Pine Hill, New Jersey

There is nothing like waking up knowing that it is your first morning in Las Vegas. We arrived in Vegas late Friday night and woke up on Saturday at the Stratosphere very hungry. Instead of looking through brochures or driving around, we decided we would just grab some grub at the breakfast buffet.
The Stratosphere’s buffet can be summed up in one word, mediocre. The atmosphere is uninspiring with variations of pink and sea-foam green. The food was nothing out of the ordinary with your basic breakfast foods. There were a lot of doughnuts and pastries and a very small selection of fresh fruit. You had your basic eggs, waffles and sausage. I must admit the bacon was good. It was cooked very crispy, but not to the point of being burnt. The seating configuration was also well thought-out. It was more circular, so no one was ever too far from the food. The food was hot, and it didn’t look or taste scary, but it was not exciting either.
Overall, I would not recommend this breakfast buffet. It was $8.99 (now $9.25) per person, and for an extra dollar, you could take the extra drive to Main Street station, where you could enjoy some really good food. Even the extra drive to Sam’s Town’s Fresh Harvest Café will give you the same quality food (although not buffet-style) for about $3.99. It is a satisfactory place if you are lazy and staying at the Stratosphere, but please do not go out of your way to eat here.
