Stopped here after dinner. Its right along the Monon Trail. Looks like an old railroad depot building. Free samples of most of their stuff. Good ice cream, lots of flavors/choices. Serving sizes are big! They also had shakes and other items besides ice cream.

One of the coolest local places ever! I was here in February and it was actually quite gorgeous outside and a balmy 65 degrees! Loved the atmosphere, how the trim on the house was painted differently and inside was cozy and warm. The wait was insane, but even that didn't take away from the experience. Fun to watch how people... More

I had another wonderful experience at BRICS. The ice cream is great. I went with peppermint patty last night and it was decadent. I usually get the whistle stop, espresso ice cream, but it was a nice change.

Brics Ice Cream in Broad Ripple was an epicurean delight. We had several samples and settled on chocolate choo choo. My husband had the waffle cone and I had a scoop in the glass dish. The ice cream was the richest we have ever tasted. When you're in Indianapolis please stop at BRICS - Broad Ripple Ice Cream Station.

This little shop on the Monon Trail has great ice cream and friendly staff. They offered us water and a treat for our dog. Enjoyed the mint chocolate chip.

You can tell that this frozen dairy goodness is made carefully and made with love. It's a little expensive, but there is always something to try and it's in a railcar!

This is a cute little ice cream shop on the Monan Trail. They have a nice choice of flavors including a number of vegan choices. The single scoop is huge! You can try samples of the flavors. I ask for water and they provided a nice to go cup with ice and water. They also bring glasses to your table... More

We stopped here after looking for a good local ice cream place and we were not disappointed. The scoops are HUGE and the price is very low. We went on a Sunday evening and the place was packed but they are so efficient that the wait was minimal. They have a worker going around periodically offering free water as well... More
