A casual dining spot in Caesars Palace, Serendipity 3 is particularly famous for its desserts and ice cream. The giant sundaes are literally bigger than a child's head, and there are also brownies and a very popular double frozen hot chocolate. How it manages to be both hot chocolate and frozen, we do not know. Open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and on into the evening, this place also serves massive, "dinosaur-sized" BBQ ribs, meatballs, spaghetti and the like.
