5 Best Breakfast and Brunch Buffets In Las Vegas

Published On:

No trip to Vegas is complete without experiencing at least one all-you-can-eat feast at a Las Vegas buffet! Sure, you could go for dinner, but be prepared to pay extra to dine later in the day.

We personally love buffet-ing during the breakfast / brunch hours. It’s cheaper than the dinner buffets, you get the best of both worlds in terms of menu items (breakfast foods and lunch foods), and have longer to digest your meal so you can get on with your night of fun without being in a total food coma!

In fact, out of the dozens of times we’ve eaten buffets in Las Vegas, I think we’ve only eaten a dinner buffet on the Strip twice. The rest were for breakfast/brunch (or dinner at an AYCE sushi restaurant).

Needless to say, we’ve been around the block when it comes to daytime buffets! Here are our top recommendations for breakfast and brunch buffets to try in Las Vegas.

We’ve curated this list based on all the factors that matter to you: price, quality of the food, assortment of options, and the overall value you get.

And no, we won’t be recommending the overpriced Bacchanal Buffet — there are so many more affordable brunch buffets in Las Vegas out there to explore!

Key Takeaways

For the most luxurious brunch buffet… go to The Buffet at Wynn Las Vegas or Wicked Spoon

For the most bang for your buck… go with the brunch buffet AYCE Buffet at Palmsbottomless mimosas are included in the buffet price!

For the most budget-friendly breakfast buffet… go with Grand Lux Cafe they offer breakfast foods only.

Dining with kids? Kids eat FREE at The Buffet at The Bellagio (5 or younger) and Wicked Spoon (4 or younger).

The Buffet at Wynn Las Vegas

The Buffet at Wynn

Brunch buffet daily 8am – 1pm, $54.99 for adults, children ages 3 to 9 are half price.

The Daily Gourmet Brunch at Wynn’s buffet is exactly what it sounds like. Gourmet… just like everything the Wynn does!

You’ll find more than 90 dishes including a wide range of made-to-order choices, 15 different food kitchens, and a delectable patisserie-full of treats. It’s practically a Vegas dinner buffet just at cheaper brunch prices.

The brunch buffet has made-to-order omelettes and pancakes to savory options like bacon-stuffed tater tots, brisket, and pork belly. You’ll also find specialties like lobster eggs benedict and Grand Marnier pancakes, as well as a wide selection of meats, seafood, and international cuisines if lunch is more your vibe.

The dessert bar is a highlight, featuring a tempting selection of cakes, pastries, and freshly made crepes. Once you’re 90% full, I’d highly recommend heading on over to crepe station. A fresh crepe always beats pre-made desserts in my opinion!

You can also opt for the bottomless mimosas package to complement your meal.

Keep in mind that prices can vary depending on the day, with holiday rates being much higher than normal. Don’t be surprised to see the brunch price jump to $60 to $75 on some weekends and holidays!

Considering going here for dinner? I’d recommend you go here for brunch instead if you’re on a budget and you don’t care too much for snow crab legs (which are available for dinner).

PRO TIP: To avoid long wait times, you’ll definitely want to make a reservation and pay in advance, especially if you plan to dine during peak hours.

AYCE Buffet at Palms

AYCE Buffet at Palms

Brunch buffet daily 9am – 4pm, $32.99 for adults, $19.99 for children 3-11

AYCE Buffet is hard to beat when it comes to the price-to-value ratio. For under $35 per person, you get to enjoy a smorgasbord of both breakfast and lunch foods.

The AYCE Buffet at Palms offers an impressive selection of classic breakfast items like pancakes, waffles, and eggs to more indulgent choices like crab legs, shrimp cocktails, prime rib, and sirloin steak.

The buffet also features an extensive salad bar, soups, and a carving station with ham, brisket, and roasts. Don’t forget to save room for dessert, as they offer a variety of delicious options including sorbets and ice cream.

And if all that food wasn’t enough of a reason to try this buffet out for yourself, I’ll let you in on a couple more game-changing reasons as to why we think AYCE Buffet comes out on top as a breakfast/brunch buffet spot: the weekend brunch price includes bottomless mimosas! At other hotels, the bottomless mimosa packages cost extra!

Plus, with free parking and a relaxed atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle of the Strip, AYCE Buffet at Palms is a great value and a must-visit for food lovers in Vegas.

In fact, Palms’ A.Y.C.E Buffet was ranked fifth place for the Best Casino Restaurant in the United States by USA Today. That has to count for something!

Wicked Spoon at The Cosmopolitan

All Day Brunch Wicked Spoon

All-Day Brunch 8am – 3pm, starting at $47 adults, $23.50 children age 5-10, and children 4 or younger eat free.

Wicked Spoon at The Cosmopolitan is a brunch-only buffet, which makes it a super popular buffet option because you can only enjoy it during the daytime hours. You’ll certainly find a million things to eat at this all-day brunch buffet!

Unlike traditional buffets, dishes are individually portioned and elegantly plated, resembling those found in high-end restaurants.

The buffet boasts a remarkable variety of cuisines, ranging from classic American comfort foods to exotic international delights. Standout stations include the Asian station, offering made-to-order sushi and dim sum, and the carving station featuring impeccably cooked meats.

Oh, and did we mention there are crab legs? Late morning to noon is my favorite time to go because there will be crab legs! While they’re not the best crab legs out there by any means, it does the job.

In addition to the main lunch-type foods, you can enjoy a breakfast area featuring favorites like biscuits and gravy, buttermilk pancakes, cinnamon walnut bread French toast, and traditional eggs Benedict. The buffet also includes a pasta area with standout dishes like shrimp and grits, along with pizza and salmon options.

The dessert section is a definite highlight, showcasing sweets that are both delicious and pretty to look at. You can choose from things like molten lava cake, guava cake, chocolate ganache tart, tiramisu, cheesecake, coconut macarons, bread pudding, panna cotta, etc.

For just about $50 per person for breakfast/brunch, what you get for the price is incredible!

The Buffet at The Bellagio

The Buffet at Bellagio

Brunch buffet is 8am – 3pm, $54.99 for adults, children 5 years of age and under eat free, children 6-11 years of age eat for 50% off.

What we love about the brunch buffet at Bellagio is that it’s equal parts breakfast and lunch. If you’re more of a breakfast person, you can indulge in typical brunch fare like eggs, bacon, pancakes, oatmeal, waffles, sausage, and all sorts of potatoes.

But if you’re feeling more lunch-y, you’ve got a lot to look forward to as well. There’s a customizable omelette station, a carving station, and to our surprise, an array of raw and cooked seafood options. There’s unlimited poke that you can serve yourself, as well as a dedicated made-to-order poke bowl station.

The buffet also features things like raw oysters, oysters Rockefeller, shrimp cocktail, braised short rib, bone marrow, a full salad bar with vegetarian options, fresh fruit, and a delectable dessert section with made-to-order crepes!

In our opinion, the stars of the show here are the seabass, the short rib, the massive dessert station, the crepes, and the freshly pressed juices.

There’s also a self-serve drink station offering various sodas, juices, and other beverages. They also offer an all-you-can-drink alcohol package for an additional fee.

Keep in mind that reservations are not accepted, so it’s best to visit during off-peak hours or be prepared for a wait of about 30 minutes to an hour, especially during busy times.

Grand Lux Cafe at The Venetian

Breakfast Buffet at Grand Lux Cafe

Buffet is for breakfast only, $27.95 for adults

If simple breakfast foods are your thing, you’ll love what’s on offer at The Venetian and Palazzo’s Grand Lux Cafe. In a nutshell, Grand Lux Cafe offers a great morning ambiance and an unbeatable breakfast buffet price for being on the Las Vegas Strip.

Their menu consists of everything that you’d want from a typical breakfast, except it’s all-you-can-eat!

At the breakfast buffet, you’ll find all the typical options to start your day off right including made-to-order omelets filled with your favorite ingredients, alongside crispy hash browns and perfectly cooked waffles. The buffet also features classic breakfast staples like eggs, bacon, sausage, and ham, as well as an assortment of breads, bagels, and pastries.

For those looking for healthier options, there’s fresh fruit, yogurt, and oatmeal with all the fixings. And don’t forget about the bottomless coffee option to keep you caffeinated throughout your meal (though unfortunately, the cost of coffee is a separate cost from the buffet price).

While it’s not the most extravagant buffet on the Strip, it is budget-friendly and unbeatable when it comes to price. All in all, we’d recommend this breakfast buffet to people who just like the simple breakfast items and don’t want the lunch-style dishes.

They also allow you to order off the menu if don’t want a buffet.

Hey, why is Bacchanal not on this list?

Good question. At this point, we think Bacchanal (at Caesars Palace) is a bit too overpriced for us to recommend it to you. Their brunch buffet starts at $64.99 for adults, which is $10 more than our favorite brunch buffet, The Buffet at Wynn.

Mind you, that’s just the starting price — it gets more expensive if you opt for the crab brunch on weekends and holidays (starting at $79.99 for adults).

You can easily have a more satisfying meal at one of these other buffets without burning the same hole in your wallet as you would if you dined at Bacchanal. Sorry, not sorry!
