Local friends brought me here. Seems it's a very popular place, judging by the line out the door. Don't be deterred though it moves pretty quick. The place specializes in odd flavors. They'll let ya try whatever ya want. I went with two scoops of churro ice cream (you don't have to get all scoops the same flavor, I just... More

Having sampled the Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams in North Market and raving about it, I dragged my boyfriend to the Short North location during our visit to that neighborhood. There was a line out the door, which we joined, that moved rather quickly. All the servers were super friendly in allowing us to try whatever flavors that were available. Ultimately,... More

Trio was the way to go! Try three different flavors. Samples to find your three. Bringing my kids with me next week to show them what an old school ice cream place is.

I can't even remember them but I did get a two scoop bowl one... More

SO many different boutique flavors, and you can choose two scoops in a bowl or on a cone, same or different flavors. I opted for a bourbon salted pecan and brambleberry crisp, and both were delicious. Six of us walked in and tried different flavors, and there wasn't a single person who wasn't impressed.

The ice cream is wonderful. Full range of flavors and then some... Oddities you'd never think of putting together. I'm a die hard fan of their espresso and dark chocolate. They're heaven together in a dish. I'm still so sad they've never brought the gravel back though! Those were amazing - different little crunchy bits you could layer into a... More

Excellent spot to stop when you are visiting campus. A bit too far to walk, but a 5 minute drive by car right down High Street. Staff was courteous and helpful, lots of samples, the quality was good and the price was appropriate. Nice job guys.

Being from New England where ice cream stands are just about in every town, while staying in Columbus with my teen boys, we were told we must try Jeni's. A short walk from our hotel Crowne Plaza, we found Jeni's packed on High St. The flavors were very unique and the staff let us sample our favorites. I figured unlike... More

Since August 2007, we've been a fixture in the heart of the Short North Arts District, an eclectic neighborhood of bars, galleries, antique stores, vintage clothing shops, boutiques, and restaurants. On Gallery Hop nights (the first Saturday of each month) offer the most boisterous scenes, but every day and evening we're serving trios, sundaes, and scoops at a steady pace to locals and visitors from around the world.
