Champ's is a vegan diner and bakery in Williamsburg (that has recently opened a smaller counter in Greenpoint). They serve healthy vegan options like these chocolate chip pancakes:
Honestly, they were some of the best vegan pancakes I'd ever had. Vegan pancakes are often dry, but these weren't -- perhaps the chocolate chips helped? I mean, chocolate chips usually help.
Even the chocolate milkshake was good, even if one would not mistake it for the real thing:
Chocolatiest was the cheesecake brownie. I usually oppose vegan cheesecake. I usually oppose combining chocolate and cheesecake. But apparently if you combine chocolate AND cheesecake AND vegan, you get something great!
Bottom Line: A rare example of a place with great food AND great dessert. Anything at Champ's would make a nice meal even if you're not vegan, but it is truly special if you are.
