Need a cake, some pastries or maybe some scones? Try one of these great bakeries in Las Vegas.
1 Jean Philippe Patisserie
Jean Philippe Patisserie at Aria lacks the floor-to-ceiling chocolate fountain of their Bellagio location, but features plentiful seating for fascinating people watching. The dessert oasis right in the middle of Aria's casino floor features a full menu from a single, artisan chocolate bite to lunch spot favorites. They'll even pack meals to-go in airline friendly packaging. But it's the shifting variety of expertly crafted desserts poised behind the glass cases, that pull the players from gambling steps away. The added gelato and crepe choices make a single visit an impossibility.
2 Bouchon Bakery
The legendary name of chef Thomas Keller isn't only attached to his revered Bouchon Bistro. Off the Venetian's casino floor, Bouchon Bakery tempts with sweet and savory treats that aren't just for breakfast. Choose from croissants, muffin or a lemon tart, or gravitate to fulfiiling soups and sandwiches. Don't forget to pick up at least one macaroon for a late afternoon pick-me-up.
3 Gimme Some Sugar
The creators of choice for cakes to impress the rich and famous. Seen in paparazzi photos of nightclub celebrations up and down the strip, Gimme Some Sugar's celebrity fans include Kim Karadshian, 50 Cent and Paris Hilton. But, their elaborate theme cakes area available to anyone. From single tiers, to over the top creations only limited by your imagination. Sharable cakelets, mini versions of their larger concoctions, are so good you'll momentarily wonder if they look too good to eat.

4 Freed’s Bakery
A mainstay at Las Vegas weddings or celebrity parties, Freed's has notched half a century of serving the city.

The store even features individual cakes slices cut from their roster of famous wedding and extravagantly inspired cakes.
