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.

After dinner treat

So glad to see Jeni's re-opened ! Although their selections were limited on the night we were there, the ice cream was still delicious ! Friendly, informed staff.

My friend has raved about the Wildberry and Lavender ice cream that is served here. She was right! The ice cream is very creamy and not frozen so hard that you can barely get a spoon in it. They will gladly give you a taste before you order. Don't miss going here.

Don't miss this great place! Unique ice cream flavors; Brown Butter Almond Brittle, Root Beer, Wildberry Lavender to name a few. Friendly service. Indoor and outdoor seating. If there is a line, wait. It is worth it.

Great, different varieties of ice cream. Must try samples!! Friendly service. But keep in mind is pricey for what you get. A special trip place it is.

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!

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!
