Description: Our first Chicago scoop shop, which opened in September, 2013, is on Southport Avenue at the Brown Line. The sleek, rustic-modern shop-in the heart of the Lakeview neighborhood's family-and-pedestrian-friendly Southport Corridor-features the full line of built-from-the-ground-up ice creams (and sorbets and frozen yogurts) that Time magazine called "the best in America." Our Southport shop also offers Intelligentsia Coffee-a perfect companion to our ice creams. In fact, the best Intelligentsia-Jeni's partnership likely is at the Logan Square Intelligentsia Coffee Bar, where you can enjoy the Black Cat Shake, a mix of our Sweet cream ice cream and their Black Cat espresso.

I used to go to Jeni's in Nashville when I lived there, so I was thrilled to see Jeni's in Chicago! Great stuff!

Absolutely some of the best ice cream we have ever had. They have traditional and not so traditional but wonderful flavors. They must have twenty flavors. There waffle cones are also some of the best we have had. Perfectly made. Try as many flavors as you need to decide. Opt for a flight or two half scoops. Although, I went for two full scoops. Each scoop the size of a baseball.Cute store located just two blocks off of Halstead on Armitage. We will be regulars!!

Doesn't look like much from the outside. But the ice cream is delicious, you can find both classic flavors and weird ones. My favorite combination: darkest chocolate and goat cheese with red cherries! Yum! Be patient if there is a line, it's worth it!
