Jeni's has some unusual ice cream flavours. They let you taste before you decide on what you want and that's a great thing. My favourites are wildberry lavender, blackcat espresso and the gooey butter cake. The Thai curry pumpkin was out of this world but unfortunately, it is seasonal. Very reasonable prices. Don't forget to visit this place if you... More

A good selection of amazing unusual flavors. Definitely pricey, but very good, which explains the long lines so much of the year. We got lucky in March and didn't have to wait.

This is truly exceptional ice cream with some really great flavors. Wherever I travel I like to find one of the most interesting and tasty ice creams available and this place has been added to my list. There is usually a line (and that tells you it is good) but they serve it up fast. For a "single" you actually... More

Worth the wait in line! So so so good. Browned Butter Almond Brittle, Vanilla (more of a floral but soooo good), double chocolate, milky chocolate, berry crumble, and Super Moon. You cannot choose wrong here.

I spent a week in Nashville and visited Jeni's twice. The sundaes were delish! We liked Jeni's so much I bought one of her cookbooks. I wish there was a location in Toronto!

wine and cheese made in your ice cream no problem, whiskey pecan ice cream sure why not, flavors for the kids yes they have them too. pay 12.00 a pint you bet if not more. A hipster ice cream spot but I will take out of town guests here as you can't find this sort of ice cream just anywhere,... More

Luckily, I live in Nashville and we have three locations but, the east Nashville location is my favorite. The staff is always nice and well informed about the flavors. Today I had their double sundae for the first time. I'm speechless( doesn't happen a lot)!! I will be getting a sundae from this day forward. Amazing!!

I randomly purchased a small container of this nectar of the Gods from the SouthernMarketplace, after a meal at The Southern restaurant.....Salted Caramel ......what a find! Ice cream perfection! The next day we sought out their location within the Nashville Farmers Market. I'm from Texas and we love our Blue Bell, but Jeni's takes ice cream to another level. Great... More

Clever flavors that taste AMAZING!! Fresh ingredients and attention to quality make the ice cream at Jeni's SPLENDID as the name suggests! As a visitor to Nashville, I was delighted when business associate suggested we have "dessert" at Jeni's!. Love Ice Cream? You will LOVE Jeni's!

We decided to open our first full-size scoop shop in Nashville in June, 2011 in the East Nashville neighborhood for many reasons, but mainly because the place reminded us so much of our scrappy roots. East Nashville, home to cyclists and pedestrians, families and urban farmers, artists and musicians of all stripes, and do-it-yourself bar and restaurant owners, is one of our favorites places in the country. Since we've been in East Nashville, we've been able to cultivate partnerships with folks such as Don Henry, who grows strawberries for us to make the perennial favorite Roasted Strawberry Buttermilk, as well as the good people at Yazoo Brewing Company, who supplies Yazoo Sue porter for the year-round ice cream Yazoo Sue with Rosemary Bar Nuts. There's a fantastic creative community and overall vibe throughout Nashville-especially in East Nashville.
