Terrace Pointe is an underrated breakfast/brunch spot that probably receives low marks due to a somewhat high price point (compared to off-strip breakfast spots) and location in the Wynn which does nothing but raise expectations. But my visit with a friend a while back showed was filled with some good and great eats. The best of what I sampled was a brioche French toast retaining much of its batter to give it a cake-like texture and coated with Cap’n Crunch cereal to provide a crispy exterior. Topped off with a banana that was perfectly caramelized and bits of toffee and buttered pecans to counterbalance the soft bread, it all combined to make an excellent rendition of this breakfast staple.

The red velvet pancakes were another hit. Between each layer of the short stack of rich, cakey, and dense pancakes were layers of a vanilla cream glaze that make this the ultimate treat for anyone with a sweet tooth. If you want something more savory, try the Maine lobster benedict. I appreciated the light application of hollandaise — just enough, with the perfect egg to butter ratio making it creamy and velvety. Bits of bacon dotted the interior of the light, crispy waffle and was topped with small chunks of lobster firm in texture. Another waffle dish — the crispy fried chicken and waffles — had similar crispy edged waffles and chicken with a crispy and crunchy exterior, if somewhat bland. It may not have been the best dish of the morning, but was good enough to satisfy.

You may be paying a premium because of the location, but the quality far exceeded my expectations. Wait times can be long during peak hours so its best to come before or after the rush. They also have patio seating overlooking their pool.
