Even though Easter feels a little early this year, none of our Twin Cities restaurants were caught off guard. Check out 28 Easter brunches happening in 2018. They’re all fantastic, but we couldn’t help but tell you a little more about four of our favorites:

Nicollet Island Inn Easter Brunch. Even on a normal day, the Nicollet Island Inn is one of the most quaint and idyllic places you can eat in Minneapolis because of its Mississippi River views and antique detailing, and on Easter they tailor the menu and the atmosphere to create the sunny and charming brunch you’ve been looking for. Enjoy a five-course Scandinavian meal (three course for the kids!) that begins with fresh pastries, has multiple options for each course that include quiche, creamy cauliflower soup and Swedish meatballs (of course), and ends with chocolate mousse or almond genoise cake.

St. Genevieve Easter Brunch. A two-course prixe menu provides the perfect meal to fill you up without leaving you too drowsy while you’re visiting with family. Besides spring-focused dishes like salmon tartare, terrine of spring hen and stewed chick peas, other accompaniments include Spyhouse coffee, sparkling beverages, oysters, beignets, carrot crepe cakes and more.

Surly Easter Brunch 2018. Surly knows just how to blend an endless buffet, comfort and festivities for their Easter Brunch. From 10 a.m.-4 p.m., you have your choice of food from pastries, cheese and meats, a carving station, a seafood station and a huge main buffet area that includes breakfast and side favorites. Everything goes down easy with the Surly brews on tap plus some specialty infusions. To make the brunch even better, at 12:30 p.m. there’s an Easter Egg Hunt with, as they eloquently put it, “a guy in an Easter Bunny suit.”

Windows on Minnesota at the Marquette Hotel Easter Brunch. Windows on Minnesota event space is aptly named for its floor-to-ceiling windows that provide expansive views of the Minneapolis skyline. To add even more ambiance, the Marquette has slotted live music, and for fun, they made sure the Easter bunny would be there, too. Enjoy a suite of options that include truffle risotto with mixed mushrooms, assorted cheese cakes, and lamb leg stuffed with pine nut, garlic and pesto.
