    Big thing about me: I have zero patience for waiting in line. I would rather forego something than be stuck in a holding pattern waiting for it.

    I want to check out Mon Ami Gabi for breakfast this week. Does it get really busy? I can be up fairly early to beat the crowds.

    On a related note, we'll check out the Eiffel Tower if we don't have to wait. Love to hear any advice on when to go there.

    Thanks!

    We usually get there around 8:00, and we've always gotten right in to an outside table. However, by the time we leave, lots more people are seated inside. If you don't want to take a chance, I'd get there between 7:00 - 7:30.

    At 8.45 we had a 15 minute wait. We have always had immediate seating around 8.0-8.15.

    We eat there every trip, sometimes twice. Breakfast and lunch. Never go as early as others. We have done outside almost everytime. Hate waits,but we want outside - so 10-20 minutes usually. You can play the slots or watch in the close in area but not too far, just so the beeper is in within range of the door.

    Inside seating seems to pretty much available with very little to no wait.

    We have also been able to get a seat at the small bar right at the patio entrance and have a drink while waiting. Works good for 2 people for sure. Many more is another story.

    I've had no wait before 9am every time I've ever went there for breakfast. One thing you can do is make a reservation, even for breakfast - I do it through OpenTable.com but you could probably do the same over the phone.

    Have never had breakfast there, but numerous times for lunch and dinner. My wife and I have actually come to prefer dining inside because there's rarely any wait time, and best of all...no cigarette smoke.

    True, dining outside is somewhat unique, with its (partial) view of the Bellagio Fountains (depending on where you are sitting) and its view of people passing by on the sidewalk.

    But if cigarette smoke bothers you, then you don't want to be sitting outside because virtually everyone out there will be smoking.

    The inside dining rooms are rather elegant, we think.

    we also try to have brekkie there a couple of times and even close to 9 there is very little wait.

    remember you cannot reserve patio seating,inside only.

    We love breakfast there, and have never waited, at all times of the morning. The longest we've had to wait is for them to clear off a table. Love it there!! Food is great, and awesome coffee!!

    The Sugar Factory is also great for breakfast.

    we have had breakfast on the patio many times and lunch a few times also.

    It is usually pretty busy and not that many people smoke out there. we have never been bothered by it.
    we both used to smoke and the smell really bothers us now.

    virtually everyone will be smoking??

    we have had breakfast and lunch many times and it has been very busy most times and we were very surprised at how few people were smoking on the patio.

    If it was that bad we would not eat out there either.
