Vegan crêpes, good looking do-gooders, hip little kids? Check/ check/ check! Little Choc Apothecary is the first fully vegan crêperie in NYC, located at 141 Havemeyer St in Williamsburg. They offer a creative selection of sweet and savory crepes, as well as homemade baked goods.
The distressed wood, vintage décor, and expansive windows provide the perfect, sunny atmosphere for a date, meeting, or some reflective “me time” as you sip a relaxing tea blend out of a bright-yellow, personal teapot with mismatched china. With two floors, and 40 seats, the space is small enough to feel cozy, yet spacious enough to never feel cramped.
The owner, Brooklyn native Julia Kravets, began her health journey trying to stay fit as a fashion model without having to eliminate dessert from her life. “What started as a personal journey, became a greater cause” says Kravets, “Animal welfare, agricultural sustainability, and our Nation’s health crisis became top priorities in my life, and in creating Little Choc Apothecary I sought to address them all.”
Julia’s goal is to make healthy, cruelty-free food delicious, and more readily available to an ever-growing community of conscious eaters, and anything-goes foodies alike.
In addition to being egg and dairy free, their crepe batter is gluten-free. Toppings include Newtella– homemade, vegan hazelnut spread, organic preserves, and raw chia jams. Scrambled tofu, coconut bacon, pumpkin curried tempeh (from Brooklyn-based Barry’s Tempeh), and homemade seitan with BBQ sauce are some of the savory topping highlights. Yea, that good.
They also bake an array of cookies, scones, muffins and cakes in small batches every day. Their liquid menu includes freshly pressed juices, Toby’s Estate coffee and espresso drinks, homemade raw almond and coconut milk options, as well as an apothecary-like selection of house blended teas. With over 100 different herb varieties, guests have the freedom to request off menu, personalized tea blends based on their health, or taste preferences. Any individual herb or tea blend is available to take home by the ounce.
All products are completely plant based, free of any chemical binders, gums, artificial flavors, and overly processed sugars and flours. They source our ingredients from local farms and distributors who focus on sustainability, and providing local, organic, and fair trade products whenever possible.
