Best Vegetarian Oasis

Rainbows End


Long before Whole Foods entered the marketplace, Rainbows End was selling whole foods in Las Vegas. It’s survived by maintaining its ’70s-inspired health-food lines while adding more contemporary offerings, such as eco-friendly cosmetics and toiletries. The in-house café still carries the hippie-themed Green Goddess sandwich alongside a full menu of juices and smoothies. Plus, the store is now a participant in the Quail Hollow Farm Community Supported Agriculture exchange. Buying local, eating fresh and supporting a Vegas staple—it’s an herbivore’s delight.
