Typically, Easter Sunday brings a welcome splash of pastel Spring colors into our lives. While we have our fingers crossed for a lovely Spring day this April 9th, the seven-day forecast suggests the Easter bunny may be too busy hiding eggs to deliver the sunny weather we’re all craving. However, lovers of seasonal holidays (and reasons to enjoy brunch) won’t let a little rain get in the way of this traditional springtime celebration.
Rain or shine, Easter brunch brings families and friends together, nowhere more so than in Downtown Novato, where many popular local restaurants are offering special Easter menus. To name just a few, Grazie has Easter menus for both brunch and dinner, with a spotlight on baked ham and lamb shank specials that are sure to satisfy the holiday palate.
Also on Grant Avenue, Finnegans Marin will be offering Easter brunch from 10 am and dinner from 5 pm, with both their regular menus and Easter specials to tempt you. Looking for some bubbles to brighten the occasion? Their menu includes “bubbly brunch” which promises to put the fizz in Finnegans.
With sweeping Marin views, brunch at Ayawaska Hilltop is always a special occasion. Throw a little Easter spirit into the mix and, as with all of our best local eateries, a reservation is recommended. Taking Mom for Easter brunch? Do things right with a little forward planning.
Other solid Easter Sunday brunch destinations include Perry’s Novato, the craft beer haven that is the Hopmonk Tavern, and traditional old-school breakfast destinations like Bacon and Marvin’s Restaurant.
If you’re looking for a traditional Easter feast, there are plenty of places in Novato that will be happy to welcome you this coming Sunday. Don’t forget to make a reservation, because Easter brunch is always a popular choice!
