On what was probably the coldest day of the week, my boyfriend Benson and I decided it was a good idea to get ice cream churros at Evergreen Brick Works located alongside the DVP. The weather in Toronto is always quite bipolar, but this day in particular, it had rained, hailed, and snowed in the midst of sunny skies all at the same time. I know you’re probably thinking I’m exaggerating but trust me when I say chunks of ice were falling from the sky while it was super sunny too. But once the hail stopped, it wasn’t that bad and we were able to explore.
My boyfriend Benson suggested we try Eva’s apple pie so we got one to share between the two of us. Churros are actually my favourite thing in the whole wide world, especially when they’re stuffed with caramel, but ice cream sounded like a nice twist.
The ice cream churro was pretty good, not anything too amazing but yummy nonetheless. We had really high expectations for it since I love churros and Benson loves ice cream, but in the end, we think the two things are better off separate haha. We only came here to try this delicious treat but we ended up discovering more than we expected. Evergreen Brick Works is a huge open centre that encourages its visitors to be environmentally friendly, so there were a lot of open industrial spaces to explore and discover.
While we were walking around, we found this outdoor museum type of space where intricate lights and pieces of artwork were put on display. It featured some old train tracks, hanging emblems, enlightened maps, and awesome graffiti everywhere.
I love how these beautiful displays were covered behind thick brick walls kind of like hidden gems for the curious couple to discover. 🙂 Overall, despite the crappy weather, we had a lot of fun exploring and trying new foods. This is definitely a great place to check out if you love industrial architecture and vegan products which are available to purchase at the local shop inside. Hopefully the weather isn’t as crappy for us during future visits.
Until next time!
