September is Better Breakfast Month, and what makes breakfast better than adding mimosas? It’s hard to narrow down the best places to go in Vegas with so many options, but Simon and Mon Ami Gabi both keep popping up when I ask people. Of the ones I’ve been to so far, here are a few of my favorite spots:
Saturday and Sunday: 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
$29.99; $5 bottomless mimosas
Border Grill at Mandalay Bay offers the best restaurant trip I’ve ever had in Vegas. Service was beyond superior, food was awesome, and the unlimited mimosas came in various flavors. If you are local and sign up for their VIP club, you receive 15 percent off your bill every time you eat there. The menu items are small plates that you can share with everyone. The chef, Mike Minor, came out to greet us and told us if you follow him on Twitter (@chefmikelv), he creates secret recipes not on the menu to ask for when you go in.
Republic Kitchen & Bar
Saturday and Sunday: 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
$8.99 – $18.99; $15 bottomless mimosas, $12 bottomless Bloody Marys
Republic Kitchen & Bar located off Eastern Avenue and Richmar Avenue offers three different options for its Jazz Brunch. The basic option is pastries and breads of homemade baked goods along with fresh fruit and yogurt. The Pecan Sticky Buns are amazing and a must-try. The second tier includes hot dishes such as omelets and pancakes. The third tier includes their specialties items of Republic Surf and Turf Benedict and Wild Smoked Salmon. The atmosphere is relaxing with a couple performing live jazz music. Once you get done eating you can go upstairs to the loft that offers board games, a pool table, and televisions for all you football fans.
Double Helix – Town Square
Saturday and Sunday: 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
$15 for a three-course meal; $15 bottomless mimosas
Double Helix offers an affordable brunch with three different courses to satisfy but not overstuff. I could only finish through course two, but the last course is a pastry so I got to take it home and enjoy it later. Only available at its Town Square location, the meals vary from sweet to traditional. It offers a la carte options of eggs, home fries and bacon for an additional $5 more. I recommend sitting outside on the patio, weather permitting. It is great spot to people watch and the weekend mornings are pretty chill, making it nice atmosphere to spend time with friends.
