Do you want organic vegan food in Las Vegas? Violette’s Vegan Organic Cafe & Juice Bar has you covered.
The vibrant Las Vegas vegan restaurant focused on comfort food has something for everyone … including those of us who want a meal on the healthy side.
Las Vegas Vegan Restaurant: Violette’s Vegan Organic Cafe & Juice Bar
Violette’s Vegan features a pretty comprehensive menu with American food staples like meatless wings smothered in barbecue sauce with ranch dressing, thick and hearty sandwiches, salads and more. Plus, it’s got some seriously addicting juices and smoothies packed with organic fruit, nut or seed milk, and super-food add-ons.
Before we even get into the lunch and dinner options, we need to cover their all-day breakfast. Finding vegan breakfast options in Vegas is by far the most challenging meal to find if you’re vegan.
Violette’s has got our back.
On the sweet side, Violette’s serves gluten-free pancakes with a choice of chocolate chips or blueberries you can toss in.
If you want a savory breakfast, our top pick is their muffin melt, a toasted English muffin stuffed with tofu scramble, sausage, melted cheese and Thousand Island dressing.
Other options include their BLTA scramble and a country biscuits and gravy platter.
Like we mentioned, Violette’s is perfect for comfort food and it’s appetizers are no exception. We’re partial to the mac and cheese balls which come topped with bacon bits, melted cheese and sour cream.
But, there’s so much more.
They’ve got Sassy Wings, a crowd favorite, featuring seasoned and breaded seitan tossed in their secret sauce and served with celery and carrots.
Other starters include their loaded baked potato, cauliflower bites (try the teriyaki!), quesadillas, nachos, riblets and more.
There are four salads at Violette’s — all of which are delicious.
We always order the Superfood Nature Girl, featuring mixed greens and kale, quinoa, tofu, roasted beets, chickpeas, sprouts, red onion, celery, slivered almonds and cilantro tossed in their creamy cilantro-avocado ranch.
The other three salads are the Sunshine Salad, a basic house salad with sprouts and chickpeas added in, classic Caesar and the Crispy Asian salad with cabbage, crispy noodles, mung beans and more tossed in your choice of peanut dressing or Asian dressing (it packs a punch!).
For those of us who want to sink our teeth into something, Violette’s offers a few different burgers to choose from.
There’s the indulgent Cyndy’s All-In Burger, a Beyond patty topped with cheese, bacon, avocado, tomatoes, pickles, red onion, lettuce and Thousand Island dressing with onion rings thrown in for good measure.
They’ve also got the popular California Dreamin’ Bacon Cheeseburger, and Southern Fried Chicken Burger.
For a less-caloric option, Violette’s serves it’s Hippie Chick burger, a black bean burger with pesto, avocado, alfalfa sprouts, crispy kale and lettuce on a gluten-free bun.
Sandwiches and Wraps
Since we’re always on the search for chicken sandwiches, our natural pick is the Buffalo Chicken Sandwich. This sandwich features crispy chicken tossed in buffalo sauce, plus ranch, cheese sauce and more on a toasted ciabatta bun. OMG, right?
Our other favorite sandwich from Violette’s is the Super BTLA, a grilled sourdough ‘wich filled with tempeh bacon, lettuce and avocado.
If those do’t float your boat, they also serve a Philly Cheesesteak, Mexicali Wrap with brown rice, beans, cheese sauce, guac and sour cream, and the Rainbow Wrap, a warm spinach tortilla loaded with goodies like cucumbers, sprouts, red onions, purple cabbage, tomatoes, guac and a creamy cilantro-avocado ranch.
Violette’s is vegan comfort food heaven, and if you don’t believe us, be sure to try the Country Classic. This hearty dish features whole-grain tempeh and tofu cutlets served atop of a bed of creamy mashed potatoes smothered in gravy, alongside veggies and corn bread.
The organic restaurant recently added breakfast to the mix, too! Served daily (7 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. weekdays, until 2 p.m. on weekends), guests can enjoy a complimentary cup of coffee and nosh on these yummy plant-based eats. We’re fans of the Choose Your Own (vegan adventure) and dig the veggie scramble along with a fresh-baked biscuit (we dare you to eat only one) and then a side of fruit. Bonus points go to the gluten-free donuts they’ve got, too.
You can’t skip dessert here! With a rotating cast of sweets, there’s something for every craving.
