Not sure what more to say about this place, it's just EPIC ice cream made with love. The flavor combinations are so creative and the flavors really stand out. The staff was super friendly and knew a lot about the flavor combinations and how the ice cream was made by hand. They have the most adorable tiny metal spoons and... More

A friend who had spent much more time in Columbus than I, suggested we take a trip to get some ice cream. Initially I wasn't particularly interested because I was full from dinner and wasn't in the mood for ice cream. When we pulled up there was a line around the corner, which made me more interested in this place.... More

Ok this is some darn good ice cream. Interesting flavors and they offer a taste. So the scoops are not huge and the prices a bit high but a nice treat.

I had a trio of dark chocolate, vanilla bean and wait fir it - 'goat cheese and cherry'. My new absolute favorite! I can't wait to try several other exotic flavors ...Jeni thank you for turning my...

We walked several miles from downtown Columbus to Short North area just to try Jeni's Splendid IC. The smoked caramel and fruit flavors were out of sight! Rich, creamy, valid flavors, and all at a reasonable price for gourmet ice cream. There is not much room for seating so when crowded, expect to stand or find a place to sit... More

Excellent ice cream, great and interesting variety. Prices are typical for the location and gourmet selection. I would rate it a 5 if there were better seating.

Some different and interesting flavours. I visited this place around four different times in the week I was in town. I got two scoops of something different every time. You can also ask for a sample before you buy, which helps if the icecream is "butter popcorn" or Lavender or Ylang ylang. You must try this at least once. Salted... More

It was great to try a sample before your ordered The flavors are different than what you would find elsewhere. The ice cream I had was ok, didn't understand why everyone was raving about it. It was very crowded the day we were there, and the line was out the door. We have a shop in Indiana that has homemade... More

I went to this place three different times while visiting Columbus. I think that says enough. I got a waffle cone each time, but I'm sure these cold sweet confections are good in any type of serving vessel. I loved the Milky Chocolate, the Atlantic Beach Pie and the Salty Peanut Butter with Chocolate Flakes. I recommend trying something new.... More

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.
