3. Eggslut at the Cosmopolitan
There isn’t much inside the Cosmopolitan you could describe as cheap (and really, no complaints on that), so the fact that you can get a breakfast sandwich with a national cult foodie following for less than $10 here is impressive.

Pro tip: Eggslut is a grab-and-go spot—there’s no dedicated seating—but across from it there’s a cool Alice in Wonderland-themed common area (complete with large smoking caterpillar and March Hare statues) that you can have mostly to yourself in the morning hours.
4. District: Donuts. Sliders. Brew. at the Cosmopolitan
The Block 16 Urban Food Hall at Cosmopolitan is a mecca of cult food favorites from around the country, including District Donuts out of New Orleans.

Pro tip: Stop by later in the day for a mezcal cocktail and mole nachos at Ghost Donkey, the hidden cocktail bar tucked away in the back of Block 16. Just head straight back through the seating area to the “Exit” door marked with a donkey.
