Cheap Breakfast on the Las Vegas Strip

With some breakfast buffets charging $12 you can still get a meal at Denny's for a reasonable price. You can actually walk into the Casino Royale afterward and win back your money if you need to.

The Peppermill next door to old Riviera site is always a good value and the Hash House A Go Go at The LINQ offers big portions for decent prices if you don't mind sharing. If you feel like having a boat drink in the early morning hours head to Margaritaville at the Flamingo Hotel and have breakfast there.

If you want the best breakfast in town you either go to Bouchon at Venetian or MOzen Bistro at Mandarin Oriental. Both of those restaurants can get expensive but they are out of this world.

What better way to help digestion than with a brisk walk through a mall? Well, at least that is what my wife believes. The fashion show mall is huge and it offers you a chance to start thinking about what you can buy with your gambling profits. You could consider a meal here as there are plenty of food choices available.

If you want to be outside head to The Park Vegas or the LINQ Entertainment District. Both spots have some space to stretch your legs.
