I had the best summer "new" flavor, Roasted Strawberry Buttermilk. It was delicious. I also taste tested the Churro flavor and it was to die for as well. Jeni's is a legend in Ohio so I was happy to step in and have a few scoops to check it out.

This fun ice cream shop offers flavors you won't find elsewhere. You get 2 small scoops with your order so be adventuresome with your choices.

Ice cream doesn't get any better than this super premium stuff. The vanilla even is exciting! Great selection of interesting flavors, and not a bad one in the bunch.

This is a very very small shop with just a window to order at no store to enter into. There are limited flavors here and limited choices. When hubby and I stopped there were 6 flavors to choose from and no ice cream sandwiches available here. I enjoyed my ice cream but wont be back to any of the Jeni's... More

Jeni's is local success story and has a loyal following. Their product is well-made but expensive, with lots of crazy flavors (too crazy). Maybe hipsters used to blowing $10 a day on Starbucks are OK paying $12 a pint but not me. The other local chain, Graeter's, is a far better value and is creamier in my opinion.

This is by far a favorite dessert-- fun ice cream with a twist. I love their new flavors-- mint chocolate chip and Black White cookie.

I love Jeni's and have been to many locations in Columbus. I was in the German Village area and was in the mood for ice cream, Google brought me to this location only to find it is closed for the season:( I am still rating it highly because the ice cream at other locations I've been to is really good,...

If you like ice cream, you have to try this place. All the ice cream is seasonal and organic. You get some strange flavors but they are all good. Lines can be long because everyone wants to sample every flavor. This isn't UDF so expect to pay a premium for premium ice cream. I can't afford to eat here all... More

Closed for the season.

The 91-square-feet "Mini Jeni's", which opened in April, 2011, occupies a former barber shop next to the Brown Bag Deli. It's just steps from Schiller Park, a jewel of the German Village neighborhood, which is on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. The walk-up-one of our two seasonal shops-attracts a steady flow of foot traffic and is open from April through October and includes plenty of patio seating to enjoy whatever flavor suits you. Note: This location has outdoor seating only and a limited menu.
