once you discover your favorite, you will be back.

This was my first visit. It was a November Saturday afternoon and the line was out the door and down the street. I never thought that would happen in a non-summer month but I was wrong! Best line I ever waited in. The ice cream was divine! I had a scoop of the lime, cardamom, buttermilk yogurt and a scoop... More

Nothing beats home made ice cream until you've tried this place! So many unique flavor combos and they let you taste any one you want. Bourbon, herbs and more blended well with a few we tried. Not for the shy or non adventurous type. Be prepared to stand in line though. It's a worthwhile wait. And an ideal walk from... More

This was our first visit to Jeni's and boy do I wish we had one here at home! It's a little pricey and the scoops are a little on the small side, but i didn't miss the excess nor did i mind the price! We tried several flavors before choosing, and the staff was more than happy to let us!... More
