Las Vegas Vegan Food: Red Velvet Cafe
Red Velvet Cafe (7875 W. Sahara, Las Vegas, NV 89117 - 702.360.1972)
Red Velvet Cafe review (try #1): When we first arrived to Red Velvet Cafe my husband and I were impressed by the sleek decor, but not so much by the service. No one spoke to us or even acknowledged us for 5 minutes and we were confused whether to grab a table or wait by the bar in order to see the available selections of vegan goodness. No menus were posted anywhere and the display shelves were quite barren, which added to our confusion. When someone finally came to us it was only because my husband nodded to one of the waiters, requesting their attention.
Once our waiter came, he was quite friendly. We ordered one item - the red velvet cake - and were informed that everything created and prepared in this little cafe is vegan, which is quite the rarity in Las Vegas. We were tempted to stay and eat, to absorb the modern, vibrant design of Red Velvet, but instead were swayed by the coziness of home and ordered our cake to go.
As for the cake - amazing... while, my husband continues to be intrigued over how a cake could be made without eggs or any dairy products, both of us cannot deny the indulgently-rich flavour that radiates from this rather large serving. At $5.35, our red velvet vegan cake from Red Velvet Cafe was a wonderful (healthy) weekend treat!
