When most people think of having a good time in Las Vegas, they think about the nightlife. They think about taking in a show, hitting the clubs, watching a Golden Knights game, and, of course, wooing Lady Luck.
They also think about having the kind of meals that are only available in Las Vegas, a city that has evolved into one of the world’s most-recognized food capitals.
However, late lunches and dinner don’t get all the glory. This might be “the City That Never Sleeps”, but that doesn’t mean people go without breakfast.
In fact, for dedicated foodies, brunch in Las Vegas may be one of the best experiences you can have here.
Not known for half-measures of any kind, Las Vegas isn’t lacking for brunch spots. If you’re trying to find the best brunch in Las Vegas, it really comes down to what you like most on your plate. Here are 15 different options to give your stomach something to think about.
While brunch as a group activity has enjoyed a resurgence in popularity over the past decade, it has always been a staple at Sterling Brunch. Located inside Bally’s, this restaurant has been serving what many consider the best brunch in Las Vegas for 30 years.
Do the bottomless glasses of Nicolas Feuillatte champagne have something to do with this?
But you also can’t discount small-bite portions that are perfect for sharing, the incredible truffle mashed potatoes, plates of charcuterie, and a dessert bar that will make you forget it isn’t even noon yet.
Speaking of menu items that will completely overtake you, Bardot Brasserie may offer the best one in all of Las Vegas. Not just the best brunch in Las Vegas, but the best dish on any menu in the entire city.
Its brioche French toast is beyond compare. You have to experience it for yourself.
Not that the rest of the French menu at Bardot Brasserie is forgettable. Its tableside options are especially memorable. Both the beef Wellington and the baked Alaska will have your mouth watering long before that initial bite.
No matter what you order for brunch here, you’ll find plenty of options for enjoying it with an incredible assortment of French wines.
If you’re looking for the best brunch in Las Vegas specifically for the mimosas, you’ll have a hard time beating the experience waiting for you at Kitchen Stove.
There you’ll find the “Mimosa Garden”, where you can order bottomless Champagne or glasses spotlighting homemade juices and syrups such as pineapple, hibiscus, and blackberry.
For those who really love mimosas, you’ll want to order Kitchen Stove’s “Chambong.” Imagine a champagne flute with the stem hollowed out and a hole at the end. If you’re not a huge fan of slow sipping your bubbly, the Chambong is the perfect solution.
The menu here is spectacular, too: Crab with spinach artichoke dip, burrata caprese, and chocolate-covered strawberries are a few of the many delicious options you’ll find on the menu.
If the best brunch in Las Vegas needs a view to qualify, Border Grill at Mandalay Bay is an easy front-runner. The patio extends to two floors, plus there’s a beautiful bar outside, so you don’t have to forgo sunshine to order your mimosa or the restaurant’s famous margaritas. You’ll also enjoy great views of the pool and beach.
The menu features a number of items from south of the border, including drunken Peruvian toast, Diablo fried chicken, lobster cachapas. If you’ve grown tired of traditional brunch options, Border Grill will wake up your palate.
For another restaurant that offers something very different than the traditional brunch, head to Lavo.
However, you’ll need to buy tickets first, as its Party Brunch has become as popular as some of the shows in Las Vegas.
With music playing, confetti exploding, and large Champagne bottles being paraded around, this Las Vegas brunch is about entertainment as much as it is about eating.
But Lavo certainly didn’t forget about the food. Butter-poached lobster Benedict, chicken and waffles, and a Milanese omelet are just a few of the reasons that foodies absolutely love this Las Vegas hot spot for brunch. The nonstop party atmosphere doesn’t hurt, either.
Park on Fremont is another brunch location that offers one-of-a-kind surroundings. Though the food still steals the show, the 2,500 square-foot restaurant’s dark wood, plush banquette seating, and a floor of reclaimed herringbone will engage your eyes as well as your taste buds. Sit outside and you’ll be surrounded by flowers and fantastical decorations like a rooftop carriage fit for Cinderella.
Then, there’s the food.
From avocado egg rolls to renowned Loaded Garbage Fries, there’s plenty to rev the appetite. The cocktail menu goes on and on, and offers beers from all over the world.
It should come as no surprise that a restaurant that specializes in “Italian soul food” also offers up one of the best brunches in Las Vegas. Located in The Arts District, Esther’s Kitchen has a fast-casual feel, but you can tell the food is always crafted with care. Brunch is no exception. Seasonal yogurt made with truffle honey, smoked ocean trout toast, and breakfast pizza made with boar sausage are just a few of the many reasons Esther’s Kitchen has been living up to the hype for the past two years with no signs of slowing down.
Head to downtown Las Vegas and you’ll find chef Natalie Young’s Eat, a little restaurant with a big personality. The comfort-food breakfast menu is full of simple dishes loaded with flavor. For example, deviled eggs, egg white frittata, and pancakes may seem like traditional brunch options, but the recipes behind them promise delicious surprises.
Eat isn’t the brunch spot for those who want bottomless mimosas and loud music. It’s a smaller spot full of charm from unmatched colored chairs and an exposed ceiling.
That said, if you want an incredible brunch in Las Vegas where you can sit and catch up with friends, you will not be disappointed by what Eat has to offer.
Even with all of the different types of cuisine in Las Vegas, menu items inspired by the Midwest are rare. And yet, the “twisted farm food and crafted cocktails” at Hash House A Go Go have made it one of the best brunch restaurants in the entire city.
It doesn’t just serve Midwestern recipes, either. Hash House A Go Go serves Midwest portions, too. Andy’s World Famous Sage Fried Chicken, Hand Hammered Pork Tenderloin, and its Famous Stuffed Burger are all enough to fill very large plates (and more than enough to fill even the largest of bellies).
For cocktails, The Tractor Bar has refreshing options like Johnny’s Famous B.L.T. Mary, the Drunk Clam, and the Huckleberry Sin.
Mott 32 is probably best-known in Las Vegas for its Peking duck, which need to be pre-ordered because of a 48-hour cooking process.
Its reputation might be changing, though, thanks to “bottomless brunch”, which was just introduced in January. It starts with a variety of incredible dim sum, like sugar-coated buns filled with barbecued Iberico pork or dumplings made with South Australian scallops topped with gold leaf and caviar.
It doesn’t stop there, though.
Not even close.
Next, you’ll get to choose an unlimited amount of one of the restaurant’s signature items, including seafood, meat, rice, and soup options. It’s like a buffet, minus the part where you actually have to get up from the table (arguably the worst part about buffets).
You can also add the “Free-Flow Beverage Package” to your brunch for specialty cocktails, including Chandon and Moët Champagne.
Considering Thomas Keller is amazing at everything, it makes sense that his restaurant, Bouchon, does a fantastic brunch, as well. In fact, Sunday brunch is what Bouchon has become known for in Las Vegas.
The oyster bar opens at 3 p.m., but if you arrive earlier, you won’t be disappointed by options like Oeufs Benedict, Petit Déjeuner Américain, and Steak et Oeufs.
You also won’t be disappointed by the elegant exterior. Even though you’ll be in the Venezia Tower, it’s easy to imagine you’re enjoying brunch just off the Avenue des Champs-Élysées circa 1955.
If your idea of brunch includes fried chicken, you absolutely must visit Yardbird Southern Table & Bar Friday through Sunday beginning at 9:30 a.m. The restaurant touts itself as “a house of worship to farm-fresh ingredients, classic Southern cooking, culture, and hospitality.”
However, while options like the Chicken ‘n’ Watermelon ‘n’ Waffles, the Crispy Chicken Biscuit, and the Chicken & Egg Biscuit Sandwich are incredible, there are plenty of other proteins on the menu, as well. The Smoked Salmon Avocado Toast and Main Lobster Benedict are two standout examples.
Then, there are fun options like the Seasonal Cobbler, Doughnut Tree, and Funfetti Pancakes. So, even if you come for fried chicken, you may still have trouble making a choice.
Celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis is famous for her love of Italian cuisine, which is evident all over the menu at her restaurant, GIADA, located inside The Cromwell.
Giant retractable windows and views of Caesars Palace and the Bellagio fountains also add to the restaurant’s Mediterranean vibe.
Then, there’s the brunch menu, which is full of Italian classics, as well as some more innovative options. For example, you could start with a fresh-squeezed orange juice or try Giada’s Sangria, which is made with Brachetto d’Acqui or La Marca Prosecco, fresh lime, lemon, and strawberries, and mixed with mojito mint syrup.
With your drink order placed, move on to main course options like Pizza Carbonara made with a sunny side-up egg, Gruyere, fontina, and crispy pancetta, or indulge in lobster hash made with Nueske’s bacon, potatoes, pepper, tomato, and onion confit.
There’s no bad seat for brunch at Mon Ami Gabi. The outdoor patio gives you some great views of the Strip outside the Paris Hotel, but you can also get an eyeful from inside thanks to its large floor-to-ceiling windows.
That being said, you don’t come to brunch at Mon Ami Gabi for the views. Fortunately, the food won’t let you down. Obviously, the French toast here is incredible. The same can be said for the brioche toast and the warm baguette.
But just like the seating, there are no bad menu items here. The sautéed trout, crispy date-glazed bacon, and organic vanilla yogurt are all proof of that. Then, there is its bloody Mary, sparkling cocktails, and impressive selection of teas.
DW Bistro is one of the most popular Las Vegas brunch spots located off the Strip. For more than seven years, it’s been luring locals and tourists alike with a one-of-a-kind menu that marries Jamaican and New Mexican cuisines.
If you bring your sweet tooth to brunch, it’s going to be tough to choose between the pastry basket, chocolate chip pancakes, and challah French toast. Otherwise, the New Mexican slow-cooked pork omelet, and jerk-fried chicken and waffles are hard to resist.
