“Awesome little ice cream shop”
Reviewed 2 August 2013

I found BRICS doing a Google search for ice cream near where were staying for the NASCAR race. I have to say BRICS is certainly "off the beaten path". Fortunately my GPS took me right there. The quality of their ice cream is really good with generous portions, but it is a little pricey. We really like the fact that they've restored a historic railroad station and given it new life. The train-related decorations are a really nice touch, as was the fact that a server came around with a tray of ice water while we were enjoying our ice cream. We'll probably end up going to BRICS each year we're visiting for the race.

“Old school ice cream shop”
Reviewed 12 July 2013 via mobile

Love the ice cream here. A little $$ but good. Right off Monon trail & at a great location. Love the outdoor seating in the summer.

“Yummy and Enormous!”
Reviewed 10 June 2013

We went here last night for the first time! It was rather delightful and has a great atmosphere! The set up is a little clustered, but worth the wait. I was glad the boyfriend ordered first and got two scoops...which turned out to be an outrageous amount of ice cream! So I ordered one scoop and it was still SO much! We will be eating here again but will share next time!

“Best place for ice cream”
Reviewed 9 June 2013

A must stop in Broad Ripple right along the Monon Trail. A little pricey but the portions are generous. Popular with all ages including pets. Forget your diet for a few minutes and enjoy the treat and atmosphere. Friendly patrons and staff.

“You have to put this on your short list...”
Reviewed 25 May 2013 via mobile

Cheery atmosphere. They use real spoons for tastes. They're happy to give you tastes. A friendly girl brought us each a glass if ice water. It was $12 for three of us and the card game for conversation starters was fun. It's a little walk from the main BroadRipple action, but totally worth it!
