Respond to Review of CLOSED: Pura Vida Bakery and Bystro
Review: Pura Vida was a thrilling find on our search for Vegas Vegan. We brought our non-veg parents and it was really challenging for them to adapt (welcome to our world!) but with the breakfast options, you really can't go wrong with pancakes and waffles. We were accidentally the My Love instead of the breakfast burrito w/ tofu scramble, but I have to say the My Love was my favorite dish! The bean dip served automatically was unbelievable. I'm not normally a big fan of fake meats, but the breakfast sausage was pretty yummy. The cookies to go were a nice treat later in the day! The staff was super sweet even though many were new and made some rookie mistakes. For me, the novelty of an all vegan restaurant and the quality and taste of the food forgives all but the very worst of mistakes. I appreciate their effort so much that I could care less if I have to ask them to reheat the coffee or start a new pot! The only real complaint was that the menu was ultra confusing. The menu changes between weekday and weekend offerings, and the time of day options (breakfast, lunch, brunch) all change with weekday/weekend changes. I'm all about changing it up, but when all the items are shown on the same menu (but are not necessarily available), and some on the specials board that conflict with the menu rules, it got way too confusing. All in all, many of these things are just because they're new. PLEASE visit and support them next time you're in Vegas!!
