Champs was another vegan place we checked out for brunch. I had a hard time deciding what to order, because I'm not accustomed to having so many choices. Ended up getting the tofu scramble, which was cooked perfectly. Not incredibly exciting but I would go there again.
I was determined to visit a Candle restaurant. Jasmin Singer recommended the Candle West, but that didn't work out; instead we made it to the one on the East side of the park. It was okay, but definitely did not blow me away as I had so wanted. I think my expectations were too high and probably should have gotten a salad.
We had pizza a couple of times, one place being Patsy's, which C had been to on her 10th birthday trip with her grandmother and grandfather. She insisted it was the best pizza ever, and it is definitely is up there. If you get a salad, stay away from the 'creamy balsamic dressing'...
There is a falafel place in Williamsburg, called Oasis and if we hadn't been led there, I doubt we would have ever tried it but I tell you it is absolutely the best falafel! Aside from the falafel being flavorful and not greasy, the pita is thin, instead of this thick bread that I'm usually finding these days. He piles in shredded lettuce, pickled cabbage and onions. And, it's $3! Absolutely crazy. For $6 you get a side of humus and tomato & cucumber salad. I recommend leaving your falafel in the bag in which it's served or it will be way messy.
I was so excited to get to visit Moo Shoes and, with the gift certificate from Tammy, buy a pair of boots, which is something I have wanted for a long time. It was so great to not have to find the label and check to see if anything was made from leather!
These are just a few of the places we visited. There is always so much more to explore. Definitely want to check out Lulu's Apothecary, Blossom, and a recommendation by the sitter we had when we were there. She's vegan and said her favorite place is Sacred Chow.
