Best Ice Cream Shop

Brooklyn Farmacy


Brooklyn Farmacy manages to capture the vibe of the 50s ice cream parlor without veering too far into novelty territory the way those horribly lighted suburban chains do. It doesn’t hurt, of course, that they’ve actually set up shop in a musty old pharmacy and kept many of the original touches intact, but it also doesn’t hurt that they’re making egg creams worthy of the borough’s name, plus an assortment of classic and inventive sundaes. It’s kid-friendly if that’s your thing, but also perfect for visiting parents who maybe think you only know about bars because, let’s face it, you only know about bars.
