    I am one who rarely has doughnuts, but every year or two I wake up with a strong craving for some kind of sweets and I will run out to our local Dunkin Doughnuts and pick up a few.
    Well this morning it happened but the craving must not have been so strong because I didn't feel like running out
    I will be in Vegas the 30th of Oct. for two weeks, a few nights downtown and the rest at the Flamingo so I thought maybe I'll satisfy that craving then. So can anyone suggest a good one preferably at or around the Flamingo?
    I usually get a few Glazed doughnuts but I think I would prefer a really good eclair this time, also no suggestions for dessert after dinner as that is even more rare maybe every 3 or 4 years and it's not the same as in the morning with a good cup of coffee.

    I think java detour in the food court has some eclairs and donuts the last time I was there...but that was 4 years ago so not sure at this point....can't tell you if they are good or not...might want to check.

    Jean - Phillipe at the Bellagio and Aria have the best pastries IMO, if you don't mind a walk. The walk will help burn it off.

    I admire your restraint to only have a donut once every year or two lol. I'd be a lot smaller if i could do that.
    Can't beat Krispy Kreme glazed donuts(try Excalibur) but if your taste runs more highbrow head over to Paris which has a nice pastry shop or Bellagio, that has a nice one we hit up every trip.

    If you're ever in the Summerlin area, check out Chocolate and Spice. It's a pastry shop run by Chef Megan Romano. She spent a few years as Charlie Palmer's pastry chef (notably at Aureole) here in Vegas and then moved on to start her own venture.

    Everything I've had there was excellent and of a quality I'd expect from Chef Romano.

    Dunkin Donuts at Sam's Town can't be beat.

    Sam's Town ice cream shop Calamity Jane's is a must stop for me as well.

    For Downtown there is a Krispy Kream at The D and a Dunkin at the Fremont.

    Jean Phillipe at Aria is pretty amazing.

    I thought KK at the D was closed. Glad to hear it has re-opened.
