6 Eggs-cellent Easter Brunch Picks
For many Seattle families, going to a restaurant for Easter brunch is as traditional as Easter baskets, chocolate bunnies, and plastic eggs. It’s also a great excuse to enjoy a fine dining experience with your kiddos (dressed in their cute Easter duds!) and to sit back and enjoy a mid-morning holiday meal while someone else does the cooking and cleaning. Since many Seattle restaurants start taking Easter reservations weeks in advance, we’ve rounded up these six spots for you to try – they range from the traditional to the not so traditional, depending on how committed you are to things like deviled eggs, hot cross buns and a ham-carving station.
1. BluWater Bistro
BluWater Bistro’s Easter brunch is a double-down – they are serving brunch at two of their locations, Leschi and Green Lake, and for two days – both Saturday and Sunday of Easter weekend! They are offering their full brunch menu, as normal, plus an Easter brunch special for $11. For kids, they have a fantastic selection of brunch sides that are a perfect portion for little tummies. Plus, after brunch at either location, go run around at the parks next door to burn off the syrup rush! Good to know: Reservations are recommended and available online. Regular menu prices apply.

2. Café Campagne
For a little taste of France for your Easter brunch, head down to Pike Place Market to eat at Café Campagne, located just inside Post Alley. The menu includes some serious brunch food that will push your Easter brunch limits in the best possible way – from French Toast for the kiddos to the Oeufs En Meurette for the adults, a French-style Easter brunch may be a new family tradition at Café Campagne. Good to know: Reservations are highly recommended and available online or by phone. Regular menu prices apply. Brunch available on both Saturday and Sunday.

3. Daniel’s Broiler
An Easter brunch with a bit of a Northwest seafood flare, the Daniel’s Broiler locations in Bellevue, Leschi and Lake Union are serving a three-course menu where you can pick from specialty main dishes such as a Dungeness crab omelet or scrambled eggs with lox. Is your mouth watering yet? Daniel’s has made special Easter brunch considerations for the kids too… Older children can choose from a larger children’s menu with favorites like French toast and scrambled eggs and little ones (age five and under) can order a scaled-down version. Good to know: Advanced reservations are highly recommended. Adults are $35 for the three-course brunch, children ages 6-10 are $10 and kids ages 5 and under dine free.

Known as one of Seattle’s best catering and special events companies, Kaspar’s pulls out all the stops for Easter brunch at their location in South Lake Union.

5. Mondello Ristorante Italiano
If your family is looking for a fresh new take on Easter brunch, celebrate it at Mondello’s where Easter brunch means savory dishes such as house-made lasagna, Eggs Florentine, and antipasti, all served buffet-style at Mondello’s cozy location. Having Easter brunch at Mondello’s is a far cry from being at a huge brunch in a ballroom with a bunch of strangers on Easter – it’s the next best thing to having brunch at home! Good to know: Reservations are recommended, but walk-ins are welcome as well. $30 per person.

Good to know: Advance reservations are required by phone or online. $65 for adults and seniors, $22 for children (ages 4-12) and free for the 3 and under crowd.
