Las Vegas has plenty of coffee shops. But, vegan-friendly coffee shops are another story. Sure, you can hit up Coffee Bean or Starbucks for some dairy alternatives in your caffeine juice and maybe some fruit or snacks, but there are plenty of vegan-friendly coffee shops in Las Vegas working to actually cater to the vegan crowd. And, these are the ones we love the most.

The Coffee Class
The newest kid on the block (it opened July 2019), this always-packed Instagram-worthy shop offers gorgeous specialty drinks like rose lattes with oat milk, nitro chai and more, plus they’ve got savory and sweet pastries to get you going. With a vegan scone on hand (we love the lavender and blueberry) or mushroom and spinach tart, it’s easy to fill up and perk up at The Coffee Class. 8878 S. Eastern Av.
This urban coffee shop in Downtown Las Vegas not only has a great scene kicking, but also great food and drinks. Open from breakfast to dinner, PublicUs taps into its artisanal bakery and chefs to whip up a rotating selection of vegan food like burritos, bowls, chili (omg the chili) and sweets like the always-there cinnamon roll and thick fudge cake. Plus, they also have plenty of caffeinated beverages to make you happy. 1126 Fremont St.
Vesta Coffee Roasters
Tucked into the Arts District, the vegan food options at Vesta aren’t as vast as we’d like, but its bright and airy building and vegan drinks make up for it. We’re obsessed with the macadamia nut latte with almond milk and The Basic avocado toast, which is basic but one of the best in town thanks to the sourdough bread and perfectly basic and delicious red pepper, lemon and olive oil to accompany the avocado. Bonus: Vesta roasts its own beans on-site. 1114 S. Casino Center
Makers & Finders
Latin comfort food meets coffee shop at Makers & Finders. With two locations — one in the Arts District and one in Downtown Summerlin – M&F is a hip spot to open up the laptop and tuck into work at the community tables, or catch up with friends on their patio. We’re huge fans of the beet latte and empanada bowl … and their plant-based offerings in general for breakfast, lunch and dinner. 1120 S. Main St., 2120 Festival Plaza Dr.
Conveniently located near the airport, Sunrise Coffee serves up pastries, wraps and a ton of vegan beverages (hello, lavender matcha latte) that make this a popular spot with the vegan crowd. Try the Nom Nom Burrito stuffed with beans, fresh spinach, tomatoes and avocado — just let them know you’re vegan so they can sub out the eggs, sour cream and cream cheese. 3130 E. Sunset Rd.
Mothership Coffee Roasters
The independent coffee shop, Mothership Coffee Roasters, (which also owns Sunrise) is focused more on its pastry game. Here, they freshly bake items like vegan versions of Twinkies, almond bread cookies, hand pies and more. It’s small, but with a few outdoor seats, it’s a fab place to grab some sweets, a cup of freshly roasted coffee, and hang. 2708 N. Green Valley Pkwy.
If you’re nearby ULNV, TIABI is your spot. This coffee shop is known for its waffles and we’re a sucker for the Viva Las Elvis, a waffle smothered in peanut butter and banana, then topped with coconut bacon and agave. It’s oh-so-good. For lunch, check out the Guru Burger, a veggie patty sandwiched between waffles. 3961 S. Maryland Pkwy.
We also dig Saint Honoré and its sister spot, Cafe Lola, for Instagram-perfection and snacks; Mad House Coffee for their lunch eats; and JOLT at The Center for their drinks, grilled cheese and sweets.
