I will be bringing my parents with to vegas for a week with my brother next month. They are not cheap by any means but refuse to pay $5 for a cup of coffee at the newstand cafe inside wynn, tableu and terrace pointe cafe. Im usually gambling between 5-9am so i wont be with them.

Are there are places within a 5-10 minute walk around these resorts where they can get coffee at a reasoanble price along with a scone, donut etc.

Im not much of a breakfast guy so i cannot help much.

Is there a McDonalds around that area?

I don't get it.  So they would leave the Hotel they're staying at.  Walk across the street like  1/4 to 1/2 mile just to save a buck for a cup of coffee.

Anyone who might girl about $5 coffee shouldn't girl about walking north on Strip a block or two to a good McD across from Riviera, near Westward Ho. If they use a coupon they can have a free pull on a giant slot machine and get a free margarita after their McGriddle.

I kind of agree, darn the Wynn on this point. Last time I stayed there I think they did not have in room coffee. Really odd for a five star hotel these days.

You may wanna ask the concierge, I bet you dollars to donuts they bring a little set up to your room like 95% of the other hotels do these days. I did not try this but looking back......

The rest of the service at the Wynn was top notch. Ask, you will be surprised.

When I was there last time I paid $27 for a glass of wine and a sandwich in the little coffee place. darn me!
