My boyfriend and I visited after having dinner down the street. It was busy for a Saturday night!! We barely found seats. There was limited outdoor seating but that was occupied as well on a Saturday night. I wasn't impressed with the ice cream flavors...More

I got a small waffle cone at Jeni's after lunch. The waffle cone was very crunchy . The ice cream flavors were different than you would normally find at a local ice cream shop. I had the chocolate ice cream and it was pretty rich....More

Jeni's came highly recommended by our concierge. It did not disappoint. Food (5/5) - While the ice cream flavors were limited, they were each exceptional. Most noteworthy was the salted caramel, creamy chocolate. Service (4/5) - The young ladies serving were very polite and courteous...More

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.
