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.

Awesome!

Lots of unique flavors and they encourage you to taste try all that you want. Hard decisions. I settled on Reisling Poached Pear Sorbet, Whiskey & Pecans, and Goat Cheese with Red Cherries. They served small scoops and they were worth every penny. LOVED!

Jeni's icecream had some really unique and well thought out flavors. We tried the Goat chess ice cream (my favorite), Salted caramel, whiskey pecan and some berry ice cream. They were all unique and tasted yummy!!

We have always had Mike's when we are in town, but on our last visit we decided we needed to compare! Jeni's service is excellent they let you try everything until you decide which is/are the perfect flavor(s) for you. There are so many delicious unique flavors to choose from, and none if them disappoint!

Went on a Saturday Night and the shop was busy, as we expected. Got the Buckeye State and Brown Butter Almond Brittle. Ice cream is good. Wouldnt say it is the best I had or even in the top 10. Glad I tried the ice cream, but doesnt live up to the hype.

Stop by Jeni's for a wonderful array of delicious ice cream flavors. Its hard to choose just one because they are so tasty. There will be a line because anything that good is worth waiting for.

The nearly constant line out the door hints of the cool treasures you'll find inside. If you can get away from work or play, mid afternoon is a good time for no line. Service is always courteous and helpful. Apparently Jeni’s started in O-hi-o. All I can say is O-my-o. I’m a die-hard fan of Berkey Creamery (at arch-rival PSU.... More

and crazy delicious~ I cannot even remember what I had! There were six of us and we all shared. We had just had dinner and headed straight there. I was so overwhelmed by the presentation menu and service. Great product, worth the trip from anywhere!

Went in on a nice summer day to try this place out after walking around the area. For ice cream in Nashville, I would say it is top notch but it isn't super (See Etch's homemade ice cream for that" I can't fault them though as they are setup for faster service and the selection was awesome. I enjoyed it... More
