Time Out says

5 out of 5 stars

This lovingly renovated and decorated turn-of-the-century-style ice cream parlor is a visual feast, boasting a handsome tin ceiling, marble countertops and a mosaic tile floor. Luckily, the menu offers its fare share of feasting as well: beyond simple scoops and cones, its over-the-top sundaes beckon as well. The Lightning Rod is the fanciest brownie sundae we know about: crumbled dark chocolate brownies topped with scoops of coffee ice cream, plus a shot of espresso, a sprinkling of chocolate-covered espresso beans, a mountain of whipped cream and a salty pretzel rod to complement all the sweet.
