We’re glad Jeni’s has so many locations in Chicago, since the ice cream here is outstanding. It’s rich and creamy, with excellent mix-ins (plus, everything is made from scratch). On top of all that, the people behind the counter are incredibly patient - they will stand there while you try every single flavor without acting as annoyed as they have every right to be.
