Chef Natalie Young’s DTLV eatery “eat.” has had hipsters and Las Vegans raving over her home-made breakfast fare since its opening in 2012. Eat serves up American comfort food and they do it well. The pancakes ($9) can arguably be considered some of the best in the city. The edges are cooked to a crispy golden-brown and served with tiny jars of maple syrup and chicken apple sausage.  If you like chicken-fried steak ($14), you will fall in love with Natalie’s. Another sought-after dish is the Huevos Motuleños ($12) with two eggs over-easy, with red & green New-Mexican chili, black beans, peas, feta, sauteed bananas, and corn tortillas. This dish makes it’s cousin, the tradition Huevos Ranchero look like the runt of the litter. It’s killer. 707 Carson (at 7th) Las Vegas, NV 89101 702.534.1515

Rise & Shine: A Steak & Egg Place


When you want a steak for breakfast, Rise & Shine will satisfy your every need. Their specialties if you couldn’t have guessed it by their name, are steaks and eggs.  But, fear not, non-steak eaters….They also serve up out-of-this world omelets, pancakes, french toast ( some of the best you’ll ever eat ), and a chicken and waffle dish ($12.95) that will leave you thinking how can fried chicken and waffles with syrup be so good? If you want a stellar breakfast sandwich, then Rise & Shine has your back. Their famous “Two-Fisted Bagel & Egg Sandwiches” have become quite the local favorite and come with a variety of fillings. Definitely go with the “3 Little Pigs” ($11.25) with bacon, ham, banger, egg, and American cheese. It’s the real deal. Oh, one more thing, if you order a steak and egg breakfast, definitely get the “pot of bread” with it. Just do it. 10690 Southern Highlands Parkway Las Vegas, NV 89141 702.202.4646

Crepes have been popular around the globe for years, especially in Europe and Japan. They’ve usually been topped and filled with sweet, dessert ingredients, but it’s not unusual for savory ingredients to be added. Crepe Expectations serves up both sweet and savory crepes and I’ll go ahead and say it…they are probably the best in town. They offer 5 different breakfast crepes including the local favorites: “The Rosarito” ($7.50) with scrambled eggs, guacamole, jack cheese and loose, house-made chorizo and the “The Grand Turk” ($7.50) with sauteed turkey, tomato, guacamole, jack cheese, and black olives. It’s the bomb. Husband and wife duo Lou and Jennifer Remmilard are at the restaurant every day cooking and manning the register. If you can’t decide on a crepe, ask Lou at the register to whip you up something special and he’ll make sure you are taken care of, I promise. Crepe Expectations is one of the most unique eateries in town and the moment you try one of their un-real crepe creations, you’ll know why. 9500 S Eastern Ave. Las Vegas, NV 89123 702.583.4939

Welcome to Pancake Heaven!! Actually, everything BabyStacks serves up is pretty amazing. This local joint serves up classic breakfast dishes with Filipino and Island twists. if you haven’t tried their city-wide famous Red Velvet pancakes ($8.95 for a full stack), you’ve been seriously depriving yourself of some insane yumminess.  These beauties are topped with fresh whipped cream, chocolate crumbles and served with cream cheese syrup. I’m pretty sure they also contain crack, because they are that addicting. Other standout dishes include “Rick’s Adobo Fried Rice” ($9.25) with marinated shredded chicken and rice wrapped up in omelette-style eggs with green onions and the “Kalua Pig Benedict” ($9.75) with a toasted english muffin, shredded cabbage, smoke flavored pork and it’s topped with two medium poached eggs and Hollandaise. It’s a pretty wild and satisfying dish. Trust me when I tell you this spot is the truth. 4135 S Buffalo Drive 101 Las Vegas, NV 89147 702.207.6432
