Tiffany’s Café is absolutely the best place to eat in all of Las Vegas. Tiffany’s is an iconic lunch counter supplemented with a few tables inside [the now closed] White Cross Drug Store at the conflux of Las Vegas Boulevard, Main Street, and Oakey. The fare is simple, substantial, affordable, and cooked from scratch. You won’t get warmed up canned soup here. The lunch counter serves meals around the clock, 24/7, unlike many casino eateries that close for hours on end during the wee hours. They must be doing something right over there, because Tiffany’s regulars include not just loyal customers, but loyal employees as well. In a transient town known for high employee turnover, Tiffany’s keeps its employees for years. One cook has been there more than ten years. I’ve known waitresses to work at Tiffany’s from 10 to 30 plus years.
There was a brief period of time that we stopped eating there as the quality had fallen off. We’ve returned three times now during current renovations and were very pleased to discover that the food is back up to the standard that we’ve enjoyed for many years.
Don’t let the renovation in the adjoining market during the 2012 summer fool you. The lunch counter remains open.
