Las Vegas is home to countless wonderful restaurants serving all kinds of cuisines. But where should you go if you want to satisfy your late morning cravings? To answer that, we huddled up and came up with our list of favorites as well as asked some of our bougie friends for their favorites as well. Here we go – avocado toast time baby!

Ranking the Restaurants


Location: 10940 S. Eastern Ave in Henderson
Brunch hours: Monday – Friday 8 am – 3 pm, Saturday – Sunday 7:30 am – 3 pm

We kick off the list with maybe our favorite off-Strip brunch spot in Vegas – CRAFTkitchen. This spot is a full-service restaurant and bar that is open for happy hour, dinner and ‘after hours’ as well. The menu has a bit of a Spanish flair and is definitely a restaurant that is targeted at foodies.

Serving a tasty menu and bottomless mimosas, there are plenty of sweet or savory options that can be modified to suit dietary restrictions. There are monthly brunch specials, but the top picks on the menu are:

  • Crème Brûlée Stuffed French Toast
  • Chorizo Scramble Skillet
  • Veggie Goat Cheese Frittata
  • Churro-style Waffles

There is a nice selection of vegan options on the brunch menu including two different preparations for your avocado toast!

For mid-market champagne lovers, they have bottles of Veuve Clicquot for $75. And they have a full bar open for brunch as well.

Premier Tip: One of our ‘hungry dude’ friends loves the breakfast burrito

DW Bistro

Location: 9275 W. Russell Rd #190 (The Gramercy) in the Southwest
Brunch hours: Saturday – Sunday 10 am – 3 pm

DW Bistro, with its industrial-like decor, is well-known in the Southwest part of town. Although it has tweaked its weekday lunch, happy hour and dinner offerings/hours throughout the years, its weekend brunch remains a mainstay.

For those of you that have never been to D Dubs, its small and simple menu is New Mexico and Jamaican-inspired so you can find things such as flautas, chilaquiles, a chile red pork bowl and jerk fried chicken and waffles. The pork bowl is definitely on the hearty side and has a nice ‘kick’ to it. The curry is very good as well.

DW Bistro offers brunch-appropriate spritzers for those that need alcohol to kick-start their weekend day. They also offer specialty bloody marys as well. Finally, there is a selection of champagne that is a bit more pricey than other brunch places. Coffee options include french press and cold brew.

Readers that live in the Southwest will notice that we left Toasted Gastrobrunch off of this list. We haven’t loved Toasted, but that is not to say we won’t like it more in the future.

Premier Tip: There may still be construction going on in The Gramercy complex so leave a few minutes early to find parking.

Casa El Desayuno

Locations: 2632 E. Lake Mead Blvd in North Las Vegas and 1741 E. Charleston Blvd not far from the Downtown hotels

Brunch hours: Everyday 7 am – 3 pm (until 4 pm at the Lake Mead location)

What family-friendly brunch spot is not like the others on this list? It’s this one! Casa El Desayuno is a brunch, breakfast and brunch spot that has two locations in Vegas focused on Mexican home cooking.

This is not a place to go to be seen, but the food is more than worth it. Casa’s menu is the polar opposite of DW Bistro’s, and is as long as The Art of War. Menu options include several Mexican breakfast classics, nopales con huevo (cactus mixed with eggs), numerous specialty pancakes, pancake flights, omelets, breakfast burritos, breakfast sandwiches, soups, and tortas and burgers (if you are there at lunch time). On weekends, they offer a birria melt, quesabirria tacos, menudo and caldo (soup).

Casa offers several flavored mimosas, micheladas and beer.

Premier Tip: One of our vegetarian friends highly recommends the vegetarian chilaquiles.

Esther’s Kitchen

Location: 1131 S. Main St in the Arts District

Brunch hours: Saturday – Sunday, 10 am – 3 pm

You can find Esther’s Kitchen in the bustling downtown Arts District. Esther’s has quickly become one of the best restaurants in Las Vegas and has been written up in several publications. Esther’s is an Italian restaurant with a host of delicious options on the brunch menu.

They dedicate an entire section of the brunch menu to toasted bread with an assortment of toppings, including your avocado toast, smoked Ocean trout, tomato & ricotta, or biscuits with maple sausage gravy. Other favorites include egg white frittatas, rigatoni carbonara and the duck+mushroom benedict. The menu also includes a selection of pizzas as well as salads.

Honey Salt

Location: 1031 S Rampart Blvd in Summerlin

Brunch hours: Saturday – Sunday, 10 am – 2:30 pm

The Summerlin community has raved about Elizabeth Blau’s Honey Salt since it opened in 2012. It ranks among the best off-Strip brunches in Las Vegas, thanks to some unique menu items.

Honey Salt’s Fried Chicken Benedict is a menu staple, putting an American twist on a classic brunch. The Banana Foster French Toast and the Poutine Duck Pancake are also must-tries for hearty eaters, while the Grain Power Salad is splendid if you want something healthier. The menu also includes some pizzas, a hearty burger and other great options. They also offer fresh juices made-to-order, as well as the green goddess juice, which they describe as ‘salad in a cup’.

Honey Salt offers bottomless mimosas, bellinis and bloody marys. Honey Salt has several vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options on its brunch menu.

They have patio seating. There is also a large room capable of hosting private events.


Location: 1126 E. Fremont St in Downtown

Brunch hours: Every day, 7 am – 3 pm

PublicUs is a hipster’s dream come true – you might even forget that you are in Vegas and think you were in Portland or Austin for a minute. This ‘canteen-style’ restaurant offers a wide variety of breakfast and brunch options.

Their brunch menu includes:

  • Chimichurri Steak and Eggs
  • Shakshuka (if you have Middle Eastern friends, ask them about this dish, and thank us later if you try it)
  • Breakfast burritos
  • Breakfast sandwiches
  • Waffles
  • Corned Beef Hash
  • And more!

This place has an extensive coffee bar so it’s a great place just to grab a coffee or tea as well if you don’t have as much of an appetite. Some options include a green panda matcha, horchata for our Latin friends, espresso tonic, macadamia nut latte and much much more. PublicUs also offers mimosas including a bottomless option if you have a dd.

Our Downtown friends all highly recommend PublicUs.
