Las Vegas’ Best Brunch Spots – Neighborhood Eateries off The Strip

If any city serves up a decadent brunch, it has to be Las Vegas.  Brunch is the meal where all rules go out the window, and you can have bottomless Bloody Marys or endless Mimosas while eating pancakes, oysters on the half shell or a creative Eggs Benedict.  Here are some of my favorites that are locally owned and off The Strip.


1. Honey Salt

Since 2012 Honey Salt has been serving market inspired cuisine with a fresh farm-to-table style flair.  They commit themselves to using the best quality ingredients from local and regional farmers, fishermen and growers.  My favorite brunch dish is the Honey Salt Benedict and don’t forget the bottomless Mimosas and Bloody Mary bar.  It’s the perfect brunch spot but also serves lunch and dinner.  Brunch is served Sat/Sun 10am-2:30pm.  1031 S. Rampart Blvd in Summerlin.


2. Esther’s Kitchen

Esther’s is a seasonal Italian neighborhood restaurant, set in the Las Vegas Arts District in downtown.  They are inspired by the bounty of the West Coast and traditions of Italy.  Inspired by his Great-Aunt Esther who enabled Chef James Trees to open his first restaurant.  For brunch they serve creative dishes such as the Brunch Pizza, Beef Cheek Hash, and Truffle Polenta.  Brunch is served on Sat/Sun.  1130 S. Casino Center Blvd.


3. Snooze, an A.M. Eatery

Snooze, an A.M. Eatery – its breakfast all day at this Summerlin brunch spot.  From Benedicts to Bloodys to whatever you are feeling at the moment, they are always looking to turn food upside down and on its side.   From Strawberry Shortcake Pancakes to Juan’s Breakfast Tacos, there is something for everyone.  You can enjoy brewed drinks as well as some pretty creative cocktails.  Breakfast all day long Sun-Sat 6:30am – 4pm.  1075 S. Rampart Blvd in Summerlin.


4. Good Morning Kitchen & Cocktail Bar

Good Morning Kitchen & Cocktail Bar is a celebration of all things brunch, with menu items that include a selection of vegan dishes as well as a variety of morning cocktails.  Egg dishes include everything from Country Fried Eggs to a Vegan Crab Benedict.  The sweet stuff would include Bananas Foster French Toast to the Carmel Popcorn Pancake Stack.  Creative cocktails include some yummy versions of classic cocktails such as Early Fashion, Rose Sparkling Sangria and a Bloody Mary Cart.  Open Sun – Sat 9am-3pm.  5587 S Rainbow Blvd in Southwest Las Vegas.


5. DW Bistro

DW Bistro offers a mix of Jamaican and New Mexican cuisine and those influences carry over to brunch.  Diners can indulge in mid-morning dishes that include New Mexico red chile bowls, jerk pork hash and French toast souffle.  Just add a mimosa and chocolate croissant or blueberry scone from the pastry basket.  Open for brunch Sat & Sun 10am-3pm.  9275 W Russell Rd in Gramercy.
