The Las Vegas Strip has plenty of options to get breakfast – and while some are awesome (I’m looking at you Eggslut), it’s been my experience that most are, well, meh. If you love a really good breakfast as much as I do, the next time you head to Sin City, you might want to think about heading off The Strip, where you can find some really incredible restaurants for breakfast and brunch to get your day started right.

Listed in no particular order:

Mr. Mamas

Mr. Mamas, Las Vegas

A locals favorite, this place is not about the glitz or glamor you’ll find on the Las Vegas Strip.  No, it’s a laidback place that just does breakfast right – which might be just the thing you are looking for after a night spent at the blackjack tables or at the club.  The menu includes breakfast staples like biscuits and gravy, corned beef hash and eggs, French toast, and a whole lot more.

Mr. Mamas, 693 S Jones Blvd, Las Vegas, (702) 220-9224

Truffles N Bacon Cafe

Buko Pandan Pancakes at Truffles N Bacon Cafe in Las Vegas (Truffles N Bacon Cafe)

You may have seen this spot featured on the Food Network’s Ginormous Food Show, showcasing their “Belly Of The Beast” – a massive burger weighing 10 pounds that feeds 8 people, but that’s probably a little to heavy to start your day. No problem. This joint has all kinds of tasty and unique options like a Pork Belly Omelette, Breakfast Mac n’ Cheese, and their Sinful Tots (tater tots tossed in truffle oil, shredded cheese, bacon jam and topped with pepperocini and a chipotle ranch drizzle) and .

Rise and Shine: A Steak and Eggs Place

Rise and Shine’s Ribeye Steak and Eggs (Rise and Shine)

There are two locations of this popular breakfast spot in Las Vegas in Spring Valley and the spot I am partial to, the Southern Highlands which is a quick 5 minute jaunt off the Freeway as you make your way back to Southern California.

The place is pretty cool, with colorful flower-like umbrellas decorating the ceiling and a wait staff outfitted in pajamas.  The place offers up a menu of huge omelettes, some unique pancakes (Oreo Butterscotch Pancakes anyone?), and, of course, some really good steak and eggs that isn’t just any ol’ steak and eggs, we’re talking about a ribeye here, people.

Park on Freemont

A Park and Freemont breakfast sandwich (Park and Freemont)

If your Las Vegas trip takes you to downtown, this is the spot to start your day. Located on Freemont Street (just outside of “The Freemont Street Experience”), this gastropub has a selection of breakfast sandwiches (setting you back just 8 bucks) and a variety of toasts including avocado, Nutella, and “The Gold Standard” – with house made ricotta spread, blackberry jam, and fresh garden chives.   P

Park on Freemont offers a more extensive menu for brunch on weekends that you can wash down with one of their selections of Bloody Marys or “The Patio Pounder” – a bottle of champagne that comes with orange juice.
