Description: 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.

“If you love quality flavors over quantity...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

Some of the best ice cream around! Flavors are rich enough to justify a smaller portion size than you'll receive at other generic ice cream shops. Some of my current favorites are brambleberry crisp, brown butter almond brittle, goat cheese and roasted cherries. Actually, I've never had a bad flavor.

I've had Jeni's original cookbook for several years and also recommend it! You'll also have a better appreciate for what goes into this ice cream.

“DELICIOUS TREAT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

We stopped here on a hot Sunday afternoon and it was the perfect ice cream treat. The flavors were very unique and fun and we got to try out several samples before making a choice. It's a little pricey, but if you love an out-of-the-ordinary ice cream treat, this is a must stop place! (my favorite flavor was the goat cheese with cherries - soooo sweet and creamy!)

“Perfect for True Ice Cream Lovers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

Unbelievable ice cream. They have unique flavors and will let you try a whole bunch of them! If you're a chocolate lover I highly recommend the Askinosie Dark Milk Chocolate. They also have amazing ice cream sandwiches made from macarons!

“Every tourist should try this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

I mean, certainly, all the locals know that Jeni's is something special.. in terms of what they have done with ice cream. You will come here and wish there was a place like this in your hometown. Imaginative blends of flavors, more than you can sample (we came each day for the three days we were in town), and nice assortment of toppings and sauces. Good value for the product. We had to wait in line two of the times we were there but happy to do so.

“Best ice cream ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014 via mobile

Ice cream sandwiches that are so delicious and big that they serve them on a plate with a fork. Staff was so friendly and we got to sample anything we wanted...i had the dark chocolate hazelnut ice cream sandwich that was truly the best ice cream I've ever had...don't leave Nashville without stopping here!
