The perfect spot for something sweet in Chicago. Big menu with lots of tasty items. You can't go past the ever reliable chocolate.

It smells like homemade waffle cones when you walk in. I had a kids scoop of peach buttermilk and it was plenty for me. The flavor combo was sweet and tart, perfect. Definitely a place to try for some wonderful ice cream.

I could go into all the great and not so great ice cream places I've eaten at around the world, but I will get to the point. Jeni's has good solid ice cream. Nice variety of flavors that are creative and yet recognizable. The one's...More
