    As a whole the Flamingo buffet is the worse of the CET buffets! Although its hard to ruin breakfast!

    If you stick to the usual stuff, I'm sure it will be fine. It's just breakfast!

    Its ok for sure

    Bacon, hash brown, cooked as you want eggs, yogourt, pastries, fruit are pretty hard to mess up, and for free its even better

    For a quick and simple breakfast, it is fine. Especially when it is free

    I have never had a complaint about the Flamingo buffet. They often have a small crepe station too - not sure if just weekends or every day. Limited choice (such as fruit) but still a nice treat. Fresh fruit, eggs, meats, juice, coffee and a pleasant view.

    No more dinner and no more complimentary champagne.

    Ok if you're there, but nearby, Paris and PH are somewhat better, at least for this week, that is.

    It was always "brunch", not breakfast, and included free mimosas. Are you saying that's no longer the case?

    Gone! You can pay something like $10 extra and get mimosas added, served by the servers.

    Back in the day they actually had a small bar with a live bartender. Although it was officially "Free mimosas and BMs", the bartender would make you anything he could with vodka, champagne, and various mixers, including what came out of the soda gun. Screwdrivers were common.

    I'm not exactly a member of the VMB Buffet Fan Club. But free and breakfast? Partake.

    It's not bad, I had a pretty good experience there. Granted, there were unlimited mimosas thrown in, and that could be why I enjoyed myself! :)

    Flamingo is home base and we do the breakfast buffet at least once every trip. For a free breakfast it will get the job done. They have an omelette station that won't let you down, as well as fresh pancakes and crepe. You definitely won't leave hungry.

    Flamingo is pretty good. Better then PH, and Harrah's buffets. And Flamingo serves "brunch" 7am to 2pm so you'll have more options then just breakfast.

    I use the Flamingo Buffet as a launching pad for a drunken day. Say what you will about the food, but Patty’s drink service is amazing. She really takes care of you.
