Yes! I'm sure if you are vegan or veg in Brooklyn you have heard of this place. They are known for being laid back I'm talking really laid back so laid back that their employes can where what ever they want to work. If you like a cool funkey eclectic place to eat look no further. Also they have punk... More

I'm a vegetarian that loves junk food, so needless to say this place caught my attention. When I first walked in, I was a little taken back by the fact that the lady behind the counter was sitting down (and took my order while remaining seated) and furthermore that when she finally stood up as she had to in order...

Enough said. This vegan place has mock fried chicken and it comes in crispy, BBQ or hot! The food variety is creative and delicious. We had the eggplant parm sandwich and the "chicken" cutlet sandwich with vegan mayo. They were great!

Rockabilly-meets-Ghandi atmosphere and delicious, naughty-but-nice vegan "junk" food are a special treat at this hip Brooklyn joint. My partner and I went during brunch hours on a Sunday so we both got a (big!) tofu-fake-cheese biscuit and split a chkn-wing platter with vegan mac & cheese. Also an order of punk fries (fries covered in fake nacho cheese and chipotle... More

Myself and my boyfriend were really keen to visit this place on our most recent trip to NY, as we'd heard tonnes of great reviews. I have to say the experience as a whole was pretty hit and miss. I have type 1 diabetes, so I make sure to avoid consuming pointless sugar (such as buying full cal soda etc).... More

Foodswings is a great little place with super-amazing fries. Both the food and service were terrific. The menu is really extensive and fun to review but it's definitely hard to decide what to get! Go, relax and enjoy!

I'm not vegan but I enjoyed our visit to Foodswings! There is so much choice of burgers and fries.. Plus other main courses. The mint choc milkshake was delicious too! Good value, great service.
