Places for Kitschy Wedding Brunch in Las Vegas

I will be having an intimate wedding ceremony in June on the Paris Las Vegas Eiffel Tower. Following the ceremony which begins at 9:30 a.m., I would like to take my guests (only 14 of us) out for a FUN, FESTIVE, EDGY, KITSCHY, Las Vegas brunch. Fun and festive being the key words. I'd also like to be able to have cocktails and bring in a wedding cake.

Any ideas?

  1. How much are you looking to spend? Do you want to stay on the Strip or are off the Strip restaurants ok? Also, what day of the week is your wedding?

      Hi Eric, We are to marry on Monday. That puts a crimp in the plan for some places. We really aren't tied to the strip; I'd like find something in the older section of town for kitschy ambiance (maybe)? But either is fine. As far as budget goes ... we don't want to break the bank but we're not tied to a dollar amount either. So ... we're pretty open all the way around. We're looking for carefree and fun and memorable. Any suggestions will be helpful!

        The only place that I can think of that has a brunch during the week is the Wicked Spoon buffet at the Cosmopolitan. There really isn't one older section of town. The older sections of the Valley tend not to be the best sections of the Valley. I can't think of any restaurants that serve brunch in these areas. Perhaps somebody else can think of one.

    2. On a Sunday, i would have recommended Kerry Simon's place at the Palms, which is a very fun and somewhat edge (althougn not very kitschy) brunch. On a Monday, as you've already discovered, not quite as easy. However, if you want to step outside the box a bit, here are a couple of thoughts: in downtown, there is a great new breakfast/lunch eatery called "Eat". The food is great. It might be possible to arrange an area that is devoted to your group and I can't imagine bringing in a cake would be a problem.

      ANother on -strip choice would be the Peppermill. The Peppermill is a twenty four hour a day coffee shop and is kitschy in the extreme. It has enormous fruit salads, omelettes, etc. It is not a 'brunch' per se, but it definitely is a Vegas classic.

      Another option that would allow your guests to walk from the ceremony to breakfast would be Serendipity, right across the street at Caesers. They do a nice breakfast and they have quite a lot of outdoor space. I would think you might be able to reserve part of a patio for your group and that might be kind of pleasant on a sunny June morning. I will not say that this is a particularly traditional Vegas place (having only been there a couple of years) but Ceasers certainly is a classic.

        The first two places that came to my mind were The Peppermill and Serendipity. I would definitely vote for The Peppermill. It has everything ridingruby asked for except for edginess. If you make a reservation, they can mold a nice area in the back, where there are some huge banquettes (once, I came with a party of 12 an they lined up us with a series of two- and four-tops. It's got the classic old-Vegas feel, it has cocktail service 24 hours a day, pretty good food with the entire menu available (breakfast, lunch, or dinner, for that matter). I've had good luck with the service at Peppermill, too.

        As much as I like EAT, I don't think it's the right place for this. I feel pressure to get out quickly when there are people waiting to get a table, and although it's fun, and the food is better, I wouldn't call it festive or edgy.

        I haven't been to the Serendipity in Las Vegas. I'd guess the best feature of it would be the fun/kitschy/festive aspect, and that they are used to dealing with large group celebrations. I'm not at all impressed with the food quality at the NY branch, nor the service, particularly the FOH, but these issues might not exist in LV.

          I've been to Serendipity 3 in Vegas. My best recommendation is to grab a frozen hot chocolate from the take-out window, and mosey along.

          You want kitschy, Peppermill is *definitely* the answer. The enormous fruit salad Dave mentioned is the Fresh Fruit on the dinner menu. It looks like they bring out Carmen Miranda's hat. I've split it three ways for breakfast and haven't come close to finishing it.

        1. You want old school Kitsch? Dine at Tiffany's cafe.

            It's an old-school drugstore lunch counter that has since had the surrounding drugstore close... Does the counter even have 14 seats?

            1. re: JK Grence the Cosmic Jester

              They also have booths, and the new grocery store next door is supposed to be opening soon. They had all of the cases installed last time I was in there.

              I'll bet they have close to 14 stools at the counter.

          2. EAT is great .. not sure they will accomodate that many but it's worth a call.
