I am on a little mini-staycation over the next week or so. We have guests in town that have never been to Las Vegas before so less hotel business and more tourist stuff. Although I am working this weekend (EDC!!) so I am sure I will have some more stories next week.
The other morning found us at The Peppermill. I don’t head out to the strip much but for a new person to Las Vegas, this is a place to experience.
We arrived around 10 am and were seated almost immediately. Breakfast, lunch and dinner is served 24 hours a day. That is a bonus if you don’t feel like breakfast in the morning. We all did though. The waitress was prompt with the coffee and other drinks. We did have cocktail waitresses stop by a couple times and offer us mimosas and Bloody Mary’s (including the kids at the table… yes, they don’t look 15 or 16 but they definitely don’t look 21).
The average breakfast costs around $12-15. That is a bit pricey but the portions are huge and when you consider that it is less than a buffet and a plate of food fills you up it is a good price point.
The seafood omelette was very good but very rich. It was probably about a 6 egg omelette packed with shrimp and scallops and covered with hollandaise sauce. I would find it impossible to finish.
The Mazzeratti omelette had Italian sausage, mushroom and cheese (maybe some other things) and had red sauce on top. Now you would not think that tomato sauce would work but it does. It makes the omelette something other than just bland.
The other two dishes were very similar. Either French toast or a Belgium waffles covered in fresh fruit (strawberries, blueberries, melon), whipped cream and blueberry syrup. A giant overwhelming mass of good stuff. Everything was fresh and tasted great. One was finished, the other one made a grand attempt.
The service continued to be acceptable. Drinks were refilled pretty well and the coffee is pretty good.
Definitely give this place a try. It is classic Vegas diner at its core.
