6 Best Breakfast Buffets in Las Vegas: Highlights, Prices

No trip to Vegas is complete without experiencing one of Sin City’s renowned buffets, and when you wake up feeling hungry, what better way to start the day than an all-you-can-eat feast?

Although Vegas’ buffets were hit hard by the covid pandemic – and breakfast choices are especially limited – a handful are back up and running, so here are our picks for the best of the bunch.

The Current Buffet Situation in Vegas

When covid struck, almost all of the hotels, resorts, casinos, restaurants and bars had to close – and buffets, being what they are, had a hard time reopening. After all, giant self-serve restaurants where people mingle and jostle for food are not at all suited to the post-covid age.

This means many Vegas buffets were unable to reopen and have been lost forever, but some did manage to open their doors again – albeit often with reduced hours.

There are currently far fewer breakfast options than there once were, but they do still exist, and some of the most famous buffets from pre-pandemic days have bounced back and are welcoming diners again.

Some now officially offer only “brunch”, but when they open at 8am or 9am, you can still go in for a morning meal – and for us, that counts as breakfast too, so we’ve included them on our list. So now let’s have a look at the top breakfast buffets that are currently open.

Best Breakfast Buffet in Las Vegas

1. Bacchanal Buffet, Caesars Palace

Bacchanal Buffet

Opening times

  • Brunch: Fri-Sun 9am-3pm

Prices

  • Adults: $54.99
  • Children 5-10: $27,50
  • Children Below 5: Free

Overview

Bacchanal Buffet is the largest and most extravagant of all the Vegas buffets. They don’t technically have a breakfast sitting, but since the buffet opens for brunch at 9am, it’s still a great place to go and fill up on a wide range of breakfast and brunch dishes.

The buffet boasts 15 daily chef’s specials and nine live kitchens where cooks prepare the food as you watch, allowing you to sample a mind-boggling array of creations from the US and the rest of the world.

Highlights

Since the chefs in each kitchen are constantly innovating, it’s hard to say what will be on offer at any one time. However, you’ll find all major world cuisines well represented, and the all-new roving dim sum carts are especially worth looking out for.

You’ll also see all your favorite breakfast items like outstanding eggs Benedict, scrambled eggs and a range of sausages – as well as a few other more unexpected treats such as green tea pancakes, crab avocado toast and truffle deviled eggs.

Reservations and dress code

Reservations are possible and can be made by following the link on the Bacchanal homepage. However, even with a reservation, wait times can be up to 45 minutes during peak hours.

Dress code is “casual”, so in other words, within reason, you can wear what you want.

Note that in Bacchanal, you only have 90 minutes to eat, which is shorter than most other places in town.

Overview

Wicked Spoon is without doubt one of Vegas’ best top-end buffets. It might not be able to match Bacchanal for the sheer range of food, but it makes up for it by offering a mix of classic favorites alongside some highly original culinary creations.

During the week, Wicked Spoon opens for breakfast from 8am to 11am while at the weekend, you can enjoy an indulgent brunch between 9am and 4pm.

You’ll find seven different food stations, including dedicated breakfast and brunch bars – along with an Asian station, an international station and more.

Highlights

Among the myriad delights at Wicked Spoon, look out for the smoked salmon with capers, onions, whipped cream and cheese served on a range of assorted bagels, the exceptional eggs Benedict or the more unusual Wicked Breakfast Pizza with maple hollandaise.

Other breakfast options include carnitas tacos served with salsa roja and pickled vegetables, the beef and lamb gyro with tzatziki, the lap cheong fried rice with Chinese black vinegar and the excellent dim sum selection.

Those with a sweet tooth – and a huge appetite – can even finish with a delicious dessert or two!

Reservations and dress code

Wicked Spoon is currently not accepting reservations for groups of under 20. For groups of 20 or more, you should contact the resort directly via the official website.

There is no dress code, so you can wear what you want – within reason. Just use your common sense if you don’t want to risk being turned away.

Overview

The Buffet at Bellagio has long been counted among the best in town, and although they call it “brunch”, it opens at 8am, so it might as well be breakfast – but just with a wider variety of delectable morsels to sample.

Like all the top buffets, this one boasts live-action kitchens where you can witness the beautifully prepared dishes being cooked up before your eyes.

As well as American breakfast and brunch classics, you’ll find other major cuisines all well represented – so your biggest problem is probably going to be deciding where to start.

Highlights

A visit to this buffet will be a treat for the tastebuds, whatever your preferences. Look out for the corn beef hash eggs Benedict or the made-to-order omelets – as well as the juicy carving sausages if you love meat.

If you enjoy Asian breakfast, the lap cheong fried rice is not to be missed, along with the potsticker dumplings. Those who prefer a sweet breakfast are also well looked after with options like French toast, crêpes or cinnamon rolls.

Fish and seafood brunch-style options include Alaskan cod and Atlantic salmon.

Reservations and dress code

It’s possible to reserve a VIP pass to skip the line. You can do so by following the link on the official homepage. Without a reservation, the wait times can be long.

Overview

The Buffet at Wynn is another of Vegas’ top high-end buffets and offers a short breakfast sitting on Mondays and Thursdays from 8am to 9am followed by a brunch sitting from 9am to 3pm.

From Friday to Sunday, there is no breakfast – but the gourmet brunch sitting runs from 8am to 3pm, so that’s even better!

Highlights

One of the breakfast and brunch highlights at Wynn is the eggs Benedict station. As you’d expect, the basic eggs Benedict is as good as you’ll find anywhere, but for the more adventurous, there are options like lobster Benedict or smoked salmon lox Benedict.

The Mexican and Latin Station serves up pork tamales along with bloody Mary ceviche, or if you prefer to go Asian, there’s a respectable selection of dim sum and sushi.

For those who prefer something sweet, options like Belgian waffles with cinnamon or brioche French toast with white chocolate and crème anglaise will have your mouth watering.

Reservations and dress code

The Buffet at Wynn doesn’t accept reservations, but for groups of up to six, you can take advantage of pre-paid priority seating, which guarantees you a spot in the line and sees you seated quicker than walk-ins – within about half an hour at most.

Overview

The MGM Grand may be among Vegas’ most famous hotels and resorts, but the breakfast and brunch buffet there is extremely reasonably priced – this is one of the best value options you’ll find.

This buffet is famed for its wide range of American favorites, and from Friday to Sunday, the price also includes bottomless mimosas and champagne. For a $9 supplement, you can also add bloody Marys, Bellinis and margaritas.

Highlights

Like any Las Vegas buffet worthy of the name, MGM Grand does a fantastic take on eggs Benedict. You can also enjoy a wide selection of other classics like sausage, bacon, smoked salmon, pancakes and waffles.

  • Brunch: Mon & Tue, Fri-Sun 8am-3pm

Prices

  Mon & Tue Fri-Sun
Adults    $26.99 $29.99
Children (5-11) $14.99 $15.99
Children below 5 Free Free

Overview

Another buffet that’s known for value – and another that’s called “brunch” but opens at 8 am, making it a smart choice for a hearty breakfast too.

This has always been more of a traditional-style buffet, so don’t expect as many individual servings or the live-action kitchens of most high-end places.

However, for the amount you pay, you can’t fail to be impressed by the range or quality of the food on offer, making it a great pick if you want to experience a traditional Vegas breakfast buffet without having to pay big bucks.

Highlights

Look out for made-to-order crêpes and omelets as well as the obligatory eggs Benedict. Alternatively, you can go for huevos rancheros, and there’s pork sausage, turkey sausage or applewood smoked bacon to choose from too.

Pancakes, cinnamon French toast, doughnuts and pastries are provided for those who like something sweet first thing in the morning, or you prefer something more exotic, opt for the sushi, dim sum or potsticker dumplings.

Reservations and dress code

The dress code is casual. Reservations are not required.

  • Address: Excalibur Hotel and Casino, 3850 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109
  • Phone: 702-597-7476

Honorable Mentions

Apart from the six buffets we’ve featured here, The Buffet at Luxor is another good option. It’s owned by MGM and is similar to Excalibur in both atmosphere and food offerings.

The Veranda Buffet at Four Seasons is also worth a look for those who prefer something a bit less intense.

Away from The Strip, two other breakfast buffets to look out for are the Garden Court Buffet at Main Street Station and The Market Place Buffet at The Resort at Summerlin.
