unkind service bland food - Edit

We are visiting from ca., and since it looked like it was a great place to have breakfast. We called no one answered to tell us if it was soy free, so we decided to give it a shot. Unfortunately, there were just three things Acai in three different toppings that’s all. It was not the worst but it could be better so if you’re not allergic to soy I guess you can have everything. For a tea and two Açaís bowls and a smoothie was almost $50.00. The girl that served us not even once came by to asked if we needed anything, and was generally unhelpful and not welcoming.

The açai bowls weren’t even fully blended there was a few frozen chunks of acai(?) in our bowls!! When the waitress asked how everything was i said after a long pause “.....ehhh okay”. This was her opportunity to make things right at least apologize and try to rectify the situation. She didn’t. She didn’t respond just took our plates and brought the check.

Pros: vegan and gluten free

Cons: no soy free options (only three) same thing , very expensive for what it is, very bland , lack of customer service

A lovely two-floor cafe in Williamsburg with an impressive menu choice. I went for a Savoury afternoon tea which for me came with a Jackfruit savoury crepe, freshly baked pecan and cinnamon scone and cookies. Absolutely delicious! Lovely services as well

disappointing crepe, good tea, no refunds. - Edit

The first time I came here, I ordered a turmeric elixir tea. It definitely healed the period cramps I walked in with.

The second time, I ordered a scone and The Garden of Eatin crêpe. The blueberry coconut scone, to my annoyance, crumbled in my hands with every bite... but it's gluten free and had a nice flavor, so it wasn't awful. Got it with clotted coconut cream (kinda just like coconut yogurt) and apricot jam.

The crepe was honestly pretty revolting - a dysharmonious raw kale salad with a brush of pesto folded in a chewy gluey sourdough-like GF crepe. I had a hard time getting it down. Kale/avo/apple/lemon juice is a pretty good salad, but throw on some pesto and wrap it in a crepe? Nope. It'd have been better had it been sauteed with mushrooms, hold the avo. But the kale was raw, the lemon juice gave everything a sour taste. It was overall weird, not savory and delicious. The waitress was hinting at me to get the cashew cheese sauce but I didn't want to spend the extra money for cashew sauce. In retrospect, it might have made it passable.

Not to be basic, but I tried to send it back, but they don't do returns. The kind waitress with cool funky style offered to doctor it up, but - I'm sorry - no add-ons could make up for that nastiness. Like, the crêpe itself is non-redeemable, unless it was soaking in a bechamel or some sauce. Even the avocado when I tried it alone tasted off.
I trust they use great ingredients, it's a SUPER charming atmosphere, perfect for tea time, but I cannot vouch for their food tbh. And I spent $18 for something I didn't even eat. Huge bummer.

Pros: vegan and gluten free , charming decor and ambiance, amazing tea selection

Cons: pricey, gluten free = gross, no refunds!

Thank god for vegan crepes! - Edit

Vegan crepes! Need I say more?! Vegan crepes that taste like traditional crepes -- even better!

Little Choc is just awesome sauce. It's an adorable little cafe smack dab in the middle of Willburg. They serve not only a wide variety of savory and sweet crepes, but also teas and smoothies. It has a very chill, peaceful vibe... a place you can go to relax, have a low key conversation with friends, or read a good book while devouring house made "newtella" and banana crepe. I love it here and usually stop by whenever I'm on the L train.

Best vegan Crêpes in NYC - Edit

Unbedingt hier zu Mittag essen!!! Es war wirklich der beste vegane Crêpes meines Lebens. Ich hatte die Burrito Füllung. Sie war unglaublich gut. Mein Freund hatte Newtella. Es ist ein super schönes Lokal, wo man auch ein bisschen mehr Zeit verbringen sollte um auch die leckeren Smoothies zu schlürfen!!!

Pros: gemütlich, super freundlich, super lecker

Great vegan crepes - Edit

We went to Little ChoC Apothecary for desserts and tea after our lunch at a nearby vegan diner. We were not disappointed. The crepes were delicious and prepared with love & care. We also had tea with our crepes. We hung out at this great relaxing cafe for an hour or so. It was a wonderful experience. Don't hesitate to try this best next time you are in Brooklyn.

Pros: wide selection of crepes, delicious food

We had two savory crepes (khail seitan and garden of eatin') and one sweet one (with newtella and coconut cream), as well as a scone, and all were delicious.

cutest vegan creperie - Edit

Absolutely love this place so much I went two days in a row when I first tried it. The place itself is so cute with a balcony on the second story which is a perfect place to sit. We tried the pizza crepe, the mexican crepe, and the masala crepe which were all amazing. The crepe batter itself is such a pleasant texture. The juices were delicious too. Highly highly recommend

my favorite Vegan right now LOVE Mushroom crepe + scone w/ cream - Edit

I'm in love this has to be my most favorite vegan eatery right now -- if they would let me I would definitely camp out there bring my pets, bed etc. just joking but I love it I just can't wait to get back there!

When I was little I lived in England for year and we had tea and I just love having a vegan scone with Vegan clotted cream!


The crapes are good on the new vegan 6 months it's a relief not to have food that's like a high fat imitation version.


The place just feels original to me marvelous just love it

Pros: service excellent , great atmosphere , bathroom

Love!! - Edit

I love this place so much!! First of all, the atmosphere is so lovely. They have a cozy space upstairs with great design and pretty art; a perfect place to drink tea. Very friendly staff. And of course, the food. The crepes are super delicious and filling, and their baked goods are delicious too!! My favorites are the Room for Mushroom crepe and the Goji Berry Chocolate Chip scone. There is a large selection of teas and other beverages which is nice to have. Great place to bring friends or a book!

Pros: great food, great atmosphere, great people

Cons: a little pricey

Vegan creperie - Edit

Cute little crepe place in Brooklyn. Nice atmosphere upstairs to enjoy food. We ordered the "newtella" and strawberries crepe, which was good, not great. I also got a cookie from the counter which wasn't very good. My friend got the salted caramel ice cream which was pretty good. Decent place, but probably wouldn't go out of my way to visit next time I'm in town.

Pros: All vegan, Cute upstairs

Cons: Food is just "ok"

LOVE the crepes! - Edit

The Little Choc Apothecary is a dream come true - delicious, well made vegan crepes! We tried one savory and one sweet crepe, and they were both amazing. It's in a great location, and the upstairs seating area is really cool.

Vegan Crepes! - Edit

This place has a large menu of both sweet & savory crepes. We only had sweet crepes on this visit. They were very good. Vegan crepes are hard to come by, so it was great to have some. I look forward to going back and trying some of the savory options. They have good coffee and a lot of juice & smoothy options. Additional seating upstairs.

There were also a lot of very tempting looking muffins and cookies I hope to try next time around.

Pros: Vegan crepes, Juices

Really wanted to like it but didn't - Edit

We were absolutely excited to try this place, but it was mediocre - at best.

The crepes weren't fluffy at all, were slightly overcooked, and I honestly think I could make better at home, if I searched for a recipe on Google.

The hot chocolate that I ordered tasted like it was made with water & a powder mix.

We sat upstairs, and there were no napkins available on the entire upper floor - none brought with our food, and none on any other tables. That's odd and annoying.

All in all, we were extremely disappointed. If you're a crepe shop and serve bad crepes, I have no reason to ever come back to try anything else.

Really sad :(

Pros: All vegan

Cons: Crepe shop that serves bad crepes

newsomz 16 Nov 2015 - I agree about the crepes. Try this recipe if you're looking to make your own at home:
vegan crepes
2 T cornstarch
2 1⁄4 – 2 1⁄2 c water
1 T vegetable oil
1 t salt
2 c all-purpose flour 1⁄2 c chickpea flour
Blend cornstarch and 1⁄2 cup water. Add oil & salt. Add flours. Add enough water to make thin cream consistency. Cook on a medium non-stick skillet for 10-30 sec then flip and cook the other side until done.
