I like quirky, local places for breakfast, although two of my faves are on The Strip. What I generally look for is quality food and a unique atmosphere. Here are my five favorite places to have breakfast in Las Vegas.
1. Cracked Egg
I’m not usually a chain restaurant fan, but I make an exception for the Cracked Egg. Only open from 6 a.m.-2 p.m. on weekdays (until 3 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays), the Cracked Egg has an extensive menu and they use fresh ingredients. Service is also always excellent.
Four locations in the valley: 6435 S. Rainbow, #100, Las Vegas, NV 89119; 7660 W Cheyenne Ave #125, Las Vegas, NV 89129; 5570 Painted Mirage #140, Las Vegas, NV 89149; 1000 N. Green Valley Parkway #480, Henderson, NV 89074
Pros: Great Selection & Fresh Food
Cons: Limited hours, usually a wait on weekends.
2. The Pink Pony Café
One of the few remaining, classic, 24-hour diners left in Las Vegas, The Pink Pony Café is must visit for breakfast any time of day. The menu is a directory of hundreds of items available any time you visit. The place is usually crowded, loud, and don’t expect excellent service. And, yet, I love it. Good, cheap, fill-you-up breakfast.
Location: Circus! Circus! 2880 Las Vegas Blvd S. Las Vegas, NV 89109-1138
Pros: 24-hour classic Las Vegas experience
Cons: Long waits, loud
3. Patisserie Manon
By far, my favorite French bistro in the Las Vegas valley is Patisserie Manon. If you’ve spent time in Paris, you’ll recognize right away that this place is the “real deal.” The menu is limited to a few classic French choices. But their bakery selections are melt in your mouth delicious. We love to pop in just to pick up a few croissants or a tart for later. Open 7 a.m.-7 p.m. and offers great service.
Location: (Summerlin) 8751 W. Charleston Blvd., Las Vegas, NV 89117
Pros: Classic French Pastries
Cons: Limited selection of regular menu items
4. Kailyn’s Kitchen
Don’t let the simple storefront location scare you away. This newcomer on the breakfast scene, in the southeast is an excellent choice for breakfast or brunch. In addition to the classic, American breakfast menu, they also do great burgers. Only open from 7 a.m.-3 p.m.
Location: 3430 E Tropicana Ave., Ste 6, Las Vegas, NV 89121
Pros: Classic American Menu & Fresh ingredients
Cons: Limited hours.
5. The Peppermill Restaurant & Fireside Lounge
A Las Vegas tradition, the Peppermill Restaurant, located in the heart of the famous Las Vegas Strip, is open 24/7. The service is always great, the portions ample, and the prices are pretty good. Extensive menu, including classic, American breakfast served all day and night. After your meal, be sure to pop in and check out the Fireside Lounge, yet another Vegas tradition.
Location: 2985 Las Vegas Blvd. S., Las Vegas, NV 89109
Pros: Great Selection, classic Vegas
Cons: Loud when crowded
