Caesars Cafe Lago Buffet Conversion Plans Leaked

Caesars Cafe Lago

In January, Caesars Palace shut down their Cafe Lago Buffet for renovations as part of their larger plan to completely transform their dining offerings. The Caesars Borg hasn't had a helluva lot to say about the project, but thanks to tip from VT reader Funkhouser and an FTP server left open by a local contractor, we've managed to get a hold of the secret plans.

Caesars Cafe Lago

The new Cafe Lago Buffet is being designed by Japanese firm Super Potato, primarily known to trippers for their design work for StripSteak at Mandalay Bay. And just like Strip Steak, the new Cafe Lago Buffet will feature stacked wood block walls, patchwork partitions, glass walls with randomized frosting, etched steel walls, granite countertops, shiny chrome trim and exposed filament lighting. An array of seating options will also be available from banquettes to benches, couples to party of twelves.

Yeah, so what. Who (besides me) comes to buffet to look at the decor? We come to strap on the feed bag. The Borg has promised that Cafe Lago will offer the widest array of dining options for any buffet in Las Vegas. The plans tell us that offerings will include stations for seafood, American, Barbeque(!!), Mexican, Italian, Salad Bar, Soup and Noodles station, a Sushi Bar and a wide selection of Asian specialties.

Mmmmm Barbecue... is there any feed bag that offers guests some luscious meat-falling-off-the-bone ribs? I'm getting hungry just thinking about it. Mmmmmm. Riiiiiibs. Sounds to me like the new Cafe Lago Buffet could be totally rewarding.

I think Super Potato also did Sensi at Bellagio.

Am I the only one not seeing a picture?


Best video poker, best blackjack, best value in Vegas and now they'll have the best buffet! They are unstoppable!


The space was originally a coffee shop for a much smaller Caesars and Cafe Lago suffered as a result. I wonder if there is enough room for them to create a bigger buffet to handle guests from the surrounding properties. While this may be a necessary renovation, I'm not convinced they shouldn't look to a different (larger) area for a new buffet.

Any place that sells barbeque is a place i am willing to go to.

From what I read the total seating capacity of the new buffet is 590 seats. Contrast that to the Wynn LV which seats 500. Also based on the project schedule it looks like opening will be around July 2012.

At least Caesers will have a full out all you can eat option, which it has not had since it closed the Emperor's Buffet several years ago, which had excellent options; it was also the first Vegas Buffet I sampled on my first visit in 2002...

The design looks interesting, there is a part of me that wishes that they'd change the name too though. It just seems so blah.
