7.3 Sunday brunch
There are many Sunday brunches in Las Vegas. In fact, almost every hotel with a buffet has one. Price ranges from less than $10 to more than $50. Since most vacations seem to start or end on Sunday, a nice brunch it is a terrific way to begin or end your Las Vegas experience. Some Sunday brunches seem to be little more than a regular buffet with inexpensive champagne added. But some are truly elegant with top-of-the line gourmet food!
We are listing here what we feel are the best Sunday Brunches. Be aware that Vegas is priced by supply and demand. Prices may change during large conventions, holidays and special events.
