Three Spots for Breakfast/Brunch in the Venetian

 

A very large and in charge Cinnamon Roll at Yardbird. 


Since hotels in Vegas don't typically serve free breakfast, you're on your own searching for a hot meal to start your day. While my sons and I would be fine with a just a breakfast muffin or cereal bar, my husband likes a warm and savory breakfast when we travel. Las Vegas has a really good selection of breakfast and brunch places, but I knew we wouldn't want to walk a mile or more to eat. So I selected three spots at our hotel, The Venetian, to eat. The Palazzo is connected to The Venetian, so that gave us even more choices. It only took about ten minutes to walk to each place, and both resorts are huge. 


Moon Palace 

For our first morning, we had breakfast at Moon Palace, located near The Palazzo casino. Created by David Chang, this casual quick serve spot has sliders, hot chips, hashbrowns, and what they call "Half Dips". Half Dips are two pancakes with a marshmallow filling that are dipped halfway in dark chocolate. I would recommend trying one, although they were very sweet for breakfast. 

For seating, they have a long counter with stools. We were lucky to grab a seat. We had the yummy breakfast sliders. Mine had egg, cheese, bacon, and their Luna sauce. The sauce tasted a little like honey mustard. It was a little bit tangy. The sliders come two to an order and are served on Hawaiian Rolls. We also had some hot and crispy handheld hash browns. For lunch and dinner they serve beef and spicy chicken sliders, and Prime Rib French dips. 





Illy Cafe 

Another quick option in The Venetian and Palazzo for breakfast is the Illy Cafe. You'll find this spot by the LOVE sign in the Waterfall Atrium. That's a really pretty and perfect destination for selfies I'll show in my Venetian post. Illy Cafe has an espresso bar, crepes, gelato, pastries, and sandwiches. I had a fruit cup, and my husband had an Americana coffee and a Chicken Pesto Crepe. Our boys had milk since they had already had breakfast bars in the room. Our kids get up really early when we travel, so having lots of snacks for when they wake up is essential. This cafe was so cute with lots of neat things on the wall. The gelato looked really yummy, so that would be a good option for an afternoon treat. 










Yardbird 

On our last morning in Vegas, we had made reservations for brunch at Yardbird at 10 am. Check out at the Venetian is 11, so this gave us just enough time to eat before leaving. Yardbird is a Southern restaurant I had heard good things about. It's located in what they call Restaurant Row in the Venetian. Their brunch menu looked really good, especially their sweet items. 

I ordered the Nutella Beignets and the giant Cinnamon Roll to share with my sons. My husband got a Bloody Mary and an Omelet that came with a salad. The Cinnamon Roll had a salted bourbon caramel on it and was topped with a cream cheese frosting. It was so massive I ended up taking it home on the plane. The next day I enjoyed the rest for breakfast. This was one satisfying and messy cinnamon roll. I had no regrets. We also enjoyed the Beignets. The warm Nutella inside was so delicious and comforting. The Beignets were soft and pillowy. Hungry yet?  

They get really busy at Yardbird. Even though we had a reservation, we still had to wait to get seated. Every table was occupied by about 10:30. This is a popular spot for brunch in Vegas.
