The good people over at The Discerning Brute just uncovered one of the deadliest things to hit Williamsburg - a new, full-service vegan bakery called Champs Family Bakery. And by deadly, we meant amazing. Not only is the large selection of cookies, scones, muffins, cakes, and other baked goods 100% vegan, they're also made with non-hydrogenated oils and mostly organic ingredients (about 85% of all used is organic). Word is that gluten-free and sugar-free options are to come soon.
Champs will also be serving Gimme! Coffee, and, here's the best part, the city's first and only vegan croissant! Brad and Meghan, co-owners of Boneshakers, a vegan cafe in Greenpoint, are behind this much-anticipated storefront. [Side note: Brad was actually in Christie's Green Auction PSA!]
It's hard to believe that there isn't already an all-vegan bakery in Williamsburg. A lot of us at Loomstate live in Brooklyn, and some of us are vegetarians, vegans, allergic to gluten, or simply refuse to settle for standard overly sugary pastries, so this might just become our new favorite.
Champs Family Bakery is at 176 Ainslie x Leonard. 718.599.2743. L train to Graham Stop.
