Top 10 Places to Enjoy Brunch in Las Vegas
Laze the morning (and afternoon) away eating, gossiping, and drinking your hangover away. Bottoms up!
In a town where it’s sometimes hard to find restaurants open for lunch, a big fancy brunch on the other hand is a rite of passage. Making it somewhat of a boozy brunch wins you extra points – whether it’s a big pour of A-list champagne, bottomless mimosas, or a Bloody Mary with all the fixin’s. Here are my picks for the top ten brunches in town.
This tucked-away Mandalay Bay Mexican joint was my go-to spot for a very long time when I lived in Vegas – and now they have some new items on the menu. (Not to mention a new second locale at Forum Shops.) I’ve always loved the concept: a list of shared plates that the group can keep ordering from until absolutely stuffed. We’re talking tres leches French toast, creamy Peruvian shrimp and grits with a kick, and Serrano ham waffle with manchego cheese. And for just $10 more, enjoy bottomless mimosas – I can vouch for their generosity on the refills.
Border Brunch is served every Saturday & Sunday, 10am-3pm.

Warning: This is such an off-Strip hot spot for locals that you’d better get there early for weekend brunch, because there can be quite a wait. (Don’t worry – there’s a bar.) The menu has Jamaican and New Mexican (my home state) flair, so fun options include jalapeno bacon on the breakfast sandwich, a slow-cooked pork omelet, and jerk fried chicken and waffles. Mm, so good.
DW Bistro serves weekend brunch on Saturdays (10am-3pm) and Sundays (10am-2pm).

Veranda Weekend Breakfast Buffet at Four Seasons
Famous for its donut machine and Bloody Mary bar, the weekend breakfast buffet at Four Seasons is a see-and-be-seen staple for local power players and in-the-know visitors. The atmosphere is comfortable and chic, with delicious stations to fill up at (who can resist a perfect bagel with creamy cream cheese choices) – and extra options on the menu. No detail is too small, down to the iced cubes made of tea so your iced tea stays cold but never watered down.
The weekend breakfast buffet is served every Saturday & Sunday, 8am – 1pm.
3960 S Las Vegas Blvd., (702) 632-5000 fourseasons.com
Popular Wynn tapas and wine bar at night, delicious power lunch spot by day. But on Sunday, the place really shines, during a decadent “butler-style” brunch. The only one of its kind, La Cave’s brunch allows diners to pick and choose small plates as if they were at a buffet – except that the buffet comes to you. Servers make the rounds with mouth-watering options like eggs Benedict with chorizo and short rib hash – and you just eat and eat to your heart’s content. Add a few Bloody Marys from the Bottomless Brunch Cocktail menu, and your Sunday will never be the same.
The “butler-style” brunch is served on Sundays, 10:30am – 2:30pm.

Sterling Brunch at BLT Steak
The Sterling Brunch at Bally’s Steakhouse with its unlimited caviar, champagne, and a rose for each lady was a beloved institution before Bally’s Steakhouse shut its doors, and now it’s back after the restaurant re-opened as BLT Steak. All the same great over-the-top fixings, plus BLT’s famous popovers and a more modern décor? See you there.
Sundays beginning at 9:30am.

If you find yourself out near Summerlin, Marche Bacchus is an absolute requirement. The Euro-style outdoor patio overlooking Lake Jacqueline is the perfect place to dig into lunch any day, but Sunday brunch is extra-special. French fare includes artisan cheese plates, mouth-watering salads, buckwheat crepes, and truffled grits – enjoy over a bottle of crisp white wine you pick out yourself in charming wooden crates at the entry.
Sunday brunch is served 10am – 4pm.

You might have seen this little café-that-could on a recent American Express commercial, and Vegas couldn’t be prouder. This casual Downtown gem is open only for breakfast and lunch, making it a great option for brunch any day of the week – dig in to a truffled egg sandwich with chives and feta (my favorite), “killer” grilled cheese on sour dough (also a favorite), and huevos motulenos (also a – oh never mind). It’s all delicious!
Eat serves breakfast daily starting at 8am.

Trust the great Julian Serrano to prepare a lakeside feast to make your Sunday brunch extra special. At Bellagio’s new hotspot Lago, a stunning view of the five-star resort’s famous “dancing” fountains is just the beginning. (The patio is truly one of the very best spots in all of Vegas.) Dig into freshly baked cinnamon rolls, zeppoles and bombolones to start, before choosing an antipasti, entrée, and dessert from the pre-fix menu. Highlights include the tasty duck and poleta and sinful raviolone, which is filled with truffle ricotta and topped with an egg yolk. Dessert includes the classic tiramisu, my favorite Panettone pudding, and the crowd-pleasing Nutella crespelle.
Brunch served Sundays, 11am – 2:30pm
3600 Las Vegas Blvd., (866) 259-7111 bellagio.com
Jazz Brunch at Country Club
Everything at Wynn is a classic, and none more so than its Country Club overlooking the resort’s famous golf course. Sunday brunch is a real treat, with live jazz music and all-you-can-eat New Orleans-style offerings. My favorite stations? Crab legs, oysters, and spicy sausages. Yum.
Jazz Brunch is served Sunday from 10am – 2pm.
3131 S Las Vegas Blvd, (702) 770-3315 wynnlasvegas.com
Hash House A Go Go
Oops – drank too much last night? No worries, Vegas has you covered, with five locations of Hash House and its famously large portions that can soak up any rough night with ease. The “side” biscuits are as big as my head, and farm scrambles (one has fresh salmon, basil and brie – enough said) pile so high you’ll do a double take. Plus an array of hashes (obviously), flapjacks and waffles, and down home favorites like sage fried chicken.
5 locations; including The LINQ Hotel, Plaza Hotel, & Rio All-Suites Hotel. hashhouseagogo.com
Editors Bonus Pick
If house-made croissants and a bottomless glass of rosé sounds like the perfect way to start your day, then head to the weekend brunch at Michael Mina’s Bardot Brasserie! Enjoy hors d’oeuvres like seasonal fruit and a king crab crepe or indulge on thickly sliced brioche french toast. Everything about this bustling French Bistro is a delight.
Brunch is served Saturday & Sunday, 10am – 2pm.
