    I am sorry but I usually stay at the Cal and the Market Street café has the weakest coffee served on the planet. MSS buffet also serves a pretty crappy brew. I have to walk to Plaza and either get a McD's coffee or the Java café or go to Starbucks at Golden Nugget or go to McD's at the D to get my coffee fix. Where do you go for a good cup of coffee downtown?

    This week I discovered that MSS has a cart that serves a pretty good coffee from 6am-10am. Cart is near B Connected/host stand. $3.00 vs a fricken $4.00+ at Starbucks at Golden Nugget.

    The D has a kiosk near registration desk open during the morning hours - good and inexpensive coffee and espresso. Since The Beat Coffeehouse closed down The D is my go-to for morning caffeine fix. Cafelatte at the Plaza also is pretty good. I always avoid the overpriced burnt beans at Starbucks....

    I'm content with the coffee at Boar's Head Bar, but it's probably similar to what they serve at the MSS buffet.

    my morning routine is to roam the casino floor while drinking my first cup of coffee. Don't usually play until a cup or two to wake up.

    Try Lappert's on the bridge connecting The Cal and MSS for your morning coffee. And, it comes with a free doughnut!

    The best cup of coffee I've ever had (besides Kona coffee in Hawaii) was 2 weeks ago @ MTO Café which is on same side of street as Plaza but about 2/10ths of a mile up Main Street.
    Wish I could remember the name of the coffee, I believe he said it was an Italian coffee.
    It was also one of the best breakfasts I've ever had in Vegas. It's worth the walk for sure. http://mtocafe.com/

    I tried the coffee @ Lapperts last summer, and was disappointed I thought it would be good with Lapperts being from Hawaii, I ended up not drinking it and going to get that $5 Starbucks coffee.

    I go to SBUX at the GN. I would like to try the new place at the D, but they close before I wake up! Dunkin is a good option as well. I tried the "chai-me" at Lappert's. it was lame.

    I like Lappert's, largely because I love hazelnut coffee, and they have it. The free donut doesn't hurt, except that at my age, I gain 2 pounds spelling the word "donut"

    Question for the brew-your-own coffee people? Which kind of coffee maker do you bring (ie, Keurig, percolator, drip maker, etc.)? I have a drip maker but the pot is glass so no dice. I see some drip maker pots made of stainless steel so that would work. Or I might consider buying a percolator for the sole purpose of taking it for travelling. I'm guessing the coffee maker has to be small enough to fit in a suitcase, and durable enough to withstand the rigors of the baggage handlers. Any recommendations?

    I haven't used one but I hear good things about the Aeropress - and I mention it because it is very compact and perfect for one cup. My grinders instructions mention aeropress grounds are done a slightly finer setting than a regular drip but I assume it wont make a huge difference when going for a quick cup on vacation. Dont quote me on it though as I havent used one!

    Many years ago, we bought a coffee maker that brews directly into two stainless steel coffee mugs. Although somewhat bulky, I packed it for several years in a row to use in Las Vegas, as well as on a few other trips where coffee was not provided in the room. Nowadays, the Golden Nugget where we stay has small K-cup coffee makers in the room. I bring my own K-cups so as not to pay $10 for theirs and get some cream at Walgreens or the ABC store. That has worked well. You could always pick up a similar 1 cup K-cup coffee maker online to travel with.
