Many things have been said about waking up in Las Vegas (a lot of them by Katy Perry), but what do you eat once you get out of bed? Whether you’re having breakfast at 4 a.m. after leaving a nightclub, fashionably late at noon, or at a more conventional morning hour, there is no shortage of places to fuel whatever comes next.
From bacon and egg sandwiches that can cure hangovers to fancy patio brunches doling out bottomless mimosas, here’s a whole list of great breakfasts in Las Vegas.
If you’re really, really hungry, it’s hard to beat the massive portions at Hash House A Go Go. With six locations in Las Vegas (including one at The Linq on the Strip and one at the Plaza downtown), Hash House A Go Go serves everything from sage fried chicken and waffles to blueberry lemon curd pancakes. Get the bacon waffles if you’re in serious need of sustenance.
Brunch at Thomas Keller’s Bouchon presents an opportunity for French fare in Venice…or at the Venetian, anyway. Enjoy your Petit Déjeuner Américaine (that’s an American breakfast of eggs, meat, and toast) in the airy dining room or outside by the resort’s canals. The pastries are a must here.
Mon Ami Gabi at Paris Las Vegas is a long-standing favorite thanks to its sun-dappled patio, which makes for a perfect perch for people-watching. Grab a seat by the sidewalk and pair crepes with a St. Germain Spritz or two.
This award-winning local breakfast chain offers a no-frills alternative to the glitzy Las Vegas breakfast—because sometimes, you just want some really good biscuits and gravy. You’ll find that at Egg & I and Eggworks (seven locations, six under the name Eggworks, one under the name Egg & I) along with chipotle turkey benedicts, bacon avocado omelets, and French toast stuffed with eggs and sausage.
Here’s the scenario: You wake up at the Cosmopolitan, desperately in need of a greasy breakfast sandwich. You’re in luck. Eggslut is just downstairs. Don’t be dismayed by the long line; it’s absolutely worth waiting your turn for the famous Fairfax sandwich: scrambled eggs, cheddar, caramelized onions, and sriracha mayo on brioche. The counter-service restaurant also serves cheeseburgers, biscuits, and chocolate chip cookies.
The mission at John Church’s breakfast and lunch restaurant is simple: classic diner food, but better. Located at Las Vegas Motorcoach Resort, Johnny C’s Diner serves iconic American breakfast items with Vegas flare. Case in point: pan-seared foie gras pancakes. Choose from staples such as omelets, steak and eggs, and pancakes, or try something unique, like creme brulee French toast.
The Peppermill is one of those Las Vegas landmarks you have to have breakfast at least once—so it might as well be tomorrow morning around 2 a.m. The 24-hour restaurant/lounge is best enjoyed pre-dawn when the 1970’s decor is at its most surreal. From French toast ambrosia to chorizo and eggs, the menu is extensive here. Order breakfast anytime, along with a tequila sunrise or blue Hawaiian, because why not?
Natalie Young’s Downtown Las Vegas restaurant serves simple, fresh, breakfast food with a focus on local ingredients. Located on Carson Avenue, just a short walk from Fremont, Eat is known for its warm cinnamon biscuits loaded with strawberry compote, truffled egg sandwich topped with wild mushrooms and bacon, and its inviting atmosphere.
