Brunch has become one of those must-do things if you’re visiting Las Vegas on a weekend.
We have lots of restaurants that offer that magical half breakfast, half lunch meal that will satisfy your mid-day food cravings.
Some feature all-you-can-eat food and many offer all-you-can-drink options. There are waffles, there are sandwiches, there are egg dishes. Basically, there’s a lot to choose from, so we thought we’d help you narrow it down a bit.
Here are five of our favorite brunch food items you can find in Vegas.
BACCHANAL BUFFET’S RED VELVET PANCAKES
You can watch the pancakes being made on a giant rotating griddle. Then, grab yourself a small individual plate of the delicious mini-sized pancakes, which are garnished with fresh berries.
We love the mini size. It means you can save room for all of the other brunch goodness at Bacchanal Buffet like lobster Benedict, crepes, steak and eggs and crab legs. Or if you really dig the pancakes as much as we do, you can go back for plate after plate after plate of them.
GIADA’S CHICKEN AND WAFFLES
We enjoy everything about brunch at celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis’ namesake restaurant GIADA at The Cromwell, from the lobster hash to the assorted pastries, but our favorite has to be the chicken and waffles.
Chicken and waffles is always a good bet for brunch and we love this Italian version. GIADA’s take includes cacciatore spiced chicken, a polenta waffle, Parmesan and cacciatore sauce. Buon appetito!
HASH HOUSE A GO GO’S TRACTOR DRIVER COMBO
Hash House A Go Go at The LINQ is a great place for brunch…especially if you’ve had a few too many cocktails the night before. They serve massive portions of all of your favorites including breakfast scrambles, hashes, Benedicts and their famous flapjacks.
Our favorite is the Tractor Driver Combo. It’s the best of breakfast all on one plate. You get two eggs, a choice of bacon, sausage or potatoes with one giant buttermilk flapjack.
For an extra dollar, make it an HH Famous Flapjack in a choice of blueberry, brown sugar banana, blackberry granola, Snickers, apple cinnamon or pumpkin flavor.
PAYARD PATISSERIE’S CROQUE MONSIEUR
If you like the lunch part of brunch and want a savory sandwich, the croque monsieur at Payard Patisserie at Caesars Palace is très bon.
This French favorite features smoked ham, creamy béchamel sauce and Swiss cheese. It’s paired with an oven roasted tomato and mixed green salad.
Prefer eating a breakfast food for brunch? Just make it a croque madame by adding a sunny side egg on top.
Payard Patisserie also has another version of a croque sandwich – the avocado toast, which includes avocado mash, a fried egg and heirloom tomatoes on rustic country bread.
STERLING BRUNCH’S CHAMPAGNE AND CAVIAR
As soon as you sit down, Champagne will be poured and it won’t stop until you want it to. We’re talking bottomless glasses of Perrier-Jouët and unlimited American Sturgeon Caviar.
If caviar’s not your thing, don’t worry. There are plenty of other delicious food options available like Belgian waffles, Alaskan king crab legs, lamb, prime rib, oysters and more.
