Very small inside and off the main Indy roads but worth visiting. The line can be pretty long but moves quickly. Great flavor selection and ice cream is delicious!

Walk in to this former railroad depot on the Monon rail-trail and you might think the whole city is there. But, don't let the line scare you off--they move remarkably fast--and besides, it's worth whatever wait you might have! I'm a chocolate fanatic and Chocolate ChooChoo is by far my favorite. I mean, dark chocolate, fudge chunks and all. There's... More

I'm a HUGE ice cream fan so was very disappointed in this ice cream. Got the black raspberry with chocolate bits. Flavor was off, portions small and it was expensive. Will not go back.

BRICS is located right on Indy's metropolitan Rails-to-Trails recreational path, The Monon. It's a favorite for families out walking, couples on bikes, and young professionals out for their run! Comfortable and casual, come-as-you-are, BRICS has the best ice cream in town! BRICS-Broad Ripple Ice Cream Station - in what will remind you of a railroad car- a nod to the... More

The ice cream flavors vary from sweet overload to fruity: they even have vegan ice cream. Their protions are very generous. Can get very busy on a hot day, but worth the wait.

Coolest ice cream place I've been to. Right on the Monon Trail and close by to Broad Ripple restaurants. You skip desert at the restaurant and go to BRICS. Great ice cream, great atmosphere - you can't go wrong.
