That depends. Veggie could be (acting as) an adjective, like this:
Caren's Veggie Restaurant, Caren's Veggie Bar

But if it's a noun, it would probably be best with s:
Caren's Veggies

Just think what would be best for "vegetable/vegetables":

Caren's Vegetable or Caren's Vegetables? Normally with s is better. So then do the same with Veggie(s).
