Jeni's ice cream is overrated, in my opinion. The prices are ridiculous and I really do not care for their outrageous flavors. I like my ice cream to taste like ice cream. If you like bizarre flavored ice cream, this is the place for you....More

Trying out all their ice cream sandwiches right now. The Molasses one is outstanding! Can't go wrong with any flavor they have. The staff is always really friendly and the shops are bright and clean!

Love the local vibe and all the unique ingredients. I'm a vanilla kind of gal, but I love all the different flavors (my favorite is the ice cream sandwiches!). So glad to see a female business owner making it a success.

Wish I was in town longer to try all the flavors Jeni's has to offer. The waffle cones are being made right before our very eyes. We were offered samples of any flavors we wanted to try. We settled on Brown Butter Almond Brittle and...More

Remember the days of creamy melt in your mouth heaven? That is Jeni's ice cream. Fun flavors, sustainable ingredients, nice staff. We had chamomile Chardonnay, wild berry lavender, salted peanut butter with chocolate flakes, and cookies and cream. Yum🍧🍨🍦

We stopped at both Jeni's locations on short north and in north market; both were exceptional. Get the ice cream trio if/when you can't make up your mind!

Jeni's ice cream is a go to for good ice cream in the "Short North". Numerous flavors are available and you can sample as many as you want. Very friendly staff who will be happy to assist you. This is the original Jeni's in Columbus....More

Open since March 2006, the shop is in a neighborhood immediately northwest of downtown Columbus populated by families, couples, children, and teenagers walking and biking to do errands, shopping in independently-owned-and-operated shops, and hanging out in lively spots like Stauf's Coffee Roaster's and Spagio. Home of the annual summer Tour de Grandview Cycling Classic, the renovated, single-screen Grandview Theatre, and the sidewalk Art Hop (last Saturday of every month), Grandview and its main artery, Grandview Avenue, is full of people just taking it all in.
