With nearly two dozen plant-based eateries, the city is so veg-friendly that it’s wise to plan for the dining experience you want. So, what is the key component of a great dining experience when you’re vegetarian or vegan? Is it cruelty-free edibles, burgers that taste like meat, a whole-food plant-based feast, an atmosphere of like-minded diners, or something else entirely? Rest assured you can find exactly the sort of tasty meal you want in Sin City.

Vegan street food? That’s right. In a city with plenty of vegan-friendly dining options, VegeNation stands out for its fresh take on global street food. Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the community-based restaurant serves only plant-based food. Take note of the details that go into the atmosphere while also serving a purpose. The chef uses herbs in the indoor garden that hangs from the wall in the dishes. Also, VegeNation is likely among the most purpose-driven eateries in the city. It’s true to the values it espouses and tries to use locally sourced ingredients it its dishes when possible.

With two locations, Veganbites does its part to change the city’s nickname to Sweet City. Veganbites Bakery was the original locale, and Veganbites Restaurant is the second location on the west side that offers a breakfast and lunch menu. The tofu caprese salad rivals any with buffalo mozzarella, and the lemon crème gnocchi may cause some involuntary declarations of pleasure. With plant-based cheesecakes, swiss rolls, double-layer cakes, brownies, cookies, cupcakes and more, it seems you could go there for dessert every day of the year and never have the same thing twice.

Café No Fur

Spring Valley, NV 89146, USA

Perhaps more in keeping with the theme of Sin City than any other vegan eatery in Las Vegas, Café No Fur is an atmospheric restaurant with vegan-themed posters on the wall. Just to note, food is presented by somewhat scantily clad servers. There is a deeper meaning behind that choice, though, since the theme is not wearing fur. Did that dish include chicken? You may think some of the entrees have meat in them, but don’t worry. It’s a 100-percent vegan restaurant that’s becoming a low-key landmark for plant-based foodies who enjoy casual comfort fare.

As a Las Vegas vegan restaurant that’s often frequented by omnivores and vegetarians alike, Veggie House dishes up veganized Chinese meals.

Regulars swear by the variety of tofu dishes, too. Located off the strip on Spring Mountain Road, you can dine in at Veggie House, but take-out and delivery options are also available.
