Champs is probably one of the cutest restaurants/cafes that I've been to and I love that they are all vegan, but I can't say I was particularly impressed with the food.

I was here for brunch recently and ordered the tofu benedict, which was pretty decent but nothing spectacular. I tried my friend's french toast, which was also good but the bread was VERY thick and hard, like an Italian baguette. It wasn't bad, just a little more bread than I care for in french toast. The sticky bun, however, was absolutely stellar and I will definitely be back for another.

I then stopped in for cake a few days later and was pleased to see that they had many flavors aside from the usual chocolate, coconut, and chocolate/peanut butter that the Vegan Treats-satured NYC has grown accustomed to. I went with the white/yellow cake with peanut butter frosting, which came recommended by the girl helping me. The cake wasn't bad, but it was very dense and didn't have a lot of flavor. I prefer moist cakes, so this wasn't really my thing. The frosting tasted good, but the flavor wasn't enough to compensate for all that dense, mild-flavored cake.

This place was opened by the same people that used to own Boneshakers so a lot of the menu is the same. While I've never had the savory sandwiches on the menu here, I had several at Boneshakers (notably the vegan eggwich sandwich), and enjoyed them, so if I stop by here again, it will definitely be for lunch. :)
