Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, in the later part of 2014, began introducing its artisan ice cream to Los Angeles via pop-ups and an ice cream truck. After much success with Jeni’s Street Treats Truck nationwide and brick-and-mortar stores in the east and midwest, this past weekend the team from Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams opened their much awaited, brick-and-mortar location in the Los Feliz area!
Being their first shop west of the Mississippi, the loyal fan base that had been faithful members of their pint-of-the-month club and visitors to the specialty grocery stores that stock pints of the ice cream or simply stalking the brand with hopes that a shop would someday make its way to the west, flocked to the grand opening on Friday.
Eager foodies and ice cream lovers waiting in a line that wrapped around the block, for nearly 2-hours, as the sun set over the beautiful Los Feliz neighborhood. Was it worth the wait for this hand-crafted, creamy, bold and quirky ice cream? The consensus is… ABSOLUTELY!
The interior design of the shop is very much tailored to the feel and vibe of the area and perfect for photo obsessed foodies. The decorative tile floors, clean and modern marble counter tops with wooden accents and black chalkboard menu all make for the perfect background for any great photo.
From brown butter almond brittle, lime cardamon buttermilk frozen yogurt, to the milkiest chocolate in the world, if you’re looking to get a scoop of their distinct and bold flavors, visit the shop on the corner of Hillhurst & Clarissa from 11am to 11pm daily.
