it's been so long since I've posted in here! Glad to see all of the wonderful vegan food again!

I have been vegan in Las Vegas for almost 5 years now. I've known about Pura Vida for years, but I hadn't tried them. Boy, am I glad that i did. Everything was absolutely delicious!

Chili-cheese (daiya) potatoes. Sweet and savory potatoes topped with vegan chili and smooth, creamy daiya.

Citrus Agua Fresca. Uh-May-Zing!!!

Thw WOW meal! Tofu scramble, quesadillas,housesalsa, vegan sausages, more potatoes... and it came with...
Image

THE BEST PANCAKES I'VE EVER HAD!!! I adored the maple syrup. It was very light and not too sweet. I bought 2 Groupons for this place. I can't wait to go back
Image

Plus, there's such cute signage :)

I'm salivating. I grew up in Vegas and normally spend some time there each summer, so I'll be sure and check this place out!

Oh my goodness! Looks divine. I will for sure be making the trip up there. I'm in Henderson, and have read about it but haven't gotten to try it yet.

that place was certainly....interesting!

the food was okay (although portions were 2x what I need), but the service was mental. suuuuper pushy (though from a place of enthusiasm, I suppose).. tiredjosh did not have the energy for that. add in a mixed up order, slow service, fairly high prices (half the portion at 2/3rd the price would be great!) and plasticy environment means I don't think I'll be in a rush to go back
