1 Day New York Vegan Eating Guide (Brooklyn)
Welcome to Brooklyn! You have 24 hours to eat in Brooklyn, which is not enough time at all, but I’m going to help you make the most of it!
Breakfast: Champs Diner
Champs Diner is known for vegan. junk. food. People from all over the world rave about this place, the restaurant is packed all day (so get there early), and vegan eating has never been easier. I recommend getting the mozzarella sticks, pancakes (birthday cake is my personal favorite), Breakfast Slam, Nashville Hot Chicken sandwich, and topping it off with a milkshake.
197 Meserole St, Brooklyn, NY 11206
Dessert: Dun-Well Doughnuts
Name a more classic duo than Champs Diner and Dun-well Doughnuts. Dun-well Doughnuts is a block away from Champs Diner, so the move is often to pregame your Champs meal with a donut while you’re waiting in line. New Yorkers don’t mess around. I like their Boston Creme donut, but their flavors change regularly, so you’ll always be getting something fresh!
222 Montrose Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11206
Lunch: Screamers Pizzeria
In my opinion, New York has two superior foods: bagels and pizza. Our pizza by the slice is part of every drunken night, quick bite after work, and general happiness. Screamers Pizzeria has amazing (repeat: amazing) vegan pizza by the slice, and my favorite slices are: Buffalo Cauliflower, Grandma, White, and anything with mushrooms.
Greenpoint Location (original and next to a Van Leeuwen Ice Cream Shop): 620 Manhattan Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11222
Crown Heights Location (bigger with more seating, full menu): 685 Franklin Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11238
Dinner: Modern Love
Now lets slow things down the junk food with fancy junk food. Modern Love specializes in vegan comfort food in a beautiful sit-down space. Some favorites include: Chicken and Waffles (during brunch only though) Buffalo Tempeh Wings, Mac & Shews, Hen of the Woods Piccata. The ice cream here is also so creamy and special, so save room for dessert!
