I enjoy conserving my bankroll in Las Vegas by hunting down and eating at restaurants with cheap breakfast on the Strip and on Fremont Street.
After all, what’s worse than starting a day of gambling in the hole after getting stuck with an oversize bill?
To aid value seekers like me, I figured that creating and maintaining a breakdown of cheap breakfast options in Las Vegas would be helpful.
To qualify for the “cheap breakfast” list, a restaurant must have a number of offerings available at a $15 price point or lower. Of course, you’ll want to double-check pricing before making the trip as menus and prices frequently change.
Of course, I’ll be sure to link to each restaurant’s menu so you can easily compare your options.
Note: My rundown of where to find cheap breakfast in Vegas doesn’t include fast food chains. If you’re interested in going that route, check out my summary of fast food restaurants on the Strip.
Cheap Breakfast On The Strip
Pyramid Cafe at Luxor: Home to numerous cheap breakfast options, Pyramid Cafe serves a collection of eggs, waffles, pancakes, and French toast. While only a few items are sub-$15, most items can be had for $20 or less.
I recently stopped into Pyramid Cafe for lunch (and enjoyed it) but saw plenty of hearty breakfast plates walking past me that looked delicious. On my “breakfast to-do list” is the pyramid pancake stack topped with berries and bananas.
Backstage Deli at Luxor: If you’re looking for a quick, cheap breakfast on the Strip, Backstage Deli serves a limited menu that includes breakfast sandwiches, eggs any style, and chicken & waffle sliders at a price point of around $15 or less.
America at New York New York: A bastion of cheap breakfast deals, nearly everything on America’s breakfast menu is $15 or less. Highlights include a collection of omelets, pancakes, French toast, waffles, chicken & waffles, a breakfast burrito, and various egg meals.

Avenue Cafe at Park MGM: While inexpensive breakfast items are a bit tougher to find on Avenue Cafe’s menu, items “Off the griddle” like pancakes, French toast, and a Belgian waffle land right around that $15 price point.
Aria Patisserie: As one of the more upscale resorts on the Strip, deals at Aria can be tough to find. The Patisserie, however, serves a number of inexpensive breakfast items which include a breakfast sandwich, breakfast burrito, ham & swiss croissant, and omelettes.
Uniquely, Aria’s Patisserie also serves a number of both sweet and savory crepes.
Bellagio Patisserie: Like the patisserie at Aria, Bellagio’s is among the most affordable spots to grab a cheap breakfast in a resort that caters to a higher-end clientele. Breakfast items like pastries, croissants, and crepes can be had at a relatively inexpensive price point.
Ocean One at Planet Hollywood: Celebrated as one of the best cheap restaurants on the Strip, Ocean One can be found in the Miracle Mile Shops and is known for its extensive $5.99 lunch menu. Frequently overlooked though is their value-oriented breakfast menu, which offers nearly everything for under $10.
Items on Ocean One’s cheap breakfast menu include omelets, eggs, pancakes, waffles, breakfast sandwiches, and more.
La Salsa Cantina at Planet Hollywood: Like Ocean One, La Salsa Cantina is found in the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood and serves a number of cheap breakfast items with a Mexican twist, many of which for $10 or less.
Among the deepest deals is their $4.79 breakfast that includes 2 eggs, choice of meat, southwest potatoes, and tortillas.
Blondies in the Miracle Mile Shops: Home to one of our favorite all-you-can-drink deals in Las Vegas, Blondies also offers a value-packed breakfast menu with most items priced at or below $15. Unique menu items include a big burrito, breakfast quesadilla, and breakfast tacos.
PBR Rockbar in the Miracle Mile Shops: While the cheapest breakfast item on the menu is a classic breakfast, complete with two eggs, a choice of bacon or sausage, fruit, and toast for under $10, most other items can also be had for under $15.
Nosh Deli at Bally’s: Although the menu is limited to a few breakfast sandwich options, Nosh’s breakfast qualifies as cheap, with each of those sandwiches landing around $15.
Brioche by Guy Savoy at Paris & Caesars Palace: A number of items, including a ham and cheese croissant, quiche, and coffee & pastry breakfasts are offered at a price point of less than $15.
Cafe Belle Madeleine at Paris: A selection of breakfast sandwiches at Cafe Belle can be yours at a sub $15 price point.
JJ’s Boulangerie at Paris: Cheap breakfast items on the menu at JJ’s include a number of breakfast sandwiches, breakfast pizza, and a Belgian waffle.
Eggslut at Cosmopolitan: A popular grab & go breakfast destination at Cosmo, sandwiches start at a price point below $10. Not bad for an upscale resort!
Nook Express at The Linq: The grab & go location serves a selection of breakfast sandwiches for around $11 and bagels with cream cheese for under $10.
Nook Express at Flamingo: Like the location at Linq, Flamingo’s Nook Express specializes in a number of cheap breakfast sandwiches, a yogurt parfait, and even a fresh fruit bowl.
Eatwell at Cromwell: A quick-serve option on the casino floor at Cromwell, Eatwell serves a number of inexpensive breakfast sandwiches.
The Pantry at Mirage: While most menu items at The Pantry land in the $20 range, sugar-dusted pancakes and Belgian raised waffles both cost around $15.
Denny’s: A known quantity for most, Denny’s has locations both at Casino Royale, and just north of MGM Grand in the showcase mall and serves cheap breakfast daily.
Cheap Breakfast on Fremont Street
Binion’s Cafe: Almost everything on the Binion’s cafe breakfast menu qualifies as cheap, with the vast majority costing under $15. Notable options include ham steak and eggs, pancakes, omelets, and Binion’s basic breakfast which is made up of 2 eggs, hash browns, and toast.
Binion’s Deli: While there are only two breakfast items on the menu, they’re both inexpensive. The cheapest breakfast item on the menu is the Gambler Special, which is comprised of two eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns, and toast for a hair over $10.
CJ at Golden Nugget: A number of items hover around the $15 mark on CJ’s menu including French toast, a breakfast burrito, a breakfast sandwich, and a number of omelets.
The Grille at Golden Nugget: Ranking as one of the cheapest breakfast options downtown, The Grille serves a breakfast sandwich, burrito, and more at prices as low as $10.
Second Street Grill at Fremont: Second Street serves an impressive number of cheap breakfast items, most of which at a price point of $15 give or take a few bucks. Notable items include a Denver omelette, ham steak and eggs, and the Fremont breakfast which is comprised of 2 eggs, bacon, sausage, breakfast potatoes, and toast.
Magnolia’s Veranda at 4 Queens: When I’m in downtown Las Vegas, Magnolia’s Veranda is my cheap breakfast go-to. While I typically opt for the NY Steak and Eggs, which costs more than $15, there’s an abundance of sub $15, and even sub $10 meals available.
Aloha Specialties at The Cal: Located steps away from Fremont Street, Aloha Specialties serves a small breakfast menu that includes unique and cheap items. Try their Loco Moco, a hamburger patty over rice with 2 eggs over easy, topped off with gravy.
Market Street Cafe at The Cal: Also at California, nearly everything on Market Street’s breakfast menu lands at or below $15. Cheap breakfast items include island-style eggs, eggs benedict, steak & eggs, and biscuits and gravy among others.
Siegel’s 1941 at El Cortez: While not everything on the menu qualifies as a cheap breakfast, items like 2 eggs any style, fat Irish green corn beef hash, French toast, and buttermilk pancakes all land near or below $15.
Siegel’s is also one of the few restaurants offering all-day breakfast downtown.
Freedom Beat at Downtown Grand: A block away from the Fremont Street canopy, Downtown Grand ranks as one of my favorite places to gamble in Las Vegas. Not only is the casino rarely crowded, but they also commonly deal $5 craps and $1 blackjack.
From a food perspective though, Freedom Beat offers an impressive number of brunch items for around $15 or less that include chicken fried steak, a breakfast sandwich, breakfast burrito, Cali omelet, and a classic frittata among others.
Denny’s in Neonopolis: Like the locations on the Strip, Denny’s can be found in the Neonopolis complex on Fremont Street. Although relatively unexciting, it’s an option for those looking for cheap breakfast in Las Vegas.
Garden Court Buffet at Main Street Station: The only buffet currently open downtown, Garden Court is a rock-solid value option. While the buffet currently costs a hair over $20 for brunch, it’s a great deal for those looking to find a strong calorie-to-dollar spent ratio.
See my review of the Garden Court buffet, here.
Although restaurants with expensive menus and celebrity chef names on the marquee attract all the buzz, there are an impressive number of spots to grab a cheap breakfast in Vegas. Whether you’re looking for a quick grab-and-go option or a budget-friendly sit-down restaurant, there’s sure to be an option that agrees with you.
Hopefully, I was able to help you identify an inexpensive breakfast restaurant that works for you and your group!
I’m a former software salesman turned Vegas aficionado. While the craps table is my preferred habitat, I pull myself away to explore new attractions, shows, restaurants, and outdoor activities around Las Vegas with the intent of sharing my experiences.
Ultimately, I just want to help folks plan a better trip and save a few bucks in the process.
