MGM properties breakfast options
Started by kayday on Friday, 11th January 2013 5:06 pm
Am I missing something, or do the MGM properties come up short on breakfast options? Other than a buffet or cafe, can anybody suggest a really great breakfast place at an MGM resort? I'm thinking along the lines of Bouchon at the Venetian or Tableau at Wynn. Thanks!

You could make a convincing case this doesn't count, but MGM has supposedly the best breakfast in town at the Mansion. Of course, you have to be staying at the Skylofts or the Mansion to access it (I've never eaten there myself despite having stayed at the Skylofts once).
Its a good point - at every higher end MGM property they should have one fine dining restaurant open for everyday breakfast/brunch. Since people are on vacation brunch is a good mealtime, and it would definitely drive a little bit of extra spend at the resort. Strange MGM doesn't do it.

Verandah at Four Seasons
Cafe Bellagio is great
Il Fornaio at NYNY
Mansion at MGM Grand
Other than cafes and buffets thats all I can think of

It's not classy, but the waffles are pretty great at Pyramid Cafe, which is basically a breakfast only place anymore.
Other than that, MOzen.

Bellagio cafe has the best coffee in Vegas imo along with some pretty good ommelettes adn waffles. Also you can skip the long lines and generally find an open spot at their counter.

You've got to go to MOzen.

I'd politely disagree - I intensely disliked MOzen, which to me did fancy presentation but failed miserably on the flavor front (circa 12 months ago). Furthermore, I don't think you can roomcharge it to non-MO MGM properties and hence get it comped, which is the only reason to care if the restaurant is at an MGM property.
One strange plug though - try the breakfast sandwiches at JP Patisserie at Aria. Its not a fancy sit-down breakfast but its truly delicious

Thanks for the feedback - these are places I wasn't aware of but will want to check out.
The question came from the fact that I usually stay at Mirage, but never feel like there's much there for breakfast. I'm not really a buffet guy, and Carnegie Deli breakfasts are just OK in my opinion. So then I started to think about the other MGM properties, and thought I saw a trend.
