We planned our trip with the incentive of Jeni’s store being in the city. We went on an off time, and was shocked there was no line. Still the best ice cream to date for us.

The hype is all true -- the ice cream here is amazing. The service is very friendly and helpful. Try the flight -- three scoopes and some waffle cone. Completely delicious.

Ice cream is a special treat for me, and this was the most amazing ice cream I have ever eaten. Splendid doesn't begin to describe it.

I have never tasted ice cream sooo good, creamy and smooth. This was my first visit and if I lived in the city, I would go back very often. There were so many varieties of ice cream, sorbets, and frozen yogurts to choose from that...More

King Street-Charleston's main artery of restaurants, bars, and boutiques-is home to our first scoop shop in South Carolina. Located in the heart of "Upper King" (the section of King Street north of Calhoun Street) in the Cannonborough neighborhood, our shop is in great company with many renowned restaurants, including The Ordinary seafood hall and oyster bar, Indaco (the fabulous rustic Italian spot), and The Macintosh (a recent James Beard Award nominee for best new restaurant and best chef). The pedestrian-friendly area is also home to many independently-owned bars, bakeries, and shops, and you'll find our shop right between two neighbors we know you'll also want to visit during your trip to this historic and progressive coastal city: Charleston Distillery and Stars Roof Top & Grill Room.
