A new vegan bakery is set to open in Brooklyn, NY, this weekend. Megan Blackburn and Brad Baker, owners of Boneshakers vegan café, are now opening Champs Family Bakery. The two conceived the idea from the popularity their vegan treats were having at Boneshakers, and they wanted to expand to a stand-alone storefront. Walk through the doors, and you’ll be greeted by vegan pastries galore, from cupcakes to cheesecake, and framed pictures of vegan celebrities such as Rue McCallahan. However, nowhere is it advertised that the bakery is exclusively vegan, a decision made to allow the treats to speak for themselves. Soon, the owners hope to expand their counter service to wholesale—they are already supplying treats to Brooklyn Fire Proof café. As Blackburn says, “The sky’s the limit.”
