It’s pretty well known in the local vegan community that if someone wants a legit vegan meal, the place to go is either Wynn or Encore. While we’ve dined at a few of the spots, and love that the properties require each restaurant to offer vegan dishes, we’re not a huge fan of the outrageous prices for dishes with Gardein (which are around $20, say whatttt?).
Let’s face it: there are plenty of places on The Strip to go for vegan dining options that aren’t going to cost you a small fortune.
But, that’s not why you’re here. So, let’s talk Terrace Pointe Cafe. This airy, and true-to-Wynn-fashion, gorgeous cafe has quite a few vegan options. We’re a fan of the breakfast, largely because of the $22 all-you-can-drink mimosas, but also because vegan breakfasts are a bit hard to find on The Strip.
Sure, you can enjoy healthy smoothies and juices, salads, sandwiches and entrees here, but breakfast is really where it’s at. The best? The Spicy Tofu Scramble. It’s huge and packed with healthy ingredients like lentils and peppers, and really tasty. They’ve also got chicken and waffles, but for the price tag, we’d rather head to VegeNation to enjoy theirs (it’s half the price and — in our opinion — tastier).
We were left a bit disappointed with the dessert — a blackberry tart. The blackberries themselves were divine, but the rest? Meh.
Side note: You’re not going to find the vegan menu online (we’re not sure why), and you specifically have to ask for the menu at the host stand.
