Yes! We started our Monday in grand style! We had lunch at the first all vegan crêperie Little Choc Apothecary and loved it! They are NYC’s first vegan crêperie and tea room.
Little Choc Apothecary is located in the far end of Williamsburg, in a street that has several amazing spots to visit! We love it there!
The entrance of the crêperie is extremely charming and welcoming, with wooden details and bright yellow, happy colors!
As you walk in, you’ll notice the place is quite small, with a larger part of the space exclusively for the preparation of the crepes. The seats at the counter window are certainly pretty sought-after by their visitors!
But, there is a second floor! You’ll find a few tables upstairs to calmly enjoy your crepes and even try a few different tea flavors from their own apothecary.
We ordered the Garden of Eatin’ made with apple, avocado, fresh kale, mint-basil pesto and lemon juice and The Masala with pumpkin curried white bean tempeh, sliced almonds…both are f-a-b-u-l-o-u-s!
Of course we couldn’t (and would never) skip the dessert, so we got the Newtella – homemade hazelnut spread + strawberry. I think you can imagine how we enjoyed and savored with moment…
Julia Kravets, born in Ukraine and a former model (she’s gorgeous), is the owner. Her story is pretty amazing!
At 21 she decided to go Vegan, after watching the movie Earthlings. A short while later, she began brainstorming about opening her own vegan business and started writing down a business plan.
She had no support from close relatives, no knowledge in writing a business plan, Excel was a challenge back then, but her intuition spoke louder. Lucky us!
Julia opened Little Choc in January of 2015. The tea blends are her own creations and the food is to-die-for!
As we mentioned above, this vegan crêperie is very charming and the dining tables are on the upper floor, where you’ll always find a cool group of freelance people hanging around too.
The brick walls are lovely and there is a beautiful wall with countless tea spice jars. Plus, the natural light coming through the almost floor to ceiling window definitely is a highlight.
“We offer a creative selection of sweet and savory crepes, as well as homemade baked goods. Our products are completely plant based, free of any chemical binders, gums, artificial flavors, and overly processed sugars and flours.

So, enjoy your crepe with tea, at this vegan crêperie, and do explore the neighborhood!
Oh, and we enjoy Little Choc so much that we featured them on our “Will A Meat Eater Survive In 3 Vegan Restaurants?” YouTube video! Well, did he survive? Check it out!
