Vegan Baking says:
Champs Family Bakery is located in a quiet but fast growing section of Williamsburg, Brooklyn on 176 Ainslie Street (at Leonard). The owners, Brad Baker and Megan Blackburn aspire to create a classic New York bakery with a vegan flare. And all without using the V word which is refreshing. When I walked in the other day the establishment had a paint-is-still-drying-on-the-wall feel due to them just opening days earlier. You can clearly feel the energy that something amazing is about to happen in the cozy former grocery store location. There were many people hanging around, basking in the glow of the realization that… a vegan bakery is now open in Brooklyn! I could already hear the Cheers theme song playing in my head- this place is going to be the hangout for vegan bakers and sugar junkies alike.
