Finding a vegan brunch in Las Vegas with booze isn’t always easy — even though we have a lot of vegan restaurants in Las Vegas, many of them don’t serve alcohol. So, we headed out in search of the best brunches in Las Vegas with vegan options … and grown-up beverages. From vegan restaurants to vegan-friendly ones, in the ‘burbs and on the Strip, we’ve compiled a list of seven vegan brunches with booze in Las Vegas to check out immediately. Or, you know, this weekend.
Oh, how we love Tactoarian’s brunch menu. There’s a reason why we named it as our best brunch in Las Vegas in the new Las Vegas Vegan Food Guide (spoiler alert: it’s tied with Blinders). Head here to sit outside on their makeshift patio and bring all your closest friends to indulge in cheesy bread, burritos stuffed with goodies like french fries, tofu scrambles, horchata, cocktails and more. Plus, they’ve got bottomless booze. Win. Sundays 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Their whopping menu of 100-plus options at The Modern Vegan can get overwhelming, but we’re here for you. Order up the popular (and Instagram-worthy) Chick’n Waffles featuring breaded Gardein chicken sandwiched between waffles, served a top a bed of mashed potatoes and crowned with asparagus, bacon, maple syrup and a scoop of butter (oh yeah, this dish is massive). For a savory option, try the V’Eggs Florentine with grilled tofu, sautéed spinach and hollandaise sauce on an English muffin. They’ve also got skillets, bowls and a handful of waffle selections that will make your head spin in the best way possible. With a full bar, this vegan restaurant in Las Vegas also offers bottomless mimosas for $20. Daily.
craftKITCHEN doesn’t get nearly enough recognition for their fresh, organic vegan eats they serve up every day. The restaurant, located near Anthem, offers the usual brunch suspects like bowls, but also items like veggie toast which makes for a nice change from the typical avocado variety. The grilled garlic ciabatta comes topped with tomato onion jam, wilted spinach, sautéed ‘shrooms and a roasted red pepper coulis. We’re partial to the Farmers Market Stack, a gluten-free dish that comes with soft quinoa cake, roasted veggies and tomatoes a top smashed potatoes, and their butternut squash hash with kale and caramelized onions over smashed potatoes. craftKITCHEN also offers $16 bottomless mimosas daily, plus $8.25 Micheladas on the weekends. 7:30 a.m. – 3 p.m. weekdays; 7 a.m. – 3 p.m. weekends
Our pick for the best chicken and waffles in town (the sauce on this sandwich is amazing!), both VegeNation locations serve brunch with live tunes every Sunday. Swing by this popular vegan restaurant and try the aforementioned chicken and waffles or indulge in stuffed french toast. For more savory options, try the Food Not Bombs Bowl, Badass Burrito or their biscuits and gravy. They’ve also got buy-one, get-one specials on Bloody Marys and mimosas. Sundays 8 a.m. – 3 p.m.
If you’re searching for vegan brunch options on The Strip, head over to Wynn’s Terrace Pointe Cafe. This massive restaurant complete with outdoor patio offers vegan dishes like a JUST egg scramble, french toast, potato hash and their popular chicken and waffles. They also offer Impossible sliders, salads, smoothies and more, plus unlimited sparkling cocktails for $27.99. Daily 6 a.m. – 3 p.m.
This hip Latin restaurant/coffee shop is one of the hot places to head for brunch. Replenish those nutrients from a Vegas night out with a Gamma Smoothie made with avocado, lime juice, celery, coconut water, spinach and agave. Eats at Makers & Finders include their vegan hash complete with chive roasted potatoes, mushrooms, red peppers and onions, the empanda bowl with rice and black beans (side note: these empanadas are flaky, savory heaven). Or, try the vegan maduro, a Latin specialty featuring a black bean veggie patty and topped with salsa verde mushrooms, avocado and mixed greens, sandwiched between fried plantains. Plus, they’ve got bottomless mimosas starting at $22 per person for two hours (for a few bucks more, you can sip on specialty mimosas). Weekdays and Saturday: until 4 p.m. Sundays: 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.; Downtown Las Vegas: 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
