Best quality and variety of ice cream I've ever had! We had salty caramel and orange blossom flavors.

We found Jeni's in the North Market and were told that we had to go to a stand alone store for the entire experience. Absolutely loved the aroma of fresh waffle cones as you walk in the door. The ice cream is delicious!! I've tried the Bangkok peanut and it's incredible with a little kick. The salted peanut butter with... More

Really, its Jeni's ice cream. It sells for $10 a pint. It's worth $10 a pint. I have been many times and have yet to try a flavor that isn't delicious. My kids love it, my wife and I love it. Really like the non-traditional flavor options.

This location is wonderful and they always let you try as many flavors as you want. The fresh waffle pieces that they provide you with your ice cream is amazing. Never have a bad Jeni's flavor. Love this place.

The ice cream is purely delicious. They are generous with letting you taste various flavors. Speciality ice cream is so wonderful with the purity of the flavors and making of the ice cream. Plus it is sold in machines at the airport just in case you need a last minute scoop before boarding your plane.

Loved the North Market, and my Jenni's cone was the frosting on the cake: Goat Chese with tart cherry.!! Too bad I'm only there once a month from Upstate NY!

Jeni's typically has lines out their door at any given location, especially on hot summer days. While people swear by her ice cream, I prefer more traditional flavors and have never been blown away by any of the flavors...especially given the price. But, for those who love ice cream and are craving something different, I'd give this place a shot.... More

There's always a line at Jeni's Short North location and with good reason. The flavors are superior to anything you'll find at any other local ice creamery. And, without a doubt, this is the smoothest, creamiest ice cream around. True flavors. Flavors that are local and locally sourced. Heck, it's ice cream you feel good about eating. And the value...

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.
