This is not technically a restaurant, but it's definitely worth the drive.
Located near Centennial Hills, the Retro Bakery is one of those hidden gems that everyone in Vegas should know about. Kari, the owner, has a blond mohawk and a very active Twitter account (I follow her), and the ups and downs of a bakery are fascinating to read about.
In the end, it's all about the buttercream.
With cupcakes ranging from pink lemonade to coffee and donuts, the treats are as whimsical as they are delicious. We've used Retro Bakery for both of Scotty's birthday parties (banana/cotton candy for year 1; toasted coconut/chocolate for year 2. Both were two layer cakes, hence the two flavors). For Brian's birthday this year, I went with a pumpkin spice cake with green and yellow fondant and sparkles.
It did not disappoint.
They make cookies, too. Yum!
Incredibly family-friendly, although I recommend against bringing a hungry toddler with you.
