My Wife decided on the breakfast buffet at Caesar's. It sucked. the biscuits were like stale hockey pucks, and they weren't refilling the bacon. I asked for hot tea and got hot water and nasty Lipton tea bags.

Well, shi ... That'll learn ya! ;-) Never even heard of their buffet. There are so many to choose from and you landed a lemon. At least it wasn't Circus Circus. That is truely putrid.

I wanted to try that one at the Rio? that had all the world's cuisine on it.

Gad! We are such a decadent society at times.

I've had the buffet at Caesar's Cafe Lago several times and been very satisfied, but in all honesty I never tried the biscuits or the bacon. I'll have a made to order omelet, all the nova I can eat, and it's a lot (on toasted bagel's, which the server will gladly provide if asked) and last March as the buffet switched over to lunch offerings, I consumed mass quantities of Stone Crab claws, and although there was no mustard sauce offered, when I mentioned it to one of the chefs, he whipped me up some. It was a much appreciated effort, but he obviously didn't have Joe's recipe in front of him.

I'll be back at Caesar's at the end of the month, but plans are to check out the breakfast buffet at Wynn. On my day of departure I probably will have breakfast in Cafe Lago, but it will be before the buffet sets up.

Vegas is not the place for good cheap eats it was 30 years ago. On the whole, I think the variety is better, and the haute cuisine side has been expanded and definitely improved. These changes have come at the expense of the excellent standard homestyle meals that were used as loss leaders by the town back then--you made money from the gamblers--not the diners.

Perhaps it's just me, but all this fascination with fancy dining--pate, and lobster (for breakfast!!!!!!!!???????) and macadamia/pineapple crepes and...God knows what--probably has its place. But there has to be something between these hoity-toity "dining experiences" and Denny's and McDonald's (I actually think McDonald's doesn't do bad by breakfasts, which is more than I can say about the rest of their food, but the ambience leaves a lot to be desired). It used to be you could always find a place for a breakfast like Mom used to make--nothing fancy, just some combination of bacon, sausage, ham, eggs, pancakes, toast, biscuits, gravy, coffee and juice--maybe sometimes oatmeal or grits. These places didn't charge an arm and a leg, knowing that the kind of things they fixed you could do for yourself at home (if you had the time and chose to make biscuits and gravy rather than reading the morning news, and especially back when your life partner didn't also have to hold down a job to pay the mortgage but was a "homemaker"--one of the truly noble professions).

Like the once-great American Middle Class, the American Middle Class Breakfast is fast going the way of the passenger pigeon. Sic transit gloria mundi.

Niagra - sounds like you should have insisted on eating at the buffet at Paris. After reading all comments it sounded like the best. I have eaten at serveral buffets in Vegas (which I found all buffets to be overwelming, because I load my plate and then eat only a bite or two of each and then get filled up too quickly). I am only about 4 1/2 hrs. away from Tunica, MS, where there are about 9 casinos, and all the buffets there are ucky. Overpriced and meicore food. I think the next time I am in Vegas I will try Paris.
