From McCarran Airport, take the I-215 west to I-15 north.  Exit I-15 at Sahara Ave., turn left (west) on Sahara (traveling under the freeway).  Drive 1.7 miles – Pastry Palace is on the left (south) side of Sahara Ave., located between Arville St. & Decatur Blvd.



Thanks to the popularity of our city for visitors from around the world, there are flights available into Las Vegas from virtually every airport and at pretty much any time of day or night.  Note that the sooner you plan your travel, the better your pricing options will be.  So book early for the best rates!



Car Rental
