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.

“Yummm!”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

My friend who graduated from Vanderbilt told me that I could not visit Nashville without visiting Jeni's. My wife and I visited the location in 12 South after dinner. There was a line wrapped outside the front door, but we were served within about 20-25 minutes. The ice cream was VERY DELICIOUS! I had the dark and milk chocolate combination with chocolate sauce.

“Best ice cream”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

This was a great find, a little out of the way but worth it. They have very unique flavors and all taste great.

“Best ice cream”
Reviewed May 28, 2014 via mobile

Felt like having ice cream at 10pm. Could only think of Jeni's. Drove 20 minutes for it. Had a trio of 'dark chocolate' 'yazoo sue with bar nuts' and 'goat cheese with red cherries'. Delicious is an understatement.

“Really unique flavors”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

The ice cream here is homemade, and they have really REALLY unique and different flavors.Such as 'wild berry lavender' and 'bangkok peanut' (which was spicy...and delicious! They were really nice and patient and let us taste several of them before making our choice. Beware that the scoops are very VERY small and very expensive! But the ice cream WAS delicious and very creamy and smooth!

“Wow the best ice cream you will find”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

The best and most diverse flavors you will find in ice cream anywhere!!! We ate dinner the night before at the Eastland Cafe and the line for Ice Cream at Jeni's was out the door all night. On our way back from Franklin we drove to Jeni's and had some fantastic ice cream before the line got too long. It's worth the wait.
