My family and I visited Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams during a brief visit to Nashville, looking for a good place for dessert. We were not disappointed. Jeni's was awesome. The staff were very friendly and helpful, allowing us to sample as many of the ice creams as we wanted to see which was our favorite. There are several eclectic flavors... More

We stopped by Jeni's at the Nashville Famer's Market. Never having Jeni's before, the staff person explained that a small order came with 2 flavours, and recommended another flavour to go with my first choice - I appreciated the suggestion, especially after tasting the two together. We didn't make it back to Jeni's during our trip, and I wished we... More

Top quality ice cream with homemade whipped cream. Need I say more? Salted caramel and the dark chocolate ice cream hit the spot!

I love the flavors available at Jeni's. They change frequently, but are always delicious. The staff are always happy to give samples and can also recommend pairings. Don't let the long lines discourage you; Jeni's is truly a unique ice cream experience. And for a great price!

Made this one of our first stops in Nashville, and did we get the trip started on the right foot! Great tasting ice cream, interesting favors, and nicely decorated interior (Eastland). There are places that make it all seem simple, but the experience and sum of all parts shows a great amount of work and care. Jeni's is exactly that... More

The line is usually around 15minutes and the ice cream is expensive, but it is sooo worth it! Just two scoops or the small is enough because the ice cream is so rich, but you will have a hard time picking two flavors. Ask to try a few flavors in order to taste more because there are so many awesome,... More

This place has great ice cream. Unique flavors that are creamy and delicious. The staff is friendly and they let you try flavors to your hearts content. That's one of the reasons for the long lines. The other is it's overwhelming popularity. Though they serve great ice cream with great service the price is a bit high and the portions... More

Jeni's makes ice cream a truly special treat. Definitely the best ice cream in Nashville and far superior to the national ice cream chains. Jeni's cones are freshly baked and wonderfully flavored. Be sure to try at least two ice cream flavors, especially if you're into the unique blends.

I was with a friend and we decided, after passing by the place, we wanted to cool off with some ice cream. We traveled about three blocks and turned around. When we got back the line was wrapped down the parking lot so we knew it had to be good. Looking at the menu didn't help because of the MANY... More

We have been to Jenni's several times. The quality of the ice cream here is extraordinary it is a little pricey but then again you're paying for quality they do have flavors that you might typically see in an ice cream shop but the vast majority of their flavors or totally something you would not think about if you're looking...

Description
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.
