Vesta Coffee Roasters
Jerad Howard’s decision to open Vesta was inspired less by the arts district’s need for another coffee shop than what he saw as Las Vegas’ need for places that roast their own beans. That, along with a commitment to using sustainable, fair trade, bird-friendly, organic products when possible, has helped it carve out its own niche. The limited food menu includes tartines/toasts, pastries and sandwiches.
