Coffee Cup Café (Boulder City, NV)

What trip to Vegas is complete without a drive in the desert and a visit to the Hoover Dam? Inspired by one of my TV guilty pleasures – Diners, Drive-ins and Dives – we stopped at the Coffee Cup Café in Boulder City just a few miles before the dam. This spot is classic, what I would consider a typical small town diner.

The menu is also classic, serving up breakfast fare with southern and southwestern influences. We were extremely happy with our choices of the Pork Chili Verde Omelet and the Chicken Fried Steak, each served with your choice of hash browns or a short stack.

Even as a tourist, I felt the connection to the community here – a table full of local firefighters, elderly patrons sitting at the counter reading the paper, the sign guy out front fixing up the front window while neighbours stopped by to chat. I came for the food, stayed for the love.
