I went to the location @Columbus Commons. What a nice treat during a break on my business trip. Darkest chocolate is not the darkest I've ever had but taste was pretty darn good. So was salted caramel. I'll be back!

We enjoyed Jeni's walk up ice cream stand in German Village area of town. We sat at the outside tables to devour our scoops. Lovely neighborhood to walk with a cup or cone. Park nearby. Does not offer a large selection but we were happy with the offerings

On my recent trip to Columbus I had Jeni's twice. The gourmet flavors were amazing. The price was a little more than I like to pay for one scoop of ice cream but the unique flavors are worth it. Can't wait to go back!

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.

Very good ice cream. This isn't your typical I've cream. Nice portions. Great flavors with different tastes.

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.
