This is the best dairy free ice cream I’ve had in my life. Lemon shortbread or something. Worth it twenty thousand times over. Also the person who made my cone had the most angelic smile. Plus the decor just pops with bold colors balanced by spacious brightness. Love.

If one ponders for a brief moment, after finishing the Mexican Chocolate ice cream at Jeni’s Splendid, the prospect of going back to the counter and ordering a pint of the stuff, one would not be alone. I too, felt the spicy, chocolatey bliss drawing me like a moth to flame. There are worse things my friends, than that magnetic pull. Keep calm and dairy on!

I really enjoyed the ambiance and service at Jenis. The flavors were unique and had good taste without being overly sweet or false tasting. The presentation is also lovely and seems like a good value for a trio of flavors.

Delicious ice cream and amazing waffle cones! Great outdoor seating. Hoping for a bit more of ice cream in each scoop- however, the flavors are amazing. The newest Wedding Cake flavor is the perfect summertime treat!

The staff was super friendly and nice. The other customers were chatty and I felt comfortable joking along side them. Plus the ice cream is really yummy too!

Had a trio in a waffle bowl with Brambleberry, gooey cake and salty caramel. Ice cream was decent but didn't feel fresh or soft. The atmosphere of the place is good though. Hopefully they can improve the ice cream a little.

Parking is limited and a one way traffic pattern. This establishment was very clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful when it comes to narrowing down flavors. Good place for ice cream date. Order: Single (2 flavors) in a waffle cone

First off the smell is intense as soon as you walk through the door. The flavors are out of this world. I did get the butterscotch popcorn, Brambleberry Crisp, and golden nectar. Change your life. Cold stone what?

Love this place! First, let's talk about the dairy free options. There are some fabulous flavors to pick from! Texas Sheet Cake, caramel pecan sticky buns, and so many more! I have a friend who is dairy free and she was so excited by the choices she had to pick from. Then there are their regular flavors and they keep a rotating menu of delicious flavors! Cinnamon bun, caramel popcorn, buttermilk strawberry and many more! This ice cream shop is an amazing little shop with absolutely delicious flavors to chose from! I highly suggest giving them a visit!

Friendly staff, great ice cream flavors and waffle cones.🍦Highly recommend the Cold Brew with Coconut Cream flavor (Dairy Free) it’s the best vegan ice cream I’ve tried ever.

I’ve tired just about every flavor they have and they are all so good. My favorite flavors are the Sweet Cream Biscuits and Peach Jam, Salty Caramel, and Savannah Buttermint! They are always adding new flavors and their homemade waffle cones are so good!

My favorite ice cream shop is now in Durham!! If you are dairy-free, they have 4 options for you. If not, you have several options to choose from. All that I tried are delicious! Here I have the cold brew with coconut cream, Texas sheet cake, and Caramel Pecan Sticky bun.

Had never heard of Jeni’s until they opened and everyone was was talking about it! Finally went to try it and it was SOOOOO good! The ice cream is buttery and rich, not too heavy nor sweet. I’m happy to have them opened so close to home and they’re hours are AWESOME! Who doesn’t want ice cream at 10PM ? I’m excited to try all the other flavors 😁

Pretty good ice cream. Good flavor selection. Nice location. Fairly pricey for the portions, though.

My wife and I were able to visit on a weekday afternoon, and enjoyed four scoops between us. All four were magnificent, and left us wanting another trip back. The counter staff were incredibly nice and understanding in our want to sample every flavor. Simply going for the smell of fresh waffle cones being made is enough! I’ll be going back in the next week to try and get through the flavors I missed the first time.
