    Where's the best place for breakfast downtown? I'm already going to hit up Du-Par’s for their pancakes, but any other suggestions?

    Hash House A Go Go at the Plaza. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Don't make any lunch plans if you eat there though. The serving sizes are huge. The diner upstairs at the D is also pretty good . I like their corned beef hash.

    Cafe Cortez at El Cortez is good too.

    We've been in a rut with having breakfast at the Golden Nugget buffet because it's usually free. I think it's a good breakfast though. Magnolia's at 4Queens is also good.

    I also think that Magnolia's and the Café Cortez are good and inexpensive breakfast options. The Market St Café at the Cal has a decent breakfast, too. When I go back in November, I am going to try Eat LV one morning. One of the drawbacks of having your food comped in the casinos is that it's hard to convince yourself to pay for food someplace else, but I've heard nothing but good things about Eat LV, esp. at breakfast.

    EAT is really good. Yes, it is hard paying with no option of being comped, but it is worth it. Go late morning and make it brunch. Portions are large. It is not diner type food so don't go looking for a greasy spoon. Menu is small and offerings are a bit different but all the food is fresh. Pancakes are better then Dupars!

    As was said, it's tough walking away from a free comp. But we always stay & play at MSS, and are perfectly happy with our free MSS breakfast buffet. The Mon. thru Friday offerings are plentiful and tasty enough, but the Saturday & Sunday morning brunch is even better.

    I absolutely agree, as do a sizable amount of locals... get out of the casino and check out EAT!

    Another vote for EAT at 7th and Carson. I go there whenever I am in town, no matter where I'm staying. The chicken fried steak is amazing (and easily large enough to share). The beignets are also one of my favorites.

    I am positive that Downtown has great Breakfast options. Almost all of the Downtown properties have restaurants and buffets that offer great Breakfast fare. Dupars, Magnolias, HHAGG, EAT LV, are great places to try. Or so I've heard. I'm also guilty of utilizing all the food comps given to us when we visit, resulting in eating breakfast at the same places over and over.

    I made a pact last trip to try different places, even if it means I have to shell out cash to try these places. Vegas has so many different options out there it would be a shame to not go off the beaten path.
