The Best Breakfast Spots In Las Vegas

It’s the most important meal of the day (or night). Here’s where to do it right.

We’ll take a simple Las Vegas breakfast over brunch any day. But before you start writing an angry email defending mimosas and egg-topped burgers, hear us out. You won’t have to wait two hours for a table, the service is far less hectic, and you’ll usually be surrounded by calm, caffeinated people instead of hungover tourists who might’ve lost thousands of dollars last night. 

If you’re scheduling a morning meeting or just need to refuel with a heaping plate of bacon after a big night out, head to one of these spots. But if you’re specifically looking for the best restaurants in Las Vegas, we’ve got a guide for that, too.

There are very few guarantees in Las Vegas, but you can always count on breakfast at Bouchon being the highlight of your week. It’s great for large groups that want to start the day on a high note before your friends start throwing back tequila shots. The menu is classic French, but make sure you order the merguez hash or at least get a plate of it to share. Just be warned that you’re still going to spend a lot (think a barebones minimum of $50 per person) even though it’s more casual than The French Laundry, and they’re only open for breakfast Thursday through Sunday.

Remember the joy you’d get as a child when you’d pass by a donut shop and see the neon “hot” sign glowing? That sign never disappointed, unlike your parents as they continued driving to your soccer practice. The Henry, located in The Cosmopolitan and open from 12am-2pm, can help you recapture that feeling of excitement. Get the made-to-order beignets with fresh lemon curd and the warm donuts with candied bacon, peanut butter glaze, and banana pudding dipping sauce.

The banana bread at Fine Company is so good that people start lining up half an hour before they open at 10am. But don’t be too bummed if they sell out by the time you arrive—they also have fantastic breakfast potatoes and one of the best acai bowls in the city. The space feels like your stylish, Elle Decor-inspired friend’s living room, and it’s in an outdoor mall away from the chaos on the Strip. Everyone, including Lululemon-clad moms just out of yoga and tourists from Red Rock Casino across the street, come here for a good casual meal.

You stumble out of the insanity of Fremont Street’s bars and street performers and realize that the sun is rising. It’s 7am and you can’t be held responsible for your actions if you don’t put some coffee into your body soon. You can find an excellent cup and some great breakfast options at Publicus. The chimichurri steak and eggs are great, but our favorite dish is the Mahalo Bento, which has eggs, spam, rice, kimchi, and mac salad. Once you’re done, you’ll forget that you came here for just a cup of coffee.

Salt & Ivy opens at 6am, so you can pop in for breakfast after partying all night or just getting up early to hop on the treadmill. Order the dutch baby pancake with smoked salmon, a sweet-and-salty protein boost that’s one of the best things on the menu. Their massive outdoor patio is decked out with colorful cushions and lush greenery, and it’s the perfect place to eavesdrop on your fellow morning people. They don’t take reservations, so be prepared to wait if you don’t get there before the breakfast rush.

If you’ve ever come to Vegas for work, you know how hard it can be to get a meal in when you’re swamped with meet-ups and answering emails. Before too much chaos ensues, head to this remodeled diner/deli right on Convention Center Drive. The large dining space and patio provide enough room for breakfast or lunch meals that turn into meetings, while the efficient takeout operation lets you grab a bagelwich or hot pastrami on rye to get you through the day. If you need a little sugar buzz to get you to dinner, try the black and white shake topped with a classic black and white cookie.

“Grand” is an understatement to describe the Vegas outpost of this NYC spot. The massive, sunny European bistro is the perfect place to debrief on the night before while you stare at the view of the gardens and contemplate which gigantic seafood and bagel tower to order. The house salmon is a classic, the bruleed grapefruit cocktail will make you want to buy a blowtorch, and if you’re really looking to ball out, you should add trout roe or caviar to your soft scrambled eggs. No matter what, don’t forget to buy some sticky buns from the to-go cart up front.

You won’t be the first person to walk into The Bagel Cafe, see the deli counter and pastry cases, and forget that you came here for bagels. But that distraction (and temptation) won’t last long when the host seats you at a table and you look at the menu printed as a newspaper. Get any of the 20 different types of freshly baked bagels paired with one of their spreads or as an egg sandwich—just make sure you order at least one order of potato pancakes for the table. It’s a clutch spot for those that ended up at the after after party since their breakfast is served all day.

When you need a break from the casino dungeons, head to Overlook Grill on the fourth floor of The Cosmopolitan for a poolside bite. Settle into one of the neon lime chairs while nursing a green juice, then dive into the breakfast burrito with chorizo and crispy potatoes. If you want something sweet, get the cinnamon roll french toast with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and bask in the attention of everyone watching your meal get bruleed tableside. Once you’re all fueled up, you can decide if you'd rather go for a swim or hit up a day club.

We know that you were assigned to read The Count of Monte Cristo at some point in your life. We also know you probably never finished it. We’re not entirely sure what the book and a ham and cheese french toast sandwich have to do with each other, but we do know that you can make up for your childhood laziness by ordering one at The Cracked Egg. There are five locations and they all feel super familiar, probably because they look like every comfortable diner you’ve ever been to and have menus of breakfast classics to match. As an added bonus, this location in the Rainbow Sunset Pavilion has an outdoor patio.

Sometimes, breakfast is an afterthought, but thankfully, that’s not the case at Makers & Finders, a coffee shop in the Arts District. Their excellent coffee is good enough that they could get away serving that alone, but their creative South and Central American breakfast dishes deserve just as much attention. Get the breakfast empanada skillet for the savory portion of your meal, then the churro waffle for a sweet finish. 

Nowadays, seeing chicken and waffles on a menu is as common as getting an Instagram ad for that thing you were just googling. But Gritz Cafe is a reminder of how good this dish can be—though their menu covers a lot more ground, with things like po’boys, grits, and hot-link omelets. When you need to feel like you’re not in Vegas for an hour or two, head here for the large portions, kind service, and food you usually find on a different coast.

This lounge on the Strip is always packed, and once you and your friends endure the inevitable 20-minute wait and see the massive plates of food pass you by, you’ll begin to understand why. The all-day breakfast menu can be a bit overwhelming, but just stick with the omelet side—especially the Maserati omelet with meat sauce and parmesan cheese that’s exactly as good as it sounds.

Bringing your friends somewhere called Eggslut might be met with more confused looks than that time you picked an Airbnb with a chicken coop in the backyard. But once you go to the second floor of The Cosmopolitan and your friends see the line that has now reached the elevator, they’ll begin to take you and your decision-making skills more seriously. You can’t go wrong with any of the egg sandwiches on the menu, but we almost always go with the Fairfax. It has caramelized onions and Sriracha mayo, and is the type of recommendation that will have you back in charge of the hotel reservations in no time.

If one of your friends insists on driving out to the Hoover Dam because they did a school project on it when they were 14, use the trip as an opportunity to visit Weiss Deli. It’s located in the Green Valley Plaza, right on the way to the large collection of water you’re about to go stare at. This Jewish deli is almost always full, but after the usual wait time of 10-15 minutes, you’ll be able to get your hands on one of their excellent breakfast sandwiches. Having to endure listening to your friends as they see who can make the most “dam” puns will be a little easier with some food in you.
