If the Heavens have ice cream they got it from Jeni's. You can sample any flavor and despite that you will choose one possibly two or more. It's that good. The staff is patient, friendly and helpful.

After Jeni's opened oh so many years ago, every other icrecream place has become barely tolerable! What an absolute treasure; and to think it started in little ol' Columbus!

My wife and I stopped by in Columbus to visit family and my cousin insisted we try Jeni's ice cream. Well we were pleasantly surprised. My cousin was bent double laughing at my many different facial expressions when trying the different flavours. Would we recommend to others?

This is by far my favorite icecream shop! Jeni's has so many delicious flavors to pick from and they are always willing to give you a sample until you decide on which flavor to buy.

Jeni's is a staple with my wife and I after we visit almost any restaurant in the Short North. The best artisanal ice cream in Cbus!

The flavors are nothing like what you see at a typical ice cream shop. I experienced the espresso and the pear Reisling. They were both delicious, and it made for a perfect dessert after some Italian food. Will definitely be going back!

Took my college student on a shopping trip and there was a Jeni's nearby. Consistent flavor throughout each spoonful. Multiple options and combinations as well limited edition flavors. They also offered prepackaged quarts/pints. Anyone that loves ice cream will love this place.

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.
