  13. Dianna Westley-Phillips

    Hi, I’ll be staying at the Caesar Palace Resort & Casino May 9 – 13 and was wondering if there’s a breakfast package we could purchase since it was not available when we booked our trip. If not will we be able to find a breakfast buffet close be within walking distance.

  14. Kristine McKenzie

    Hi Dianna-
    I do not know of a breakfast package at Caesars, but there are a lot of breakfast options at the hotel. The Bacchanal Buffet offers a breakfast/brunch buffet. There is also a 24-hour cafe called Cafe Americano with breakfast options. For a quick breakfast, there is Pronto by Giada. Finally, there is also a walk-up counter with breakfast pastries and coffee called Brioche by Guy Savoy. These are all located within Caesars Palace. Enjoy your stay!
