Jeni’s Ice Creams Starts Scooping in Old Town

Nighttime temperatures may be hitting the freezing mark, but that hasn’t stopped Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams from opening at 102 S. Patrick Street in Old Town.

The restaurant opened this past Wednesday (Nov. 13) in the former Misha’s Coffee space, while the coffee shop has moved down the block to 907 King Street.

The ice cream shop was not particularly crowded as of this morning — which, granted, is not peak ice-cream hours — but Twitter was abuzz with excitement.

Jeni’s is an Ohio-based artisan ice cream producer with a cult following and a chain of about three dozen stores nationwide. It advertises that it uses no artificial flavors or colors, and has dairy-free options available.

In addition to ice cream, the shop carries assorted Jeni’s related books and paraphernalia.
