As many people from Columbus will tell you, Jeni's is very best that Columbus has to offer. On par or better than any ice cream you can find anywhere.

This is, hands down, the best ice cream in the world. Not only is it creamy and luscious, but the flavors are far-and-away, the most unique, unexpected and perfect combinations. Some of my personal favorites are the toasted coconut, bergamot, whiskey and pecan, and askinosie dark chocolate. Most things are supplied local-ish, such as Snowville creamery near Athens, Ohio, OYO... More

I've stopped here many a time but have never written a review. This was our dessert stop on our way home from dinner. I had 2 scoops, 1 of salty caramel (fave!) and 1 of sweet corn and rasperries. I've also had her pistachio and honey which is awesome. They let you try a bite before you buy so I... More

I tried several flavors before buying (they allow you to taste for free) I didn't like most of the flavors I tried. Loved the chocolate and vanilla. Those were amazing.

This was our last stop during the gallery hop and it was 10:30 pm...the line was out the door, around the corner, and down the street. I couldn't believe it! The prices are comparable to Coldstone and the ice cream is very good. I don't know if I would wait that long again for ice cream!

I contacted Jeni's for an ice cream donation last week to ask for an Ice Cream donation for a group 10-14 special needs students that I teach in Gahanna, OH.

I cannot say enough good things about Jeni's Ice Cream! We're fortunate to have a Jeni's in downtown Powell, very close to home - although that might actually be a bad thing in terms of weight control ... ;-) Jeni's creates ice creams flavors that I've never heard of ANYWHERE. EVER. And every ingredient is sourced right here in Ohio.... More

So good. Also had the whiskey and pecan which was really good. Love this place. It is a bit pricey, two scoops for $4.50 in a cup but ice cream fans will love this yummy place.

In planning our road trip route from Chicago to Virginia, we wanted to shake up the drive somewhat. So we took the usual direct route on the way there, mostly 80/90 and then dropping down towards DC. The way home, however, we decided driving thru West Virginia would be a little more scenic and a friend who is a Columbus... More

Description
Since August 2007, we've been a fixture in the heart of the Short North Arts District, an eclectic neighborhood of bars, galleries, antique stores, vintage clothing shops, boutiques, and restaurants. On Gallery Hop nights (the first Saturday of each month) offer the most boisterous scenes, but every day and evening we're serving trios, sundaes, and scoops at a steady pace to locals and visitors from around the world.
