With a wide variety of flavors -- some familiar, some unique, Jeni's is a Columbus institution. Many flavors are gluten-free and are labeled as such in the scoop shops. The lines are long mostly because of all the tasting that goes on. Signature flavors are available year round other flavors are seasonal (some, like my favorite Savannah Buttermint, recur annually...

If you are going to indulge, make it Jeni's. She sources her ingredients as any super foodie would, with local and organic. Owner Jeni Britton develops the ice cream and sorbet flavors to challenge and delight her customers' taste buds. It's creativity and high quality on steroids. You can taste before your order what you love in a hand made... More

I don't think,I have ever had ice cream that is this good. Small size gives you two scoops which gives you a chance to have up to two flavors. Both times I have been here they let you sample their unusual flavors. Not the cheapest but well worth the cost as well as the calories.

A great treat while wandering around on a hot July afternoon. All types of folks enjoying great ice cream! A little short on indoor seating, but community tables worked out just fine.

My son and I stopped into Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams after seeing an outdoor sign stating "Thai Curry Pumpkin" ice cream. We had never been to any Jeni's store, and we truly enjoyed our experience here! After tasting 3 or 4 of their unique, creamy flavors, I settled on the Middle West Whiskey & Pecans, and loved every bite! My... More

I'm glad we stopped here after our visit to the art museum. The variety and creativity of the flavors is impressive, and they are liberal with the free samples. It is a little expensive for me--$20 for four smalls. You'll get flavors that you can't get anywhere else, and it is high quality.

I cannot say enough good things about this ice cream. I wish I could have sampled every flavor--the ice cream selection was unique and absolutely delicious. I especially loved the xocorosa and churro flavors together, as well as the black cat espresso and darkest chocolate combination.

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.
