A Springtime Bellagio Brunch Buffet

Two weeks ago my girlfriend Jen came out to visit while her sister was in town for a conference.  Since we were busy working for most of her visit, we decided to get together for brunch the Saturday before she left.  I don’t do it often enough, but I’d say brunch is pretty much my favorite meal – you can eat any type of food and as long as it’s late morning/early afternoon, it’s brunch! When deciding where to go, my first thought was the Bellagio Brunch Buffet because the Husband and I have both registered it in our minds as our favorite (though we hadn’t been since we first started dating 4 1/2 years ago).  Luckily, we decided to meet up at 11:00am when the line was a little bit of a wait instead of a very long wait like the picture below (taken when we came out of brunch)!  The line is about 3x as long as the picture through the casino and then 3x as long into the actual restaurant.  Lesson learned = go early like we did!

I took some quick photos of the décor before heading to the buffet…

(Oddly enough, I had very little of what I photographed on the buffet)

My first plate included mashed potatoes (so good!), asparagus (love), pizza, and eggs benedict (which is my favorite breakfast item… though I prefer spinach or smoked salmon over ham).  Unfortunately, the english muffin was way too chewy.  Best thing on this plate was the mashed potatoes!

Here’s the Husband’s first plate – mostly breakfast foods to start for him.

I went with my fruits and veggies on the second plate… hazelnut french toast which went too fast (before I remembered the camera).  Cantaloupe and strawberries with mixed greens topped with zucchini and squash.  Nice and refreshing!

Last but not least – over to the desserts.  The bottom left was a key lime tart which I loved.  The other two dishes weren’t labeled but the top one was a fruity cake and the bottom right was a semi-chocolate tart.

About halfway through our brunch, the sushi bar opened up but the selection included only California rolls and Veggie rolls, which were fine.  There were lots of Asian salads though, including my beloved seaweed salad which was great!

Our waitress was the best buffet waitress I think I’ve ever had.  She was around any time we needed her and we rarely had to ask for anything.  I was very impressed with the service and enjoyed the quality of the food.

After brunch, we had to check out this season’s Bellagio Gardens and Conservatory.  They change quarterly and I’m pretty sure I’ve seen every display since we moved here.  Currently, the theme was filled with Spring flowers and butterflies.  I’ll leave you with the gorgeous pictures to enjoy and no more of my boring writing Open-mouthed smile
