The Evergreen Ice Cream Co. (CLOSED)

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
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.
