Food and Drinks

I love to eat. I love food. It's essential to survival. This section covers some of my favorite places for food, drinks, coffee and more. Most of my recommendations are off the strip locations because every blog and article focuses primarily on food and drinks locations on the strip.

Best Coffee Shops in Las Vegas

When I first moved to Las Vegas, I was pretty underwhelmed with the coffee scene. Thankfully, over the years this has improved and new coffee shops continue to impress me. We wanted to document our research, so we created a guide to the best coffee shops in Las Vegas. This guide features reviews and research done in our hunt for the best coffee shop in Las Vegas. The LV Plug team also curated a list of our favorite coffee shops in the Las Vegas valley.

Best Libraries in Las Vegas

One of the best things about becoming a Las Vegas local is that you now have access to the Las Vegas-Clark County Library District. Go get your library card. It is FREE. It's super easy to get to.
