WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT
...a beautifully designed, multi-layered experience…
...offers one of the few real remaining bargains in Vegas…
If you think the croissants you buy at your supermarket bakery are the real deal think again. If you want to experience a real French croissant you’ll find none finer than those served at Payard Bistro and Patisserie located in Caesar’s Palace.
Almond Croissant: It's been known to be more muffin or scone-like, but it's still delicious. Filled with almond cream and topped with sliced almonds, Payard Patisserie Las Vegas sells a whopping amount of these, as well as Macarons: Get as many as you can (afford) in as many flavors as you can handle. There are so many to choose from, and we wouldn't blame you for getting one of each.
A “bit of civility among the pandemonium” of Caesars Palace, this “small,” “tucked-away” French bistro/patisserie serves “simple, tasty” Gallic grub, but it’s the “drool”-worthy, “almost-too-beautiful-to-eat” pastries that are the “decadent” stars of the show here; P.S. breakfast and lunch only, though the takeaway sweets counter stays open late.
Part chocolate shop, part pastry shop and part full-service dining room, Payard Pâtisserie & Bistro is the brainchild of French pastry chef François Payard. The centerpiece of his Las Vegas venture is a floor-to-ceiling chocolate clock which displays nine different time zones and dispenses free truffles.
