Jeni's ice cream is another Columbus invention. Flavors are imitative combinations of unusual and exotic products. Salty caramel is my favorite, but the staff encourages to use their sample tastings to find your favorite.

Jeni's is a Must Stop There destination when 1. I'm anywhere close to one of her shops, 2. Out of town guests want ice cream, and/or, 3. My current refrigerator stash is low. There are plenty of locally churned ice cream options here in central Ohio. They are quite worthy of the "mmmmmthis isrealllly good" response following a first bite.... More

We didn't have to go to the main store; there's a booth in North Market serving Jeni's ice creams. They are unusual, creamy, wonderfully delicous. Makes Start With Dessert a good motto.

I like going to jeni's because the people who work there are so nice. You can try a variety of flavors via a small spoon sample. The employees are happy to tell you about Jeni's special ingredients. I have been to the one on High St. and the one at Easton. I had the same great experience at both.

This is a fave stop while in Columbus! Had a sundae one day which was delish ... the fudge was amazing! Then went another day and had dark peppermint (to die for) and salted caramel. Save your calamities for this local favorite!!

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. They also practice good hand hygiene which is so necessary in this day and age. Butter Almond Brittle, Sweet Cream Biscuits and Peach... More

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!

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.
