I think I have written about this buffet in almost every Vegas journal I’ve written for IgoUgo, but folks, it’s THAT GOOD. If you don’t eat here, you’re just crazy.Among my friends that have visited Las Vegas, and among those who really want to visit Las Vegas, the Le Village Buffet is possibly one of the most talked-about spots on the Strip. And it’s not just us, it gets voted the best breakfast in Vegas almost every year by almost every entity that makes such a list. You’ll likely want to avoid it on a weekend day, unless standing in line doesn’t bother you. Weekday mornings still find a line, but usually one that moves a little faster and doesn’t wind around the casino. Weekday prices are $13.95 for the buffet – which may seem like a lot, but the days of the cheap-but-good Vegas buffet have gone the way of the dodo.What makes this place so good? I have one word for you, CREPES! But seriously, it’s not just the made-in-front-of-you and the filled-with-whatever-you-ask-for fresh crepes, which you can then pile powdered sugar, chocolate and whipped cream on top of. Okay, it is just that. But in addition, there are plenty of other choices that make it worth your while. There are scrambled eggs with bacon, without bacon, there are different types of hashbrowns and breakfast potatoes, there’s bacon, there are pancakes, there’s French toast and just bread toast. There’s fruit, there are breads, there are chocolate croissants (the French should get an award for that invention) and there’s tasty coffee to wash it down with. I told the crepe chefs while I waited for my crepe filled with strawberry sauce and chocolate how famous they were in my travel circle, and they seemed very pleased with their status. This is hands down, no questions asked, the BEST breakfast you’ll have in Las Vegas. Don’t miss it!
