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!

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!... read more

Seriously, you must stop here while in Nashville! They have some unique, eyebrow raising favors but you can try as many as you want!! You get to choose at least two flavors (scoops) so go for it! They serve it in a cup, sugar cone, or waffle cone. If you get it in a cup you can top it off... More

We used to buy Jeni's divine ice creams years ago at Whole Foods and was thrilled to find her products in Nashville on a recent trip. Who cares if the line is out the door…the goat cheese/cherry, the remarkable ice cream sandwiches, the salted caramel…soooo many flavorful choices!

Jeni's is the absolutely best ice cream on the planet. I love how they let you taste the ic before you choose. I love the freshly made waffle cones and I love the intense flavours packed into every scoop of ice cream goodness. Jeni's , you make my day!

Delicious ice cream with some amazingly unique flavors. Only complaint is I wanted to take home like 10 gallons after eating it!
