There’s bound to be a day during your stay in Vegas when nothing goes according to plan. You overslept, someone isn’t answering their phone, and you missed the omelet station at this morning’s breakfast buffet. Thankfully, there’s always Market Street Cafe in the California Hotel. It’s large enough for last-minute groups and everything on this Hawaiian diner’s menu is great. The two real stand-outs, though, are the prime rib special (available from 3-10pm) and the oxtail soup which is only available from 11pm-8am, but is the best thing they serve. Just be sure to look at your phone while you’re eating, in case that one friend finally decides to respond to your frantic texts.
