Description: We decided to open our first full-size scoop shop in Nashville in June, 2011 in the East Nashville neighborhood for many reasons, but mainly because the place reminded us so much of our scrappy roots. East Nashville, home to cyclists and pedestrians, families and urban farmers, artists and musicians of all stripes, and do-it-yourself bar and restaurant owners, is one of our favorites places in the country. Since we've been in East Nashville, we've been able to cultivate partnerships with folks such as Don Henry, who grows strawberries for us to make the perennial favorite Roasted Strawberry Buttermilk, as well as the good people at Yazoo Brewing Company, who supplies Yazoo Sue porter for the year-round ice cream Yazoo Sue with Rosemary Bar Nuts. There's a fantastic creative community and overall vibe throughout Nashville-especially in East Nashville.

This was our first time at Jeni's but we will definitely go back. Everyone in our party (including the pickiest of eaters) was able to find a favorite flavor. The seating areas were clean and everyone was friendly. If you enjoy deliciousness, you don't want to miss this!

“Innovative Flavors”
Reviewed October 13, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I've been to several Jeni's before this one (mostly in Ohio). As usual, great innovative flavors. But I especially loved this location as it had the most flavors in one place I've seen. Great selection! And friendly service.

“Great Ice Cream”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

TA doesn't lie, this stuff is great. I didn't make it into the shop, but they had a food truck at the SouthernGround Music and Food festival, and we tried a 3 scoop with Salted Carmel, Buttermilk Strawberry, and some Whiskey flavor. All three were GREAT!!

So helpful! We tried a myriad of flavors and left with smiles on our faces and our collective sweet tooth satiated.

“Super Great Ice Cream”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

The first time we discovered Jeni's, we had ice cream there three times in one week!! Is it good? For my money, it's the best ice cream around. If you like coffee ice cream, nobody does it better than Jeni's. Whenever we're in East Nashville, we always get a Jeni's ice cream. Delicious.
