Society Cafe Brunch in Las Vegas

Because I was sure to wander around like a lost puppy in a sinner’s paradise upon my arrival to Las Vegas, I was fortunate enough to receive plenty of tips from friends of mine.

For Friday brunch, a friend e-mailed, “Society Café, because CSM will love tweeting about this place—one of the best brunch spots on the strip. The floral arrangements are spectacular, too.”

Upon arrival at Society Café, we discover a restaurant laden with fuchsia, tufted couches, black-and-white damask and stripes, and chandeliers—a color scheme very similar, albeit more ostentatious, to my home décor.

“Oh my god, this looks exactly like your apartment,” surmises Linds.

Tweeting and eating and plenty of pink—I am just so predictable.

We sit down in a pink-tufted booth and I squeal with delight. Our waiter, Charlie, is full of smiles and menu tips. I order a Blood Orange mimosa, why not?

The restaurant brings over salted pretzel rolls served with a Dijon mustard dipping sauce. The rolls were both white pretzels and pumpernickel—both delicious—and the differentiation from a typical bread basket was both noted and appreciated.

The brunch-all-day options include pancakes, omelets and the like. However, what struck our fancy was the three-course lunch bento box for $23.

Lindsey’s Bento box included fruit salad, a market chop salad, and a charred tuna slider. She says, “Society Cafe was absolutely perfect for a girl looking for a light-but-delectable brunch pre-Vegas pool bender. The box lunch was simply an improved American twist on the bento box. After biting into the mini Market Chop Salad, I felt like I was detoxing with the array of fresh veggies including avocado, carrots, celery, tomatoes, and hearts of palm. The charred tuna slider was a little smaller than I would have liked, but the delicious steamed bun that substituted for the standard boring roll made up for it. Finishing with a small bowl of berries, I was perfectly satiated and ready to hit the pool!”

Meanwhile, my plate of pizzazz also included a charred tuna slider. I also ordered a caprese salad made with mini heirloom tomatoes, chopped basil and melt-in-your-mouth mozzarella. It was perfect—I only wish there had been more.

Best of all, cinnamon sugar doughnut holes served warm in a paper bag. Adorable, and delicious. (You know how Bitches and brunchers love doughnuts).

The service at Society Café was splendid. The manager charged my iPhone for me—waiting patiently for me to finish snapping pictures before I reluctantly handed over a technological device that is more like an appendage than object nowadays.

The chef came out to say hello and brought out complimentary dessert—just to be nice. He was Italian, handsome, and made miraculous ice cream sandwiches. (I wonder if he’s married?)

The ice cream sandwiches, like the rest of the brunch, were miniature. House-made ice cream between hard-yet-moist wafer cookies in three flavors: Oreo, chocolate peanut butter, and rum raisin. Lindsey loved the rum raisin while I went wild for the chocolate peanut butter.

An adorable Friday brunch in Las Vegas followed by catching up on my Vogue magazinespoolside—we were happy girls.

The Bitches say: A. Adorable ambiance, spectacular service, splendid cuisine.
