This timeless classic combines a coffee shop, romantic lounge and late-night hangout into a piece of living Las Vegas history. Debuting on The Strip the day after Christmas 1972, it’s survived the demolition of many neighbors, and continues to delight locals and tourists.
Food blogger LeAnne Notabartolo says, “I frequently take out-of-towners here because it is seriously old school -- from the fun sugar shakers, servers' uniforms and consistently good service.”
The portions remain huge, with breakfast staples like eggs, omelets, pancakes, waffles and French toast offered with Polish sausage, steak or country fried steak. The 10-page menu also features truly original items, like the French toast ambrosia. But as you wade into it, the countless choices of soups, salads, burgers, sandwiches, entrees and desserts should satisfy everyone with some comfort food the likes of which grandma used to serve.
Walk into the lounge for a very different world. Low lighting, comfortable seating and a flaming water basin call for romance and fun adult times. Specialty drinks include the 64-ounce Scorpion or the award-winning scratch-made Bloody Mary. There’s a Happy Hour from 3 to 6 p.m, and they're open 24 hours on Fridays, Saturday and Sundays (closing at 2:00 a.m. on weeknights).
