Grand Lux Café
Venetian (last visit: July 2009).
This is The Venetian's 24 hour café. It's a fancier version of The Cheesecake Factory, and part of the same chain. At 7:30 am on a weekday, there was a 5 minute wait for a table. The server was friendly and efficient. After ordering, food arrived in 8 minutes. So far, so good. I ordered a short stack of pancakes, not the full stack, as the server warned me that a short stack consisted of three large pancakes. Good advice. The pancakes were light, tangy, with slightly crisp edges. They were served with a good sized chunk of solid butter (not that whipped crap that melts down to nothing), and syrup. Maybe not perfect, but very good. I also ordered sausage - 4 links that were meaty but dry - apparently cooked prior to my order.
I returned to The Grand Lux later in the trip, and again got pancakes. They were just as good the second time. Success!
