Good vegan options

Glad I found this on HappyCow because it is one of the best options in the Incline Village area. My partner and I were excited to see the options on the website but were disappointed to find some items were only winter seasonal items that had not been updated (we’re here in June), like vegan chili and a mac n cheese bake. They were out of soup for the day (I went an hour til closing). We had the tempeh reuben and bbq tofu sandwiches, which were good. Saving 2 breakfast burritos for tomorrow morning (assume they are equally tasty if I don’t come back to update this review!).

Pros: More vegan options than most local places, Tasty, Easy parking

Cons: Pricey, Don’t update website

Great quick food

Wonderful vegan and gluten free options. Cute place, super friendly staff. Will definitely be returning. Ordered the oatmeal and the vegan breakfast sandwich. The baked goods are vegan and they have GF options as well.

this was AMAZING !!!

as a mostly vegan vegetarian in a family of omnivores, finding a place everyone loves is so hard, and i’ll admit, i liked this place more than them. BUT for once we both had the same amount of options!!! their marinated tempeh was INCREDIBLE and the veggies were so fresh, i have yet to try the smoked tofu but i’ve heard great things about it. you can get a sandwich on a variety of breads, a wrap, or a salad, and they have tons of options for sauces and dips. the thing i love is that everything is customizable as it’s made to order, so you can truly get whatever you want!!
i ordered a salad with tempeh, lots of veg, and hummus- next time i’d get double protein (not very much tempeh in it) and way less hummus, but overall it was so yummy!!
also they have a stocked fridge w kombuchas and olipops… so yeah definitely check it out!!

Pros: everything’s customizable, two veg protein options plus an all veg option, focus on sustainability + friendly staff

Cons: not a very big serving of protein, too much hummus in my salad (can ask for less!)

Good spot

There’s not much vegan choices in northern Tahoe and quite frankly for much of the entirety of Tahoe. Rest assured this spot is a solid choice with some dedicated vegan options for breakfast and lunch. I had the harmony wrap which was good but I was still hungry since I just finished a hike nearby. I would recommend ordering it with the tofu and maybe a side dish if you have an appetite.

Pros: Solid healthy V options

Great Sandwiches and Kombucha

This place has plenty of clearly labeled vegan options. I had the "All About Avocado" sandwich with cashew cheddar (replacing jack cheese), which was delicious, fresh, and satisfying. They also offer tofu, but sadly they were out when I went (I was temporarily disappointed but my avocado sandwich was so good I promptly forgot about it). I also got their house kombucha (it was jasmine flower on that particular day), which was refreshing, bubbly, and just the right amount of sweet. They also had some vegan grab-and-go type stuff (pudding, bars) which I'd like to try next time. I don't live nearby but I definitely will be back during my next Tahoe trip!

Pros: Tofu, tempeh, homemade vegan cashew cheese, Good bread, Kombucha

Good find

There menu is about quarter vegan and a half vegetarian. the vegetarian stuff can easily be made vegan. For how few options there are in the area very good choice.

Great vegan sandwiches

This place has some solid vegan options. I really enjoyed my BBQ tofu sandwich. They have a lot of vegan sauces and plant-based proteins. Def a solid option in the north Tahoe area, which is pretty limited still when it comes to vegan options

Becareful when Ordering Check Double Check and Triple Check

My husband and I went biking on the Tahoe East Shore Trail today and I saw the Mountain High sandwich shop on Happy Cow. I saw they seemed to understand vegan and had vegan options. My husband isn't vegan so he wanted the vegetarian Ruben, I'm vegan so I ordered a vegan Ruben. I ordered one of each but when they brought the sandwiches I asked the guy from the restaurant that we ordered one vegan and one vegetarian. He said they were both vegan. We said that was okay my husband will eat a vegan one. The vegan one was suppose to have a cashew cheese instead of Swiss cheese. When I ate the sandwich I was shocked that the vegan cheese was stringy. Unfortunately after eating it I talked to a 3rd employee and asked her if the cashew cheese was stringy and she said no and that I had eaten a vegetarian Ruben not a vegan one. On top of that they didn't even apologize. I haven't eaten Dairy in years. I hope I don't any GI problems from it. I just can't believe how they messed up and didn't even care on top of it.

Amazing food!!

Absolutely amazing vegan food. They have many vegan options. I got the vegan Reuben, and my mind was blown! Absolutely fantastic. I also got the vegan chocolate mousse, which was okay but overpriced for the amount and taste. I personally wouldn’t get it again. But, their Reuben sandwich was so amazing, I might sometimes make the drive from Reno just to eat here!! So delicious. Also, they avoid plastic as much as they can, and give you compostable silverware. It doesn’t get much better than this place!

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Kind staff , Eco-friendly

This is THE place in town for vegetarian and vegan deliciousness. Organic and locally-sourced ingredients. House smoked tofu and marinated tempeh. House-made cashew cheese.

Are you hungry yet? There's a reason they have more reviews than everywhere else in town put together. Oh, and breakfast too!

Pros: Delicious, TONS of vegan and veggie choices, Careful safe staff and process in 2020

Cons: Closes early, Can get very busy, Did I mention you can't get a sandwich at dinner?

Great vegan eats!

So happy to discover mountain high sandwich while on vacation in Tahoe! Fantastic breakfast burritos. And the folks behind the counter were super nice! Will be back tomorrow! 5 star reviews are reserved for 100% vegan or vegetarian restaurants therefore could only give them a 4.

I am an out-of-towner, and I LOVE this sandwich place!

Ok so I am so excited to write them a review. I ordered a vegan sandwich and a soup. It was very taster! They also have vegan muffins and chocolate mousse🤩 So for me, the fact that they offer ‘make your own sandwich’ really allows you the availability to order due to your dietary needs. The staff is really nice. Customer care is great. They also have outdoor seating. The music selection is pretty groovy. We’ll be back tomorrow for they also have vegan breakfast sandwiches. 🤗You won’t be disappointed.

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Lots of bread options , Everything is labeled and they are flexible

Cons: It’s not in my state ;)

I Look Forward to Another Visit

The sesame ginger broccoli puréed soup is amazing. I also had the Harmony Wrap on a gluten free tortilla. The tortilla was made from teff. After my trip, I looked up the tortilla on Tortilla Factory's website and found that the company makes two kinds of gluten free teff tortillas: the non-GMO ones have honey; the Sonoma all natural ones have corn syrup solids and corn starch, which I believe are genetically modified. The Sonoma teff tortillas also have honey. I wish there was another gluten free tortilla they could use. I had the avocado chocolate mousse for dessert.

Pros: Customer service, Vegan, gluten free soup, Chocolate Mousse

Cons: Gluten free wrap (tortilla) has honey, maybe GMOs

Vegan delish!

Oh man! This nice and cozy place is always busy, no wonder why? We had the opportunity to meet the owners, a very nice humble couple, you can feel the sincerity in the hospitality, and the passion in their carefully crafted VEGAN delicious falafel wrap, the harmony wrap, the BBQ tofu sandwich, and the tomato bisque soup...
This is a must in your to do list when visiting the beautiful Lake Tahoe!

God bless guys.

Never disappointed

My family has been visiting Incline annually for the past 34 years, so when I found Mountain High, I was thrilled. Great restaurants with well-crafted and creative vegan options are still rare up here. The sandwiches are generous in size, delicious desserts (check out the creamy vegan pudding!), nice drink selection. My non-vegan family members are always happy here as well.

Be prepared to wait for your order up to a half hour at lunch-time, it is very popular, and their tiny army of sandwich preparers can get overwhelmed. However, while you wait, you can sit outside under a delightful pine tree, smell the fresh air and relax.

Pros: fabulous vegan wraps, very creative, great vegan desserts, drinks, snacks, some nice outdoor seating

Cons: long wait after ordering, limited seating

so impressed!

We are traveling through the Lake Tahoe area and saw this little gem on happy cow. I am vegan and he is omni and we were both pleased! I had the harmony wrap and quinoa salad and both were great! We both stuffed ourselves on 20 bucks! Great peaceful location , friendly service, and a lovely outdoor seating area. Worth the drive to Incline Beach!
