    Best vegan place I've ever eaten at. They have everything here. I almost cried when my trip was over because I know I can't find great vegan food anywhere else.

    The maple lattes are a fun treat, and if you're hankering for something creamier, the cookie crumbles milkshake = fab. The croquettes are divine and the pancake bowl looks silly & tastes great. Win!

    Order the Benedict bowl, add avocado, be really stoked. But also that's the only thing I've tried so far and everything looks amazing.

    There was a wait when I went on a Sunday for brunch, but it's worth it. The tofu scramble was tasty & filling. If you order a fresh juice just get the large, the small is the size of the water cups.

    If you're looking for a hearty breakfast, the Drunken Cowgirl will hit the spot. The chilli has a kick which is offset by delicious creamy avocados. Don't forget to rock out to 90s power ballads.

    Delicious vegan food! Pricy but worth it. Great for takeout (you can order online easily) or dining in (it's a small place so go early or anticipate a little wait). Note that they close daily 4-5pm.

    I had a great first time experience. I had the Po Boy sandwich with a side of tofu scramble and bacon. The food was tasty and the staff was very accommodating. I will go back to sample more choices!

    One of my favourite brooklyn brunch spots! All vegan diner with so many menu options! Earlybird burrito was so tasty! Philly cheese steak also looked great! Appetisers to share and unlimited coffee!

    The best vegan brunch in the city. We are partial to the biscuits and gravy but there are always hella enticing specials to try too. And it's inexpensive! Long wait for a table at brunch.

    The Mondo burger was so delicious and full of flavor! If you have a big appetite I say go for it, I couldn't finish my meal 😅

    I had the Cubano today and it blew my mind. Not just the best sandwich I've had at Champs, but the best sandwich I've had PERIOD. Absolutely incredible.

    We had biscuits with gravy and the big breakfast - both delicious and served by super friendly staff. Definitely recommended, many of these diner staples I’ve never had offered as vegan before.

    3 different types of veggie burgers, topped with anything you please!! Go for the black bean! By far the best! All are served with a spicy delicious pickle! RECOMMENDED!

    Friendly staff, clean bathroom and yummy food. Stand out diner. Bit of a line for Saturday brunch and popped over to dunwell doughnuts around the corner to break up the 30 minute wait for large booth.

    I've been dreaming about the kale Caesar salad since I last went there on Sunday. Also, PEANUT BUTTER CUP CHEESECAKE. OMG, PLEASE EAT IT. IT'S BEAUTIFUL.

    The food here is so good that it makes me question if it’s actually vegan 🤔 Be warned though that this is not your typical healthy vegan food. It’s straight up delicious.

    Now that they accept credit cards it is as if I died and went to heaven. Everything is delicious. Try the Montecristo sammich! And dessert!

    Two words: breakfast enchiladas. Their tofu scramble can make an omnivore never want to eat eggs again.

    Servers rewarded our good karma with a decadent fudge brownie & hot coffee served in fat diner mugs. For savory eats I suggest the club sandwich with tofurkey & bacon seitan.

    French toast slam was incredible - I have no idea how they make French toast like that. The scrambled tofu is stunning also the hashbrowns. Get the seitan bacon!!

    One of the best breakfasts of my life. Book or be prepared to queue but - obviously - incredible for vegans.

    A sit-down dining area that reminds me of a '50s diner. Not only do they serve breakfast all day but the sandwiches are AMAZING. They also offer baked goods. Annoyance? They offer dairy milk-WHY?

    Successful combination of an old traditional diner environment & hearty vegetarian bites that fill you up, but don’t weight you down. The dishes are an exceptional mix of flavors & textures.

    Delicious vegan sandwiches (try Kevin Bacon or the Cubano) in a very cool euro-coffee shop environment.

    Everything is vegan. They have created a cheese sauce that is so good…people without lactose intolerance might find it strange but I couldn’t get over it.

    The quickest service I've ever received. Definitely try the mac n' cheese with tempeh bacon; it WILL blow your mind.

    I love pulled pork, and as a new vegan I never thought I'd be able to enjoy it again until I found champs. It's very convincing! 😻

    Everything! Seriously, everything! The Philly Cheese Steaks are amazing as are all the bowls and they make the best PB Milkshake in Brooklyn!

    My favorite unhealthy Vegan restaurant. You can probably get diabetes from coming here and just looking at their sugary high carb menu options.

    Order for take out. Even the smoothies. Arrive, bypass the line of people waiting to eat. Walk out with a bag full of delicious vegan food. Meanwhile, people are still waiting to be seated.

    The Hot Cubano sandwich is not to be missed! Loaded and perfectly spicy with grilled faux ham, melted cheese, pickled jalapeños, pickles, mustard, and mayo. Zing.
