Grand Lux Café

Venetian (last visit: July 2009).
Coffee shop.

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!
