If you prepared to queue then do it! It opened at noon and when we got there at 12:30 there was a major queue. It was a very hot day in Brooklyn so I do understand everybody thought the same thing. It is not cheap...More

This place seems a bit pricey and no doubt charges a it more because of its reputation but the ice cream was fantastic. Location is ideal, A short walk from the Brooklyn Bridge. Well worth it.

Enjoyed the ice cream (coffee), but pricing a bit high and the place is very small inside, so you'll have to be lucky to get a small table. Still worth a visit in you're in the area

This is a positive review however, with the name 'Brooklyn Ice cream Factory' I was expecting a little more in terms of the size of the building as it's actually quite small inside but maybe that's my fault. Plenty of flavour choices/cones, tasty ice cream...More
