Breakfast in Vegas Wed, 03/1/06 12:42 PM (permalink)
Anybody know any good places for breakfast in Las Vegas? We're going there for the first time later this month.

I saw a place on the Travel Channel called the Peppermill Inn on the Strip that looked interesting.

    Peppermill is a classic on the Strip, old Vegas, traditional coffee shop. Been trying to get there for years. Best new place in town is Hash House a Go Go, but you need a car. www.hashhouseagogo.com You won't believe the portions.

    Can never go wrong at Original Pancake House, inside Green Valley Ranch and at least one other location. Have the Dutch Baby or the Apple Pancake. You won't eat again til dinner. Paris buffet is particularly good.

      Thanks, Signman - we're renting a car, and the Hash House looks like an insane place to check out for breakfast.

        Best cheapest breakfast buffet...$5.95 at The Palms and it's as good as any. They even have a grill man right there who will cook you anything to order.
        You can park your rental right out front.

          Thanks, Steven - that sounds good, too. I had wanted to go to the Palms to eat at Garduno's, too, since I've eaten at the one in Scottsdale and really liked it.

            I never heard of that place...Fire up the flash player, they have a fun little movie to watch.

              Some people love the Peppermill, some do not. It is a "must do" for us every trip, one of my favorite places, heck, even my computer wallpaper is a picture of their neon-lit blue and purple booths with the indoor trees.
              For breakfast, I (or we) have had Steak 'n Eggs, Bone-in Ham 'n Eggs, Country Fried Steak 'n Eggs, Corned Beef Hash w/ 3 Basted Eggs, Greek Omelet, Veg Omelet. Wait Staff wear shorts, cocktail waitresses in long slinky black dresses bring "Eye-Openers."

              Some links to a review and their menu:

                Gizmolito, Thanks for the shot of the Peppermill interior. Ours shut down ten years ago and I think LV and Reno are the only locations left.

                I remember always being there very late at night when they were "watering" the indoor plants....really washing the dust off!

                They started to run into trouble because they only hired waitress' who looked good in their short dress uniforms. I miss those outfits.

                  I wonder how long they will remain on the Strip, since their little place is SO close to the Wynn...the property must be worth many times more than the restaurant or its revenue.

                  Like so many roadfood places or Drive-in Theaters...nevermind. Don't get me started!!

                    Sounds like we better eat there before it's gone.

                      We just got back from Vegas and I would recommend Paris (the casino-hotel) or Hash House a-Go-Go. Of course you are surrounded by good food in Vegas! It's their specialty!

                        Niagara, If you get tired of filling yourself up at breakfast I have an oddly peaceful suggestion.
                        After a few days of big breakfasts we found this lovely el fresco dining deck somewhere near the Imperial Palace I think.
                        It was up an outdoor escalator under a gigantic "M"
                        I think I had the english muffin with sausage,egg and cheese.
                        Excellent hash brown and coffee. With a free strip view.
                        I forget the name of it but it was very reasonable.

                          Stevencarry--that would be the McPlace with the clown we dare not name.
                          Replying to another stevencarry post: Garduno's is based in Albuquerque, has good fajitas, and (at least in Abq) good Sunday brunches. I don't remember if they have breakfast at either of the Las Vegas locations.

                          We lived in Las Vegas for four years. Besides any branch of the Original Pancake House or the Peppermill, try Blueberry Hill on east Flamingo (specialty is very good blueberry pancakes), or the Bay City Diner at the Golden Gate (Downtown, Fremont and Main), especially the late night specials like steak and eggs and their bargain shrimp cocktails (that's not breakfast, but what the heck). The coffee shops at the Orleans and Suncoast locals casinos also have good breakfasts.

                            It is a bit confusing, but there is a place called simple The Hash House on Decatur. Not Hash House "a Go Go" ... IT is a nice little, family-run cafe and the owner does wonderful things with all kinds of breakfast.

                            It is in my Top-Two breakfasts in the US.

                                  If you want a change of pace, go to Great Buns, east on Tropicana in a strip. It is a commercial bakery and has buns, bagels, and fresh bread right from the oven. Grab some milk or juice from the market nearby and you're set.
