The Sundae Morning at The Evergreen Ice Cream Co.
Bushwick

Burgeoning Bushwick gets its first ice cream parlor, serving small-batch frozen treats from Greenpoint's Phin & Phebes and Hudson Valley creamery Jane's, as well as waffle cones hand-rolled in the shop. Look for rotating flavors like Vietnamese Coffee, Dark Chocolate Salty Caramel and Sweet Cream with Blueberry-Lemon Cookies, sold by the scoop, in sundaes or in floats. Along with the frozen treats, owner Francisco Garcia sources beverages locally: Specialty sodas are made with Gomberg Seltzer and P&H Soda Co. syrups, and he shops fellow local businesses Harney & Sons and Porto Rico Importing Co. for his teas and coffees. In the warm-weather seasons, Garcia doles out house-made paletas (Latin-American fruit Popsicles) from the shop's 120-year-old salvaged counter. Sepia-stained photos of children enjoying cones decorate the exposed-brick walls, while a stand-up piano set with Frank Sinatra vinyl records claims a corner of the room.
