Belong Cafe@Evergreen Brick works is now open!

Ever since the beginning of June when we participated in the Love Local show at Evergreen Brick works Susan and I have been waiting patiently for the Belong Cafe to open it's doors. Between having booths at the Artisan Craft Market throughout the summer to meetings with the lovely Amber to organize our Culture Days event we have watched expectantly as the Cafe started to take shape. It has been a true evolution, from occasional sightings of Brad Long inspecting the progress, to a make shift lunch station, to the Cafe finally openings its doors a few weeks ago.

To celebrate the signing of the contracts for renting the Young Welcome Centre for our 100 mile finds market/Culture Days event on October 1st, 2011, Susan and I grabbed a coffee and a treat the Belong Cafe.

The blueberry scone I had was absolutely mouth watering. I find scones can be a bit tricky, this one was perfect, nice a moist in the middle and crusty on the outside! Perfect! Susan had an oatmeal square, there was no discussion about us sharing. There was no way I was giving up any of my scone, I don't care how good her square looked, I just couldn't do it!! Add a great cup of coffee and a friendly chat with the waiting staff, it was just what we were looking for.

Cafe Hours
To Go: 8am–6pm
Cafe Kitchen: 11am–10pm
Reservations for Lunch and Dinner available.

The Belong Cafe offers local, sustainable, organic fare. Although they don't have a liquor license yet, rumor has it there is one on the way! Belong is not only a cafe but a catering service too. They pride themselves on quality preparation and beautiful presentation. They cater events as well as offering to pack a picnic you can enjoy anywhere.

Evergreen Brick works is now the perfect place to go to spend the day. On Saturdays you can visit the Farmers Market in the morning, then amble through the grounds, there is always something going on there, with the up and coming Artisan Market, the Garden shop, and now the Belong Cafe it's one of Toronto's best kept secrets!
