One of the OG when it comes to vegan restaurants, Lu Vuk is no stranger to providing vegan eats to Las Vegas. Sadly, the two longest running vegan restaurants in town — Go Raw Cafes — closed in December 2016. However, there is still Go Vegan Cafe. Tucked into a nondescript building off of Rainbow and 215, Go Vegan Cafe is a tiny slice of zen in the city, complete with an atrium with bubbling water.
It’s got the staples that we loved at Go Raw (we’re looking at you, House Salad with everything tossed in and salad dressing you want to lick off the plate), as well as cooked fare.
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner — and complete with a food bar during lunch and dinner — Go Vegan offers raw and gluten-free options.
For breakfast, indulge. Seriously. Don’t skip out on the pancakes. With seven options to choose from, you can’t go wrong. Tofu scrambles are also insanely delicious and come in a variety of options, too. We are partial to their Mediterranean omelette, a perfectly flavored breakfast filled with olives, red peppers and more, which comes complete with breakfast potatoes and a gluten-free muffin. Heaven.
But, there’s so much more. We’re talking sushi. Salads. Home-made lentil loaf. Quiche. Burgers. Grilled cheese sandwiches. Pizzas. Mexican eats. Raw burgers. Raw pizzas. Raw wraps. And so much more. Also, dessert comes courtesy of Vegan Bites.
Go Vegan Cafe also has a massive juice and smoothie menu, so whenever you need some extra vitamins and healthiness in your life, this restaurant has you covered.
