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 was a great find for us while on vacation. We were looking for some icecream after leaving the children's museum for the day. We liked it so much that we returned again on the last day of our stay. Staff was very friendly. Samples were given freely. The portions were huge. They even split a single scoop into 2... More

We were staying in downtown Indianapolis. This was definitely worth the trip. The ice cream was very creamy and flavorful. We got the 'briclet' which was more than enough ice cream for us. Definitely would return if I was in the area.

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.

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!

After stopping at Three Sisters Cafe, I saw Brics and decided to stop in. I was impressed with the variety of hand scooped ice cream and was not disappointed. Brics is near Butler University and attracts a large crowd on weekends. The ice cream was creamy and one of the best I have had and I have eaten ice cream... More

Very tasty, very good ice cream creations. The staff is very efficient and very friendly. What looked to be a long wait, went very quickly. Great atmosphere for an ice cream shop in the eclectic Broad Ripple Village.

BRICS stands for Broad Ripple Ice Cream Station. It is located in the old train station that serviced the Monon Railway.It is agreat addition to Broad Ripple. Yummy ice cream, fun contemporary decor, and an awesome deck right on the Monon to people watch and take a break. Bike rack available. Fireplace inside the shop should make for a great cold weather stop, as well. But, right now, it is hot and perfect for ice cream!
