Best brunch in Las Vegas
Weekend brunch here feels like a celebration with a very Parisian vibe. While still in the casual range, many take the opportunity to freshen up for the occasion. Michael Mina’s elevated takes on brunch staples are elegant, with decadent options like foie gras parfait and thick brioche French toast with mascarpone and orgeat syrup. The “Everlasting Rosé Brunch” pairs your sticky buns and croissant Benedicts with endless pink refreshment.
Inside this elegant bistro and oyster bar you’ll find French country fare modeled after the cuisine of the original bouchons of Lyon. Delicious for dinner, it’s even better during brunch, when light streams through tall windows and guests chatter on the garden patio over coffee and flaky pastries. Indulge in the Bouchon French toast, with warm layers of brioche, custard and fresh fruit with maple syrup; or opt for the exceptional chicken and waffles, elevated with a bacon chive waffle and sauce chasseur.
Honey Salt is one of the best of the brunch bunch, thanks to its menu of hit-the-spot dishes that cater to breakfast indulgers and the health-conscious (hello green juice and the Grain Power bowl). Standouts include the cornflake crusted French toast with vanilla bean custard, blueberry pancakes, biscuits and gravy, and the Backyard Favorite Burge. Suffering from a hangover? The all-you-can-drink Hair of the Dog menu (bloodys, micheladas, draft beer) will have you ready to do it all again in no time.
This all-you-can-eat brunch feast is well worth the price tag. For $59, the menu here combines several different stations with made-to-order plates from the kitchen. Stop by the juice station for a pick-me-up then hit up the Farm Basket station for fresh baked goods. Supplement your grazing with panettone french toast, loco moco, or harissa shrimp and grits. The bloody mary bar is also there to get you sorted.
In the suburb of Henderson, you'll find fresh fare, friendly environs, and a bold brunch menu. You could easily be happy with a fresh-baked muffin, juice, and specialty latte to-go, but it’s best to settle in and give your diet the day off. Start with a mimosa (with eight choices like blackberry or prickly pear), then indulge in the likes of strawberry shortcake French toast, peaches and cream pancakes, pork belly Benedict, or a duck and cheese omelet. Grab a seat on the patio to enjoy the breeze.
With its Italian-influenced menu and lovely setting, this three-meal restaurant inside the Four Seasons is like a secret escape. Weekend brunch is served buffet-style, with breakfast panini, house-smoked salmon and cold-pressed juice. There’s a fresh peanut butter station with fresh jams, but the highlight is a chef-attended donut machine where you can pick the glaze, sugar, and toppings to customize your fresh fried delight.
Bally’s Sunday-only Sterling Brunch (at BLT Steak) is an upscale affair. Yes, it’s all-you-can-eat, but no mere pancakes or eggs benny on this menu. Here you’ll find caviar and bottomless champagne, giant gruyere popovers, oysters on the half shell, lobster tail, and filet mignon. You’ll pay for all this, sure. But there’s a reason it’s been running for more than 30 years.
This Wynn restaurant has a prime spot on the Lake of Dreams, a lovely setting for a relaxed Sunday Jazz Brunch. Enjoy Dixieland-style jazz and blues from a live ensemble while sipping pineapple Bellinis. Start with a visit to the SS Lakeside: a large boat filled with Alaskan king crab legs, jumbo shrimp, tuna poke, and oysters on the half shell. Made-to-order dishes include indulgent pastries, lemon-ricotta pancakes, crab cake eggs Benedict with miso hollandaise, and more.
For brunch with a kick, locals flock to DW Bistro, an off-Strip destination known for its friendly service, packed weekend brunch and creative collision of flavors. Those flavors are mainly Jamaican and New Mexican, resulting in such morning favorites as sweet sopapillas, New Mexican slow-cooked pork omelette and jerk-fried chicken and waffles. Order a side of the jalapeño bacon, and don’t skip the pastry basket filled with warm treats like blueberry and white chocolate scones.
Waterside meals in Las Vegas usually involve a pool or an oversized fountain. Not at Marché. This neighborhood bistro and wine shop in Northwest Vegas enjoys a coveted lakeside locale, which is best appreciated during the Sunday brunch. Expect sunshine, bottomless champagne and French-infused temptations like buckwheat crepes with seasonal fruit or croque madame. By the time you’re deciding between bread pudding and fruit tart for dessert, you’ll have forgotten you’re in Las Vegas, which is entirely the point.
The in-house butcher shop at Echo & Rig guarantees a great steak-and-eggs dish. The brunch menu also includes meaty options like a steakhouse scramble, short rib hash, and thick grilled bacon. Delicious standards like buttermilk pancakes with house-made syrup and Belgian waffles are equally tasty. Kick things off with bottomless mimosas or something from the expertly-crafted cocktail menu.
Weekend brunch at Mandalay Bay is no ordinary affair. Mexican flavors dominate the menu, with some Peruvian surprises thrown in. Start with a tequila drink like the Grapefruit Serrano Fizz or a Tangarita, then sample an unlimited selection of dishes like drunken Peruvian toast with pisco syrup, chilaquiles, churro tots, lobster corn cakes, or prickly pear chia parfait.
For a different kind of brunch experience, try La Cave. The butler-style brunch means that you can sit back and choose what you wish from selections that the servers bring around tableside. There’s cinnamon apple waffles, truffle mushroom grits, bacon and egg flatbread, Snickers pancakes, and more. Supplement the feast with bottomless libations like bloody marys, mojitos, mimosas, and sangrias.
How about beautiful views of Lake Jacqueline with your bottomless mimosas (or palomas or sangria) and unlimited plates? Sunday brunch at Americana Las Vegas features diverse dishes like red beet hummus, penang mussels, brie toast with apple jam, shrimp and grits, and eggs Benedict with yuzu hollandaise. Soak up the scenery from indoors or on the lovely patio.
Known primarily for its concert calendar and folk art-filled walls, the House of Blues also cooks a mean weekend buffet brunch accompanied by live gospel singers. Whether you worship at church or the church of chicken and waffles, House of Blues’s gospel brunch is a verified blast. You'll sing, you’ll toast, you’ll clap and you’ll stuff yourself silly on all-you-can-eat goodies. You’ll probably leave dancing, and you definitely won’t leave hungry.
Eating at Yardbird is just plain fun, from the rustic-chic decor to the lip-smacking cocktails to the culinary lineup of playful Southern fare. On the menu are some standard items you’ll find at dinner (fried green tomato BLT, Mama’s biscuits with crispy chicken), but don’t miss brunch faves like the dulce de leche waffle, cinnamon apple hand pies, or the smoked brisket huevos rancheros. Oh, there’s a kale salad too (with moonshine raisins).
With its airy interior hovering over the Strip, Giada De Laurentiis’s eponymous restaurant was built for weekend brunch, and it’s fortunately available on Fridays too. The tasting menu includes a pastry basket and antipasto platter followed by your choice of entrées and sweets. Pair that salmon cake Benedict and lemon ricotta cookie ice cream sandwich with limitless La Marca mimosas. Still have room? Go for the build-your-own brownie to finish.
Imagine a large Italian family gathered around heaping plates of orecchiette and sausage, grandma’s meatballs and panettone French toast, and you have a pretty good picture of weekend brunch at Buddy V’s. The Cake Boss’s Strip eatery doesn’t bother with such daintiness as yogurt parfaits and kale salads. Rather, it serves a hearty, all-you-can-eat buffet heavy on Italian favorites like panzanella salad, zeppole and chicken Parmesan. Time your meal right, and you won’t need to eat again until tomorrow.
