Serendipity 3 – Las Vegas, Nevada

The Serendipity 3 is located outside of the Caesars Palace, and it’s a wonderful place for lunch, or a snack… even a dinner! We went there for a late breakfast, early lunch – and it’s really a neat location.

You have the option to sit inside or outside, but unfortunately, when we asked for an outside table, they just ran out. Serendipity 3 becomes packed with hungry guests really quickly.

They serve everything from frozen hot chocolates, to sandwiches, and even hearty meat dishes – which allows them to serve all sorts of appetites and all different times of day!

I ordered the “High Heel Pump” with sweet potato fries and it was really tasty of a Sandwich. It tasted really light, and the portion size was enormous! I think it could have had more Prosciutto as I barely tasted it. It felt like it was overwhelmed with extra virgin olive oil and the tomatoes and cheese.

We also had the Skirt Steak with Steak Fries, and that was cooked to perfection! It was one of our more memorable dishes we had during our trip for lunch.

We realize that Serendipity 3 is known for it’s frozen hot chocolates, however, we weren’t in the mood for one that afternoon. We’ll be sure to try it out next time!

Jean Philippe Patisserie – Las Vegas, Nevada

Walking through ARIA Resort, we were greeted by Jean Philippe Patisserie each time we went to and from the casino to the elevators to get to our suite. Seeing the delicate cakes, chocolates, gelato, mini wedding cakes and much much more, I knew I would have to stop by and enjoy some of his treats.

We tried a Vanilla Flan as well as Tiramisu, with iced coffee and we fell in love with the desserts from Jean Philippe. We couldn’t stop thinking about the desserts we have purchased, and we decided to get more the following evening.

The next round, we had a strawberry tart as well as a carrot cake, with chai tea latte. Again, it was really tasty. The strawberries here at home are far from sweet, red and ripe but the strawberries on the strawberry tart was sweet and tasty! The pastry from the tart was really flaky, and it had a hint of almond and pistachios taste to it. It was really delicate, and flavorful, yet not overwhelmed by sweetness.

The carrot cake was one of my favorites. The carrot cake itself was embedded in cheesecake, which was light, soft, creamy and smooth. The carrot cake was excellent as well. The delicate decorations on top of the cake really topped it off. These were one of the best desserts we have had in awhile! I have nothing but great things to say about it.

The neatest part, all the little fine details on the cakes and pastries itself… they’re actually edible! I thought the bottom of the carrot cake was a wrap or something, but it was a really delicate piece of chocolate!

Sure, upfront, $6.00 for a pastry/cake could seem like a lot, but to taste such impressive french pastries and mini cakes really made it worth while!!
