Champs Diner

Vegan in Brooklyn: Williamsburg, Greenpoint & Bushwick

This airy little diner whips up delicious plates of American comfort food, all entirely vegan. The reasonable prices and all-day breakfasts keep things busy (don't expect speedy service). Try the French toast slam (with tofu scramble and tempeh or seitan bacon), chocolate-chip-and-banana pancakes, mac 'n' cheese or a 'bacon cheeseburger' (a black-bean burger with tempeh bacon and vegan cheese).

Energy-fueling juices, smoothies and lattes (with oat, coconut, almond or soy milk) are also available. Weekend brunch sees lines out the door – if you don't want to wait, head around the corner and try the brunch at local bar Tradesman.
