    Hi all, what are some of your favorite places off-strip but close to it for late night eats? Also how about favorite breakfast place off-strip?

    Has House a Go Go. But I am also a big fan of the Orleans coffee shop and the Gold Coast as well. Is downtown a consideration????

    Coronado Cafe at South Point. I go there after clubs to rehydrate with massive amounts of iced tea, but for some reason I always end up eating.

    I know it is a chain but I love Black Bear Diner for breakfast. It did not hurt that an Elivs impersonator was having breakfast in the booth next to us. Not in full-gear but he did have on the glasses. Waitress knew him by first name, no, not Big E.

    thanks for all the suggestions, this site is great! those prices at south point look incredible but the food pics of blueberry hill look even better and its 24 hours right near the strip. i forgot that hash house a go go at the quad was 24 hours now too!

    Jamms.

    We had such a good breakfast there. It was one of the highlights of our February trip. At the same time - we were in the neighborhood doing other things and we had a rental car. I doubt I would drive that far out just for eggs or pancakes. No matter how good they are. :peace:

    (I have eaten at Blueberry Hill and Eggs & I and those were both fine - but Jamms was better for the meals that I had on those days. That same Feb trip we ate at HHAGG at Imperial Palace/Quad and were not at all impressed with the food)

    Do Orleans and Gold Coast still have true coffee shops? I thought all Boyd's/Coast places outsourced to TGI Friday.

    Black Bear is a staple across many parts of the far west. I guess it's a chain by virtue of number of outlets, but then again Michael Mina has a bunch of steak and fish joints so is he a hawker of chainery? Black Bear has fueled up many a road trip for us yet ironically we've never been to the one in Vegas.

    What makes a "chain" to me (vs an empire?:evillaugh) is whether or not the menu is the same or mostly the same at each place, presuming standardized recipes.

    Then Mina is a chainmaster. Puck, too. Flay.

    But rather than take this even more afield on the OP, I'll start that thread I've been meaning to start.

    Late night food fix is ping pang pong @ Gold Coast, great Chinese food to sit in or to go, open till 3 am, always busy, but not had to wait any more than 15-20 mins for food, it is all cooked fresh though.

    Ellis Island is my go to place for late night or for breakfast. I've never had a bad meal or had bad service there. And it's just the distance of a couple blocks off the Strip.

    when I visited a couple weeks back I had a car this trip so I tried the breakfast special at silver sevens (terrible`s) and enjoyed it so went back a second time.

    $2.99 for 2 eggs bacon and pancakes or for a buck more you can have hashbrowns and toast instead of pancakes. the hashbrowns were really tasty also.

    The GC does not have a café/coffee house and didn't see one while at the Orleans.

    Orleans does have a coffee shop and it is excellent. They have some great early morning specials Monday thru Friday. I have never had a bad meal at the Courtyard Café.
