I love eating brunch more than I love eating any other meal. And I have good reasons for this. I like having the option of choosing and combining breakfast, lunch, and dinner into one meal!
After all, how else can you justify having pancakes and some fried chicken and spaghetti all at the same time? A friend of mine actually inspired me to write this post. I’d invited her to brunch, and she explained to me that she’d never been to brunch before and didn’t know what to expect.
I used to live in a small town in Texas, and the availability of various gourmet foods in Las Vegas dwarfs pretty much anywhere I’ve ever lived. So, if you’ve never been to Las Vegas, make sure you check out for yourself how delicious any of the following Las Vegas brunch spots are!
1 – Bardot Brasserie
Bardot Brasserie serves brunch from 10 AM until 2:30 PM every Saturday and Sunday. If you enjoy a casual atmosphere, but still one that’s nice to take someone to, you’ll love this French restaurant. You’ll find it in the Aria, one of the Strip’s finest hotels.
I love the quiche Lorraine, but you might prefer one of their five variations of Eggs Benedict. If, on the other hand, you have a sweet tooth, the hunter’s waffle with duck confit or the brioche French toast might excite you more.
They also serve an extensive selection drinks, such as four different champagnes and an endless glass of rosé for only $25. That might sound expensive to you, but I can get my money’s worth quickly with a deal like that.
2 – CRAFTKitchen
Chef Jaret aims at providing dining with a personality at CRAFTKitchen, and you can order brunch there every Saturday and Sunday from 9 AM until 3 PM. The staff bases the menu on what Chef Jaret feels like cooking and what fresh items he can find at the market.
Some of the special brunch items from past menus include short rib has and smoked salmon on pretzel rolls, with cream cheese, naturally. Think comfort food, and you’ll have an idea of what to expect.
In fact, you’ll have a hard time finding anything with a value better than the bottomless mimosas that CRAFTKitchen serves. All of the pastries are homemade. You can order even delivery from CRAFTKitchen via Uber Eats, but I suggest actually eating there. The restaurant presents a nice ambiance.
Chef Jaret says that he grew up reading cookbooks instead of the fictional stories his classmates read. He started cooking in his youth, when he learned to cook from his parents and grandparents.
He worked as a chef at the Ritz-Carlton in multiple cities, including Maui, Las Vegas, and San Francisco. He also served as the executive pastry chef at Le Cirque and Circo at Bellagio and at the Red Rock Resort.
He opened CRAFTKitchen in 2015 with a goal of expressing his creativity in the kitchen. He only uses ingredients he’d be willing to server to his family. He aims for unforgettable, energetic, flavorful food.
3 – Tableau
You can order brunch at Tableau on Saturdays and Sundays between 7 AM and 2:30 PM. Tableau, like most of the restaurants at the Wynn Las Vegas, focuses on seasonal, fresh ingredients at all their meals, including brunch.
You can sample such specialties there as strawberry blintz pancakes, duck hash and eggs, soft shell crab sandwiches, and heirloom tomato salad.
You also have the options to dine inside or outside by the pool. I encourage you to make reservations, although they don’t absolutely require it. Also, you should dress “resort casual” while dining there. This means no tank tops or swimsuits. Also, leave any children under the age of five with a babysitter.
4 – Egg Works
The Egg & I opened in 1988 but changed its name in 2005 to Egg Works. They serve some of the finest breakfast food in the Las Vegas area. They also serve lunch, like sandwiches and homemade soup. Many people swear by their Cincinnati chili, which they serve in five different ways.
You can expect huge servings of home-style American breakfast food. Locals love Egg Works because of the affordable prices and comfortable, casual atmosphere. Avoid Egg Works if you hate crowds, though, or get there early. They open at 6 AM, so you can beat the rush with an early-bird attitude.
Egg Works has won multiple awards, including Best of Las Vegas by Trip Expert, Best of Groupon 2015, TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 2014, and Best of Las Vegas by Las Vegas Review-Journal 2015 and 2016.
Egg Works now has seven locations to choose from. So, it shouldn’t be a problem finding a location, no matter what part of Las Vegas you’re located in.
5 – Mon Ami Gabi
Mon Ami Gabi serves breakfast daily from 7 AM to 11 AM. You can find Mon Ami Gabi at Paris Hotel and Casino, which is appropriate enough, as Mon Ami Gabi is a French restaurant. (I already warned you of my admiration for French cooking.)
They divide their breakfast menu into the following categories:
- Fruit and cereal
- Skinny crepe pancakes
- Classic crepes
- Eggs Benedicts
- Brunch specialties
- Not breakfast
On the weekends, they serve brunch from 11 AM to 3 PM, but they limit the number of breakfast items available during weekend brunch to the following:
- Organic vanilla yogurt
- Fresh fruit salad
- Fruit and berry bouquet
- Breakfast trio (yogurt, fruit salad, and breakfast pudding)
- French toast
- Eggs Benedict
- Corned beef hash and eggs
If you sign up for their email newsletter, they give you a coupon good for $20 off your next visit. I love free food, so I like that offer a lot.
If you love French bistro cooking, you’ll have a hard time finding a better spot in Vegas for that kind of food than Mon Ami Gabi.
6 – Bouchon
I like another French bistro in Vegas called Bouchon at the Venetian. Thomas Keller runs the kitchen here, and the décor provides a nice contrast to the Italian-themed décor throughout the rest of the property.
If you enjoy Sunday brunch with drinks, I recommend the champagne cocktails, especially the peach bellini. You can also order waffles or Eggs Benedict here, but I love the croque madame better than any of the other options.
Lots of people dine here for brunch, and they’ve placed the seats close enough together that someone who hates crowds might experience some discomfort.
I’ve read several accounts of omelets here with copious amounts of bacon. Diners have rated the quiche highly, too. Affordable oysters might top the menu, though. they sell these for market price, but I’ve seen diners rave about the value prices on such fresh seafood.
7 – Eggslut
Alvin Cailan founded Eggslut as a chef-driven, gourmet restaurant in 2011 with an obvious focus on eggs. Diners who love innovative comfort food fall in love with Eggslut immediately. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a beginner foodie or if you’ve been enjoying fine dining for decades, you’ll find something to inspire discussion on Eggslut’s menu.
The chefs at Eggslut aim to make eggs an all-day affair instead of just a breakfast staple, and they want you to have an experience, not just a meal. They achieve high-quality, consistent dining with friendly servers. The food AND the staff have personality.
Their bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich includes bacon, a fried egg, and cheddar cheese. They serve it in a brioche bun with a healthy dollop of chipotle ketchup.
They also serve a dish called “the slut,” which consists of a coddled egg served on top of pureed potatoes. They cook it in a glass jar and serve it with baguette slices.
They also brag, and rightfully so, about the gaucho, a steak sandwich featuring chimichurri, red onions, and arugula. Of course, they serve it topped with a fried egg.
You’ll find Eggslut in the Cosmopolitan, one of the nicest resorts in Vegas.
If I had to choose seven places to eat brunch in Las Vegas, I would choose these. I have my own specific tendencies when it comes to brunch, though. I clearly prefer French food over almost anything, for example.
You probably have your own ideas about the best brunch spots in Vegas, is there anything that I missed?
