Wow! We were forewarned about the crowds. During a recent 3 day visit to Nashville, we drove by this spot in the east side every day. And every day, the line snaked outside to the curb.
After dinner on our final night, we decided to grab some ice cream. Although this corner of restaurants and hip custom shops had what appeared to be ample parking, the sheer energy of the retail sites meant we had to drive around for 5 minutes to wait for a spot to open up. But it was worth it as was the 15 minute line wait.
Jeni's serves ice cream and yogurt. Some sodas and cookies. No food. So I would not classify this as a restaurant. There were at least 10 staff behind the counter, working in unison with the crowd. Nice touch by offering small samples of your choice to anyone who wanted. I tried and chose a 3 cup of the Savannah Buttermint, Wildberry lavender, brown butter almond brittle. Ridiculously good! They looked like small amounts but two of us split the cup and felt satisfied. $6.00 for 3 scoops a little on the high side but Dairy Queen crap is about $4 so a pretty good offering for artisan ice cream (or "Art is an ice cream" as they say). Other flavors were quite off the wall but excellent.... Goat cheese and cherries (surprisingly good), pineapple upside down cake and perhaps another 25 varieties.
On a hot day/night, neat place to cool of in East Nashville.
