Las Vegan V

July 3, 2015: Las Vegan have announced that they're closing the cafe and going to focus exclusively on catering from now on - we've sampled their catering before and it's great.

March 10, 2012

We hit Las Vegan on a Saturday night with a gang of ten people or so for Veganator's birthday bash. The highlight of the night was the vegan meat cake that we all enjoyed for 'dessert' (see full details here), but the food that Las Vegan served up was pretty great as well. Since we last visited they've added pizzas to the night-time menu, and Cindy and I both decided they were worth a shot.

She had the Hawaiian ($10), which was smothered in fake-ham, vegan cheese and pineapple. It was a pretty solid effort, falling just below Cindy's favourite junky vegan pizza. I couldn't resist the bbq chicken pizza ($12), which was well topped with mushrooms, vegan cheese and mock chicken. It's good to know that I'll be able to fulfil my bbq meatlovers cravings even after the EBC closes down in the next few weeks.

Since we last visited Las Vegan has appeared on blogs mochii eats, vegan about town, Fiona's World, Little things, The Healthy Party Girl, crosslegged on the front lawn (twice) and soya and chocolat (in French!).

We've written about Las Vegan one, two, three, four times.

Accessibility: Pretty good - reasonable entry, plenty of space around tables, order at the table and pay at a low-ish counter. We haven't visited the toilets.


  1. Mmmmm, those pizzas might get us back to Las Vegan. We went there a while ago and neither of us enjoyed our meals enough to warrant a repeat visit. I have wanted try Las Vegan again but it's hard to drag the man away from his other favourite places in the area. If I mention pizza, it could be a different story! :)

    1. It's worth a try, Mel! The pizzas are very hearty and not too expensive, a good option if you're in the mood for mock meat. :-)

  2. I've been meaning to go there for so long - I've only ever heard good things! Also, huge lol @ the "meat cake"!!! I've never heard of them before.

    Arrgh! This is Nat from App. Aff., by the way. Blogspot hasn't been letting me comment from my Wordpress account for a while now. Mega annoying!

    1. Hi Nat! Blogspot has been a right pain behind the scenes for a couple of months too - I am dying to update my link list and am completely unable to.

      On a better note, Las Vegan is pretty cool as grungy, laid back cafes go - definitely worth a visit. :-)
