    There was a wait when I went on a Sunday for brunch, but it's worth it. The tofu scramble was tasty & filling. If you order a fresh juice just get the large, the small is the size of the water cups.

    If you're looking for a hearty breakfast, the Drunken Cowgirl will hit the spot. The chilli has a kick which is offset by delicious creamy avocados. Don't forget to rock out to 90s power ballads.

    The best vegan brunch in the city. We are partial to the biscuits and gravy but there are always hella enticing specials to try too. And it's inexpensive! Long wait for a table at brunch.

    The maple lattes are a fun treat, and if you're hankering for something creamier, the cookie crumbles milkshake = fab. The croquettes are divine and the pancake bowl looks silly & tastes great. Win!

    Order the Benedict bowl, add avocado, be really stoked. But also that's the only thing I've tried so far and everything looks amazing.

    Friendly staff, clean bathroom and yummy food. Stand out diner. Bit of a line for Saturday brunch and popped over to dunwell doughnuts around the corner to break up the 30 minute wait for large booth.

    I had the Cubano today and it blew my mind. Not just the best sandwich I've had at Champs, but the best sandwich I've had PERIOD. Absolutely incredible.

    Servers rewarded our good karma with a decadent fudge brownie & hot coffee served in fat diner mugs. For savory eats I suggest the club sandwich with tofurkey & bacon seitan.

    A sit-down dining area that reminds me of a '50s diner. Not only do they serve breakfast all day but the sandwiches are AMAZING. They also offer baked goods. Annoyance? They offer dairy milk-WHY?

    The Hot Cubano sandwich is not to be missed! Loaded and perfectly spicy with grilled faux ham, melted cheese, pickled jalapeños, pickles, mustard, and mayo. Zing.

    Order for take out. Even the smoothies. Arrive, bypass the line of people waiting to eat. Walk out with a bag full of delicious vegan food. Meanwhile, people are still waiting to be seated.

    The menu offers a lot of variety, but ultimately lacks creativity. There are so many vegetables and legumes they could be using to create delicious dishes while staying away from the fake Chick'n etc
