    My husband is not a big breakfast guy, so we have never gone to Mon Ami. This next trip is a girls trip, but it's in December. I'm assuming it's too cold to sit outside. Is it still worth the views from the inside??

    We were at Hexx last December in the early afternoon. The temperature was 13 degrees.

    There were heaters but the wind was blowing menus and napkins off the table.

    The kicker was that the sun went behind the Cosmo so we're sitting in the shadows and it became really cold. Just checked we cased our Groupon at 1:50. That's about when the sun disappeared. Not sure how it would effect MAG.

    We've been there when they had the heaters outside. There's also an inside option that has tables next to the windows facing the strip if you're sensitive to the cold. The cuisine - how odd ;) - is the same regardless of where you're sitting and the cuisine is what makes it worth the visit.

    Agreed....inside, outside, who cares? It's good food in a nice atmosphere at a reasonable price in a great location.

    My wife and I had breakfast at MAG one cold December morning. They had the heaters out and it was a nice pleasant experience out on the patio.

    It was a beautiful day and the sky was cloudless blue. It was the clearest blue I have seen in a long, long, time. Days and days of rat-race work schedules and stress prior to the trip made me appreciate this simple sight. We looked across at the still waters of the Bellagio lake and pretended the fountain show was in full swing. There are no shows in the morning but that didn't stop us from seeing it in our minds. We "oohed" and "ahhed" and commented how breathtaking the show was.

    Our dining neighbors thought we were nuts.

    I looked up again in the clear blue sky and saw a single military jet fighter plane doing a vapor trail as it zoomed across the sky. The vapor trail said "Viva Las Vegas!!".

    In my mind anyway.

    As long as there is very little wind and you dress warm, it's fine.

    You MUST MUST MUST go to Mon Ami... hands down the best breakfast I've ever had in my life! (And my hubby and I are foodies). I joke w/ my husband I only go back to Vegas w/ him bc of Mon Ami... get the blueberry French toast... you won't be disappointed.

    We always go, and we are usually there in the winter. My husband always took me to Vegas for our anniversary, I lost him 2 years ago, but my daughters are taking me for our 50th anniversary next weekend, 11/12/16. We always had breakfast at Mon Ami Gabi. He loved the coffee; I loved the Bloody Marys. My daughters and I will toast him with both!! Love you, Babe!!
    We have breakfast reservations on Monday, 11/14/16.
