Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory is eternally touristy, but a visit is always undeniably satisfying. At $7, the coffee milkshake isn't exactly a bargain, but you'll start making excuses for it as soon as you take the first heady sip.
It's the type of thick, creamy milkshake that demands extra effort on your part. Or a spoon. Great during summer, but perhaps even better during cooler weather when things don't melt as fast. It's your classic coffee milkshake, no frills or surprises, and that's a good thing.
