Cookie Butter!

2023 UPDATE:
I’ve returned a couple of times since last year and the service has much improved!

This is a cute little ice creamery. I tried the vegan Birthday Cake and the vegan Cookie Butter. That Cookie Butter was excellent! Made me want to take home the entire scoop bucket. 10/10 for that vegan ice cream flavor! They had a nice selection of vegan options to chose from.

Service was 1-star. I just had a horrible experience with the kid that was "helping" me the night I went. Just the classic more interested in socializing with their coworkers/friends than assisting customers. And any request feels like an annoyance.

However, the next time I'm in Indy, I'll be back looking for more vegan cookie butter!

Dairy Free and Nut Free Cases

We like this ice cream because they have a dairy free and also nut free case which is wonderful for allergies. However all the workers are young and don't seem to be well trained on allergies/dietary restrictions. We had to tell them to switch gloves and use new scoops for our ice cream. We haven't had any allergic reactions and feel like it seems safer than other locations because of the separate cases, but there is always a higher risk when staff are not trained on allergies and at keeping cases that are meant to be separate safe.

Pros: Separate cases for food allergies, You can order from outside & lots of outside seats, Allowed to try flavors before buying

Cons: Staff didn't seem to have allergy protocol

Few, but great vegan options

A great place to go. Nice ice cream parlor like old times. Cozy and even has a fireplace indoors with cute ice breaker/conversation starter games on each table.

The vegan ice cream menu rotates, so sometimes you might see different flavors each time you go. I personally love the cookies and cream flavor most. They have options to use in a cone or a cup. They even have gluten free cones if you need.

Pros: Nice family friendly environment, Good serving size amount, Fair enough vegan flavors

Cute place!

This place was adorable and had a lot of options for vegans, some drinks too! The ice cream was very light and refreshing. I had the apple and cookie butter flavors and a matcha latte. The scoops were a little on the small side for the price but yummy nonetheless.

Pros: Lots of options, Nice vibes, Friendly staff

Cons: A little pricey

Vegan Ice Cream!

BRICS has just recently started serving vegan ice cream. They usually have 2-3 vegan cream flavors, plus a sorbet or two.

Years ago BRICS only served Turtle Mountain brand ice cream (okay, but kind of silly as it kills the ice cream shop experience when they pull out a little of grocery store ice cream pint and charge $4 for a scoop).

While not vegan, it is pretty nice that my vegan wife has something to eat if we go.

Pros: Vegan ice cream served proper, Location, Hours

Cons: Vegan ice cream costs a little extra
