You don’t come to Brooklyn Farmacy for a scoop of vanilla on a sugar cone. You come to this soda fountain in Carroll Gardens for an embarrassingly large ice cream sundae with pretzel rods sticking out of its sides. And even though you’ll be eating it out of a large to-go cup instead of a glass dessert bowl this summer, the ice cream base of each sundae here will still give you a better understanding of what “velvety” really means.
