On my first Friday in New York, I went over to New York Adorned and got tattooed by Brad Stevens. It was a pretty cool experience and the shop had a good vibe and cool people working there. Brad is vegan so I asked him for some suggestions as far as good restaurants in the Greenpoint/Williamsburg area, especially for a good breakfast. His first suggestion was Champs, a restaurant/bakery that has gone through some changes in the past year, for the better!
So, for a late breakfast the next day, my cousin and I ventured a mile or so in the unusually warm weather to Champs. We walked in and all of the tables were full with a short wait, so as soon as the seats at the counter opened up we grabbed them and set our eyes on the menu. I ended up getting the Bionic Breakfast that included a “mountain of potatoes with sauteed mushrooms, peppers and soysage topped with spicy tofu sauce” and my cousin got the BLT with tempeh bacon, tomato, lettuce and veganaise on whole wheat bread.
