Our third Chicago shop is located in Lincoln Park just off the Brown Line on Armitage Avenue. Here you’ll find the traditional Jeni’s experience—friendly service inside a welcoming space—but with a slight twist. To get to the scoop shop, enter through Foxtrot, the curated online and brick-and-mortar grocer.
In addition to serving exceptional ice creams throughout the day, we’re featuring something new on the menu here: Street Waffles. Savory and yeast-raised, we bake them on a very hot iron, which produces a cruller-like interior—custardy, yummy, CREAMY!—and then serve them glazed (vanilla bean or salted maple) and wrapped in paper, perfect to walk and eat.
Come in the morning, grab a seat at the counter, and enjoy a waffle with some Intelligentsia Coffee or orange juice. And then stop by later for a cone or pint to go and stroll the historic tree-lined neighborhood and boutiques—Warby Parker, Bonobos, Marine Layer, and more, are just down the street.

Iron Born, Feather Light
These are Jeni’s waffles, inspired by a very old American recipe (Fannie Farmer’s from the 1896 Boston Cooking-School Cook Book), modded and tweaked in her kitchens over years. Being yeast raised and allowed to rise overnight, they have all the featherlight air and savory flavor that comes with time. And then we bake them on a very hot iron which produces a cruller-like interior. At our Armitage scoop shop, you’ll find our waffles glazed (vanilla bean or salted maple) and wrapped in paper, perfect to walk and eat. We call them Street Waffles.
